ZTW GECKO SERIES Airplane/Heli ESCs are competition-grade speed controllers from one of the most trusted RC electronics manufacturers in the industry. Advanced features found in Gecko Series ESCs include PC data logging, firmware upgradability, and more. Best of all, Gecko Series ESCs come standard with the ZTW quality, performance, and reliability you have come to trust.

The high power SBEC found in ZTW Gecko Series ESCs has been specifically designed for extreme aerobatics and therefore has the capability to support the higher momentary peak demand loads to eliminate the possibility of unwanted shutdowns, and is also capable of supporting continuous simultaneous multiple servo operations typically found in CCPM equipped hardcore 3D E-helicopters.

PLEASE READ: We've found the Gecko series ESCs to have compatibility issues with certain brands and sizes of motors which can cause timing/cogging issues. This issue does not affect every motor out on the market and there is a firmware update available for download which has proven to solve the issue for some users. We recommend these ESCs only to customers who know from previous experience or recommendation that their motor will work with Gecko speed controllers. Otherwise, we recommend you look at the ZTW Mantis Series controllers as we have found no reported compatibility issues with them. We've also found them to be one of the most reliable ESCs for the price on the market today.
