RAPIDA Series

RAPIDA Series Competition Class Top-of-the-line ESC.

RAPIDA and RAPIDA Pro feature 14-gauge JRM-approved connectors or European Connectors (C), with color variations including black (BL), semi-transparent blue, and metallic blue (MB).

Features

Unparalleled amazingly low on-resistance value!!
The next dimension in basic ESC performance

How can we get battery performance to transmit directly to the motor?
A big step in this direction is a low on-resistance (loss) value. RAPIDA Series ESCs suppress actual values to cut on-resistance to one half that of previous competition class ESCs. Top speed, fuel consumption, torque, and other ESC-dependent basic performance factors are also improved. Also, an AGCS provides amazing improvements in energy efficiency, while anti-noise measures are strengthened both in terms of hardware and software.

User-configurable ESC characteristics

People often talk about ESC characteristics using terms like "punch," "smooth running," and "torque curve." The thing that determines these output characteristics is the electrical signal on/off cycle (frequency) in accordance with throttle opening. A low frequency value is tied to punch while a higher value produces smoothness.
The RAPIDA Series lets you freely adjust this frequency to one of up to 200 steps for optimum characteristics to suit your motor, your vehicle model, and the course. In addition, not only drive, but also braking and neutral braking all can be adjusted (on certain models). All of this means that the RAPIDA Series gives you 200 types of ESC just on the drive side. Configuring these settings does not require a computer or any external device.
All of this makes the RAPIDA Series the dream-come-true ESC that lets you discover optimum points as you are driving a course.
