Default Futaba MC800C and 3PK

Hi,

Does anyone have a Futaba MC800C esc and a Futaba 3PK with R203HF and digital servo?

apparantly the receiver and digital servo need 6v, but this esc provides 5.8v.

I just want to see if this setup will work before I layout the dosh.

any help much appreciated

Pete

yeah, you're fine. it's a great setup. not many people run the mc800, but it's a punchy little sucka.

The only difference in this setup and the one I run, is I have the MC800C V2. I have absolutely no problems with it what-so-ever. I think the biggest thing I would worry about is making sure the servo is digital. An analog will do crazy things the first time you plug it into the HRS receiver.. Been there, done that..

Yeah I have the V2 aswell, (actually I have 2, one for each car)...

pricey but very good

at the moment I have a KO EX5, which was the first new bit of equipment I ever bought, 16 years young and still going strong, and have NEVER had any glitching or interference probs, same servo, same receiver. It is time to retire this relic, so yeah, just looking for a really good setup.

so the Futaba S9550??

Good deal then.. You shouldnt have any problems at all. From what I hear, the 9550 is a great servo. I personally use a KO 2343, but have thought about swapping to the 9550 just to free up a little room. I dont think that I wil notice .02 seconds....

as you know there are several versions, (Black, Super, Synth ...) and a variety of different modules available. I have been reading everything I can on whats available and am just getting muddled...

what would be your pick if you were buying a new setup...

Thanks

Pete

If I were to buy it new all over again, I would go with the 27mhz Super.
A) Its the black color instead of the gold (Mine now is the Megatech Black color)
B) Its synthesized on top of looking good, so you can put it on some of the odd channels and not have to worry about interferance. At least at a club race setting.
A couple of the local guys have the super, and I have been thinking about selling mine to upgrade to it anyway...

The MC800 is pretty much a rebadged LRP Quantum Competition. So it is as good as those.
