The Genesis Hydra15 combo is a Forwards and Reverse Brushless Speed Control comlete with outrunner motor designed specifically for use in scale RC boats. It is aimed at entry level for people new to Brushless Speed Control.
The Genesis Hydra15 has a 15Amp Brushless motor limit, this is a rough equivalent to a standard, stock 540 can Brushed motor. The Genesis Hydra15 is best suited to small scale RC boats to be used at scale speeds.
Although the Genesis Hydra15 is the entry level model in the Genesis marine range it performs to a very high standard and is more than a match for any Brushed motor and speed control equivalent.
The Genesis Hydra15 Brushless speed control has been designed to fit straight into any RC model boat as a direct replacement for your Brushed speed controller. The set up is a no nonsense, one-step procedure making it very easy to get up and running within minutes! The Genesis Brushless Speed Controls designed for use in RC boats are all 100% waterproof giving you that extra peace of mind should the worst happen and you have to retreive your model from the graveyard under the pond!!
The Genesis Hydra15 benefits from 5 years worth of research and design work carried out by the Mtroniks design team with help from a few well known RC scale sailors. What this has resulted in is a Sensorless Brushless Speed Control that works and feels just the same as a Brushed Speed Control, giving you absolute control over the throttle with very smooth acceleration and the added bonus of longer run times when compared to Brushed Speed Control equivalents!
The outrunner motor is 1000KV which equates to 1000 revs per volt (of your battery pack) for example, 12000rpm when run on a 12V battery.
Genesis Hydra15 features:
- Easy one-step set up
- Smooth controlable acceleration
- 5 to 10 cells NiCAD or NiMH
- 2-3 cells Lipo
- 6-12V Lead Acid
- Automatic sensing of number and type of cells
- Current limit cut-off
- 3A Hyper BEC
- 3 Internal Schottky diodes
- Auto cut-off computer
- 100% Waterproof
The Genesis Hydra15 speed control is capable of an average discharge rate of 12A and a peak discharge rate of 15A making it a very capable & attractive option at such a low price! Ideal for your first steps into the world of Brushless marine modelling!
The 'return to base' software upgrade enables the user to return their ESC to Mtroniks to have the onboard software upgraded to the latest spec ensuring your ESC is never superceded!
