It does software upload and ESC adjustment, plus alot more feature that can be use for RC racing. We can all leave the netbook at home.

Stay tuned...
Sounds awesome, now what will it cost... Better be free if you already have a lcd program card...

A Hall sensor is what is used within the motor to detect the rotor position. They are mounted on a little removeable board in there. I don't personally know of any way to test them independently of running them.

If you have rough throttle response or slow motor speeds, it's probably a sensor problem. You can try cleaning the Hall sensor in the motor (because of the open slots in the v3 motor, I once had a problem with it because of fluff), or you can try replacing the sensor board and sensor wire with known good ones.

If that doesn't work, it might be a sensor problem within the ESC, which is not realistically repairable at home.

Yes...motor sensor went bad. Very typical when running SC on stock motor. Open up the can and carefully remove the sensor, then brush it off...alot of time, it is some little dirt or things that cause the circuit screw up. Alot of the time after this clean up...will solved the problem.

Try it....if not working, then you will need a new sensor board. Contact your shop and see they can order one or contact our office to place the order.

Try here....between 17.5 and 13.5 is mainly gearing, 13.5 geared taller then 17.5, like 2-3T smaller pinion.

Exactly. I'm a PC person too but with an Iphone. Most apps cost a buck but generally you can get them free after they get popular enough. Who doesn't have a jailbroken Iphone nowadays?

Anyways, Any details to how the app will interface with the speedo? Will we still need to program card? Second, are you guys are also going to need to sell another cable or something to use with the app because the way I see it theres no way to connect to the device with the current hardware.
