Is the v3 going to come with everything to program it wireless eg iPhone or will you need to purchase it seperately? Cause at $195 I would buy it, but not if I needed to spend another $30 to buy a wireless programming module.

BY the way the hobby industry in the uk see $195 then charge us 195 so it will be a huge increase.
All i ask is this dont judge the unit until you physically see it as well as the amazing software that i cannot reveal at the moment.

You guys talk about orion and sp who you think designs and manfactures it?

Angelo, I have both e-mailed you and posted on here without reply on the question of Uk representation for HW. Let me not be polite...

RacersinExile have taken people's money on the promise that they would get a 'reserved' v3 speedo. Like many others, I have placed an order and paid for a v3. Now, even you are saying that you have not heard from Stuart for months. It doesn't seem likely that any of us will get our speed control.

GiantCod on the other hand are an excellent dealer with great service and prompt shipment. HW have decided they cannot stock the v2.1 or v3 speedos because...? I don't know, but you have taken the agency away from a good supply source, and a company who have a great reputation.

Perhaps that is clear enough for you to understand that the bad guy is Stuart, that he has taken money and apparently disappeared, and we are wondering not just how we get our money back, but where we will buy a v3 in the UK. Personally, I cannot expect you or HW will compensate me for an order you had nothing to do with. However, if you are serious about help, then either find Stuart and get us an assurance he will supply us with speedos we have paid for, or find the UK an agent who will stock product and supply us. Is that clear enough?

Looking forward to your reply, but on past form, more in hope than expectation.

Oh dear, was looking forward to the V3, HW has a massive presence in the UK racing scene, due to a brilliant product at a price that has been affordable for everyone.
As stated a minimum USD195 will mean 195 UK price. more than double the extreme stock price.
New Speed Passion 70! they are looking to take the drivers away from HW

No doubt it will be a brilliant ESC - but you may well start losing the support you have gained.

Also sounds like a bit of price fixing which is a no no in the UK if proved

Default hw xerun 120a 1s advise

hello Hobbywing. i just brought a xerun 120a 1s esc speed control that i have set up in a 1/12th scale pan car. i am new to the electric side of radio control so i really have no clue to what iam doing with esc i also have the 2 in 1 program box. iam running a revtech 17.5 motor and a revtech 6200 mah 70c 1s lipo battery. i went in with the program box and down loaded some firmware to it not sure of what was the right version i want to set every thing back to factory setting and start over what do i need to do to do that to the 2 in1 box and the esc. plus i need help to understand programing and how do you know what the profile of each version. if you search the different post i have been asking for help with this esc. everyone where i will be racing uses either tekin or lrp so its hard to get the help, so maybe if i reach out to Hw i can get better feedback before i just decide to go with one of the other esc.


thanks in advance for all the help

Its a shame this thread seems to be turning into a bashing thread for the new V3 unit before it has even been launch.

I am a dedicated user here in the UK with over 8 units in different types cars. I hope the V3 unit will be released very soon so people have something else to talk about other than the wait or cost as it appears to be generating allot of negative press for all of there products.

Nevermind I just loaded "stock" software instead of "MOD" and it opened everything up. Silly me thinking "mod" would mean everything could be modified! lol

I don't think anyone is bashing the V3. Just at that price point it must be an amazing speedo. It is the most expensive ESC on the market, I can't wait to see all the extra features it must have.

Actually it is not. The Advanced Electronics black diamond is as it comes in at nearly $400 street price and only have 5 pre set profiles including a blinky one. No where near as adjustable. The tekin rs pro is $210 new street price. Im sure there are many more. Hobbywing has great products, just wait and see how this one turns out, not bad at all im sure. I know ill be ordering one after i have seen it in action a couple of times. The price is still yet very competitive. I do like how the power switch is directly on the speedo, no more turning off in hard crashes and side swipes
