    I've just bought a pair of 10A ESCs. They have a switch on the pcb. They both work OK with the sw in either position. Can anyone tell me what they are for?
    They are to convert a toy truck to rc.

    Sorry, I've never joined a help forum before. I'll take a pic of it and post it.

    Attached photos of ESC. Can you tell me what the sw on the pcb is for?

    I'm uncertain on that one... the pics don't give any clues on the make/model... and the switch isn't big enough to think it's an on/off switch like some ( not many ) esc's have and you'd certainly would have noticed the motor not running when switching it if it were an on/off switch

    Perhaps someone else will stop by and have a clue

    A big thank you for your help. Sometimes I have more enthusiasm than knowledge, so I am sure that I will be back with more questions sometime.

    Yea, I was lost as well and was going ot ask for a link. That is weird that it would have a switch to turn the brake on and off. Very interesting.

    I can imagine that if you want to make quick direction changes, then the brake function could be a hindrance. I've used ESCs to control winches and levers, and the brake function was a nuisance.
