Team Orion Vortex Race Spec BL ESC

RC Car Action - RC Cars & Trucks | Team Orion Vortex Race Spec BL ESC

New from Orion:

The Team Orion Vortex Race Spec BL ESC is a brushless speed controller for racers. It features the latest brushless technology and is ready for the hottest motors on the market.

VFS – Variable Frequency System

The unique variable Frequency System is responsible for the super smooth response of the controller. It optimizes the driving frequency in relation to the throttle position. Like this the motor is always at best efficiency and the driver gets a smooth but precise control at any time.

Ultra Low Profile Design

To ensure a very low CG, the electronic components of the Vortex Race Spec controller are designed as flat as possible and are positioned as low as possible. Car designers optimize the CG of their chassis – with the Race Spec controller we follow this strategy.

Setup possibilities

The Race Spec Controller comes with 5 pre-set setups which have been optimized by our international racing team. These settings work the best for the most popular categories. For pro’s who want to addapt the setups, it is possible using our special USB cable and software.

Packaging content

The brushless sensor technology of the Race Spec Controller is ready for motors with at least 4.5 turns (without fan) and 2.5 turn motors with fan. You can buy the controller with and without cooling set.

The Team Orion Vortex Race Spec BL ESC is available at your local store next week!
