Avian Smart Air ESC

Smart Technology — More connected for more self-confidence and control
Spektrum™ Smart Innovation has to do with providing a greater connection to your pastime. It's an RC ecosystem that puts you in total control while making essential parts of your design simpler to utilize than ever previously. Smart technology guarantees that all of your design's electronics interact effortlessly for the best effectiveness and efficiency. It keeps you familiar with every component's status, increases your self-confidence in its abilities, and makes your entire system more responsive and basic to use.
Spektrum radios with Smart features can download firmware updates quickly utilizing Wi-Fi and can swap setups with compatible radios through Bluetooth. Spektrum Smart LiPo batteries have an integrated microchip that records and interacts your charging preferences immediately to Smart chargers — simply connect your pack and press "Start." Smart IC™ series connectors include an innovative information wire that moves information easily between Smart parts with a single connection. Lastly, Smart ESCs not just provide power but also get rid of the hassles from running telemetry. The days of setting up and linking multiple wires, sensing units, modules and links are over.

Item Introduction
Like every component in the Spektrum™ Smart ecosystem, Bird™ Smart ESCs combine "plug-and-play" simplicity with the capability to communicate with other Smart electronics — together, creating the best-performing RC system for your airplane imaginable.
Avian Smart Air ESCs do much more than manage power. They function like a virtual engineer inside your design, providing a direct course to the essential operating information you require to reach peak efficiency. Bird Smart Air ESCs offer you an extra layer of self-confidence that your electronics are all operating at their best.
With Bird Smart Air ESCs, you'll be much better connected to your airplane than ever previously — without setting up extra parts that all work independently of each other. You won't require extra wires, modules, or links. An Avian electronic speed control offers a one-wire solution for obtaining telemetry information such as present, voltage, cell balance, temperature level and RPM.
Avian ESCs not just gather the information but also send it to your transmitter in real time, instead of just keeping it for after-run research study. You're able to change settings as needed to increase efficiency on the go. The Bird Smart single-wire telemetry solution has actually been tested for quality and efficiency by the finest brands in RC. Their verdict? Smart technology is both easier and superior!

Spektrum™ Smart Innovation




One-Wire Telemetry
No requirement to connect multiple wires, sensing units, modules, and links. With Bird™ ESCs, basic one-wire telemetry sends a large range of information directly to your transmitter in real time, including present, voltage, cell balance, temperature level and RPM.


EC3™/EC5™ Backwards Compatible
Bird™ ESCs include IC™ series battery connectors. The IC series of connectors are designed from the ground approximately supply a more solid connection, higher heat resistance, and simple and easy installation. When used with an IC3™ or IC5™ connector-equipped Spektrum™ Smart battery, the ESC can get and transmit battery telemetry information. EC3™ and EC5™ connectors are also compatible with Bird ESCs for standard operation and ESC telemetry.


Smart Innovation Battery Data
When used with a Spektrum™ Smart LiPo battery, your Bird™ ESC offers you with the advantage of battery telemetry that's immediately transmitted to your radio in real time. On your transmitter screen you'll exist with valuable information such as number of cycles, battery capacity used and staying, specific cell voltage and more!


Numerous Shows Options
Numerous programming options are readily available. Throttle stick programming can be used with nothing more needed. Using the Smart ESC Shows Box, you can easily alter settings at the field to suit flying conditions. A user friendly Smart Link USB Upgrading and Developer app is also readily available.
