Also I ran the new software today, I really like the power delivery, super punchy, super top end, seems to lack a little at about mid-range, but I think that might be to much timing to quickly.

I have a question regarding the Boost timing vs Turbo.

if then the max boost you can have is 30 degrees, because if you set to 38, the extra 8 degrees will be turbo.

firstly, do these 8 degrees of turbo adhere to the parameters that control normal turbo? eg, Full throttle delay and the new degress / 0.1s?

also then, what would you expect if you ran the following 3 configurations, because in theory they are the same?

1: Boost timing: 30, Turbo 8
2: Boost timing: 38, Turbo 0
3: Boost timing: 34, Turbo 4

And how the Turbo compensates for the boost if its set below 30:

2: Boost timing: 20, Turbo 18
2: Boost timing: 20, Turbo 10

Thanks
Been thinking about this all the day......

Really dont get it, if its like the guy above descibebs...
What is the use off timing to 38, since everything above 30 is sent to turbo.

I would say just use 30 and a bit off regular turbo,
the 31 to 38 is totally useless then...?

Hmmm....

Thats right. From what I have learned/read is it limits the amount of current to the motor.

So the reason i dropped it, was i knew I was getting some wheel spin out of the corners, so there was to much power. Using the Lvl6 (I was at 8), i didnt get the wheel spin, and imho is i didnt take the edge off the battery as quick. Not only was the car quicker at the end of the race, my lap times dropped another .2 second.

You need to heat the connectors first and melt the solder in the connector the heat the wire and allow the solder to flow on the wire strands then heat the connectors on its side and feed the wire direct in the connector hole .Hold it for 3 seconds and then let go .dont try and put solder and heat and the connector with the wiore at the same time it will not work and look poor.
Yes - that's how it's done. What looks like bad soldering is the cap wires soldered on top of the pos & neg wires.



But still no answer about the v3.0_508_No timing software. I suppose it's not in this package ...?

To all at Hobbywing, thank you for listening to the customers, this new firmware is excellent news!

Upto 30deg Boost and 16deg Turbo (46deg total) is a huge increase in range from the previous 29deg total maximum. This gives us a lot more setup options, and will be especially useful for those running higher winds like 17.5T.

This really makes HW the best ESC available now. It's the most reliable, best supported (thanks to Cobra) and should now be the fastest too. And still 1/3rd the price the competition! Amazing stuff.

Hi guys

Just some info on the 508 it will stay on as 4 options for brakes as if we change it then the manual has to change but more importantly you cant use the led programmer as the settings need to be changed on that as well from 4 options to 8 which means your going to have to upgrade to the 2 in 1 programmer lcd .It can be down but would you guys upgrade to the lcd programmer as the led will not work .

Just had a look at the disc that came with the esc and it only has v1.06...100512 as an older version on it.
Do you have a link to the v1.02 from anywhere, as the Hobbywing site only has the v1.06 on there as well.
Thanks again for any help.

ANyway, let the software define the esc How inferior would the current V2.1 be compared to 'that'?

I didn't ask any specifics on the new product so please satisfy our curiosity

I already have the 2 in 1 programmer (updated to V1.07 already too), so this would be fine with me.

I would say according to the readme, that the boost will kick in at the set rpm and then the turbo will come in after x amount of seconds which you set it at. Which means, you can have turbo for acceleration if you don't reach full throttle during the technical parts of the track which you race on, then have the turbo kick in during the straight in which kicks in after the x amount of seconds you have set in the programming card.

Hope that sort of makes sense.
