    What happened to www.sensehobby.com?

    I installed the ESS One Dual sound system into my TRX4 Defender and am very happy with the operation. Today I tried to change the sound file and it seems the company has disappeared. I have the software installed on my laptop but can no longer connect to the website and their sound files. A websearch for the site comes back empty also.
    Has anybody heard anything about Sense Innovation that would shed some light on this? I just talked my daughter into getting the system for her TRX4 Bronco and she won't be happy if she can't find a sound file for it.

    Thanks,
    Reinhard

    Bummer! Hopefully it's just down temporarily or the ESS sound systems will be much less cool.

    That sucks. I have an ESS One+ in my King Hauler, and was thinking of getting another for my latest non-Traxxas build.

    What really disturbs me is that the dealers still sell them online. My daughter just got hers from AMain Hobbies and doesn't know if she wants to keep it and live with the stock sounds or send it back. Right now she is looking for something comparable but hasn't found anything yet.

    Might try:
    https://www.beier-electronic.de/modellbau/home/home.php
    or
    https://www.servonaut.de/shop/en/

    German companies, but about the best in the biz. Definitely NOT Chinese garbage.

    Thanks for the links, TraxxasTyro, those systems are a little more than she wanted. Both of us are newbies to the hobby and would have trouble to put all the parts together. And we are no purists for the correct sounds of our vehicles so we can't justify the price for an advanced system like that. The ESS One Dual was perfect for our needs.

    What is a good price for a basic sound box, can a decent V8 sound be had for under $75?

    Their site was forced to be closed due to incomplete ICP registration information which is required every website in china.

    Thanks for the last 2 updates. It also looks like their FB page is not dead. Hopefully this gets sorted out soon, it will make many RC sound users very happy.

    That link doesn't work for me.

    And it's been more than 10 days since the Sense website went down.
