There used a fair bit in Aus due to the price and performance. In Mod they go fine from what I can tell, in Stock (17.5) they need the optional 20,30+ timing boards to get up to speed of the trinity motors etc.

I reset the esc to my radio throttle end points. when I turn it on and the radio, everything works fine. I got steering and seem to have full control of the throttle. The battery cutoff is disabled.
When I turn it on, I get blink-blink-pause and this repeats. It may be possible that my battery is not fully charged. Is this what it does for a non-fully charged battery when the esc is in blinky mode? Or does this code mean something else?

thanks,
tim
just curious if you've figure out what was wrong and how your liking the esc. I'm thinking of getting one for 12 scale in 13.5 blinky. so any info would be great,

Well used in offroad. I've run SP stuff for 4yrs in SCT stock/mod, 4wd mod, 2wd stock/mod buggy...SP is the best value in the biz. Don't overpay for the others.

Hi guys,

Having troubles with my SP Reventon Pro 1.1

Lost connection during a firmware update and then always display messages "Update Failed" followed by "Reventon only can update firmware".

I tried to re-update the card, same result.
And the same in Safe Mode too.

Any idea to flash it ?

Thanks,

Jerem'

I have a Reventon R and 10.5 sensored motor combo. I have the LED card and software running properly.

The problem is that I have no forward. I only have reverse. The reverse is the full throttle that should be for forward. I have swapped the rev on the transmitter, but it just changes it on the transmitter, not the car. I have tried recalibrating the esc countless times.

A,B,C wires are correct. SP thinks it is my RTR Transmitter and Receiver, however it works fine with my Hobbywing (which does let you change motor rotation).

Any ideas? I am out.

Thanks.

I have a question.

I have Reventon Pro 1.1 ... I bought it from RC Mart Hongkong.

How to enable reverse function ?

I have the program card ( transparent blue box ) .... however I cannot change the inside menu option to forward, brake, reverse.

Which car ?

I once had a shaft driven car with the diffs mounted opposite what is normal for most cars. Most sensored esc motor combinations will not work in these cars.
