Please help me.

How to set 'forward and break only'? (No reverse.)

I don't have Program card.

Can I??

If you have "ATV's" or "Travel Adjust" on your transmitter then reduce the throw on the reverse side of your throttle trigger until the reverse function does not work.

My transmitter is 'Turnigy 3XS' This model possible?
 Gary49 3977 points
Yes, this radio has "EPA" which means "End Point Adjustment". Go into the program on the transmitter and find the throttle EPA, both ends of the travel will show 100%, reduce the reverse/brake side down to 75% and try that, adjust it up and down a bit from there until you get the brake but no reverse, should work ok.

I have this ESC and the HKSS programming Card. I can´*t drive reverse since i have connected the programming Card first time. Which Parameter is for the " drive modes" (Forward, Forward with brake, Forward and reverse) Which Parameters are right? In the Manual of the ESC or on the programming Card? Thanks
 Ritesh 5 points
2nd parameter: 1. Forward w/o reverse 2. Forward with Pause then reverse.

1 thumbs up!
this seems as good as the 150a esc that we all love .. it has 35v caps on so it could possibly do 6s if you keep the motor under 120a its exactly the same as the 150a in size even cables and quality ...i programmed it with my 150a card and that works just fine ,seems less juddery than 150a at low throttle ,excellent!!!...have added a video of me programming it with the card on youtube under teamblackcountry rc :)

All works well apart from it not having a very smooth start, it really does a "bang" everytime you start from a stop or low speed. Will have to wait till the programme card is available to see if the starting can be made better. Why werent the program cards available when these first came on the site?

Este variador é excelente pela relação preço qualidade, comprei-o e foi montado no Traxxas E-maxx a 4s, não tem qualquer sinal de aquecimento, e responde muito bem. Para mim não quero outro. Aconselho a todos.

Looked fairly solid out of the box, huge in size, but blew as soon as I connected a battery, top and bottom boards are connected by pins and one of the fets on the top board shorted out due to solder debris inside the case contacting the bottom circuit board and up she went!
