Do I really need an External BEC to run a Savox servo in my XO-1? Or will a cap pack be sufficient? Lemme know your set-up...
XO-1/Vorza Flux/Tmaxx picco reddot/Jato 3.3/ Ofna LX2 with dual Savox
Well all Xo-1's come with a cap bank, so that's not an option so just add a bec and call it done.
What does a cap bank have to do with a BEC?
A glitch buster plugs into the receiver directly... The issue I am trying to get addressed is that when the CC BEC is hooked up, the only way the ESC arms is leaving it switched on and then plugging in the batteries... This is not supposed to happen because I have the same setup in my hpi vorza and it works perfectly...
Really? Does your Hpi buggy have a Traxxas tqi radio system also? It has to do with xo-1 liabilities unlock on the RX. Cut that esc switch off and solder it closed and call it well done.

Stop busting my canards!
I have a little glitch buster cap that plugs directly in to the reviever. I use a Savox servo and it works fine.
The Annihilator....fastest XO-1 on planet Earth.
I use the stock servo and it works fine.
you have to deactivate the "traxxas live link in the ESC. Then u can use a external BEC without Problems.
Had that problem with my HighVolt servo. After deactivating "Livelink" with the CastleCreation Programmer, everything worked fine.
you should unlock the car before. after deactivating. this isn't possible anymore
+1 exactly Ch3^ Thank you, That's what I've been trying to tell him. Red led on rx = bad, Green led on rx = good.

Castle link live is what locks your Esc to your Traxxas rx and the 50mph speed lock. Without it people could just change rx to unlock the car. At first it wasn't even available and you were stuck with the tqi. You keep having trouble because your powering up the Esc before the new bec feeds power to the rx. So the rx can't check the system and arm before the Esc starts looking for the green light to arm itself. It's clear as mud, right?
Or maybe it was rx before Esc your in the clear. I can't recall exactly it's been awhile sorry. Either way the power up sequence must be correct for the Esc to arm.
