New approval listing for ROAR Sportsman class ESCs

ROAR

The ROAR Executive Committee, including the Electric Section Chairperson and advisory along with its Affiliate Manufacturers, have compiled a listing of electronic speed controllers (ESC) for use in ROAR Sportsman racing programs. Speed controllers eligible for Sportsman class racing must be capable of providing zero timing advance along with disabling advanced motor control functions. When the sportsman profile is enabled, it shall be indicated by a blinking LED while the ESC is armed and in neutral position. ESC manufacturer affiliates have been working with ROAR Section Committees to develop the sportsman ESC definitions and update firmware to meet the class standard. Firmware in the latest advanced speed control products must provide a profile, which allows its use to comply with Sportsman ESC profile requirements. Several affiliates are working on firmware updates which will allow additional ESC’s to be added. Members should contact the manufacturer directly for firmware updates or questions regarding any ESC they wish to have added to the ROAR Sportsman approved ESC listing.

Martin Lissau wins Danish National opener

Martin Lissau wins Danish National opener

Last weekend the first round of the Danish Nationals took place at the Odense RC MiniRace track. Martin Lissau was present to compete the first time with the Shepherd Velox V10 and with limited possibilities for practice because of the rain he went into the first round of qualifying and set a new track record on his way to clocking the fastest time. Right after, the rain arrived again and the rest of the qualifying was canceled. The finals were scheduled for Sunday and finally the track was dry. Right from the start of the final Martin pulled away and never looked back, running flawlessly for 30 minutes to cross the line in first position ahead of Claus Rygeskov in 2nd and Martin Hansen in 3rd. In the 1/8th scale class Henrik Christensen had the lead from the start to the end to take victory in front of fellow Shepherd racer Hans Andersen in 2nd, with John Jessen 3rd.
