Default Vega Factory ESC

Has anyone seen a or heard anything about the new Vega Factory ESC? I cannot find any info about it on the web at all, I just wanted some better idea on specs and some pictures etc

I contacted the UK importer but the reply I got was of limited information

ive had a Vega V3 before and it was totally waterproof..i was at a national in july and it was totally pissing it down and just about everyheat you would see a top end esc go pop..while mine kept on running

they are totally waterproof and are really good speed controllers..not heard nothing about a new one though

I'll be getting a close up look of one in exactly a week as a mate of mine is a Centrepoint Driver. If you haven't found any more by then I'll let you know what I have seen.

I am more than interested in the MX but am exploring every avenue.

Andy- that would be great if you could give me some feedback

No pics I'm afraid but I've had a good close up look.

Its almost identical in size to the GM SX9, in fact its almost identical full stop, same tabs etc... it has a cardboard outside piece covering the actual casing which I don't like but its the smallest ESC I've seen.

The bloke running it said it went well and he's experimenting with it at the moment.

It is a repackaged GM sx6 but made waterproof (hence the cardboard bit)

X2, you do not know that for sure!!!! I have one in my 12th at the moment. (got it this morning) and it looks really good. Yet to solder it in though. The instructions say it is a Unlimited speedo. The SX6, and SX9 both have motor limits.

A centre point driver on another forum says that it is not a GM. Who really cares anyway, as long as it runs fine. Jonathan

Your right, perhaps it isnt a GM. Perhaps they just are the exact same size, have the exact same features and the exact settings as each other by coincidence
Never mind anyway, Ill be getting one very soon, they are VERY small GM or not.
