Hobbywing XR8 Plus ESC
High Reliability & Durability
Built with the most rugged and high-quality components and coupled with cutting-edge
firmware, the XR8 PLUS is able to deliver unmatched power and performance for even
the most hardcore of racing applications, but is also responsive enough to protect itself
from damage due to overloading due to physical abuse, overuse or even human error.
Great Flexibility & Versatility
With strong torque and excellent output, the XR8 PLUS can definitely cater for all
the power hungry requirements that professional drivers need. The highly
adjustable parameters of the ESC will allow drivers to enjoy smooth throttle
response when the throttle/brake linearity is utmost required.
High Voltage Built-in BEC
The XR8 PLUS is the world’s first 1/8th ESC that integrates a HV built-in BEC with an output
current of up to 15 Amp and a switchable output voltage of 6V-7.4V. The high voltage BEC is
designed to handle today’s high voltage servos on demand used by 1/8th scale vehicles.
Ultra-Reliable Cooling System
HOBBYWING’s patented cooling technology utilizes
proprietary heat-conductive copper bars to rapidly and
effectively transfer all internal heat from the MOSFET board
to the integrated CNC machined billet aluminum heatsink
housing. The cooling fan adopts a shockproof mounting
which effectively reduces the possibility of fan damage due
to vehicle’s frequent jumps.
The XR8 PLUS provides an exceptionally smooth off-throttle coasting function (patent pending),
which simulates the feeling of inertia and momentum of a large-scale car driving experience. This
can greatly improve the performance of builds utilizing large, high-powered motors as
electromagnetic drag becomes a substantial factor in sudden deceleration when in the off-throttle
position, adversely affecting driving performance and overall maneuvering.
Advanced and Secure Electronic Switch
The XR8 PLUS features an electronic switch with a lifespan of over 50000 on/off cycles,
housed in a completely waterproof, dust-proof and shock-resistant design.
Virtually Maintenance Free Operation
Because of the exceptional thought and design put into
the XR8 PLUS, users can expect a virtually maintenance
free operating experience, due to advanced error
sensing and thermal protection, an exceptionally
rugged housing, the ultimate in heat-dissipation
technology and a special shockproof fan mounting able
to withstand anything that a racer can throw at it.
High Performance Dynamic Timing Algorithm
The world’s first 1/8th scale competition ESC which has
adopted dynamic timing technology, which has had great
successes in 1/10th scale touring car competitions for a long
time now, will greatly expand the adjustable power output
range of the ESC while still maintaining the overall system
efficiency and smoothness.
