    Hi,
    I need to get rid of the motor/speed controller judder at start up.
    We are trying to start a shot stationary and only accelerate to walking speed.
    Its got the stock Castle 780kv motor and Castle XL2 5amp BEC speed controller.
    Anybody got any thoughts.

    Try this ESC:

    Hobbywing EzRun Max 5, and a lot of expo on your remote....

    What will the EzRun MAX5 do that the stock esc doesn't? What do you mean by "a lot of expo on your remote"?

    I am also very interested in making the Tero slower and more predictable at slower speeds. I have the expo cranked, but it still won't go at a 2-3mph pace.

    Does the Hobbywing EzRun Max 5 ESC allow you to go slower?

    The Hobbywing is much more sensitive, also in lower speeds. Another possibility is to use batteries with less voltage, for example 4 or 5S, instead of the stock 6S batt. Lower voltage means less turns/min (motor)


    Search for Expo curves in google. It lowers the sensitivity of the throttle knob near the middle position.
