Electronic Speed Controllers

The APD F-Series ESCs bring forward a ground-breaking new design utilizing a Powerful 32bit F3 running brand-new firmware developed from the ground up.
APD - 120F3 - X 12S 50V 120A ESC

The F3 processor ensures no input commands are missed, even at the highest input update rates. Its bleeding-edge features include PWM-frequency dithering, and Active Phase-current Demagnetisation to ensure the smoothest control at high power, whilst maintaining maximum efficiency.

Compatible with the latest Protocols including ProShot up to 3MBs/S.

With peak power ratings up to 9kW, these ESCs will have no trouble powering your craft.

Power Distribution Boards (PDBS)

 

APD - PDB360 - X 8S 34V 360A

apd 360

APD PDB360 - X 8S 34V 360A BOARD
The APD PDB360 is designed for high voltage and high current applications. It consists of 8 layers of heavy copper to sustain maximum current demand whilst dissipating minimal heat. This PDB can sustain up to 90A continuous to each ESC leg. Also features 12V 3Amp and 5V 1Amp regulators with a maximum of 8S (34V) input.
 
Signal and telemetry lines are sandwiched between the Negative (GND) layers to shield them from switching noise at high power levels. Negative (GND) layers on top to shield the Flight Controller from switching noise.
 
Further, it has double sided main input power pads which can be soldered or bolted to. It allows for flight controller mounting with standard 30.5mm x 30.5mm hole spacing. Solder tabs extend off the PCB to allow for thermal relief to make soldering easier.
 
Manufactured using ISOLA 185HR high performance dielectric glass fiber to sustain continuous high temperature scenarios.
 
Rest assured, your solder tabs won’t fail, even with 360A loads!
FEATURES:
4S-8S input
8 Layers of 3oz copper to each ESC
12V @ 3A switching regulator
5V @ 1A switching regulator
Overcurrent and short circuit protection on both 5V and 12V regulators
Has two main power inputs, modular battery
Thermal relief on all solder tabs to allow for easier soldering
2.5mm thickness for strength and reliability
58mm x 58mm in size
PCB rated for 180°C continuous
ISOLA 185HR dielectric glass fibre for maximum thermal performance
Designed and manufactured in Australia

APD - PDB500 - X 12S 52V 500A
