Default MALFUNCTIONING

As occured with my previus VX ESC, i am having a strange issue with a new VXX. After minor o more pronounced vibrations, caused by collisions or bumps on track suface, the throttle does not respond. All i need to do is move the sensor cable to operate the ESC again. Consider that i already tried different sensor cables & ribind the ESC with radio. Any ideas of what might be the cause of this issue ? Thanks

What motor are you using? I ask because I have always had this same issue with Novak motors and other brand sensors. Switched to a Novak wire and stopped having the issue.

Have you tried different brand sensor wires? Novak are pretty stiff but the plug is excellent. I usually use TQ on everything, but for some reason with Novak motors they do not work. I even ended up using a zip tie around the endbell of my novak motor to hold it in.

ropezz, does the throttle not respond while you're out on the track or when you turn on the ESC? Could it be the signal cable to the ESC?

Frottle stops responding on track and occasionally when i turn on the ESC at the pits.

Really odd behaviour of ESC, starting to think Orca have a delicate spot, due to the fact this is my second ESC with similar issue.

Fortunate i am getting feedbacks on this forum, no reply on Facebook from Myberg and Orca. Pitty, if this is ORCA' s after sales support, i will switch to another brand.

Hey ropezz, have a look on the previous page and you will see I had to a similar problem. My VXX ended up dead. If it's within the 60 day warranty period, send it back. I'm still trying to get the address though, so I've had a similar experience.

Send a message via AIM to EAMotorsports
Default Warranty/Repairs

Anyone that has a VX or VXX that needs repairs please email aboutrcracing@gmail.com Anthony is the person that will reply and he is in charge of the warranty and repairs of all ORCA products sold through AUTHORIZED dealers in the US. If you bought it outside the US they can not do any repairs on them. All serial numbers are tracked as they come in so they can tell where it came from originally.

If its within the 60 day warranty you will have to provide a copy of the receipt from where you bought it for them to warranty it for you.

Hopefully this will help the few guys having issues.

Problem is that AME in Germany, isn't replying to my mails asking for support.
Apparently i am not the only one who as had similar issues.
Changing sensor cables did not solve problem with my old ESC, ill try again with this new one. Other thing i noticed is that when ESC was bran new, the beep sound emitted when changin parameters was much louder, now it's feebel.
Here in Italy ORCA isn't popular, actually im the only one still using there ESC.
Hope my english isn't too bad

I'm using the vritra vxx with a BLS451 and 4PL. When I bring the steering servo back to neutral, the throttle glitches on me. It only does it when returning to neutral. I've been told that my BEC is shot. Any suggestions?
