Its no “Mystery” where these ESCs are made, now they are available to you at HobbyKing prices.
Built with imported N-Channel mosFETs and an ultra fast Atmel MCU & heartbeat make this a high performance ESC with excellent sync capabilities. Programmable via an R/C controller.It allows you to program all functions to fit your specific needs, which makes it efficient and user friendly.
Features: Extremely low internal resistance Super smooth and accurate throttle linearity Over heat and over-load protection Auto shut down when signal is lost or radio interference becomes severe for more than 2 seconds Supports high RPM motors Power arming protection (prevents the motor from accidentally running when switched ON) New Advanced programming software
Programming features: Brake setting (we recommend using brake for only folding props applications) Battery type(LiPo or NiCd/NiMh) Low voltage cutoff setting Factory default setup restore Timing settings (to enhance ESC efficiency and smoothness) Soft acceleration start ups (for delicate gearbox and helicopter applications) Governor mode(for helicopter applications) Motor rotation( clockwise\counterclockwise) Switching frequency Low voltage cutoff type (power reduction orirnmediate shutdown)
Factory default settings: Brake: off Battery type Detect: LiPo with Automatic Cell Low voltage cutoff threshold: Medium (3.0V/65%) Timing setup: Automatic Soft Acceleration Start Up: Medium Governor mode : OFF Frequency : 8kHz Low voltage cutoff type: Reduce power
Something must be wrong with one phase . Check motor connection if all three wires are gently connected and don't have some " cooljoin " . Then check if all 3 windings of motor stator are good and don't have short circuit between them or short to motor coil former (need some ohm metter). If its all this correct , then must be problem in ESC .
Can anyone tell me, will this esc work in a 1/36 car ? Or is it just for planes only?
I want to use it in a Losi Micro Highroller to power a 10250 KV micro motor (12mm diameter, 20mm length) with a 2s 300Mah 15C lipo battery.
Many thanks in advance.
Its a ***mer. The esc has the programming functionality of reversing direction but not an actual reverse. Maybe a flash could do the trick ill have to check later it would be awesome to have a cheap car esc with added cooling
Hola Manolete, no hay manual de instrucciones, pero es bastante simple: tienes que conectar paralelamente los 3 cables - a los 3 cables del motor. Si ves que el avió*n va hacia atrá*s, solo es cambiar el cable de los lados y dejar el del medio. Saludos.
This will work without the programming card. You can even program it with your tx and rx. The programming card is just for convenience. For a quad, this will work best flashed with somonk firmware. But you will need the usbasp programmer to do that.
That's simonk actually, got a bit of typo there. It is a firmware developed by SimonK from rcgroups which replaces the default configuration of the esc into something which is optimized for multirotor use. Generally gives better performance than stock firmware.
Yes, sort of an upgrade. See if your quad is not performing according to your liking. Try the PI/D tuning first, if after the tuning and it still doesn't perform as expected, you can try the simonk firmware.
2-4s stands for 2-4 cells in SERIES. The "s" stands for "series", so you are correct. The "s" is a holdover from the early days when you couldn't buy large LiPos, so they often hooked them in parallel. So (for instance), a 2P3S battery pack would be 2 parallel sets of 3 cells in series.
Can this ESC run at constant rate in governor mode, say 80% throttle? I have a particular application which requires constant throttle regardless of what the mail TX throttle is doing. It will be controlling a second 1500kv BL which needs constant (above 70%) throttle. Thanks!
You should check it's programming card to see if it has governor mode, but if not, it couldn run at constant throttle, but you shouldn't connect it to rx then. You could use a servo tester(PRODUCT ID: HKSST) and set it to lets say 80% and keep it inside your aircraft, or maybe flash a firmware on the esc if you can program atmel microcontrollers, or if you are using multirotor, flash a firmware(also need to be custom made probably) of your flight controller board. Please award credits if this helped.
According to its user manual this ESC has governor mode. Therefore I'd like to clarify that governor mode stabilises not throttle but RPM of a motor. RPM is regulated according to input signal on ESC. So you need to have a constant signal source, it can be servo tester, or may be arduino board with a few strings of code (or may be any other generator of constant PWM signal).
You don't really need whole arduino board, maybe just take out atmega328, or some simmilar atmel chip, like attiny 85 or 45, which can also be programmed in arduino ide, but are much smaller. Yes, that will also work if you know how to program arduino/atmel/anything.
I used these for my first quad also.
I plugeed each one into the RX box one after the other and programmed them that way by listening to the beep combos to change rotation direction etc.. Can eat up a bit of time but is the only way as far as I am awhere.
Also from memmory I think they appear on the Simon K flashable list...
Hi all i ordered 4 of these esc's for my new quadcopter. This is my first ever RC project.
I assembled all stuff and it works fine with the kk2 LCD FC.
However i need to program them, it doesnt seem to work with the turnigy program card (or the card is dead..?) and i followed the instructions to program it with the receiver but it doesnt work, can this be because of the FC? How can i program the card? what do i miss in this setup to do this? thanks.
Yes its possible to flash them with simonk....
i use 12 of them and all of them flashed with simonk.
This little bugs work verrrry smoth with simonk....and auso my 3 mini quadcopter flys verry verry nice with them :-D
check the pins on :*******static.rcgroups****/forums/attachments/3/8/2 /4/5/7/a4452987-164-annotated%20esc.jpg
use simonk : bs_nfet.hex
but be sure u have the same layout like on the picture
