Keep in mind, you are quoting Randy's post from 2 years ago...

Sounds just like CoreRC Pace 45R v Hobbywing 120A 1S in GT12, speeds the same at the end of the straight, one's just a bit quicker at getting their.

Does anybody know how to identify the ORCA speed control from a couple years ago that has built in dynamic timing in blinky mode?

Wasn't that a sw issue? You'd probably get better response on the ORCA forum or send Keith Yu a pm.

That was a software issue and as far as I know they were never sold and that software was never released anywhere. Keith and a couple of ORCA guys ran them at the nats on accident as he thought the software had been approved is my understanding. They served a year and a half ban from ROAR events and approvals for the mistake.

Did Tekin get in any trouble when the v203 was found to have dynamic timing in it ? Boy I remember the weekend or 2 of racing . our gearing /end bell timing adjustments was changing dramatically for the previous version .

Well that would be a book, not a chart and I will not come on here and say I was any sort of brushed motor tuner master. I did ok tuning my own motors but would likely bow out to some of the true masters, some of which are no longer with us such as the legend Mike Reedy.

There is an article I've been helping one of the magazines with lately. It's quite in depth and I'll try to post up the info once it's published. Or at the very least share what month issue it will be in.
