Steveonamission... Hi there, any chance of adding me on facebook? I have a 10.5 set up that I need to try but it might be worth comparing against yours as you sound like you have it running well..!

The maxium you can get ius 48 degree's on the old gold band motor.

The plutonium can add 60 degrees with Version 2.0 board fitted that offsets the timing by +1
Cheers chap! So thats a 12' change for the -/+ 1 on moving the sensor board, what about the -/+ 0/2/4 on the endbell?

Hi Conrad depends on the motor you have.
The spurt motor only has +2,+4 and +6 on the end bell and adjustment is via the 3 motor screws that hold the motor together. +1 adjustment is possible when removing the endbell with the sensor port and there is another screw adjustment internally.

The plutonium is fully adjustable on the endbell

The spurt i believe is 6 degrees per notch so +2 would equate to 12 degrees (Andy will correct me if I am wrong)

The plutonium is 12 degrees per notch so +1 is 12, +2 is 24 and so on
But the Pluto has 2 different sensor boards which gives a different 'zero' point.
Board V1 is a true '0' when endbell reads '0'
Board V2 is at '0' when endbell reads -1. This allows 5 notches (60 degrees of advance)

Hope that helps

That's great thanks Baker, it is the older gold band (short) motor I'm using in our 1/12th class, we rn 0' timing on the esc so I thought I'd play about with the motor timing to try and get a sweet spot in our limited gearing range.

So if I go +4 on the endbell and +1 on the sensor board I should have 36' of additional timing and with a maximum of 48' available to me I was previously only running 12' (0,0).

Default XPS PRO INSTRUCTIONS

Hi All,

Just sat down and re wrote the instructions for the XPS Pro ESC's. In particular the V1.2.
Even though they instruction book was OK i decided to rewrite with more detail as to what the various modes affect the ESC's and motors performance.
So much so that a new customer was able to get his head around the parameters to achieve better results in his racing compared to running an LRP Flow.
Another happy customer.

As a final note, these ESC's are brilliant in 1/12 scale with our the need for a Booster pack !
Just set voltage at 3.2V to 3.4V. No problems at all. All that will be required is the use of a 7.4V pack for programing.

Cheers Ren

Below is the link to the rewritten instructions in PDF format.
