4816 Kontronik Kosmik 160 HV ESC

The KOSMIK delivers sufficient power for the ambitious pilot at the established KONTRONIK reliability. With continuous current of 200A at 5 S to 14 S LiPo brings every model powerfully in motion. The continuous current is defined for a battery capacity of 10,000 mAh.

With its integrated and adjustable BEC, the KOSMIK even supports HV servos. Different modes for sailplanes, motorplanes, helicopters, boats and RC cars (including back and forth drive) make the KOSMIK flexible for many applications. Apart from a second helicopter mode with fixed RPM a spool up optimized for scale helicopters is implemented. The scope of delivery includes tailor made motor and battery cables as well as one BEC cable. Optionally available are special KOSMIK heat sinks which guarantee the maximum power of this ESC.

One important feature of the KOSMIK is the strongest BEC KONTRONIK has ever developed. With a voltage from 5 V up to 8 V and a current capacity of 7 A continuous and up to 20 A peak the KOSMIK is the ESC for the most demanding tasks. Two BEC ports allow for using full current when using the second BEC cable.

Screwed instead of soldered
No wires. This is maybe the first thing you notice looking at the new KOSMIK. In order to handle the enormous power the KOSMIK is provided with gold tabs instead of the familiar soldered cables. Before usage cables and tabs are connected via screws and cable shoes. This concept makes exchanging cables easy and forms a reliable high current connection.

Data interfaces
Therefore the KOSMIK, in addition to three connectors for sensors and telemetry, provides a fast micro USB port in order to give out and process operation data.

The well-known and proven KONTRONIK Mode-Programming is also implemented in the KOSMIK. Thus, the ESC is rapidly deployable and can be customized for different applications within the shortest possible time.

PROGDISC Compatible
The KOSMIK can be parameterized using the KONTRONIK PROGDISC. This allows to change individual parameters and helps to adjust the KOSMIK to your personal preferences.

Online Updatable
Of course, the KOSMIK is also updatable online. This allows software updates easily set at home. Long downtimes caused by sending and waiting are a thing of the past.

Equipped with two bi-colored LEDs the KOSMIK offers a wide range of signal outputs. These can be used for both diagnostic purposes, as well as for programming support.

As the first KONTRONIK ESC the KOSMIK offers the possibility of recording operating parameters internally. Internal recording delivers more detailed data than an external system could ever supply. With the high recording capacity and speed KONTRONIK delivers state-of-the-art technology.

MicroSD Card
All recorded data are written on a MicroSD card. This enables a flexible analysis of a great data volume.

If you want ease of mind for your heli then Kosmik 160 is the way to go. I chose it for the super BEC plus the outstanding adjusments via the transmitter not thru the computer, so I can go from mild to wid in seconds. Thsanks Heli Diect for he amazing products....


I have installed one of these in my Goblin 700 with the Quantum 500kV motor. Awesome combo. Good governor hold (88%) at 2200 RPM 23 tooth pinion. ESC barley gets warm after hard 3.5 minute flight 5000mA, 65C battery. I also use the integrated BEC with a Scorpion Guard as back up.


I have used Kontronic ESCs since I started in the Heli hobby. You can't beat the ease of setup with any of the Kontronik lineup. That paired with unparalleled reliability and excellent customer support make Kontronik products worth every penny of their purchase price. When you buy a Kontronik ESC it will likely be the last ESC you need to buy!


I bought this ESC for use in my Goblin 700 Competition. I use the Scorpion HK4525/520kv Ultimate Edition motor, Torq servos, and Pulse Ultra 65C batteries. I have been banging on this thing and it doesn't even get warm. The governor is 1st class, top-notch, THE best. It costs a little bit more than the competition, but you get what you pay for. This is the very best ESC on the market...period.


Great esc, lots of features, I use this on my Goblin 700, still running strong after a year of hard flying no problems at all.

Has great logging capabilities and you can add bluetooth features, fans and more.


This is the very best ESC on the market...period.
