Overview
The HV Pro Series of ESCs are APD's high performance, small footprint products, offering maximum results for your use case.
The APD developed (proprietary) firmware ensures unmatched low-throttle and starting characteristics. Ultra-smooth starting and ramp-up characteristics ensure your drive-train is safe. Features include PWM-frequency dithering to avoid PWM-commutation synchronisation, adaptive motor timing advance and proprietary developed Active Phase-Current De-magnetisation (APCD). APCD, along with Synchronous rectification ensure maximum ESC efficiency is achieved.
    Designed and manufactured in Australia using only the highest quality components, ensuring no sacrifice in reliability.
    Aerospace-grade ceramic capacitor bank for lowest possible ESR and maximum reliability. No more dried up electrolytic failures.
