tvih, you are from Finland? That's awesome, the Land of the Midnight Sun. Every time I hear the old Warren Zevon song, "Roland, the Headless Thompson Gunner" I think of Finland.

glennhl, yeah, guilty as charged

hotrodchevy14, they're not quite out of business as far as I can tell, though at the very least they have seemed to be going through some sort of very major rough patch. But now that they have a new website up and all (Speed Passion), hopefully they'll make a full comeback.

I am trying to find and load a Blinky program on a Reventon 1.1 EX for 1s racing. Does anyone know if this can be done on a Mac laptop? Windows only?

I see the link on page 884 for dropbox programs not sure if that's what I need or if I can even do anything with it. Any help on this would be appreciated, I'm not the most technical person.

SP has had a new ESC in development for what seems like years. The company is such a mess that I question if they can actually pull it off.

Hi, I am new here, I am actually asking for your kind help of getting the manual of Speed Passion Drift Master Combo.

I actually started back on playing my rc car with this system and decided to program the esc. I haven't fully charged my lipo pack, it is currently charging as I am writing. Before the pack was at 3.8v per cell. I connected to the battery (before the charging) to the esc, then the plug into the program card, turned it on, the program card didn't show anything.

Could this be due to low battery, or the program card busted or something?

Your program card probably is not working, or is the wrong one for your esc.

I managed to connect the card to the esc, I had to retry several times at least 5 tries, that was based on luck as well whether the esc or the card will pick each other's signal for me to program it.

My intention was to set the low voltage cut off at 3.4v/s

I am wondering if the program card can be substituted with arduino?

I can't do it of course since I'm not much of a programmer and not enough tools to do so either

You can find some info here:

Nothing about the new ESC yet. Should be interesting though.
I've been a huge SP Fan-Boi- and have multiple SP ESCs.
Thankfully they all work really well and I haven't had any issues.

First thing first, make sure you have the Servo cable from the ESC to the Prog. box is plugged in correctly. If you flip the wires, it may not power on.

You should be able to adjust the Voltage cut off once the box connects.
(I suspect the cable switched and the + isn't in the right pin on the prog. box.)
