Coming from LRP is the all-new USB Bridge V3 that allows to change firmware versions on the FlowX speed controller. The device comes including an USB cable, 200mm sensor wire as well as a manual and along with the V3 version of the USB Bridge, LRP also have the updated v2.2 firmware tool available for download to support the FlowX series speed controller. In addition to the FlowX the USB interface also supports the original Flow speedo as well as the iX8 and Spin controllers.
Coming from GForce is the TS50A Rev Control brushless speed controller. It offers a compact size of 35.3×32.4×19.7mm, a 6V/2A BEC system and it is usable with down to 8.5T motor in on-road classes and down to 11.5T motors for 1/10th buggy applications. Unique to the Rev Control is an RPM limiter that can be set to values between 10,000 and 20,000 RPM in 500 RPM increments using the optional Progbox device. The controller is rounded out by an aluminium heatsink case as well as a dust-protected electronic power switch.
RC Concept have introduced their all-new SC10R 1/10th brushless speed controller. Featuring the self-developed WTI technology the speedo brings together innovative programming and hardware with the new algorithms and a fast 32-bit processor, making for perfect power and brake control and ensuring the driver always feels perfectly connected to the car. On top of this help Japanese-made high-power FETs to efficiently use the power of today’s high-performance LiPo and LiHV batteries. The water and dust protected ESC is easily programmable using RC Concept’s EC Box or PC software and it has already proven its capabilities by coming in 3rd at this week’s EFRA 2WD European Championship in the hands of Reno Savoya.
Team Powers have introduced the new Radon Pro V3 brushless speed controller. The all-new ESC is substantially smaller and about ten percent lighter than the Pro V2 controller, it features a 6V/7.4V BEC system and a 180A rating. Softer 12AWG wires, a new internal on/off switch, a black receiver lead and the ability to use 25mm or 30mm cooling fans round out the hardware package. On the software side of things the speedo features 1kHZ to 16kHz throttle and brake frequency selection, it sports an RPM lock function to vary the overall powerband of the motor and a more linear boost and turbo function makes for improved drivability.
Coming from Hudy are their new brushless 40mm and 30mm fan units. Ball raced and thus highly reliable the fans offer easy to reach solder tabs that allow for quick and convenient wire replacements and more tidy wire routing. The fans are usable as motor and speed controller coolers and they include all-black 170mm wires.
Coming from Team Corally is the Cerix Pro 160 Racing Factory Black Edition brushless speed controller. The 2S to 3S LiPo compatible 1/10th scale speedo offers the same features and specifications and the standard, red case Cerix Pro 160 with the all-black alloy case making it better suited for all vehicles whose anodising colours clash with the original Team Corally red. The controller is widely adjustable in terms of throttle and brake control, boost and turbo functions and it offers a 7.4V/6.0V BEC system, ten programmable profiles and it comes including an optional add-on cooling fan.
Reedy’s all-new Blackbox 600Z Zero-Timing Sensored Brushless Competition ESC claims to be the perfect entry-level spec class ESC thanks to its economical price, versatility and race-proven performance. Excellent throttle and brake feel, a wide range of adjustability and robust hardware make the Blackbox 600Z suitable for a variety of spec racing applications, including entry level and cost-controlled spec race programs that mandate a specific ESC.
Coming from RPM and made for most Traxxas 1/10th off-road vehicles is an ESC cage for the Castle Creations Mamba X speed controller. The design allows to securely fasten the speedo in the chassis while also holding the on/off switch neatly. The cage uses the original mounting pattern of the chassis, doing away with the need to use double sided tape while also allowing to easily remove the controller for cleaning and maintenance. The cage for the Castle Mamba X ESC fits in the stock location on the Traxxas Slash 2WD, Slash 2WD LCG, Slash 4×4, Slash 4×4 LCG, Stampede 4×4 and Rally, while also working on other Traxxas 1/10th scale vehicles as well. The cage is available in black or blue colour and it is made of RPM’s renown nylon material for long lasting performance.
