This is the programming card for the Hobbyking YEP ESCs. This card will allow you to conveniently program your ESC settings at home or at the field. Its compact size allows it to be stored in your field box or pocket with ease.
Programming Options: • Active free-wheeling circuit mode: Freew. off/Freew. on • Govenor mode: Gov. off/Gov. store/Gov./fast Gov. • Govenor mode P-gain: 0.7/0.9/1.2/1.4/1.6/1.9 • Govenor mode I-gain: 0.02/0.03/0.05/0.06/0.08/0.09 • Startup speed: Heli slow/Heli middle/Heli fast/Plane slow/Plane middle/Plane fast • PWM frequency: 8kHz/9kHz/10kHz/12kHz/14kHz/16kHz • Start-up power: Auto 1~32%/2%/4%/8%/16%/32% • Motor timing: 0°/6°/12°/18°/24°/30° • Brake: off/Acro/Acro hard/smooth/middle/hard • Cut-off type: off/slow down/cut-off/NiMh/LiFe/LiPo • Cut-off voltage (LiFe mode): 2.2/2.3/2.4/2.5/2.6/2.7 • Cut-off voltage (LiPo mode): 2.9/3.0/3.1/3.2/3.3/3.4 • Cells: 4/5/6/7/8/9 • Cells: 10/11/12/13/14/15 • Special functions: Beep short/Rev./Stop/Full speed/F3A brake/Auto timing
*Note: This programming card only works with the Hobbyking YEP ESCs (45A/80A/100A/120A HV)
MANUAL: This is a very good ESC. If you want to program it, remember to connect the SHORT programming wire to the programming card ESC entrance. Don't try to program without programming card. You need to connect a power lipo to the ESC, and a small 2s lipo to the programming card RX entrance. This will work fine, even if the ESC is connected to the RX in the field. To get to page 2 on the prog card, just press the two buttons on the left side simultaneously.
I am not from China and I am not joking, but I used this little video to find out how to use this programming card. His fingers points it all out. No need for words. Have fun :-)
pictures say more than a thousand words. Or, in other words, this words did´*nt tell me anything cause I´*m not aware of that language. It sound asian, maybe chinese. Could sombody translate ( synchronize the video )that into english, german or netherlands? english would be best, because most people will understand it afterwords.
Hi, I have one YEP 80A on a HK500, and a card prog II. I can get a good slow start, but when running, after slowing the throttle and going up again, it rev up slowly, like a new start. Ex flying at 70%, reducing to 30%, and then up to 70% again, it takes a long time to reach power again.
Is there a way to program it to have slow start only when starting from stopped ?
Freew-off, Gov-off, break-off, startup speed-heli middle, startup power- auto
Tried all startup optins. I can get it quiker , but always the same speedup from stopped and when flying.
I have read elsewhere that the autorotation power level should not set to 0%. Otherwise, it restarts very slowly like it was standing still. However, you use 30%. This should be high enough. Did you teach the throttle range correctly? What does 30% correspond to? Does is still power the motor or is it standing still? Why do you not use the gov mode? Did you try the gov mode?
How do I set the autorotation power level ?
I have my throttle curve linear 0 to 100%. When I said 30% was to explain that i was not reducing to full stop. Actually even if i slow down only a little, it takes long time to acelerate again. It is like if autorotation is set to 100%.
I think the stop and full speed were set up ok, using the special functions, the aux cable to the rx and positioning the tx stick.
Did not try the gov mode yet.
You only define power levels at your TX - It seems that you are doing everything correct, but there must be something wrong. When not using the gov mode, any ESC is supposed to react almost momentarily to the change of power level, expect during start up. It would be completely impossible to use a throttle curve, otherwise. Slow reactions to changes of power levels are typical for the gov mode. In this mode you only change the power level during start or few times during flight. Actually, I do not know what is wrong in your case. You may try to activate and deactivate the gov mode.
How do I get onto the second page of the programming options on the card? Keeps going back to the 1st option on page one which is timing instead of going to the next page. I need to be able to set the options on the second page, it has start up and governor mode I need to change.
The fact its not listed could be due to the YEP 150A being released after this program card was listed. Unless you get someone else who has used it and is reading this, the only thing you can do is try it. It's cheap enough too, and I'd say its a 95% chance it'll work fine. Si.
No problem! If it does (or doesn't) work, make sure you come back and let us all know - so that anyone with a 150A reading this later on will know. Si. P.s. If it this was helpful, I'll be most appreciated if you award credit (it doesn't cost you anything).
@ fireball412 - Some BEC's don't need to have wire's cut a example is this one http://www.dimensionengineering.com/products/sportbe c
also I know there is no programming used to run a separated UBEC with the YEP, I just wanted to know what sequence to install it, meaning do I install it first then program the YEP or program the YEP first then install the UBEC as shown in this video at the end. I am new to using the YEP and a separate UBEC as well, I just was trying to gather as much info as I can to make the install go smoothly. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=njuxu0q5Bgs
Intuitively, I would program it first without any additional components. However, I do not see a problem programming it later. Coming back to the BEC. The SportsBEC you are revering to does not require to cut the red wire, since it performs this feature internally. The manual of the device states that the internal BEC of the ESC will not be used. This is equivalent in terms of function to any other BEC with the red wire cut. The problem starts when you want to use two BECs in parallel. This is possible but it requires care. That was my main point.
