The Skylink USB adaptor will also work.

Bill from HK advised that the HK Program Box is what you need. There is no software despite it being mentioned on their web pages. Not happy with that news and still waiting on the delivery of my ESC.

Ran the Sportsman ESC and v2 21.5 motor in my USGT car (VBC D06 bought from Hobbyking) at the ATS Series finale this past weekend in Edmonton. Managed to get TQ and won 2 of the 3 mains using this combo. The second place car was an Awesomatix running a trinity D4 and hobbywing esc. Needless to say, I was happy with the performance of the system. I was also using a Goteck servo and Turnigy lipo from Hobbyking. The idea behind my electronics selection is "you don't have to spend big $$$ to get big performance. "

Agreed

I ran the Sportsman ESC and a V2 21.5 in Blinky Stock over the weekend, and with exception of a 7 second glitch where the car just stopped (I think it was a loose wire, didn't do it again) and forgetting a motor fan so coming off at 91c (still ran ok though) The car was quick. Ran it in my A700 and managed to hold off a very high level driver in a T4 with LRP Flow and the latest Fantom 21.5 and a kamikaze pilot in a Yokomo BD7 with an uber tuned D4 and Hacker esc

My best laptimes were on par with what I got using an RSX speedy and I did my best race time ever.

Looks very nice tucked in there.
Care to share your ESC settings?

It is indeed a good size....nice and compact. I don't remember my settings right now, but I'll check when I get home.
I haven't played with the settings much. ..I just set them once to what I figured would be a good starting point, and then never felt the urge to change them.

FW: 2.01
HW: V1
Running Mode: Fw/Br
Motir Direction: Norm
Reverse Speed: 100%
Voltage Cutoff: 3.0V
Esc Overheat Protection: 105C
Motor Overheat Protection: 105C
Punch rate switch point: 50%
1st stage punch rate: 25
2nd stage punch rate: 30
Throttle input curve: no
Throttle dead band:80us
Drag brake: 0%
Brake strength:100%
Initial brake: =drag brake
Brake rate switch point: 50%
1st stage brake rate: 7
2nd stage brake rate: 20
Brake input curve: line

I set the brake strength to 100% in the esc, but pull brakes from my transmitter as needed. However, pulling brakes via transmitter means that you can no longer shut off the esc by pressing and holding the brakes for 10 seconds.
My punch settings are aggressive due to running a 21.5 motor in a 1450g car.

Anyone know why they set the punch low off the assembly line? So much lag from a dead stop. I have this on a 60a trackstar and an 80a trackstar and both do it. Trying to find the program card has been a nightmare.

Do these have terminal posts like most other speedies for the motor and batt wires? Can't tell from the photos under the heat shrink.

Default Good for 1/10 2WD buggy?

I'm starting to drive 2wd buggy, bought an Team c TC02CEVO kit and now looking for a ESC and motor combo.

I was thinking of this ESC because of cost and it being not to complicated.
The motor would be a 17T or a 13.5T trackstar V2.

Not really looking for a super fact combo, as i'm just started, and being consistent is my first priority.

Thx for the help!

Be fine for that just check before you run it as I had a faulty one, tell tale is a large spark when connecting to battery (should only be small) and would not run a motor sensored, only sensorless. First one in about 10 units I have had fail, and took a vid and did an RMA and was credited back for it so all good.

Won a fairly large race meet with one of these in my 21.5 car last weekend, was flawless all weekend.
