Victor 885 replaces the Thor 883. Improvements in FET technology
and switching technology allow the Victor 885 to handle 120A continuous.
The high current capacity, low voltage drop, and peak surge capacity
make the Victor 885 ideal for drive motors.
Forget robots. I got one of these to drive a golf cart motor to spin 2 people weighing 350 pounds on a 150 pound metal platform. Spun people over 5G's at 65 RPM! Google "Centrifury" and you will see what just one of these little motor controllers can do. It's unreal.
It made perfect sense to me to spend a few more coins and get the 883's big brother. We drove them to 2nd place at Motorama 2012.
Was running a NPC-T74 motor at 24 V This motor controller was totally abused and it kept running!
The size is tiny! The price is cheep for what it dose compared to others
This plus the Victor 883 I was running is going to make me an IFI fan for LIFE
Great performance for a small controller
I bought this controller for my crusher robot, to control a Dewalt motor.
The current stats are amazing and yes it can handle what I want it to which is great.
I only gave 4 stars because I found the calibration system hard to get right, might just be me not sure anyway when it was sorted 10/10!!!!
Easily handled the current my Vantec couldn't.
High current in a small package
These controllers need some tuning up for combat bots, but have the best current handling for their size & weight. As long as you don't short the exposed FET tabs, they are very reliable.

These things are amazing. As long as your fan keeps spinning, these will keep pumping the current to your motors. The only down side is that you need the signal drivers for non-ifi pwm sources.
