This is the Reedy Blackbox 510R 2S Competition ESC with an included PROgrammer 2. Extensive race testing by Reedy's engineering and racing team has resulted in a high performance, high quality, and reliable ESC suitable for all levels of competition. Thanks to excellent throttle and brake feel, a wide range of precision adjustability, and durable high-quality hardware, the Blackbox 510R is suitable for a wide range of racing applications. 

With the Blackbox PROgrammer2, the full potential of the 510R can be exploited. In addition to working as a programmer, it also operates as a battery monitor and USB firmware update device. The 510R ESC includes two modes that can be modified and saved independently from one another. Standard mode offers a wide variety of tuning options while Expert mode takes it one step further and opens additional options for more experienced racers and/or racing classes that can take advantage of these advanced settings.

The following functions can be modified and saved using the Blackbox PROgrammer2:

  • Brake: Overall brake strength, frequency, drag brake, initial brake, and punch can be fine-tuned to perfect brake performance and feel in different vehicles and track conditions. Dynamic Drag Brake settings function allows users to add additional drag brake when conditions make it advantageous.
  • Throttle: Drive frequency, punch, initial throttle, current limit, and dead band adjustability make the perfect setup possible regardless of the type of motor chosen and the type of vehicle being raced.
  • Motor Power: Advanced acceleration boost and top speed timing settings are particularly useful on large tracks in applications such as 1:10 Touring Car and spec classes where ESC timing is permitted. Each setting can be used individually or together to achieve maximum power and speed. When in Standard tuning mode, timing adjustments are simplified for newer users or in applications such as 1:10 off-road where advanced settings are not required.
  • Miscellaneous Control: With the PROgrammer2, select between Forward/Brake or Forward/Brake/Reverse mode and adjust the BEC output voltage depending on the type of servo used and desired servo speed. Adjust the desired low voltage cutoff or disable it completely. The temperature at which the ESC cuts motor power due to overheating can also be adjusted or disabled. Reversing the rotation of the motor is also possible.

Reedy Blackbox 510R 2S ESC w/PROgrammer 2
My initial review is kind of neutral as it's primarily in set up and not track time yet, but after may years and some comfort zones I needed to break out of I decided to try the 510r. The programmer had issues at first, they were because of me, but partially a design flaw in my opinion. The connector cord is clearly marked positive and negative, however, the cord fits in the ESC better when putting it in wrong, it fights tremendously to go in the right way. Should be made like a receiver where it will only go in the correct way. Changes are easy, but I like a lot of drag brake as I'm sure many novices do, usually about 30%. The standard settings only allow up to 20% so you have to enter expert mode which means playing with a lot of other settings. For practice I like to run with reverse and save trips of running down to the track and reverse seems like it has issues. I bought two of these and it's consistently not always engaging with either. Sometime it takes 3-5 stabs to get reverse to engage. The expert settings are nice, a lot of options, and I'm sure with time I can use this ESC to make me faster, smoother, and happy with my choice but as I said I am fairly neutral right now and almost wishing I had gone with another brand. This ESC is also a little larger than the two other brands I have been using so it was a very tight fit which really only made it in my B6 appropriately because of the small receiver I use.
Important for me to add: Team Associated support is amazing, like nothing I have experienced in this industry before. The quickness to respond, availability, and professionalism makes me feel great about having switched all my cars over to them.

The 510R is awesome and with the programmer 2 you can adjust everything from drag brake throttle turbo boost and more. I highly recommend this 510R ESC.

This is the best ESC, I use it on Off-Road 4wd 13.5 and 6.5
Works perfectly with all motors.
It is consistent, linear.
Very easy to use.
He has all the necessary settings.
It is no coincidence that many pro drivers use it.
The size and weight is not important when you're a great ESC.
And considering the weight of a car it would not change anything.
What matters is to have the best feeling.
Thanks REEDY ASSOCIATED. Especially do not change anything. It's perfect like that
