to change direction of motor rotation, you must use usb adapter and go in software to change forward rotation direction. Sensored won't work the way sensorless will, but in sensored the brakes are more sure and throttle is smooth.
i have a 60 a x car and with sensor cable conected put the b wire on the c motor and vice versa and motor invert the rotation that was what i need ,is t the same on the 120 a esc or is a matter or luck thanks i really need this esc to run the motor in oposite rotation and be able to use the sensor other way is not logical if not possible is a big no no on this esc i didn t notice before i buy i trust it was the same as the 60 a that a change wires and have no problems anyone have made it turn in oposite rotation thanks
You must use usb adapter and go in software, sensored doesn't work like sensorless, it won't function if the AB or C wire is wrong. You go in the software for CR or CCR and change it. This way the esc knows what you want.
I received today. This is copy of XERUN120A ver2.1. Beware:The HobbyKing HKSS programming card for HK 150A ESC is not suitable for this ESC.

I love this ESC. it's small and light and handles 3s easily. To program you will need an older Turnigy programming card, it works perfect and gives you 10 different settings to adjust (check out my video on programming). Overall i would buy another X-car 120 amp ESC.

Ottima esc. credo che ne prenderò altre. qualita' prezzo inconcepibile.
La consiglio a chiunque.
This is a very nice overall ESC for the 1/10 class, identical with the Hobbywing XERUN V2.1 version. Tested with almost all the suitable Hobbywing's firware and is working fine, the only thing i have to mention is that you have not an option to change rotation on a sensored motor with any of the firmware and the HKSS programming card is NOT working regardless of Hobbyking's statement on suitable accessories. So, although it is a very good ESC for the price , i will give only 4 stars as it came without user manual as well. I have already uploaded Hobbywing's manual,for anyone interested,you can find it on the "files" tab as: "HOBBYWING 60/120A v2.1 manual".
