I'm trying to turn off the brake. So, if I enter programming mode is the break setting the "default" which is off or is it whatever the last setting was. If it's the default, then I would do nothing with the throttle stick, correct?
 Bobo22 144 points
It is the last setting. Moving the throttle stick toggles the brake on/off each time you enter programming mode. If you wait for the 4th line of beeps in the programming mode and then move your throttle stick that will restore everything to default settings, which would also set the brake to off.

Actually, my doc says the brake setting is the first* but, doing a reset to defaults would work, I would, however go back and change other options again...I'd prefer just to be able to change or toggle the brake setting alone. But, thanks for the reply.

All programmable items are beeped in loop once you are in programming mode. First one is the brake setting. Very easy to turn off or on alone without changing anything else. Once you move your throttle stick down it will change whatever the last settings is (on to off, or off to on), and it will exit programming mode automatically. You would have to enter programming again if you want to program other items. Or if you wait till you get to the forth line of items in the programming mode you can reset everything at once to factory defaults. Thanks

Hi, im looking for a ESC for the Turnigy D2826-6 2200kv motor. i want to use it on a fixed wing plane i already have a 1300mah 2 cell 7.4V Lipo. Will this work? if anyone can recommend a good ESC for the sub £*15 range, it would be a great help :)
 Bobo22 144 points
Hello Robert, This ESC should work fine for you. It is a great choice. Another good option in this price range would be the Turnigy Plush ESC.

great esc but, I have 2 esc that I can't program, does not matter using TX stick or progamming card either of them saving the config, which making it useless as the Soft Acceleration Start Up stuck at Medium I need to be none

I want to use Multistar 5010 274KV motor. than How can choose ESC? Please Help me.

Look at "Max Amps" on the motor and select an ESC that is 10-25% greater. In this case the Max amps is 28 so I would select a 35 or 40 Amp ESC. For example the Turnigy MultiStar 40A V2 Slim BLHeli Multi-Rotor Brushless OPTO should work.

Every motor I've tried with this ESC runs VERY hot. Also my battery time is shorter. You can to better in this price range.

Wow, I am glad I bought this when I did! This is a fantastic speed control. I hooked it up to my new HK 450MT project and have had no problems. I haven't gotten the chance to really load it up yet, but it runs cool in hovering (test flights).

I deducted one star because it comes with no instructions. While you can build the HK 450 with T-Rex instructions, I wouldn't attempt programming the ESC with them!

Thanks again, HK!
