I've tried a new booster, receiver, sensor wire and a known good motor with no avail? Any ideas or help would be greatly appreciated..

Also if I turn the switch for the speed control on first the lights flash correctly on the speed control. If I turn the booster on first it flashes with the error code I noted above, but either way it wont run!
If you get this issue grab a 2s and power the esc up with it. IF the issue goes away your rx booster or rx pack isn't supplying enough voltage.

Tekin fan here .... if and when the new hardware comes out, if you keep it to the same size/footprint, develop a program box to eliminate the need for a laptop, and keep to the performance standards tekin provides, you'll surely blow the competition away!

... Eagerly awaiting!

I don't run F1, but what size track are you racing at? (this might help someone else give you a starting point).

Also if you are using foams, obviously gearing will play into the setup too, as they wear down.

The cars are quite light so you might need to use less boost than other classes but again it really depends on track size and the length of the straight and so on....

As for delay. I would possibly try 0.3 as a starting point, ramp 2 and go from there but it is a guess. Watching motor temperatures is also a key point.

IT's possible but don't hold your breath. Replace the cap and power it up, if it works consider yourself lucky, you dodged a bullet.

I believe it. We occasionally get some national event winning drivers at our track and sometimes I even get to race against them. When I've stuck to the posted setups I've never felt like these guys had any power advantage on me. The dirty secret, sometimes they DETUNE the cars for less power at the smaller events when the traction is not up to par.

Now blinky class - don't get me started.

Default specs

my damn hobbywing just blew on me. you buy cheap you buy twice is so true. i am seriously considering a tekin RS pro, but whats puts me off all ESCs nowadays is the information on the website, they dont list everything i want to know. like on the tekin website, there is only 1 page showing the RS and RSpro together, with basic specs. i wished they would have one complete page for the RS, and another for the RS pro, with ALL the info on them, like info about boost and turbo also. What is the weight of the RS pro without wires ?
