I would say an Xcar 120a from hobbyking £25 I've had a few and are great. They are copies of a Hobbywing and you can use hobbywing software to program them. Also the trackstar version from them is good also.

Cheers

Matt

It does have the older hobbywing firmware that you will need to update.

Yep that's it. As said you can update it but you need to buy the USB adaptor which is only a few £

From what I have read am I right in saying that this one can be updated with v2.1 software but yet the other one can be updated with the v3 software which is newer?

The £25 one you update with hobbywing software. The one I suggested is fine as it is, or the trackstar gen 2 is same but has a plastic case. And you should be able to use the sky rc Bluetooth module on your phone to program it.

So watch better a plastic or metal case.

Overall which one would you get bearing on mind I don't have any adapters or programme cards. So many factors to think about

Well the metal case is better as it's more durable. I've used the £25 ones and they are fine and for a couple quid you buy the usb dongle and do it all on laptop or pc. Both good but the more expensive one is more tune able and should have more punch.

It's going to be used in a blinky tc so punch would be better I suppose

If I was looking now this is where I'd start, I'm guessing your only looking at club level? You can turn off boost/turbo to run blinky but it won't blink, not a necessity at club level, if anyone complains download the 508 software so it blinks
