  • XL-5 programming question...

    is there anyway to take the reverse delay off of an XL-5 controller?

    Nope, sorry. The XL-5 is fixed with the reverse delay.

    Rckcrwlr might know more, but as far as I know it is fixed.

      yeah, that's what i was afraid of. oh well. i just did a little "jam" session with my rig out in my office's parking lot. even with about a 75% charged pack, that 35t motor has some nuts!!!

      plus, it sidehills like a dream, i just ran a 30 foot long curb with little steering input....

        The XL-5 is set with the delay...Nothing you can do. It is a great ESC for a Scaler...Not so for a comp truck...

          yeah, which sucks, cause it can actually handle 8 cells...

          i may just have to pick up a good mini-t pack tonite or tommorrow and run 7.2v with my rooster instead of 9.6v.....

            so what should i do? give up voltage for no delay reverse? or deal with the bit of delay for the extra voltage?

              i would sacrafice volts and run no delay. if you need quick reverse and dont have it you are going to roll cost you points. the minor change in volts isn't going to hurt you that bad.

                I'm with Rockbound on this one. Unless you are talking about the difference between 7.2V and 11.1V, not worth the delay.

                There is a good difference between 7.2V and 9.6V, but just not enough for ME to want to loose instant reverse.

                Try it and see how it works with YOUR driving style

                  yeah, i ended up running the old rooster yesterday. but, "Dad's hobbies" had an extra 8.4v 2/3A pack laying around he cut me a good deal on, so the voltage wasn't that bad. i did notice that the 1400maH cells felt like they were dumping a bit towards the end of my second run, though, so i guess next time i'll just have to actually remember to bring my charger to peak my cells between runs.

                    That motor will do that to them...I noticed on my scaler that they die faster than in the comp truck...don't know why...most of the time the yota is in air...

                      Just ask. I know we had 2 good chargers that you'd have been welcome to use.
