You have to buy Lrp Usb bridge V2 and install the tools on Lrp website.

What was wrong is when plugged in the USB the windows automatically installed wrong driver in the system. Goto control panel and check your hardware driver, check on the USB bridge and reponit the driver directory to program files/LRP Firmware Update Tool 2.0/ and you should get your driver install correctly.

Before you do that, install the Update tool software first


Thanks formosa008. I'll give it a try.

Has anyone had any problem with the LRP flow V1.4 runinning boosted and using LRP X12 motor?

Was running a LRP X12 10.5 on my Hobbywing ESC with no problems, then put it on my LRP flow. It ran ok but then 3 minutes in it began to stutter, then no power then all of a sudden lots of power.

Changed sensor cable and still didnt cure it. Also it is not the ESC as i put a Reedy Sonic 10.5 on it and its fine.

Any ideas?

Has anyone tried LRP Flow with Non-LRP brand motor? My flow with Dualsky motor can't get top end out...it stucks at around 15000rpm and can't get any higher.....I have tried 13.5 boost, 6.5, 5.5 none of them can get it to work. It feels like the motor is running with broken sensor cable (but my cable is working).

Hello

If any body having a problem with window 7, a friend got his working by dragging the v5 firmware file on to the desktop, don't open it in any other way.

Hope that helps.

I mainly run stock blinky classes and wanted to get a Flow to replace my Tekin. I notice 2 versions of the flow and found a great deal on the lesser one. What is the diffrence between the 2 versions and will I notice it in my 17.5 TC?

How do these ESC 's compare to a current Tekin.

What I read is that one is for 9.5 turn motors (Competition) or higher and the other one (Works) is for 3.5 turn motors or higher.

crappy marketing and terminology I think.

Only used it in Boost 0 mode, but it has worked with Murfdogg, Trinity, and Reedy motors correctly. (This is after recieving a new one, when the first one was bad right out of the box). So far I like its performance characteristics.
