I have no HRS-receiver. I donīt believe that it only works with HRS-receivers.

I like the RB-50, but I'd buy the combo. Has any tried the Linear motors? I haven't read about anything on these motors. Also, can other manufacture motors be used with this speed control?

Hey Tia
Did you try changing to an unused model on the transmitter?
I recall helping a Friend setup a tekin RS with the same problem as you described, only after he selected a different model on the transmitter did the set up "read" full throttle & full brake. I think it has to do with the throttle ATV.
Try it and LMK.
Good luck.

The Linear motors are SP brushless motors. A good motor

Hello big_boss,

Yes i tried it also on a unused model. Team Wave support have tested the receiver and says that the receiver signal voltage does not follow standard (3V above) such that RB30 canīt recognize it. Strange, but al my other ESC work good with that receiver. I tested with several receivers (futaba) and only a 3PK + R203HF(HRS) work good (radio setup) with RB30.

Greets, evolution1

Hi everyone,

I'm going to be racing for Team Wave and running the RB-50 series controller starting first thing next week. Once I receive my controller, I'll be doing a complete installation and set-up photo shoot and be available to help with any question you may have about their new system!

Chris

that is very strange, but at least you now know what was wrong...

Default RB-50

Hello everyone,

As a driver for TEAM WAVE, I thought it would be good to bring everyone, skeptical and non, up to speed on this new ESC offered by WAVE. I know some of you may have the RB-30 units by now, some with great success, I opted to hold out until the RB-50 was released and patience paid off, this thing is amazing!

It ships in a neat box, well padded/protected for the long trip it will have from Hong Kong. The unit ships with directions/instruction manual, 3 feet of black 12gauge "wet-noodle" wire which is a great addition! Power capicator that is pre-wired and ready for install, fan, power switch and very handy color-coding shrink tubing to help identify your wiring among all the black. sticker sheet.







The ESC itself is a very neat little package. For us off-roaders, the front mount rx wires and on-off switch are a welcome sight! With BL esc's being rather bulky, wires protruding out the side only proves to take-up space in our limited chassis, so coming out the font is a great feature! The on-off switch also has a small plug-in port that appears to be the connector port for the hand-held adjustment unit wave is developing. The Heat sink appears small, but after some inspection, it actually goes deep into the plastic casing so there is substantial cooling.

Wave really did their homework on their cooling design. The heat-sink has a hole in the top which goes directly from the fan blades into the circuit board for a more direct cooling path, very smart! There is some very porous/light foam inside the hole protecting the board from dust/debris.

Another thing I like is the attention to detail regarding the build of this ESC. The heat sink fins have grooves milled into them that allow the fan hold-down screws to grab onto while threading them into the heat sink. On top of that, Wave has thread-locked the fan screws into the heat sink! So there's no chance of them rattling out during a race.

The whole back of the ESC looks like a bank of ITB's (Individual throttle bodies), which only adds to the sheer bling of this ESC. I couldn't get over how cool they looked, no circuit board to burn/melt, just some bullet connectors to solder into. Soldering couldn't have been easier because of this design!







Wiring was simple. Because of the cavernous holes, the wire easily fit deeply inside. The back side of each tube had an "access hole" if you will that allowed the iron to enter into the solder tab and heat the wire from the bottom...this proved to be extremely convenient, quick, pain free and above all, CLEAN! The size of the solder tabs also allow some of the silicone wrap to enter also, thus sheathing any bare wire strands from moving around while in use...thus preventing potential shorting.






Installation was a breeze thanks to the small size. Since I'm running my "50" in a 2W buggy, I had to re-locate the fan, but no worries, the extra small size of this ESC allowed ample room to put the fan right in front of the ESC allowing for cool air to blow through the fins. And thanks to the light foam in the cooling-vent, no debris will enter the board while the fan is off.






So here's a basic break-down of the RB-50, I'll be racing it for the first time tomorrow and will be back with more information on the feel, power band, setup etc.

Stay Tuned!!!

Chris

Oh and by the way, I forgot to post this earlier, here's a size comparison of the RB-50 to a Sphere TC

See above post for size of RB-50 in the same car.

I know one is being developed. I chat with Max everyday and asked him through my e-mail last night in regards to your question. He will get back to me and or post here on Tech soon.

Just a tip but you would be better off with that fan facing the back of the speedy to soak up heat fromt the solder tubes as well as the heatsink. This also has the advantage of forcing air through the middle of the speedy to improving cooling on the lower fet board.

That's a good idea, i'll try it sometime!

I had my first test runs this evening and the only word that came to mind was "WOW!" I couldn't even scratch the surface with all the adjustments possible, but I did get a great impression of what I have to work with!

Let me just say this...I ran a 17.5 in my B4 and ran in the modified 2W class tonight...without complaint. Most guys run the 8.5 at my track and no one pulled me down the straight, and I could clear everything without going outside the racing line.

The combination of the "Timing" "Turbo" and "Drive Profile" made for quite the power output and driving experience. Every time I made a change, be it several steps or only a very minor/fine adjustment, it was noticeable and that made the experience that much better.

It's late and I'm tired, but I'll give a more detailed run-down of the settings tomorrow!
