Default 10.5 Setups

Looks like the old thread has gone the way of the dodo, so I'll kick off a new one. Last time, the general consensus was it was the ESC that was a major contributor, on that basis, does anyone have any good first hand experience on what to run? I use a GTB and Roche motor in an Xray T2.

Where is best place to find these? I checked RC mart, they have version 1.0.
How about Tekin or LRP? The SXX or SPX look ok?

Alot of people will tell you to go for X brand or Y Brand.

You can really go wrong with any of the top of the line speedies on the market.

In no particular order:

LRP TC Spec, SXX, SPX
Tekin RS or RS Pro
Speed Passion GT 2.0
GM
Orion or KO

As for the Keyence, i haven't really seen much of it so cant really say much on it.

Take note that the LRP SSX does not have the spec motor profiles that the SPX has.

The SPX stock spec is noticibly quicker than the TC spec in 10.5. Reto from LRP posted that the TC spec's profiles 7 and 8 are about the same as the SPX stock specs 5 and 6, so that gives you an idea of what the stock specs 7 and 8 are like. The SXX has some similar profiles but not the same, so if you are running LRP in stock/superstock go the stock spec.

Can anyone confirm if the Losi 10.5 and Hacker are the same motor? Would be good value if they are, I saw the Losi on Model Flight's website for $79.95.

I agree Troy. I have noticed a good difference in performance in both 17.5 and 10.5 after going to a SP GT 2.0. Very happy with this speedy and it goes even better with a SP motor. Fits well and the carbon look is great in a '009.

Thats a good question. They apear the same apart from the colour but are the windings the same. If its not the same thicknes of copper wire then they won't perform the same. Hacker is one of the most highly regarded names in the brushless world and I can't see him wanting Losi to be able to produce the same quality motor as he does.

Having said that at AU$79 the losi has to one of the best deals going. They cost around US$75 in the states. Its not normal for stuff to be less in OZ than the rest of the world!

Are you using the LRP 10.5 with the SPX?
Have you run other brands with it?
I have just got myself a SXX to run with my losi 10.5 because ive heard that the SPX doesnt like running other brands too well.

I cooked 2 novaks with it if that's what u mean?

I'm using LRP now, but I had a 3rd novak running fine with it till the guy that lent it to me needed it back. Both motors went the same way, I tuned them by temp, then picked up a bit of pace with setup and they overheated. The lesson here is get your setup right first. That said, I think LRP motors are the most abuse tolerent
