2007 Edition – Improved Soft- and Hardware
The LRP SPHERE Competition Brushless+Brushed digital is one of today¡¦s most advanced brushless speed controls. The LRP Factory Team dominated and won multiple race meetings during this years season using brushless systems!
Like in real car motor sports, the LRP R&D engineers in close cooperation with the world wide LRP Factory Team constantly improved and optimized the original Sphere Competition speed control during the last month to reach the ultimate quality and performance on the race track!
The fantastic result of multiple days and nights of testing and racing around the world is the all new SPHERE Competition Brushless+Brushed ¡§2007 Edition¡¨
With a highly improved soft- and hardware, all speed secrets of the LRP Factory Team are included now! The story of the LRP BRUSHLESS technology is a story of success in 2006:

  • IFMAR Vice World Champion 1/12th Scale,
  • 1st place German Championship Touring Car Modified
  • 1st place US ROAR Onroad National 1/12
  • 1st place Russian Outdoor Championship
  • 1st place Spanish Championship, 4WD
  • 1st place Spanish Championship, 2WD
  • 1st place Russian Indoor Championship Touring Car

New features of the ¡§2007 Edition¡¨:
Improved ADPC:

  • 8 maps instead of 6 for finer adjustments.
  • latest team maps are incorporated for all classes.
  • revised maps for new Vector X11 4.5t motor with sintered magnet.
  • improved and more precise throttle control for all motors.

Improved Push Brake:

  • new efficient brake software, more control and lower motor-/speedo-temperature.

Improved Automatic Brake:

  • more precisely adjustable in smaller increments.
  • revised brake maps for perfect operation with sintered- and bonded-magnets.

Internal-Temp-Check System:

Internal-Temp-Check System: as a world-exclusive the „2007 Edition¡§ allows you to read-out the maximum internal temperature that the speedo reached. To save it to the memory you have to briefly apply brakes after the run before you turn the switch off. You can conveniently read-out the temperature back in the pits since it remains stored until you turn it on the next time regularly (which will reset the memory)

This new feature allows you to accurately check if all is running well or if you¡¥re close to shutdown already!

Launch Control:

Well known and famous from our brushed speedos! Now also available for brushless, the launch control allows „rocket like¡§ starts. After activation it gives you more power one time for the start (this feature is only recommended to be used with touring cars on high traction surfaces!).

Modes:

Changes from „2007 Edition¡§ over normal SPHERE Competition (factory defaults: grey shaded):

  • Mode.2 (ADPC): contains 8 instead of 6 values
  • Mode.4 (Automatic Brake): more precisely adjustable in smaller increments. Revised maps for perfect operation with sintered- and bonded-magnets.

Mode 1 (AutoCell System):

Mode LED
Value 1
Value 2
Yellow
LiPo/NiMH Automatic
4-7cell NiMH Racing Mode

Mode 2 (ADPC): Higher value means more overall power and aggressive throttle response

Mode LED
Value 1
Value 2
Value 3 Value 4 Value 5 Value 6 Value 7 Value 8
Red
Smooth Power: 1X
Smooth Power: 2X
Smooth Power: 3X Smooth Power: 4X Smooth Power: 4X Smooth Power: 5X Smooth Power: 5X Smooth Power: 6X

LRP Team Tip:

Following settings are the preferences of the LRP Factory Team:

  • Touring Car: Bonded: 4-7 Sintered: 3-5
  • Off-Road 2wd + Truck: Bonded: 1-2 Sintered: 1
  • Off-Road 4wd: Bonded: 1-4 Sintered: 1-3
  • 1/12: Bonded: 3-5 Sintered: 2-4

Mode 3 (Initial Brake): allows you to set a certain level of „hand-brake-effect¡§

Mode LED
Value 0
Value 1
Value 2 Value 3 Value 4 Value 5 Value 6
Yellow/Red (alternate
No Initial Brake
Going from lowest to highest inital brake setting(value 1 = minimum / value 6 = maximum)

LRP Team Tip:

Good starting point for the brake is 80% (bonded) and 70% (sintered) on the radio, for all classes. But make sure you do the radio-setup with all settings on the radio on 100%.

Mode 4 (Automatic Brake): allows you to set a slight braking action in neutral range

Mode LED
Value 0
Value 1
Value 2 Value 3 Value 4 Value 5 Value 6
Yellow/Red (same time)
Automatic Brake
Going from lowest to highest Automatic Brake setting(value 1 = minimum / value 6 = maximum)

LRP Team Tip:

You achieve the same natural slowdown as a brushed motor with no autobrake when you set value 2/3 (for bonded magnet) or 0/1 (for sintered magnet).
