+1. Use PayPal for product (not GIFT), and that should be protections enough. Never had an issue.

This is not something they share, and no it's not.

Maybe it's included in the profiles: the smoother concave profiles(1and2) are high frequency, and the convex ones (4and 5) are low frequency.... Novak esc's drive frequency are adjustable, why not tekin's ???

Profiles are just percentage of travel verses your actual throttle position. I rarely changed it from linear, as I could adjust it better on the radio if I wanted more or less throttle response depending on the trigger pull. Drive frequency is how fast the FETS turn on and off to drive the motor. Higher equals smoother and a slightly faster top speed. Lower is more punchy and a slightly lower top speed. Tekin with this latest version seem to have made the whole feel a little better. Not sure why it has taken 3 years. If you are looking for control over this aspect then it best to look at other ESC's.

(Oh $hyt, here we go again) Because it's not, and they're still the 'go to' ESC. If you don't like it, stay orange. The throttle profiles are the same as setting expo on your TX on the throttle channel.

I guess it's a big secret !!! I already have the Novak Gtb (3.5khz) that seems to kill the new high frequency speedos (tekins, speedpassion,etc...) in the bottom end (0-35mph) !!! And that's before applying expos and acceleration to the radio ! Even the new gtb2 and kinetic have less bottom end punch with their 13.8khz frequencies, but it can be lowered to 7.0khz to gain a bit in the bottom end, where I think races can be won !!!

If you're really so fired up about it, go borrow a buddy's tekin, an oscilloscope, and a frequency counter.

For the rest of us, it just doesn't matter.

There is no need to offer adjustable drive frequencies at this time. There is far more going on than just drive freq's.

Any help much appreciated!
Anybody?

Have checked Hotwire with the buggy and no probs there...

Sounds like a problem with your little white wire my friend. try feeling for kinks and what not. i had that problem with my lrp and all i had to do was put a new tab on the end.

And also to add how freaking simple and easy it is to understand tekins software. all nicely labeled with full explanations when you highlight each feature.
K.I.S.S.
Keep It Simple Stupid. And tekin did just that for us and it works amazing imo.

IF that were the case, wouldn't it just flash all the LEDs to say no signal found? As I mentioned, BEC is powering everything indicating that the red and black wires are connected, no LEDs at all are showing up on the esc at all...
