*RC HOBBY APPLICATION RATING: 90 amps for the duration of a single 5,000mAh battery pack with the ESC in contact with a 5 mph airflow of 25C(77F) or cooler air. Controller temperature must never exceed 100C(212F). Exceeding current or temperature ratings may damage componentsand may shorten the life of the ESC. Always verify system current drawat full-throttle. Decrease load or increase airflow to decrease theESC’s operating temperature.
**Peak indicates amperage sustainable for 0.5seconds - long enough for most servos' current draw transients. Alwaysconfirm servo servo current draw before the first flight of the model.
This is a high power product with the potential to be very dangerous.Please read the safety information before use. This product may containchemicals known to the State of California to cause cancer and or birthdefects or other reproductive harm.

Power System Alerts:
The Talon ESCs are programmed to sound a number of tunes and codes using the motor as well as flashing LED patterns to alert users to certain conditions regarding their power system, such as over temperature, excessive load and locked head speed.
Telemetry has the potential not only to improve the safety of our models by monitoring battery voltages, ESC temperature, and other critical parameters, but it also creates other opportunities to get even more fun out of flying because you’ve essentially reduced the risks of “unknown” inevitable crashes. Think of the benefits to be had from alarms that will sound to warn you when there's interference about or if your receiver battery is running unexpectedly low. Requires purchase of Castle Telemetry Link for S.BUS2 (Item # 010-0152-00) and compatible Futaba Radio or Castle Telemetry Link for X-BUS (Item# 010-0148-00) and a compatible Spektrum Radio.
