Connected new ESC X-CAR 120A First time and it does not work. Double beep and double flash of green light like wrong voltage but voltage is ok. 2S lipo is fully charged, measured voltage is 8.34V and works on other X-CAR (I have several such ESC, not he first experience). Is it anything can be done to make it work or just to replace ?

AS you said this si not your first experience because you have several such ESC, maybe you can help me with the following issue: I use this esc on my Buggy 1/10 with a 4.5t sensored brushless motor and my issue is that I can not adjust the brake in no way and simply I can not run the car. I've done all kinds of adjustment via programmer card, but the fact is that I can not adjust the brake, does not really work. Has anyone had similar problem ?? someone can help solve this problem ?? Grateful for any help.

Any idea how to reverse rotation of the motor sensored? I have tried several different firmware upgrades and have not found an option yet for reversing rotation. I cannot do it on my radio as I have hooked this up to my drift car and running it reversed on the controller causes the back up lights to come on going forward.

HI Laurent thanks for your attention. I have tried to change the default value but still not work. By updating the firmware is a good idea ??

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.

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".
