My gear ratio is fine, and it's driven beautifully in the past.

Thanks
make sure you throttle trim is set to defalt(zero or 100) when you did the calibration,and also its still set the same.

Having to send this POS off again. This time because it keeps saying the rotor is locking in position. Waste of time this speedo.

I wonder if it is a wide spread problem?? I just picked up a SSX on craigslist as a backup until I get mine back from Team Associated (same problem as you)

Alright, just for clarification.

If I have say, 30 deg motor timing, and a total of 60deg additional speedy timing (Combination of Boost and Turbo), is this an incorrect way to run the motor, and could contribute to my stuttering problems?

Would having the timing on the can at 30deg, and total speedy timing at 30deg be better?

Please explain this to me. Is is a total of 60deg timing allowed all together? Or on the speedo only.

Thanks!

I think, you should start with 0 degree motor timing, 30 degree boost timing and 0 degree turbo timing. Than, you can increase your motor timing in 10 degree steps.

Regards,

Chris

Me and another racer were just talking about this...... I have a Futaba 4pl and the throttle trim goes up to 120. I was under the impression from racing in VTA that you set the set the speed control with the trim at 100 and after you do that you should turn the trim up to get more speed.

Fast forward to tonight, I was told to turn the trim up to the Futaba 120 on both the brake and the throttle and then calibrate. Then tune out the brakes from there so you are not locking up the wheels.

Okay guys what's the verdict on this? Just to let you all know I'm racing in 17.5 Reddy Mach 2 with the out the box profile Flow works. (windows 8)

there is a limit as to how many degrees you can add to a motor, more than that and it will want to start turnign backwards ! dial your timing back to no more than a total of about 60 deg and run it again

as to setting your esc up at 100 epa and then moving the epa is not going to give you more than full throttle !!!! 100% is 100% the only thing you are making sure of by doing this is that if you have a floating endpoint on the esc, the esc will still be seeing 100% and still be boosting !

He's putting it at 120% and then calibrating, which should give u finer adjustments since you're adjusting 100% with 120 points, but I doubt this will be necessary.

Currently my setup consists of 10deg boost timing, and 30deg motor timing.

Will be running it tomorrow to see how it goes. I have reinstalled the stock firmware, re-calibrated the speedcrontroller and replaced the reciever.

Hi Bill !

I have used the Thunder Power 17.5 / LRP Flow combo since November. And it has worked really great..

My settings at the last race was:

Auto Brake #1

Feel/Initial Drive #1

Torque Timing #0

Boost #5

Boost Angle #7

Turbo Timing #3

FDR 6.41 ( Xray T4 )

40 degree timing on motor

40mm fan in front of motor blowing backwards

This give a motor temp of about 70 degree C

Racing indoor on carpet.

We run 17.5 blinky. Like the 5.0 software and 3.3 for boosted.

Run a reedy motor no issues.

Thankyou, very much. I dont think I am able to run a fan behind the motor though. Ill have to play with settings ect until heat isnt the issue.

Thanks again
Bill
