That would have decreased the timing.

I canīt read actual motor temp and actual battery voltage. It shows 0.
Iīm pressing the button on Esc after the run and then turn off the esc, after that connect it to pc.
How can I read this data??

Other question my max voltage reading is 9.91v... How ??

Thank you

if the esc shows a temp of "0" the motor has no ntc build in. Only motors with ntc show their temp.

About the max voltage of 9,9v, I believe I read something about the max voltage while breaking will increase this.

I believe you can cut the wires from the switch and solder them toghether. This way the esc should be always on and you can turn it off wirh the set button if programmed with pc

Hi all, I'm using a GM90 with 7.2 firmware, with a 10.5 Novak Ballastic. Track is the very big Cotswolds, UK. Does anyone have a good starting point for mode and FDR?

Now I don't know this for sure, but i'm happy to take a guess.

Both of those are "real time/current" readings - however, when you are hooked up to your laptop, the ESC isn't powered. So, I suspect that those are parameters/readings that are more suited to the "telemetry box" that I believe is on it's way. I don't think it's possible to read those with the laptop.

Hi Guys

Just got home from my first test today with the New GM120 and i have to say its got some pace.
We played around with a few settings but i would like to know what the options under the "power curve" heading do?
Ie today i went from STD Mode 9

"Medium additional Timing 2 9.5-21.5"
to
"high additional Timing 1 9.5-21.5"

I found that it made the car feel more sluggish under medium throttle and low rev's.

Thanks in advance
Graham Kenny

is that all you changed, just the powercurve setting?

according to the manual
Quote:
The Powercurves are only in function if Timing with Sensors is set to +30°.

Hi I have read through all the posts since the release of the 2010 120 speed controller. I have flashed the firmware however I am unsure how to do a factory reset. Below is the accelleration tab,is this what should show for mode 9 please?

i330.photobucket.com/albums/l426/hedge1970/Mode9_GII.jpg

Also yesterday running firmware 10.x Mode 8 (standard) I melted a Speedpassion 10.5 R running an FDR of 5.77 on a small outdoor track which last year I run

Motor: Novak SS 10.5
ESC: LRP Sphere TC 2007
FDR: 4.74

It seems to me the FDRs while slightly higher are not extreme so I dont know why I would have melted the motor?

Thanks for any help you can provide.

Cheers

Paul

For me it seems that std mod 9 is too much for a 10.5. You could try a lower powercurve maybe with a higher fdr. The most important thing is to check temps regulary while driving if the motor hasnīt a ntc build in. You should also set your rpm limit to 50.000 and activate timing with sensors +30 because in the manual it is said that the powercurves work only if its activated
