The programming chart is identical for both ESC's, though I believe the XR8 Plus will be able to handle more turbo timing with less risk of the ESC thermaling compared to the XR8 SCT:



I ran into thermaling issues and premature failure with the XR8 SCT on 4S which would tend to last about 1-2 years before they would cook... I've got a XR8 Plus that is going on 4 years old without any issues yet... only XR8 SCT that I have left is running 2S in my Mini Truggy and that one is going on 2 years old, but I suspect that 2S will not cook it anytime soon, ha!

Has anyone had a problem with the latest firmware 4.04.09 crashing the HW app on an iPhone with latest IOS? I loaded this latest firmware version on my X10 Elite and when I tried to communicate with the esc the HW app crashed every time during the parameter table load. Went back to the 4.04.05 firmware and it worked fine. Is there anything I'm missing?

I poked around and managed to find the new ESC webpage if anyone is interested, it's not officially released yet.
It's called the XR8 Pro G2. Looks good, but unfortunately only 2-4s lipo like the SCT, which probably won't bother most US racers.
I've found the XR8+ the superior speedo (similar to billdelong) and have found 5S / 6S gives lower temps and higher efficiency for given output.
The 8.4V BEC is nice though.

Default OTA

Does the OTA work on the XR10 Pro Stock Spec and the XR10 Pro, or just the newest ESC’s?

Default Temp control for fans

Does any of the Hobbywing ESC have temperature control for the fan? 1/10 or 1/8.

I have a certain ESC which do have this feature and itīs really nice.
Especially if you replaced your fan with a high RPM version this could be very annoying noise in the pits.
Iīm interested to go for an additional ESC but would prfere if my next ESC also have this feature.

^%$#%!! I was really hoping they'd finally put the programming button in the case and just use a regular on / off switch.

I'm received different responses from different people. Will the Program Card HWA30501003 work with the XR10 Justock ESC?

Yes, that LED style programming box will work for basic functions. To have the ability to update the firmware, you have to have the newer LCD box and PC adapter.

ive got a basher that i want to swap a mamba x over to the xr8 and though i dont submerge it i do run in the occasional snow pile.
