does seem a bit odd though...hw v3 came out after reventon and is alreadyy aproved acording to their forum
I know the product has the market appeal but without this endorsement its not going to get it market share
YES i thought some KPI might wake up marketing
all the best

Maybe approval is pending due to some software issues. When I wanted to order the Reventon R around here, I was asked to wait a little or go for the GT2.0 Pro instead.
Will there be a bug fix soon? Running a non-boosted 13.5 in my B-Max2 is starting to get boring, and I really want another SP ESC. However, I've started contemplating other ESCs, too...
Is the Cirtix Stock capable of handling a 6.5 Turn for about 7 Minutes in a 2WD/4WD buggy with enabled overheat protection? That might be an interim solution...

The other way to say is...the STOCK0 (blinky) software that we are going to use on REVENTON series ESC, we have to have ALL of the ESC available to sell publicly in order for them to list it. We are selling the REVENTON S, but not the R and the REVENTON PRO....and that might be the reason.

But I don't know why they are not simply list the STOCK0 software with Reventon S ESC only for now....it must be their system that I don't really know.

Boost software is testing right now...mainly need to test with MOD motor, then with stock motor, without blowing up the ESC.

Don't bother about running that setup on Cirtix, it won't work....

After loading the software onto the ESC, you must TURN OFF everything (radio and esc) and turn back on, and do the calibration with radio, then turn everything off again...then turn back on.

That happened to alot of the ppl....for the new ESC, after calibrate, it will turn off by itself.

Thanks for the quick reply! I'll probably get a 9.5 turn in this case...

here in aus the nature of the tracks require the r as i generally run 21.5 blinky

bigger tracks id run stock to avoid going to sleep during a race as the straights go on forever so i need one that can do both
stock overhere runs timing and boost in the 17.5 class
The products looksa ver cool
thanks for your reply

Double check your throttle trim is at 0, I have seen a couple time that the radio hd throttle trim and no "blinky led".
