Default Sanwa Super Vortex Zero ESC

Anyone got any experience with the Super Vortex ESC?

I'm thinking of trying it with an Orion VST2 motor.

Thx.

Where did you get it? The first time I saw it was during this year's TITC

I ordered the RX -472, ESC, Servo combo from Banzai Hobbies last night, so I don't physically have it but it's on its way ;-)

A little birdie told me it's an OEM'd Speed Passion...

An OEM'd speedpassion that interfaces directly with the M12?

Had a try today - the SSL with m12 was really cool and the internal telemetry was also quite entertaining. The only problem I had was the fact that it can't handle a 4.5 turn 2S motor with boost - it thermal every run at about 3 minutes - internal temp of 130 degrees before shutting off.

Bottom line - it's cool piece if hardware if you are not planning to run modified with boost

I get an English instruction, I don't know if it helps. I haven't started to use mine yet. But I will test it later on. Pm your email, I send you.

Got mine installed in a TLR 22 2.0. The thing is sweet. Smooth. A huge jump up from my LRP Flow.

It would be sweet if they could get it ROAR approved. I'd love the telemetry with the M12.

Doesn't the telemetry on the M12 work with other esc's? Or do you get more info with the sanwa esc?

I guess this means it's Roar Approved but I couldn't find it on the List.
