Dear Cobra.

I'v got the new Sanwa M12 for my Tamiya 417X with Hobbywing Xerun V3 and I have one doubt.
Throttle channel can be configured in normal, ssr and shr response mode.
Which one must I use for the speedo channel?

King regards!

Suggest you to tell the racer at your club to look in his instructions
Thanks, I will forward the info to him. He had set the timing to zero but he said it didn't blink? So I will work with him and make sure he is in profile 2.

Used my V3 this past Saturday at the 8th scale racers of Toledo track. This thing is amazing had a reedy 4.5 on it and the esc never saw over 123. Amazing speed control I had to run it box stock because I didn't receive my program card yet. Love it and I havent even fine tuned it yet.

How's the BEC holding up against high-voltage servos (Savox!)? Anyone needing to add a glitch buster or additional external BEC? Thanks,

I'm running a 1250MG in my car with Dualsky 4.5 plus decent boost levels, no issues at all. Then again, also running a proper (ne Sanwa) radio system...

Is there any chance of giving roar a hurry up on updating the list, or receiving some email around this approval. We have state and national titles coming up an would like to get a new ESC before hand. I will be buying an Orion R10 if this isnt updated in the next week or two.

Just sent an email for confirmation. Has anyone compared this ESC to the Orion R10 Pro. I am sure they are manufactured by hobbywing as they look identical and the program card is (somewhat) compatible apparantly. I just wonder why the Orion R10 pro is 160amp, and the hobbywing V3 is 120 amp, and whether there is any difference

Is there anybody at hobbywing that can help me out? I received my V3 last week. After setting it and calibrating it with my radio on my pit table, I squeezed the trigger and heard a pop, and smelled the dreaded electrical burn smell. I emailed Hobbywing last week. They responded to me asking for the warranty code and pictures. I emailed them last Friday and have not heard back from them. Unfortunately, our point series starts this weekend. I'm without an ESC and I've already pre registered for the series. I'm more ticked off that they have yet to respond to me after promptly responding to their email request. Horrible customer service. Looks like I'm going back to Tekin. At least they take care of their customers quickly. Oh well. Should have listened to the local racers and stuck with a reputable company like Tekin or Orion. Can anyone else suggest a company with great customer service?

Angelo is correct but ROAR is ensuring that they have the most current version of the software.

Expect to see the list update before end of this week. Along with a few other Mfg's esc's.

There is no part number.

drop Angelo an email (CobraRacing on here), or given your in the states, CRC or Falken Sadieko (they are the US distributors). All of them usually will give good service, so whilst I appreciate your pain, but to rule it out and call them unreputable because of an answered email is a bit harsh! The V3 is a very good ESC, and I'm sure you'll like it once the issue is resolved.

Regards
Ed
