Default Which 17.5 motors have built in temp sensors?

I don't know them all, but of the motors I've used(Novaks, Revtechs & Schurrspeeds), the Schurrspeeds do NOT have a temp sensor, but the other two brands do(found out because my Hobbywing V3.1 Stock Spec ESC also does basic data logging, of the motors I have, only my Schurrspeed showed no data for motor temp, & upon further research, I heard from them that they just don't use them)....

LRP X20 do, not sure if I works with all ESCs, but combined with a flow you get max temp logging.

LRP X20, Viper VST, Hobbywing V10, and I THINK the Orion/Peak as well.

I am sure there are others I do not know of too.

I run the Super Vortex Zeros and all these work

Tekin Gen1 and Gen2
Trinity D3.5 and D4
Revtech Killshots
Reedy mach 2

For Trinity D3, you can buy a D3.5 sensor and put it in and you will have temp on those motors as well.

I have an LRP Flow WorksTeam and a Reedy Sonic 540 Mach 2 17.5, and the thermal reading doesn't seem to work for me? Any possible solution, or is it just incompatible?

Team Wave Eclipse as tcboy already said, I can see the temp colour as the car drives around the track, very useful

The thermal reading for the Reedy Sonic Mach 2 works on the HW v3.1. So it maybe incompatible with Flow Works.
