This may have been a April fools joke but there is no reason why Tekin cannot do this. I love the current program ability of the ESC but Tekin would set a new standard in RC ESC's if they released software like this.

Just do it.

It would also be extremely cool if the Hotwire software was made to work with Windows Mobile so one could use there cell phone to program the ESC and not have to carry a laptop to the track.

I just bought two 16v2200 capacitors. I will just use one 16v2200 and see how that works out.

Isn't 16v4700 a little big? Shouldn't 16v2200 be more then enough? just curious.

Default RS/RSPro BEC question

Randy,

The RS and RSPro are rated up to 9 NiMH cells or 3S Lipo. Is the built-in BEC good for, and usable at, 3S LiPo or do I need an external BEC for 3S LiPo?

Ive got 2 16v330 low ESR caps on my RS Pro. Temps dropped when I added the 2nd one. I'm using it with a 5.5 in my B44.

I thought that the higher capacity caps had a potentially slower discharge, or they couldnt react as fast to the power fluctuations or something like that.

True or False? Anyone?

that will work.
i hath a 16v4700 so i used that.

I have tried 24timing on the motor and 25 on the boost.
don;t try this when you want to keep your motor.
I hath a lot of power. I wath super acceleration and the highest top speed.
I did just a few laps and tempt my motor on almost 180.
I didn't hath to drive an other lap or 2 because than it will become very hot.

just wanted to see wath ha pent.
Changed the timing on the motor back to 20 and boost on 20 so in total 55.
This is for the track were i drive the best setup.
good top speed and good acceleration. also lightest geared car on the track.
temps stay well under the 165
Tried later with a speedpassion motor. boost on 28 and geared it heavier.
motor staied also under the 165 but hath to gear 0,5 heavier.

I will test saterday with timing to see if the tekin motor is faster than the speedpassion. feld like it was but the times will show if i'm right.

Thanks for the joke but still i want a lighter interface. it looks great but it's to heavy for my laptop.

Je kunt je auto zwaarder vertanden als de motor koel blijft.
ga je ook nog eens harder.
ik heb mij ook verbaast dat de motor koel blijft.

Sad thing is, that software interface would be way easier to use. Makes you wonder where the real joke is. :-)

Ran the 194 software today for the first time.

17.5 Rubber Touring, zero motor timing, full boost, sensored only, TP 3, and I like it a lot. Power delivery seems more linear, but there's a definite improvement on low end torque, as apparent by the audible tire spin if get trigger happy out of the hairpins.

If I drive more like I should have been all along, and use the proportional throttle control my DX3r as a proportional control instead of an on-off switch [as is so easy to do in the stock classes], the car has never accelerated so hard out of a corner, and an absolute rocket on the straight.

Also, with no gearing changes over what I was running with 189, temps were down to 125-130*F after a 6 minute run [new club time], and never exceeded 150 even when I decided to hot-swap 4 batteries in an effort to learn the new track layout now that I have the car setup.

I suppose I could gear back up now, but I'll probably leave it alone for now.

What FDR? I'm guessing 4.2+.
