Basic Settings Help

Post  Ads on Thu Jan 06, 2011 1:27 pm

i have put in a new 60amp speedy in.
i set the throttle/neutral/reverse points as per instructions. when i finish it just goes to full throttle forward(i swapped 2 wires over on motor-esc connection, it just goes full throttle in reverse instead) i can trim it out but then i have no throttle or reverse? Shocked
i am using fully charged lipo & fresh batteries in the transmitter.

the only thing i can think of is that i may be doing the process the wrong way some how. i have tried a few different ways to no avail.

hoping someone can point out the obvious thing i am missing but cant see cause i been looking at this thing for waaay to long Evil or Very Mad haha

I'll give up the run thru, by the sounds of things somthing has gone awry.
(sorry if this seems dumbed down, but this is a serious blow by blow of how i do it)

step 1: make sure all your trims are neutral and travel is 100% on your radio. Plug in the motor.
Prop the car up and make sure it cant do a run away on ya.

step 2: make sure the esc is off. Plug in batt. hold down programming button then turn on the esc.
esc should be going 'beep' about once a second & a red light should be flashing in time with the beep.

Step 3: without touching the radio, press the programming button once. The esc should beep & flash green once.

Step 4: pull back on the throttle, press button again. esc should beep and flash green twice.

Step 5: push forward into reverse and then press the button again. Esc should beep and flash green 3 times.

Leave the esc for at least 10-20seconds then see if that fixes it.
