    aparently yes, both use the same chip (hobby wing)
    I believe the RC timer yellow esc's are also one and the same, i have used about 30 of each with one failure

    from what i understand, hobbywing are the mfg, turnigy and RCT are the Hobbywing re branded

    thanks Mat. hobbypartz.com sells the hobbywing so I can generate a small commission for the site by buying from them using the banner ad on the home page.

    Dave,
    No, they're for the new MK based AD-8HL build. I just don't have the scratch to go for the whole MK power set-up so I'm going to use ESC's and the I2c to PWM converter.
    I'm very curious to see if the converter and chinese ESC's can make the MK fly well enough to be used for photos and video.
    The CC board is going to use the XAircraft frame, motors, and ESC's.
    Flying again?
    Bart
