Default ORCA Team - VRITRA VX COMPETITON ESC

Could not find anything about it here, so decided to start this thread.
Bought it and just assembled it in the car.
Awesome quality on the material.

Would like if there is anybody using it already to share here some set up advices, I was using a Xtreme stock and would like to hear from the more experienced guys how to set it up.

Running 10.5T motor.

I think once the North American distributor is fully setup and going that you'll see more people post stuff here. You wont get much US feedback until then as I dont know of anyone here that runs them other than Andrew Hardman from Canada. Keith Yu has just gotten their shipment someone said and you will probably start to see more chatter about them.

The ORCA looks the exact same as the HobbyWing is it?

Hi guys, I didn't had the time to test it, too cold here.
I am planning to test with a fried who is more experienced on esc setups, I am going to use the setup posted here as a beginning and them will start to improve from there if needed.

I also feel the lack of people posting on this thread, it was meant to be a way of changing info.

By sunday I will have more info to share.

By the way, I will be using the X20 10.5T motor instead of the 10.5T SP MMM.

Yeah all we are saying is the people in United States don't have regular access to ORCA like the others so we are in the dark for the most part.

Sounds like somone is setting up to be a distributor in America but until then......

They are available at MuchHobby out of Toronto.

Has a nice smooth power band, works well in blinky class racing.

It's not yet ROAR legal for blinky though. http://www.roarracing.com/?page_id=737

muchhobby.com has the titanium colored ones in stock right now. No blue or orange at the moment.

Very true, although it has been allowed in several non-ROAR races in blinky classes. (Or at least the older one was.)

Remember a bit the LRP SXX.
About quality construction, I would say that it is equivalent to the top speedos.
Performance as I said just on the weekend, but I really enjoyed until now.
I hope that more stores on the internet start to sell it, I bought with their German guy, but I think in the future they will give more options to the market.
