I would think the ezrun SC8 would be perfect for that.

if you run with 2s-3s, the hw sct pro esc and v3.1 or v2.1 esc is good for ya

but if you run with 4s-6s, then xerun 150a esc is really good for ya,

i suggest to use combo, because many pluses you can get with combo HW
like temp cutoff, but in many cases it wont go further than 130 degrees

When using the multifunction programming box to read 2s lipo cell voltage, it always reads one cell low. I checked the voltages with a multimeter and they were spot on. So it is defiantly the programming box.

as in 3.2v is actually 2.2v
or
3.2v is actually 3.1v?

I assume he means that if it's a 3.2 x 2s, it's only reading 3.2 instead of 6.4?

Never tested it myself honestly.

exactly why im asking him since he didnt give alot of info so its hard to help w/ a lack of info and im not gonna assume i kno whats going on without that info to help him

not to sound rude...but thats why im asking for more info to help him becuz the LCD box states its reads within so any volts and doesnt claim to be 100% exact

Lets say the the cells are at 3.2 each it might say cell one is at 3.12v and cell two is at 3.2 v where as my multi meter and charger says both are at 3.2v

Keep in mind these are made up numbers at this time but explains the kind of problem I'm seeing. I can get some real numbers when I get home from work.

you vm, charger and balance checker should all readthe same, because they all read from the same source, the 3 pin balance connector. Resistance might be different because of differences in interfaces and wire lengths and gauge. If your using a $1000+ volt meter, then its probably more correct than a $25 led box... Chargers can be off and some actually have a calibration mode where you can adjust it with a high quality volt meter.

I dont think it is intended to give the most accurate reading like a multi-meter does. I think it is intended to let you know if the battery is charged or not, so you don't put a dead battery in your car before a run.

Yup, threw me for a loop as well. I plugged mine in and figured one of the cells must be weak or something. So I throw my blinky balancer on it and it didn't do anything... So I broke out the multimeter and bam! They were in perfect balance.

Yeah, I figured as much. I wouldn't think it would be to difficult to make it accurate though. Maybe a future software upgrade will address the issue.

Maybe you didn't read it, so I try it again. Is there a bug in V3.3 and do I wait for V3.4, because I can not update to the newer ESC firmware?
