Questions?? Blinky ESC

Hello,

My understanding is that stock racing for 1/10 scale requires a Blinky ESC.
Can you help me understand what this means?
Is it an RPM limiter?
Is it a current limiter?
If the stock motor is set at 17.5T, why is a Blinky ESC needed?

Many thx

Why a new topic?

In an ESC there is a complete advanced motormanagement. many adjustments regarding timing can be changed in many ways to boost the performance. This means you have to know your stuff and if you do not do it right it will damage the motor and/or ESC.

Blinky is a program mode with zero timing and only a limited control on some other settings to keep it simple and equal for all drivers.
In this mode the ESC wil give a blinking light to show the technical inspection that the blinky program is selected.
