Bingo! Looks like a blown sensor circuit. Runs fine without the hall sensor attached. Wish I'd known the Orca would run sensorless, could have checked that first and saved myself several hours LOL. Thanks Big Gord for the help. Hans, will ship it out to y'all tomorrow or Monday. Thanks.

This is the setup we ran at the IIC( High bite carpet)

Punch 8

D.B. 14%
initial B. Off
B.F. 700
And we used the ORCA RX2 17.5 motor with option rotor, gear at 3.88
Motor timing 4.5bars

I think you can start with this setup!

How does the gearing compare with other well known brands such as Tekin...typically higher or lower FDR?

Any experience would be greatly appreciated.

Thx!!

Hi,

From what I know the FDR is from 3.6~4.1!

Wondering if one of you Orca guys can check on my speedo for me. Sent it back for diagnosis/repair, you received it October 17. I know Hans was out of the country at the time, he was going to try to send someone by to pick it up. Emailed a few days ago to check status, haven't heard back. Vritra Mk II TC Spec speedo.

Markmarshall, I can PM you the address they had me send mine to. However, I'll tell you that I've been trying to contact them for 2 weeks with no response myself. Orca received it October 17, I'm just trying to get a status and see if it's repairable, or if I need to go ahead and just purchase a new speedo, or what. The first few emails I sent to Orca (re: where to ship and to confirm it got there) were answered fairly quickly. After that, nothing. Not sure what the deal is, but if you want the shipping address I'll send it.

Quick note, did hear back from Orca today, so they are answering emails. They gave me a couple of reasonable options. Will let you know how it turns out, but looking forward to running an Orca speedo soon. Markmarshall, the return address Hans had me ship to is on the previous page.

Default new software

I installed the new software, and i immediately felt the brake changes. It really is a lot smoother now then it was. Now the smoothness of the brakes matches the smoothness of the throttle.

Good on ya Team Orca.