There is nothing to program. You can either use one of them or both. If you use only the external BEC remove the red wire from the plug that connects the ESC with the receiver. You may also use both in parallel. In this case you must absolutely be sure what you are doing. As far as I know the YEP ESCs have a reverse current protection of the BEC. This means the ESC can be used with an external supply that has same or higher voltage. Your external BEC must provide the same feature or you must guarantee that the voltage is always higher than the one of the internal BEC. Based on the question I assume that you have little experience with such things. Thus I recommend using only one BEC. Use the internal if the current suffice (6A is a lot) or use a strong enough external.
Plugged as descibed in manual, no beep after confirming with enter button. Programmed with 7 s lipo accu (storage voltage). After programming (no beeps...)when I plug a 4 s lipo, it recognises it with 4 beeps and runs motor. Normal ??
I use this programming card with YEP 45A ESC.
On level II, I can`t programme it. The options startup speed, startup power don`t light. First I select my option but when I start another time this selection not light.
Just bought this card for the YEP 45A ESC for use in 450 heli. However, this programming card does not support 3 cells (11.1V) LiPo battery ! I am using 3S (11.1V) battery and the smallest number of cells supported in 4. Anyway to get around this issue ?
Supports batteries 3s. For it can not be selected any of the other options (4s, 5s, ...). So leave it as is comes from manufactures. If you changed and wants to return to the default, change the option battery type (lipo to nimh, and then again nimh to lipo). Everything returned to normal. I hope I helped.
I have a skyfun jet with an aggressive setup.
The engine is a 28-36 3000KV NTM Prop Drive / 755W, use this ESC, battery 4s 2200 65c-130c and propeller 4.75 * 4.75.
With the settings I chose, as such, Motor timing: 24 or 30, PWM frequency: 8 to 10 and Start-up power: 32 readings are:
I know that pass the limit of the engine, but first, these readings are the maximum and not the permanent and then I want to model the maximum performance.
The problem is that when I'm testing it and accelerate to the maximum, the next time I cut the accelerator, the ESC starts this tune permanently: 2 beeps and 3 seconds off, 2 beeps and 3 seconds off ... and so on.
My first question is, why it happens, it will be because the engine much effort?
Second question, what ESC settings I mentioned, you guys would use and why?
Thanks for attention and sorry for the English.
Thoose beeps means undervoltage, you can try shorter cables or capacitors and such things.
I would first program the esc for the number of cells I use and change cutoff type to slowdown.
And also try to lower cutoff voltage. If that does'nt help there must be a firmware error or something..
Can someone help me with programming.
I new to helicopters and don't understand some of the details on this card . I have a HK 450 with Typhoon 2215and YEP 45a esc.
What is Timing,Deg,Gov P Gain & I Gain.
I used the following but not sure if this is right.
Cell:Left alone I have 3cell
Gov P Gain:0.9
Gov I Gain:0.03
Start up:Heli Slow
Start Power:Auto 1/32%
Motor starts slow and now does not accelerate after half stick to full?
Just set the governor to Off and don't worry about the p-gain and I-gain. They are only useful for 3D. You can set the PWM to 12khz (or leave it at 8khz), and timing to 12'. Also, set freewheeling to Off or the motor will cut off every time you decrease throttle.
HI, I have exact same combo.
Using gov. off, timing auto, 4pcnt power.
for heli of 450 size, first two left options from P-Gain and I-Gain are suggested, thats what iam using with satisfaction.
set it like that and you will be ok :)
Just set low voltage action to slow down, not to cut off so you can actually land easier,, and cut off voltage to 3.4V just not to dmg the battery
I'm using a yep 80A and I just need to pull 60A out of it with 6s 2200A 70c batteries. And as soon as I hit full trhotle it starts to choke and jerk and it won't give me full power, I'm using it in a plane with a turnigy 3640 1400kv I've alreAdy tried changing programming features but it's still the same. What can I do??? Help Any one. Please!!!!!
You can choose a low timing between 4 and 8 degrees, and you can change the PWM frequency to the lowest one. Please check the connectors between ESC and motor carefully before playing with the ESC settings, if there is a bad or cold solder point, it will surely cause this behavior of the motor. And please check the motor load, maybe the prop is a bit too big or has too much pitch. Try a battery with 4S or 5S, if possible.
Thanks!! I've already found the problem!!! I just changed the cut off voltage to the minimum and voila!!! The pmw and Timing I need them in high values for that kind of motor right??? Couse I've already burned one of those by running it at low Pwm and timing...... Or was it becouse of something else....????
i watched video how to programming my esc but i dont understand very well this guy, can you please tell me what i need and how to connect my esc (Hobbyking YEP 100A (2~6S) SBEC Brushless Speed controller) with this programming card
I never tried it, but as written on the article page, it shouldn't work with any other ESCs. This programming card lets you dial in some settings other ESCs don't even have. So, I think it doesn't work
hey guys due to my ignorance , recently i use this programe card to adjust the setting value on my helidrive 45a esc , i adjust the batt cells to 4s , and now my problem is that each time that i plug in a 3s batt , it show me 2beeps/flashes that mean under voltage identification,does anyone know how to reset my helidrive 45a to it factory settting or any way to change the battery setting to 3s , sorry to the ***r english that i have it ...
gidday, if you reset the battery type, lipo life, ie reselect what type esc will automatically sense cell count again,great esc im realhappy with mine,go to yge.de and download progcard instruction,u need to do a translation tho theyin german.hope this helps
This is a must for the Hobbyking HeliDrive ESC. It was a bit confusing at first but became very user friendly . Read the manual that is supplied in the uploaded file. I have use a few program cards before and this is very simple. Not much to look at but very funtional.
