HobbyStar 60A 1/10 Competition Sensored ESC With Turbo/Boost, V2

SKU: 360-10-062

Availability: Out of stock




A 60A version of the renowned HobbyStar 1/10 Competition ESC aimed at stock and limited class racing.  Unlike other "stock" class ESC's on the market, the HobbyStar 60A still offers all of the adjustments and features of the 120A version.  This ESC is ideal for Spec class racing requiring blinky mode, yet still has the flexibility to run 8.5T to 21.5T motors while retaining the ability to add turbo and boost timing as well.


The V2 HobbyStar 1/10 Competition ESC has the same buttery smooth operation as the original but adds a whole host of new programmable options to take this flagship performer to the next level.  As with the original, both Turbo and Boost timing can be programmed in as well as blinky mode for stock racing.  ESC now comes with power and motor leads already soldered on, and an updated triple capacitor bank.  New adjustment points include:


  • Race Mode and Stock Mode: Provide targeted base-profiles for both Spec and modified motors
  • Throttle IP limiter: To control initial power hit based on track conditions
  • Throttle Rate: Controls overall throttle power for varying track conditions
  • Drive Frequency: To fine-tune the throttle feeling from smooth to aggressive
  • RPM Lock: Allows locking in a specific RPM for drifting applications
  • I-Brake Response: Controls the initial brake power response to the motor for varying track conditions
  • Brake Rate: Controls overall brake power for varying track conditions
  • Brake Frequency: To fine-tune the brake feeling from smooth to aggressive
  • Boost Trigger Rate: To set the speed of boost timing application


Other standard adjustment points include: Running mode, Low voltage cutoff, ESC overheat protection, Motor rotation, Dead band, Throttle curve, Initial brake, Drag brake,
Brake force , Brake curve, Boost timing, Boost trigger level, Turbo Timing, Turbo Start RPM, Turbo delay, Turbo activation method, Turbo ON rate, Turbo OFF rate.

Great ESCReview by Tommy G
Best ESC for the price. You can fine tune from brakes to boost to Turbo with the program card. Blows other ESC's out of the water for the price range. I purchased 4 of these ESC's for my 1/10 Buggys. Could not be happier. Thanks RC Juice. (Posted on 11/20/2020)

What drag brake settings does it have? I'm looking for the actual percentages that you can use. Thank you, Brian
You can select from 0 to 100% drag-brake in 1% increments.

Is this esc roar approved? How long are the motor and battery leads?
At this time it is not ROAR approved. We will be submitting some of our competition 1/10 ESC's for ROAR approval late this year, early next year.

I have a 8.5t ezrun hobby wing is this a good esc
8.5t is the motor limit for this ESC. This ESC and our 120a version would both handle your motor, no problem.

The program card and USB link for this ESC have been out of stock for some time. Is it compatible with any other brand or model ESC programmer?
Unfortunately no, they are not compatible with any other programmers. Our shipment will be in next week, we have been at the mercy of overseas shipping during the covid crisis, so as you can imagine, things have not been moving swiftly.
