Improved BEC Functionality
Now adjustable: 5.5V or 7.5V
Improved Audible Alerts
The ability to diagnose and resolve problems in the field are made easy as this ESC will communicate with audible tones when certain conditions are present. Alerts are present for start fail, voltage cutoff, radio glitch, over-temperature, over-current and excessive load detections.
Updated circuitry and refined software makes for ultra-smooth starts!
Link Live functionality added
Link Live is a way for the controller to communicate power system information to an external device. This feature, when enabled, will allow users to experience real-time telemetry data such as battery voltage, ESC temperature, motor power output and battery ripple. (Requires purchase of Castle S.BUS2 Telemetry Link)
Manual programming settings include Brake/Reverse Type, Voltage Cutoff, Brake Amount, Drag Brake and Motor Type.
