Nope. Waiting on them to say it's fixed before swapping out the esc again!

Exactly what’s the problem with 28-pole motors?

Has anyone submitted a bug report so that Castle is aware of the problem?

Yes, they have know for quite some time. Problem is it wont keep sync so you can never get full power. However the old ice controllers can keep up.

I sent my Ice 100 in after it let the smoke out. They sent me a new 100 edge, as a replacement. It will not run my Hacker 60 5sV2 thats in my Big Foot ( not mine the 3DHS one). I ordered a Gecko120 HV from Altitude hobbies on a Sat. And received it on Monday. Only tested on the bench but seems perfect and very easy to program . BL

Downloaded and flashed my Edge 100 Esc with the new firmware using the Castle Link. My A60-6xs works great now on 6S, full power now available.

Download and run the firmware software from the castle site "Downloads" tab. Plug in your castle link to your computer, plug in your throttle wire from the ESC to the castle link (remember to plug the red wire back in if you disabled the BEC). The software should auto-detect and ask to update firmware.

Hey Lacy.

I am a mac user too, but I use this program Parallels. It allows you to run windows on your Mac.
