1: the new ESC heat sink changed...with 4 fan holes... 2: esc bec switch to 4A instead of 3A 3: the setting area add one option 4: add the Motor automatch matching method..
Huge list of new innovative features;
FOC (Field-oriented Control) for Super Linearity & High Torque & Extreme Silence
New sensor technology has changed the feel, performance, and overall tune-ability of the new Axe ESC and Motor in ways some have never experienced. Field-oriented Control is the name of this new tech, and is something all new to the scale trail, rock racing, and rc world in-general. This new style of sensor allows extremely accurate control and sensing of the motor while maintaining extreme performance and reliability. The motor and ESC are able to match the RPM of the motor to your throttle position under all driving conditions. This greatly improves down hill driving giving this system the ability to drive down hill under complete control. FOC technology also makes the whole system extremly silent, the motor doesn't create the annoying PWM noise when it is running.
Intelligent Torque Output & Speed Closed-loop Control for Easy Control Not just a new ESC and motor, the new FOC sensors, combined with Intelligent Torque output and closed loop speed control mean the ESC and motor will maintain the motor’s Torque level and RPM as the vehicles conditions change. Uphill, down hill, under load, you name it, your Axe system will do what you’re telling it to do.
Patented “Staggered Pole” Rotor Design for Ultra-low Torque Ripple The new Axe motor not only has a new sensor design, but compared to other rock crawler design motors uses an improved staggered pole rotor design. What does this mean? Smoother operation with no cogging, and very clean and consistent deceleration. Smoother brakes, smoother power, and transitions between each are improved. This is specific to trail and rock crawling and allows extremely precise throttle control under any load conditions.
Battery Reverse Polarity Protection RCHobbywing's AXE FOC Crawler system has been designed with a very unique feature protecting your ESC from damage caused by Battery Reverse Polarity, so no matter how many times you reverse the battery connections the AXE ESC and the paired motor are safe from damage. Maybe this feature is the first in R/C Car industry.
Applicable to All Weather & Track Conditions The IP-67 waterproof has been taken to a new level with the AXE System. Completely sealed ESC design with robust heatsink case design ensure the ESC is ready for anything you throw at it. The motor as well, is sealed, and combines a completely new sensor harness. No messy extra steps to make your system water proof.
High Driving Efficiency for Long Battery Life Extremely efficient design comes from the combination of new methods. The FOC sensors provided significant improvements to overall motor performance when compared to standard brushless setups. Runtime is increased dramatically while maintaining exceptional levels of power and response.
Professional Drag Brake Adjustments & Super Parking Capacity Drag brake rate, and drag brake tuning allows scalers to adjust not only the hill/hold/drag brake, but how quickly the brake applies. This allows high speed driving without sudden jerks or stops when releasing the throttle. The drag brake itself is super charged, and able to be run at extremely high levels. Compared to a standard crawling brushless setup, the drag brake in the Axe System can be rated at 200% in comparison.
Innovative Sensor Port An all new sensor harness is more than just water proof, and will take on all element from water to mud and dirt/dust. No need for anything extra, o-ring sealed, and uses a screw together design to ensure it won’t come loose.
Built-in Bluetooth for Connecting the Mobile APP Directly Built in connectivity means exactly that. The ESC has Blue Tooth built right in! Nothing extra is needed to access the ESC’s complete on board programming but your smart phone device and the Free Hobbywing App from your App Store. That’s right folks, the Bluetooth feature is BUILT INTO the ESC. No extra devices, wires or connections required.
Built-in High-precision Magnetic Encoder A high precision magnetic encoder is used in the motor to ensure precision and consistent information is provided to the ESC. This allows the ESC to have more information from the motor than standard “hall” type sensors and provides improved performance and efficiency.
Advanced and Secure Electronic Switch The dust, dirt, and waterproof switch housing ensures a long reliable life for your ESC, will not suffer from the problems most standard on/off switches encounter.
Multiple Programmable Items With enough settings to keep your vehicle running “just right”, there are also timing/boost settings, just in case it’s not fast enough, this feature allows you to unleash some extra top speed from your Axe System. Sometimes the trails are long and winding, so more wheel speed is welcome!
Due to the new sensor port design the best way to buy these is in combo's
