Hi people.... I bought this esc and the turnigy 1220 brushless.... I have fitted it
To one of my mini z cars and it works good except for take off...
Instead of rocketing off it sits there clicking and gittering... then if you give it a
Tiny push its of like a bullet. .. I have the cut off set to 1.2v ...and the car is
Using nimh 4.8v.... any help would be awesome...
did anyone else receive this ESC with the aircraft/helicopter manual ?
for me it does not matter, i know how to operate it, i bought the programming card as well... but for a beginner... you think you buy a car esc, it's listed in the "cars and parts / speed controllers" section ... and then you see the manual for aircraft esc ... kinda confusing i.m.o.
Same here... First I thought I bought the wrong item but I checked and everything was ok, then i thought HK sent me the wrong item but after I tested it works like a normal esc for a car. A bit confusing...
Can someone explain to an airplane guy how you would use this to reverse thrust a prop?
I realize their are variable pitch props but the application I have in mind is actually for moving a boom in an exhibit at a museum.
I looked up the specs and found the total wattage, but this is a maximum figure and would never be a constant current draw. For a few dollars more there are a number of other choices, so unless you are tight for space I would go with a higher rated ESC.
Hello, I have just received this ESC in the mail. It mostly works great, though I can not enter programming mode. I have tried with 2 different radios and receivers, 1 surface setup and 1 air setup. I don't have a programming card but want to turn the drag brake to 0%. It is just set too high right now for my micro T. as soon as i let off the throttle, the wheels lock up and it loops out. Thanks.
Hola Martin, este ESC sirve para carros, debes usar un receptor y un transmisor para carros tambien, en la seccion cars and parts y luego en pistol radios puedes encontrar transmisores y receptores de 3 canales estos te iran muy bien con este ESC.
Espera haya sido de ayuda.
Segun el manual del ESC dice que se requiere LED programing card y la encontre en el sihuiente www.link usa para ESC de carros desde 6A hasta 150A pero mucha gente dice que no funciona con sus ESC :S
parece que no salio el link... bueno busca en speed controllers/programming cards/hobby king programming card for ESC.
tambien puedes intentarlo manualmente en la tab de files aparece el manual y dice como programarlo sin tarjeta.... suerte!
The servo's are not connected to the ESC,you plug the servo's directly into your receiver.The ESC plugs into the throttle channel of your receiver and reference the 3 wires it does not matter initially as it is a 3 phase type motor.Plug all 3 wires to the motor,then run the motor up and watch which direction it runs,if it runs backwards then change any 2 MOTOR wires and then it will run in the opposite direction.
Note really: This ESC has 3 mode: 1) Forward Brake 2)Forward Backward Brake, but from forward to backwards (and vice versa) it will slow down making a braking action. 3)Forward Backward Brake , but stick must return neutral after brake before change direction, so push pull neutral pull for change from fwd to rew
you could use the trackstar 18a esc for crawling. you can program it to do a few different brake/reverse functions. And yes Juan, it can be used for a micro t, if you have a brushless motor. To complete the upgrade, you may also need tx/rx, and a steering servo, if you have the model with a 4 wire servo.
Thanks for the quick reply. Exactly what i was thinking, not with a linear BEC. Please let me know, im planing to upgrade a Losi 1/36 to brushless for the kids and the have to go slow at the beginning *-)
It works fine in my 1/36 Losi micro High Roller, with 2s, so I ordered another one for my 1/36 Losi Micro T. I used the Turnigy 1220 Brushless Inrunner Motor 10300kv which is meant for 1s, but it runs OK with this ESC on 2S. Will see for how long, but I have 10 batteries through it.
agreed. use 2s lipo with 1220 10500kv and get the trackstar 18a esc which can be programmed for reduced throttle range. Or you could get the HK-310 3 Channel 2.4ghz FHSS Ground Radio, which can also be programmed to limit throttle. Just keep your slipper clutch loose. Its easy to over tighten it on those cars, For more torque at slower speeds, use the turnigy 1230 4500kv, although for the 1/36th scale it might be a little bulky. It fits my micro SCT.
As far as I understand the instructions, the 10A version can only be programmed with a prog. card. I was trying to program it by remote, but no success.
The ESC is perfect for weapon control in 1lb antweight combat Robot.
I use it for the drum of Saifu (28-22 kv1900 outrunner running on 3S) and it worked right out of the packet.....no programming was necessary. Its small, lightweight and its easy to change the signal leads to the micro ones if desired.

I can confirm that this esc does work on 3S, even on the heatshrink is says, "DC:3V-13V" I have used it extensively in my 1/24 losi truggy along with the turnigy 4500kv and esc is warm after 15minute runs. As far as I can tell it is not programmable via the transmitter, however, I have successfully programmed it with the "Hobby King Programming Card For Car ESC". It is basically a generic HobbyWing 10A flight ESC reflashed for Car use and those are all capable of 3S so this is the same.

Absolute garbage, could not keep a constant speed or a progressive start. Stuttery and terrible. Working examples may be better but mine was terrible. 1 star all round.
ne fonctionne pas, il manque une phase ! le moteur oscille mais ne tourne pas , j'ai la carte de prog et 2 vraiateurs, meme constat, essayé en 2s sur un moteur 2204. Comment faire maintenant ? le renvoyer et me ruiner en port ? ou faire confiance a mon detaillant local qui lui assure le service au moins...

j'ai refait une soudure et l'esc fonctionne mais de quelle façon ! toute la puissance passe sur 20pcnt de la course ! aucune linearité, c'est de la m.. meme en jouant sur la courbe de gaz, c'est toujours aussi brutal. De plus le moteur tourne irregulierement.
j'ai la carte de programmation qui elle fonctionne bien mais le resultat est desastreux.
I weld one wire and esc works but how! the power is on 20pcnt of the range no linearity .. even playing on the throttle curve is always brutal. In addition the engine runs irregularly.
I have the programming card that it works well but the result is disastrous.
