Looks like they have updated their design compared to other fakes.

I also sent an email to the ebay seller asking him straight up if it is fake, so we will see how he responds.

As for research I searched the seller's name and didn't get a result. I also went through all past HobbyWing product units sold to find any negative "fake" feedback and nothing.

Ebay is becoming bigger and bigger with sellers out of hong kong and china one believe it or not is out of the usa with counterfeit products of hobbywing as i have received more emails from customers who have purchased and have been burnt.

Ive said it many times before buying off ebay sellers you are at risk of not receiving a genuine product.

There are also two companies with cosmetic features identical to hobbywing which have also cracked the 508 software to be used on their esc's and the crazy thing is they call it 508 zero timing lol.

so just be aware not all stores on ebay advertising hobbywing products are the genuine deal.Also be aware of look alikes that are using the software as they are fake .

xerun series oems are only made for the following

orion,sp gt series,Hpi,yokomo .

please if you come across any other branded esc that is running hobbywing 508 software or even turbo software please let us know by email

teamcobraracing@gmail.com
ae@hobbywing.com

or proamps@gmail.com

when you purchase hobbywing please go to our website and input your anti counterfeit code supplied with your unit if it doesnt register then you have just purchased a non genuine product .

You can also check the package all our products come in a coloured package with a hobbywing anti counterfeit hologram label not in the plain white boxes i have seen in the past .Also capacitors for the xerun are silver and the ezrun are black and white stripping not green and gold .
Also all our sensor cables are only supplied with motors not esc's and are black and not red with a white connector
the US copy you are referring to, is made in china and shipped to the US and distributed.

It has already been posted by Angelo that these are NOTHING to do with Hobbywing.

So beware if you buy one.

nah, was not going to. when a 300 dollar esc sells for $59, I always believe it is too good to be true.

you would be suprised what they do trust me .The knock offs are designed by a person in the usa and instructs the factory in china to manufacture them .There are many of these $59 esc's floating around the usa
