Turnigy 4×4 Mini Trooper and Monster Beatle ESC Upgrade or Replacement

The ESC in my Turnigy 4×4 Mini Trooper seemed to break and as such I was requiring a replacement.

If you need to replace and/or upgrade the ESC in either of these Remote Controls you can use the one below as a direct replacement. However, it won’t come with any connectors for the motor or battery, so you will need to order those items too and get them soldered on. It’s also a good idea to buy some of the heat shrink tube too.

And I would also highly recommend purchasing the programming card for the ESC, as the programming of the ESC for changes via the button on the ESC is difficult at best. It’s the part number below;

HobbyKing Remote Control Car Purchases

I wanted to purchase a remote control that my sons and I could use together, and it needed to have good parts support. i.e where parts could be purchased for every aspect of the car.

After some research I decided to give some of the products at HobbyKing a go.

I ended up purchasing two car’s, and the following items too, as the car’s come ARR (almost ready to run).

Will be doing more posts about these HobbyKing car’s we purchased, as it’s hard to know what to order when things break, so I will share my experiences with them.
