The Falcon product line represents advanced speed controllers for exclusive use in airplanes, drones, sailplanes or any kind of radio control application. With integrated telemetry and various possibilities of optional user configuration, the controllers offer high efficiency, low weight and precise motor control. The telemetry system in the Elite Falcon ESC lets you monitor in real time the Amperage (Amp), Voltage (V), and Capacity (mAh) consumed from the battery, ESC even calculates Power (W) output of the system. You can also measure the ESC Temperature and add external Motor Temperature and Propeller Positioning sensors. We have created a more robust hardware platform including increased cooling capability, smaller overall packaging, and selectable sensitivity to allow you to use any brushless motor that you choose. No matter which size you choose, the Elite Falcon series brushless speed controllers are right for your next project.
The USB programmability allows you to update the ESC to the latest firmware right from home using Jeti or Elite USB Adapter and your PC with MAV Manager. Fine tuning of your power system has never been easier.

Active Freewheeling (Active Motor Breaking)
Brand new feature of the speed controller that reduces heat generated by the ESC during partial load operation. This mode is useful for 3D extreme and F3A precision aerobatic pilots who want not only fast acceleration, but also rapid deceleration. The motor follows throttle stick input in both ways and the pilot feels more completely in control.
Current Limiter (Active Power Monitoring)
The current limiter is a part of safety controller features. It does not stop the motor but rather continuously monitors the immediate current consumption and adjusts the motor power. You can enable this feature, specify the maximum allowed current and the ESC will reduce the motor power immediately as soon as the current threshold is exceeded. After the current returns back to the safe level, the motor power is restored.
Propeller Positioning (Hall Effect Magnetic Sensor)
The positioning feature allows moving the motor/propeller to the exact position required for safe landing, or which is just comfortable for further flying. With just a few external components (Hall-sensor and a small magnet) you can enable this feature and prevent the risk of damaging your propeller during landing or (Scale Sailplane) motor pod/folding prop retraction. The magnet needs to be properly fixed to the rotating part (either motor or the propeller), and the Hall-sensor has to be located in the fuselage, so that the magnet matches the Hall-sensor at the target propeller position. After enabling the positioning feature in the menu, set also the positioning PWM, so that the motor spins slowly but smoothly.
