XPS large ESC
 
So i heard rumblings of a high voltage high amperage xps speed control on the horizon? any info??

#2 JimDrew Oct 18, 2011 11:37 PM

Yes, that is true. We have 3 types that we will be releasing:

14S / 175A - $199
18S / 200A - $249
24S / 250A - $299

The small one is the same length as the Castle HV160, but is 1/2" wider. It weighs 1 oz less too.

The medium size is 7" x 2.5" x 3/4" and weighs 1 oz less than the SPIN200.

The big one is 8" x 2.5" x 3/4" and weighs 2oz more than the SPIN200.

We are still testing the coding. There will be PC software to make changes to the settings.

...so in the last post I read about 'em the next step was the heat sinks... that's all sorted out?...

#4 rcbirk21 Oct 19, 2011 06:25 AM

so is there a timetable for a release? any smaller ones on the horizon, maybe in the 100amp range?

#5 JimDrew Oct 19, 2011 09:43 AM

Yes, heat sinks are resolved. We have some issues with fast throttle response causing commutation errors. The only way to resolve this is to slow down the throttle response (like everyone else does).

We have no intention of releasing smaller controllers at this point, but that could change.

#6 rcbirk21 Oct 19, 2011 09:48 AM

any kind of timetable?

#7 JimDrew Oct 19, 2011 04:35 PM

We are still doing some testing. 12S presents no issues regardless of the throttle response setting. 14S requires slower up/down, so we need to know where that threshold is. We won't release anything until it is ready.

Be suitable for helis too ???? Please ???

There is currently no heli mode, but a governer mode is being worked on.

Cheers

When will these be available?

the post just above yours... "No news yet. We are still beating on them."

We will have them at the AMA show next week.
