The Mantis Slim 80A brushless speed controller from ZTW is a small but incredibly powerful ESC from ZTW which boasts small dimensions and a powerful BEC. It can be programmed from the optional Air programming card or your transmitter and boasts burst current capacity of up to 100 amps.
The integrated switching BEC provides a 5.5V output at up to 8 amps for your receiver and servos.
The Mantis Slim series of controllers are based on the existing Mantis range of speed controllers. All are highly customisable through their programming options – for example the LVC can be set and also the motor acceleration, great for geared setups where a softer startup is normally required.
