I just got feedback from Roar. The Orca TX series has not been submitted for approval.

Why advertise it as Roar spec if you don't submit it for approval? I mailed Orca 6 times in the past 4 weeks without success. What a waste of money, I will never support Orca again.

I have never had such poor service from anyone.... Shocking!

I was told the motor was submitted to ROAR for approval but failed on the rotor part of it because the shoulder that sticks out to measure the shaft on a spec rotor was not long enough. At least this is the Email I saw from ORCA about the motor. The new design is already in production to meet the spec for the rotor.

I believe that the mk II will not work - you will need a newer program box.

I picked up an orca esc today and am looking forward to trying it out tomorrow. Does any have a good starting setup for mod sedan using a 4.5? Low-medium bite 90x40 indoor carpet.

Hi,

Here are Andrew's settings for Mod (5.5 ORCA TX Motor) from the Snowbirds which was approximately the same size of carpet.

1,25%
2,19%
3,normal
4,0.05
5,27*
6,-2
7,4%
8,4%
9,4k
10,6
11,8K

You might want to try these as a starting point.

Regards,
Ian (Andrew's Dad)

Thank you! I assume like the Lrp your total brake force is set with EPA on your transmitter?

When your in blinky it blinks for sure. I will have to look at mine to see what it does when you pull throttle/brake etc. I believe its on solid at neutral, goes off on power and then comes back on at full throttle. Same thing with brakes. But usually I have the body on and dont pay attention! LOL

Mine stay solid red in modified mode regardless of throttle or brake. I was worried I overheated it at first, but it seems like it's normal.
