I tried to birdie 70A opto esc, and I have tried esc by using ubec or external battery connected to the motor as well as the rx, but the results did not beep at all when connected 3s lipo. is there any solution for me. thanks
I tried to connect this esc with an orange 6 channel rx, but rx seems not to get power when connecting esc with a 3s 1800 lipo (rx control light not on). instead esc has a three beep tone repeating 10 times. Rx works fine with other esc (20A). Any ideas how I get this to work? Thanks
So I got two of these, and I cant get them to even power up and give me a beep. Ive tried the motors out with other ESC's and they work perfectly, and also the RX and TX. I get nothing. Here is how I have been doing it, I plug in the ESC to the RX, then connect the 4.8v Battery to RX, then power up the ESC, no beep, nothing. any ideas??
If you're using a separate BEC for the RX, make sure that it is switched on. Try hooking up a servo or two to the RX as well and see if they get power. Not sure if the ESC needs at least 5V to run or not. If you're using just a battery instead of a BEC to power the RX that could be the issue. Don't forget to give credit if my suggestions fix your problem.
Well, sure enough, 4.8V is not enough for the ESC to power up. I put a freshly charged RX battery(5.5v) and it works great. Thanks for your help. Also, It is required to start the ESC with the throttle all the way up, or it doesnt start beeping, but now it works great!
Running 6 cell 3300 at 53 amps on a Tacon Bigfoot 32 with a 10"x10" APCE.
The plane has lots of cooling and the Birdie 60 comes down barely warm at 1200 watts. Manually set the voltage cutoff and brake. Would buy another without a second thought.
