Darkside: it is a really good speed control, i don't use the cap and i dont have any problem. about those wires, they are made from pure silver or have more silver content than other wires. they are expensive, i think they are 9bucks for 2 one foot in a package. they conduct electricity better.. that is if i can tell a different
well, copper is the best electricity conductor instead !!

what's wrong telling other's the truth? majority of the drivers here have glitching problem with this ESC.

Hello ME- what cars are you going to bring back to HK or are you going to buy a new one like last time?

I think only problem with the Keyence is when you have to change the wires. The solder tabs are directly connected to one side of the FETs with quite a large heat sink channel. If you are not quick enough you will destroy the FETs. Its happened to a friend once and when I took the case apart the problem was obvious! This is a lot worse than the GM V12 ESC. My recommendation is to get one joint done in less than 5 sec then wait til it cools down before going to the next joint!

Having said that, Keyence service is excellent. 2-3 weeks, repair cost less than 20% of new ESC and throw in a new case.

GM service 3-9 months, 50-60% of new ESC cost and they don't even give you a new case (unless you burn the old one! ).

Whats wrong with the Xray?!!!!

You'd better watch out about the transmitter and flying. They are getting pretty 'hot' on the security issue.

My boss came back from the States directly after the 11 Sept incident. He has an Apple IBook. Security asked him to switch it on and then asked him what is was? When he said it was a computer they asked him; so where is 'Windows" then!!!!!!!!(this is a TRUE story!!!)........... I hate to think how you will explain your EX-1....

Nows here's a good question. I noticed that you can buy silver loaded solder and copper loaded solder. Would the copper one be better for ESCs?
