    I meant firmware versions. 1.32, is the latest. As far as which version of the castle link software, I'm running 3.41.1. So I'd say YOU'RE behind.

    So what was the motor's actuall temperature? I don't trust your "hand thingy" as a temperature probe. At least an IR reading is not a subjective 'feeling' by someones skin. I'll stick with my...
