I just bought a new SP Ver.3 motor 17.5T, hooked it up to my SP Rev Pro but no throttle (motor not turning). Try to calibrate the ESC after firmware v22 updated, no beep sound in the ESC, but the orange led blinks. I can feel the motor staggering but no turns. Any advice on this?

I've been running a novak high rev 10.5 ballistic motor the whole day like 5 packs on my Reventon R with boost. No shut down whatsoever.

Hi solara, do I need to upgrade my Reventon R firmware to the one you posted? I'm using stoc01

What's the benefit of upgrading to this new firmware anyway?

Airflow the v 20 stock1 firmware is only for the pro at the moment not sure if its being release for the r but the new firmware is meant to help mid power

If any of the sp boys could tell us about if the r gets the shock1 v20 ?

Will the Reventon Sock Club work with a Trinity Revtech 17.5t or D3.5 17.5t motor?

Well, the new program for the pro has definatley sorted out the mid range problems. However, the brakes have now become too soft so, well done but please keep at it.

Well got my replacement Reveton Pro in and noticed that it looks like they tightened the case to hard because , it is cracked around the screws, is there a way I can order a new bottom for the ESC, I sure don't want to send it back, I just waited two weeks for this one. Any suggestions anyone?

If you are using Stock1 V20, set initial brake force to 30-50%.

WMGary, I have try using another sensor cable, but still no turn on my motor. Do I have to change the capacitor? Or should I send it back and claim for warranty? But how?
