Wow, they added everything I want in an esc, data logging, HV bec, 5.5A bec ( no more glitching or brown outs when using savox servo's), added a port for Hotwire ( no more tearing out wires to use Hotwire. Can't wait for the pro version!


Oh, and PROGRAMMABLE LVC!!

The Hotwire port is nice. The data logging is potentially useful depending on the implementation. But somehow I expected more. This seems like a very small incremental upgrade.

datalog is useful for tuning boost or gearing. some of the guys at our track use the orca logger to find out their max rpm which helps them figure out boost settings.
hopefully the data logger can create a graph, that will definitely be a useful function.

so... anyone wanna buy 2-3 RS/pros? lol.

I would wonder if 1s is even an option considering the overall size.

For motors below 8.5 and 4wd setups we have something else in the works

We do plan to make a 1S version as well with a booster, but no sense in packing it around in all the cars that run 2s.

Lots of new stuff coming soon

Looks like a very solid upgrade for the 2S stock crowd.

Looks good. Imaging though how sexy this thing would look with some solder cups

Maybe something like this so it can still be milled from the top.

Not trying to step on toes, just an idea...
