Press Release from Reedy:
Reedy’s Blackbox 1000Z+ PRO is a simple to use, yet powerful ESC with versatile features that make it suitable for both Modified and Spec class racers. Excellent throttle and brake feel, a wide range of adjustability, and robust hardware make the Blackbox 1000Z+ PRO an excellent choice for a variety of racing applications.
Improving upon the 1000Z+ it replaces, the 1000Z+ PRO features a CNC-machined top case with an integrated heat sink, fan port, and bolt pattern suitable for an optional 30mm fan. Additional Drag Brake, Drive Frequency, and Max Brake Strength settings option have been added to allow for even greater fine tuning. A more reliable Power button, shared with the 510R ESC, doubles as a selection button for settings changes. However, by popular demand, the option to make settings changes using the Black PROgrammer2 (#27027, sold separately) has been added!
