Castle Talon 120 HV, 120 amp ESC, 12S / 50.4 V
Castle Creations Talon 120 HV 120A 12S / 50.4 volt ESC
With a voltage input range from 3S to 12S LiPo, and a 120A* continuous amperage capability, it's capable of up to 6,000 watts of continuous power for a wide variety of heli and fixed-wing applications.
The Biggest BEC on the Block!
Talon HV 120 is the first high voltage controller to come out of the Castle factory with a built-in BEC. This powerhouse features a 20A peak BEC with selectable 6v or 8v output voltage. With a voltage input range from 3S to 12S LiPo, and a 120A continuous amperage capability, it’s capable of up to 6,000 wattsof continuous power for a wide variety of heli and fixed wing applications.
The sleek aluminum case keeps the ESC cool during high power demand situations. For set-ups with limited airflow, such as under canopies or in a fuselage, there is an optional 40mm fan (sold separately)
Talon HV 120 has access to Castle's industry leading software functions, and USB programming capability via Castle Link USB Adapter (coupon included).

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.
Coupled with our unparalleled 1-year warranty and world-famous technical support, Castle provides confidence and peace of mind that your Talon 120 HV is a smart investment. In this day of “throw-away” electronics, put your investment in a trusted name with a proven track record of support and service.
