Only FalconSekido is on the official Hobbywing site as a distributor ... perhaps an update is in order.

ROAR currently has V1.1_120511_beta as the approved version of the V3 software which is not the current version .. are there plans to get the current version approved ... (IIC is the first week of October)
I'm very happy to hear that! Over a year ago I tried to get one of your clients to work on this to no avail.

I wanted to know if i could only do via PC, I have no way of being able to connect to the computer and test now. Thanks for the replies. (The ESC is always 150A)
There is no option to turn on or off the sensor. That happens automatically inside the esc.

Are there any plans to improve the firmware for V2.1 xeruns?

...I'm using V1.08 which is part of the latest V3.1_120808

...the 'no-reverse-when-using-initial-brake=drag-brake-in-fwd/brk/rev-mode' glitch is still there!

What is the most current Xerun V3 firmware?

I Installed the lastest USB link (version 808) but I don't see any option to upgrade from the current firmware (511 beta)

I downloaded the latest software off the site today and it only let me go to 120551_beta which happens to be the ROAR legal version. The file I downloaded said 120808, but that wasn't available to install.

That is the current version of software for the program box, which contains the latest firmware for the V3.

The latest firmare for the V3 available to us mere mortals is 511 beta.
I believe there is another beta firmware but this was only made available to the works Hobbywing drivers

Maybe I didn't explain it the right way, or you're misreading me, but I didn't talk about, in any way, how it should be distribute, but how the "North America" and "USA (only)" use is wrong if the distribution is like Angelo said (and it's anybody's job to talk about any mistake that could have been made).

I've never said "CRC should be the one doing A distribution, FalconSekido B distribution and SchuurSpeed C distribution" like you're saying in your post (because it's not my job to do so).

It's a big, big difference of point of view.

Maybe I should have said it like this:

I hope everybody can understand the meaning of my post now

Hi guys, I just got a xerun 120a v2.1. running a Reedy Sonic 9.5 Modified motor. Which ESC firmware version should I use? v3.0_110930_MOD? or v3.0_110930STOCK? What are the differences?

I am using firmware version v1.08_120504 in the programming box. First time using a programmable ESC, any help would be greatly appreciated.

511_beta feels pretty good with 13.5. I didn't like this ESC's drag brake in the past, but we've since changed our racing surface and drag brake is no longer a good choice.

The punch compared to other brands is pretty stunning. The LRP and Orca feel surprisingly flat compared to the V3.

Now your coming to your senses. Pretty nice speedo huh. Still call dibs when you sell it next week.
