I want to make sure I understand this...

On REVENTON "S" ESC..........after loading the STOCK0 (blinky mode) software onto the ESC, the included LED CARD will NOT read the ESC? But if you hook up the ESC to the computer (PC, not Apple) it can only adjust the parameter via the REVENTON INTERFACE...?

Is that correct...?

If so, I will have to recreate that myself and give you guys a solution. I just want to recreate the problem and see it myself.

My 1st indication is....you guys need to update the LED card firmware to V1.2 instead of the V1.1 or V1.0...

You are correct.

I do have 1.2 loaded.

I'm having some other problems with the Reventon S. I will email or pm you. Don't want to put it out on the web.

OK....for those that has LED card not reading the STOCK0 blinky software, please try to connect the ESC and the LED card but have the FAN unplug. Please see that work or not...

OK...here you go. If you don't have the latest software, download this again and install it...

http://www.speedpassion.net/uploadfi...08-21-2012.zip

Within the new interface, there is a latest V1.3 Programmer card interface that we all need to upload in order to have the LED card to read the STOCK0 setting (blinky...)

I thought V1.2 is the latest but I am a version too old already, the V1.3 within is the latest, please update that. And our office tested it and it read the card without any problem on STOCK0 Blinky mode....

How interesting! Bye bye, Thunder Power... About when will the new motors be released? I'll need a motor for my 4WD early in February.

Try do a clean update for the LED card....use the latest V1.3. I have tried my LED card from version V1.1 to V1.3 and all working with the Stock0 software.

My software guy told me if there was a error or interruption of the update for the LED card, the card will act weird...

Give the V1.3 a try.....

My notebook isn't taking the firmware correctly. I put firmware in my pc. And then flashed the box and esc. Everything works correctly now. Just can't use my notebook. The firmware crashed my wife's notebook everytime I turned the esc switch on.

My other problem with the Reventon S is making me mad. So the GT2 pro is back in the car. Howard, I will try to type an email or pm to explain the problem.

I wonder wether I should stalk Marc F, who lives just a few kilometers away or if it proves to be more successful to bother my dealer Toni R to send me some pics of his brother's ride to show me what the motor I'll preorder looks like...
