Just a quick Question - Shottky Diodes - what do they do and are they necessary? I find them the most fiddly things to keep installing every time I change the motor but I follow the instructions and it says use them so I am. Any tips? Will let you know how I go...

Cheers

Run the diode as it protects the speedo from back emf when you apply the brakes, it acts like a generator and speedos don't like a a huge spike going the wrong way.
I solder mine on the connectors at the speedo end so you dont have to change from motor to motor.
Also run the Capacitor

Smooooth!!!!

Cheers

That answers that one, Thanks adyb - will do as you suggest and solder the diode to the speedo instead!

WOW!

First runs with the MX Pro last night, not without its problems (All self inflicted I add) - New Track and it was very tight!

Heat 1 Soldered the motor wires on the wrong way around doh!
Heat 2 Finished 3rd 16 laps but not quick
Heat 3 again 3rd but not quick again
Realised that a crash in heat 2 has made the gear mesh increadably tight so no wonder there was no speed

Qualified 9th in the C
Final Used the "Launch Control" and it went off the line like the preverbial scalded cat!
Fabulous control, acceleration and top speed to drive through the field to end up 2nd! Just wish I had it right from Heat 1!

Can't praise the MX Pro enough! Easy to set up and to change settings.

Cheers Terry

Paul

Had the first testing with the MX Pro today. As the next race is about 10 days away it was just on the workbench. After reading the manual and playing around with the programming I have to say itīs really one of the most amazing ESCīs I ever had. Size is really very small and looks very good. Also you can see the guys at MRT did spend a lot of time on details. I choose the version with solderposts and these are made that way so you can fit even the thickest wire easily.
Also very good is the programming. Once you have understand how the MX works you donīt need a manual anymore. This is quite different from some other ESCīs I have or had in the past which were a pain to program.
The older VX Pro also was very good but I think the MX is not just better itīs miles ahead. Didnīt expect that difference before.

Hi

The MX works great in 1/12 with 4 cells. I've been running one for a while now with absolutely no problems. Their size and performance makes them ideal.

Hi Ian, thanks for helping Merciless.

Merciless...

"Sorry to ask , and i'm sure it's been answered already but are these 4 cell compatable ??" YES

"i.e is it going to work as well/better than my lrp in my 12th car ??"
YES (I am biased, but then I know the detailed specs!)

"Cheers guys , would love to go british if possible !!"
British is best... of course!!!

The MX Pro fits nicely in my new 415 MSX.
So easy to solder the fat 12AWG wires on the big solderposts.
Also enough room for installing a Schottkydiode and Powercap.

Last weekend I had the first race with the MX Pro and Terry I have to say the MX not only looks good. You know what I mean. Haha.
Yes itīs really fantastic. Smoothest speedo I ever had but power also is very good and soo easy to programm. You really donīt need a manual for this.
The race was the first one for me since about 3 month also new/upgraded car and new transmitter. So didnīt expect too much in the beginning. But qualified 2nd for the A-Main. Winning then 1 Main and 2nd places in the other two.
