I got it out of the box, wired it up correctly, calibrated it and gave it a bench test, all seemed to be well.

I then upgraded to 508_zero, calibrated it, and the motor runs in reverse. I tried reversing the channel on the radio but that does not help, that only makes the forward position the throttle. I then took a look at the software and there is a Motor Direction box specifies CCW (Counter-Clockwise is the wrong direction), however the box is disabled and you are not able to change the setting. What's the deal?

As the fustration was growing, I decided to try and upgrade to another software version, 211_Stock, I did this and calibrated it, and all seemed good again. This software version does not have a Motor Direction box but at least the motor turns in the right direction.

Also, this has probably been mentioned but what gives with needing a 2s lipo to configure the speedo? If you set the Lipo Cutoff to anything but disabled, then you can't even get the speedo to work with a 1S, it just sounds the alert that the voltage is too low. I don't run my packs that low, so I am not overlly worried about it, but it is an advertised feature of the speedo and it does not work.

So .. I need to run blinky, was planning on using it at IIC in Vegas which is a week away. What is the solution? Currently 508 is the only approved software for blinky. I have heard another 508_zero revision is in the works, but does it address the issue I am having, and not just the sensor sensitivity issue? And will it be out before IIC?

UPDATE

I just tried loading SP 508_no_timing software .. and it works. The motor goes in the right direction. I did not change anything else other than software. The Motor Direction box specifies CCW just like the HW software, but it goes in the right direction (oposite of the HW software), again you are unable to change this setting as it is disabled in both software packages. Of course you also have to disable the Lipo cutoff feature as it does not work with 1s lipo packs as the speedo thinks even a fully charged 1s pack is too low a voltage to do anything other than beep at you.

As I see it, there are 2 bugs in the 508_zero software, Motor Direction and Lipo Cutoff for 1S applications. I hope these will be addressed in the next version of 508 in addition to the sensitivity issue improvement.

Timeframe?
By the end of this week .

Popular or not that is the decision Hong kong online stores and ebay sellers make a massive loss but gain on other products thus this devalues our product and causes major damage to worldwide distributors and dealers, we will not stand for it anymore our products being dragged through the mud .

sometimes we have to make harsh decisions for the long term benefit of the company and brand .This is also about the protection of the consumer as there is not support for the buyer from these stores mentioned above.I get 100's of email a week with complaints about no support from online stores in hong kong and poor excuses why they cant help the consumer.

Dont stress there will be many avenue's were you will be able to purchase at great prices .

Will be ready tomorrow

2 changes have been made

1.more brakes like the 211 stock has

2.less sensitivity of the sensor port thus all motors ca be used without the issue of esc switching to sensorless mode.

Ron schurr from roar will be doing the testing hopefully by this weekend as it needs to be roar approved before it can be run in vegas.

regards Angelo
