Blinky has always worked with any turn motor. It was the boost software that has been under development.

If it has always worked with any turn motor then why did SP Tech state that it wasn't officially released or ready back on 10/12? I'm certainly glad that my Reventon S and R are working great in their intended vehicles but a little dismayed with the information that is coming out in this thread. It seems that everyone knows everyone thing yet no one knows anything. I hope that everything is truly sorted out when my replacement Reventon Pro shows up or I will just sell it and find something else to run in my mod touring car.

Sorry, I might have the wrong info. I guess the blinky software problem was with the Pro specifically (I've run it with the R and Club Spec). I'm not really in the loop anymore I guess.

I fell out of the loop while at the IIC for a week. I haven't really understood much of what is going on with the Reventon Pro since that time.

Not much, some mentioned that they "might" not work well with spec type slower motors until the new software is released. Which that happened here in last couple days. My Rev Pro has worked awesome with all motors though. No problems.

So just go to SP websight and upload the new v19 software and update to the uploader.

Blinkie never had a problem it was the stock-1 that was not ready. Stock-1 is boosted not blinkie. If u would still like to sell I'm in need of a pro.

I think now would be a good time for someone that is able to speak for Speed Passion to state what the latest versions of the software are for each speed control and all limitations if there are any.

also tonight i helped setup a reventon pro for 4wd mod buggy. one thing we noticed, was the car slowed up, and when battery voltage was checked it was at 6.2 V. lipo cut off was set to 3.4v per cell.
so just be carefull.

I just wanted one esc that can do everything so all I have to do is switch out motors and change programs. And like SpeedPassion.

I do know this. Just downloaded the pdf file of the Rev Pro manual and it has all the specs and motors specs in the online pdf. Im sure the others probably are the same.
