Adachi ran it at TITC in feb, and looked good, its a very neat unit.

Though i then saw his car at a euro race only a few weeks later with a Nosram back in the car, so dont know if there are problems, or if he can only run it with the KO reps present.

Some new info:
Quote:



Ko-Propo has released some official information about their first brushless electric speed controller. The VFS-1 BMC was already spotted at the Toy Fair in Germany, but no information about the specifications was given by Ko-Propo.
Ko-Propo Japan has says that the new ESC will have an max. rated current of 3120A and a continuous rated current of 780A. The size of the VFS-1 BMC will be 33.4 37.0 16.8 (mm) and it will weigh 30.8g (without the wires and the fan). It will be able to run on Ni-cd, NI-MH and LI-PO batteries. The VFS-1 BMC will have a motor limit of 4.5T. Ko-Propo will release a 'Words Specification Kit' for this ESC. The kit will contain a fan and a heat sink which will reduce the heat and will give an motor limit of 2.5T.
The VFS-1 BMC (No.40050) will come out this summer and will cost around 200 euros (31500 Yen). The 'Words Specification Kit' (No.45521) will cost around 15 euros (2100 Yen).

They look good. The only thing that confuses me is the AMP ratings. There in know way the copper traces and wires can handle max. rated current of 3120A and a continuous rated current of 780A. They can't go by what the max. rating of a MOSFET is.

The 80's called, they want their style back!

I'm sorry, but those just dont look like electronics that are coming out in 2008.
Am I wrong about this?

I like how they look. I'm pretty sure they'll do something with the heat sink to mach the gold accents.

I think Ko-Propo is going retro, and I like it . I always preferred the looks of the KO Mars over the Helios.
Greetings Victor

PS: @redbones: I've got the SpeedPassion GT and it's great!

I heard these things were going to be tiny. 33x34mm is pretty small, but I was expecting smaller. Where does the sensor harness plug in? With the fan and heatsink(Worlds Kit), $334.00.

Not sensored???? Who is going to buy a $334 sensorless speedo? What kind of motor would you even run with it, Castle? So you're saying Hara was competing with sensorless motors?
