They have never given us a direct answer on Windows 10. Still trying to make sure everything is working as planned.

I really like the products they are putting out

Up date on infoHi I have a G-force 120A 1S ESC with V208 sofware installed running in blinky mode with 13.5 motor & 1S battery. It has been working great, however, last time out after hitting the boards and being hit from behind it stopped working. When switched on I get 3 beeps in quick sucession? If I turn it off and back on again it will work until I use reverse then I get the same again? I have tried a reset via the program box but it is still the same. Steering works fine amd reciever works in another car. Any iders?

No Help on here??? Also should have said sensor lead has been replaced.

Gforce products rock.

I've got the setup station and other bita. Quality is easily as good as hudy for less money. Plus the gforce g6p charger is a top piece of kit... That is all.

I agree with the setup station being really good. Really good quality machining and no slop.

However, I don't think the G6P isn't as good as we're led to believe. I've had 2 replacement units due to the AC internals failing. Each time, the 12v still worked from my battery but it no longer turned on from the wall. I never took each unit to the limit, and was simply charging a few packs pre-race while powering my tyre warmers.

After looking into things a little further, it turns out that the AC parts of the charger is it's achilles heel. I was told it's only a matter of time until they fail. Also, when listening to peoples recommendations about the charger, they told me it was a top spec charger that would reduce charge times, and accurately balance etc. In actual fact, the max power is around 130W. I changed to an icharger 308 duo recently, which can charge at 1300W from 2 outputs. Charging the same pack at 1c from storage took 20mins longer on the Gforce. The icharger can also discharge at a much higher rate, as the Gforce has a limit of 50W or 1a due to it's AC unit on the discharge function, meaning packs can take 2hrs to storage charge.

The advantage of the Gforce is the AC power and the numerous outputs on the rear of the unit. But as it's weak point of the unit, I'll be using a 12v supply and the icharger. Although half the price of the Muchmore AC charger, it's still a pricey unit. For the money I would have expected a more powerful charger, better suited to fast charging that can deal with the rigours and loads it's rated at.

Just my views on the G6P. I am however, hugely impressed with the Gforce motors.
