ne fonctionne pas! ou le renvoyer?
 Christ 728 points
Bonjour Dabiré*
si tu es certain qu'il ne fonctionne pas, le seul endroit pour le renvoyer c'est ta poubelle :-( les frais d'envoie seront plus cher que la valeur.
de toute faç*on avant de le renvoyer il faut prendre contact avec le SAV qui autorisera ou pas le renvoi. Ca prend du temps mais parfois ç*a fmarche et tu reç*ois le remboursement de ton produit.
A essayer donc mais le delai es souvent de 2 à* 3 mois avent une dé*cisioN. C'est le revers de la mé*daille du "pas cher" Personellement je n'ai jamais eu de produit dé*fectueux.
Donc fais toi aider avant de dé*creter que "fonctionne pas"
Bonne chance.

bonjour Dabiré*,
as tu alimente ton circuit? Ce ESC ne contient pas de BEC donc tu dois fournir une alimentation au recepteur.
Bonne chance

I have bought HOBBY KING RED BRICK ESC(OPTO).My doubt is that is there any need of UBEC link for that or not .

It can be programmed for the motor go forward and backward?
 Samuel 52 points
No, it can't. But what you can do is swap two of the plugs and the motor will spin in the opposite direction.

Hobbyking you are kidding us! This ESC doesn't have any opto, after opening i realized you just cut the red wire shorter and didn't connect it. That's even dangerous because the wire is in the hot glue and just touch the circuit board, it could do some short circuit with UBEC powering RX... Some time it sucks really!
 rcozstyle 342 points
They most likely disconnected the red wire because the bec would not like anything over 3s.
 rcozstyle 342 points
I just thought of something else, opto simply means that the esc will not supply the rx with power.

Where did you get the idea it wont like anything over 3S?.... Spec is 2S to 7S! If anything it would be fine for 45 Amps constant on 4S with burst headroom!

11-23-2011, installed in a Horizon T-28 with a Power 10 motor, and Castle 10A UBEC. Power is from three new, charged, 3S, 20C, 2200 Zippy batteries. Works just "OK"; the Red Brick 50A shuts down immediately on some batteries and not others. The problem is IT IS VERY DIFFICULT TO CHECK THE DEFAULT SETTINGS IN THE ESC. It is VERY hard to interpret programming steps in the one page of instuctions. These need to be rewritten.

Es exactamente el mismo variador que el birdie 50A, solo cambian los fets y que este no tiene bec, funciona bastante bien y aguanta mas corriente que el birdie.

Great little units! This is a tough little ESC. The name fits the brick. Tough as a brick. And performs like it should! Rock solid.
