When we set out to release a new product, our goal has always been to offer our customers the very best products possible and it’s no exception with our new FR-8 2.0 Pro ESC. We live, breath, eat and sleep R/C racing, and we love our customers to have an edge over their competition. From our highly sought after brushless racing motors and batteries to our proprietary motor tuning tools, since 1980, racers have counted on us for the highest performance products in R/C!
To continue our tradition of excellence, countless hours have gone into R&D, to bring you a professional racing ESC, second to none in performance and value! The heart of the FR-8 2.0 PRO is the high-performance 32-bit CPU and proprietary firmware, providing you with buttery smooth throttle response, unmatched power delivery, and all the adjustable parameters you’ve come to expect from a pro racing ESC!
WHAT’S NEW WITH THE FR-8 2.0 PRO:
NEW – Built-in Bluetooth allows programming the parameter settings and firmware upgrades via our free Apple or Android App
NEW – No additional program card required. Just download the Apple or Android App to your Bluetooth device and you’re ready to start adjusting your ESC!
NEW – Supports real time programming. No need restart the ESC after adjusting any parameter.
NEW – Plenty of updated and new adjustable parameters, for fine-tuning, for every type of racing.
NEW – 32-bit microprocessor supports more powerful processing capability and more accurate motor output.
NEW – Enhanced throttle response, acceleration, linearity, and drive ability.
NEW – Multiple protection features: Low voltage cut-off protection, over-heat protection, and throttle signal loss protection.
