Default Program Cards

Does anyone know of a place where you can buy the Hobbywing program cards in the US?

Which ESC is it for. Is it for a Redcat model? I just got a program box from Kurt@URCHobby and I have used it and it works great very easy to use!!

The newer electric Redcat models all seem to use Hobbywing ESCs.

In particular I was looking for one to use with an Earthquake 8E and a Caldera 10E.

The LCD program box works great drop Kurt@URCHobby a line and he can hook you up. I hve it for my Earthquake 8e/Backdraft 8e works great easy to use, once Kurt walked me thru it over the phone.

All the program card does is allow you to change the settings on the ESC through an easier to use interface.

You can change all of the same settings through the speed control itself by using the SET button and watching the LEDblinks.

There is absolutely no reason you need this device, but it is a fairly cheap nice to have item.

Roughly $30 for the top of the line one or $10 for the smaller one.

You can adjust a lot of settings on the ESC, ie brake force,drag brake, punch, rev%, motortiming, lipo settings. I have just touched the surface
