This is the Traxxas VXL-3S Electronic Speed Control. The Velineon™
VXL-3s forward/reverse electronic speed control simplifies brushless
technology with easy, built-in profiles and intuitive programming.
Tri-mode operation auto detects the motor type for brushed, sensored or
sensorless brushless motors. The VXL-3s™ uses advanced circuit design
that allows sensorless brushless motors to operate with the smoothness
and precision of the best brushed systems. It sets up, operates, and
programs just like the Traxxas XL-5™ family of ESCs so there’s no
tricky new procedures to learn. Traxxas’ exclusive patent-pending
Training Mode™ is also included to limit full throttle to 50% for young
or inexperienced drivers. For the most advanced users, the VXL-3s is
equipped with two-stage low voltage detection to allow LiPo battery
use, including powerful 11.1-volt 3S packs!
- The VXL-3s auto-detects the motor type for brushless and sensored brushless motors.
High-Current Connector eliminates a common bottleneck and maintains
pure, unrestricted power flow from the battery to the brushless power
- Built-in two-stage low voltage detection for Lithium
Polymer (LiPo) battery use provides a clear signal to the driver that
the battery pack is nearing its minimum voltage threshold.
- Widest range of battery options ranging from 4-cell NiMH or NiCad packs all the way up to 3S LiPo battery packs (11.1 volt)
patent-pending Training Mode™ is an exclusive Traxxas feature that
reduces the overall power output of the VXL-3s by 50%, making it easier
for new or younger drivers to control their model. When they’re ready,
simply change profiles to unleash full-throttle action.
circuit design allows sensorless brushless motors to operate with the
smoothness and precision of the best brushed systems. There’s no need
for additional sensor wiring and hardware complexity.
EZ-Set® push-button setup operates and programs just like other Traxxas
speed controls such as the XL-5. This eliminates the need to learn a
new set of procedures.
- The VXL-3s is programmable with three
drive profiles: Sport Mode – Fwd / Brake / Rev ~ Race Mode – Fwd /
Brake ~ Training Mode™ – 50% Fwd / Brake / 50% Rev
- Multi-color LED provides clear feedback
- Water resistent case design uses rubber seals and o-rings to protect against damage caused by water and moisture.
- Micro-fin aluminum heatsink dissipates heat.
built-in auxiliary fan output powers a snap-on accessory fan for
increased cooling capacity during extreme use. A handy clasp on the
speed control case keeps the wire neatly in place until you are ready
to use it.
- MOSFET design provides high-current output (320 amp peak) with incredibly low resistance (.00075 (ohm)).
plated 3.5mm bullet connectors on 12-gauge Maxx® Cable flow full power
to the motor without performance strangling resistance.
