Reedy Blackbox 610R Competition ESC | CompetitionX

Reedy Blackbox 610R Competition ESC | CompetitionX

Reedy’s newest competition ESC, the Blackbox 610R, comes at us with updated hardware and new tuning options. Heavily tested by Reedy’s engineering team, this new ESC is said to be more reliable with great performance than the 510R.

On the outside, the 610R comes in a CNC-machined aluminum case with an integrated heatsink. It has an onboard on/off button (no more switches) and an ultra-low resistant FET board. Full control over throttle, brake, power and safety functions are all accessed via the Blackbox PROgrammer unit which can also be used to update the firmware.

What We Like:
Reedy’s ESCs have a special place in our heart – we were working at Team Associated during the advent of the brushless revolution. They look great and are full-features ESCs. The Blackbox PROgrammer is easy to use and is powered through the ESC. We also like that this ESC has a nice, small footprint, making it a good choice for just about any RC application.

What We’re Not Sure About:
We get the small size, but the hanging external capacitor can cause some mounting issues.
