ESC
Electronic Speed Control. This device controls the throttle function on electric surface vehicles and aircraft. Some ESC's come with an automatic shut-off feature that simply shuts the motor down if the voltage in the battery becomes too low. This is done to conserve power for servos that operate the control surfaces (usually on aircraft).
