The Velineon VXL-3m forward/reverse electronic speed control simplifies brushless technology with easy, built-in profiles and intuitive programming.
The VXL-3m(TM) uses advanced circuit design with the smoothness and preisio of the best brushed systems. It sets up, operates, and programs just like the Traxxas XL-5(TM) family of ESCs so there's no tricky new procedures to learn. Traxxas' exclusive patented Training Mode(TM) is also included to limit full throttle to 50% for young or inexperienced drivers. For the most advanced users, the VXL-3m is equipped with two-stage low voltage detection to allow LiPo battery use, including powerful 11.1-volt 3S packs ! The VXL-3m is manufactured by Traxxas to ensure the highest level of quality and support and is backed by the Traxxas Lifetime Electronis Warranty.
Traxxas High-Current Connector
The VXL-3m ESC is equipped with the pateneted Traxxas high-current connectors for restriction-free current flow.
- Traxxas patented High-Current Connector maintains pure, unrestricted power flow from the battery to the brushless power system.
- 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.
- Wide range of battery options, including 6-12 cell NiMH or NiCad packs
- The patented Training Mode(TM) is an exclusive Traxxas feature that reduces the overall power output of the VXL-3m 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.
- Advanced 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.
- The 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-3m is programmable with three drive profiles:
- Sport Mode - Fwd / Brake / Rev
- Race Mode - Fwd / Brake
- Training Mode(TM) - 50% Fwd / Brake / 50% Rev
- Multi-color LED provides clear feedback
- Two-stage thermal shutdown protection protects the VXL-3m from overheating.
- Locked Rotor Protection(TM) prevents system damage by cutting power if the vehicle is stuck or the motor is bound.
- Battery Over-Voltage Protection(TM) causes the ESC to go into failsafe mode if the maximum input voltage is exceeded.
- 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.
- MOSFET design provides high-current output (326 amp peak) with incredibly low resistance (.0005 Ohms).
- Gold plated 3.5mm bullet connectors on 16-gauge Maxx® Cable flow full power to the motor without performance-strangling resistance.
