I have tried turning off the brake and calibrating the throttle on this ESC without success. I am unable to find instructions for this particular ESC.
When I turn on the transmitter with throttle on max, then turn on the ESC, it does go into programming mode with the 1-1, 2-2, 3-3 beep sequence. But whenever I put the throttle to zero, I just hear a long beep and nothing else. How do I know what is the current setting for brake? I have done this sequence with all three of my ESC's for my tricopter, but the motors still don't start at the same transmitter throttle setting and one the esc's has a brake and not the other two. Frustrating!
I just received this esc and its wont work well it works but its Keeps the motor stuck its wont move freely when on but when u turn it off it spins and when powering on it won't play a tune it just beeps
looked at my and it does the same thing so i tried to reprogram it and then it came free its a break that makes it do that.the program is in the file tap when you hear the
bibs by the second time on the break, just put the throttle stick to idle on the required setup you'll hear some bibs that it took it then some more that means it's out of program.
You can always use a higher amp rated ESC and in fact it is much safer to you electrical system to do this. It will not overheat the motor. The only thing is you do not want to get more than you need because the esc gets heavier as you increase the amp size and you will sacrifice performance of the model.Check the max amp draw of your motor in the specs and go about 20-30% higher. Hope this helps.
Hobby Robbie is right but i don't go 15% above amp that the motor calls for if you do you can burn your motor if don't have the right propeller or geared right were the the motor wants more amps than it can handle and then over heat.
I bought one of these from a club member and love it in small foam planes. I have one in my cub. I am using four HXT 900 servos with a 18000mah 3 cell lipo pulling 15 amps at full throttle with no problems. These work great. I just ordered two more and expect the same quality with my next project.

Not sure what the point is of having a US warehouse if it takes half a year for an item to get back in stock... Still waiting on a shipment...

Still haven't gotten my shipment after four months from ordering because of the back ordered ESC. Get on the roll Hobbyking.
