Hallo, bei unserem ESC ist es so das wenn er den Kontakt zur Fernbedienung verliert geht der Motor auf halbe Drehzahl und hö*rt erst wieder auf wenn der Akku leer ist. Liegt das an der Programmierung oder haben wir den falschen ESC ? Laut der Beschreibung sollte das ja nicht passieren: Automatischer Abschaltung , wenn das Signal verloren geht oder Funkstö*rungen fü*r lä*nger als 2 Sekunden. Gruß* Jona

It says in the manual that the BEC has 5.5V /4A output. Not 5A.

Hi is possible to program this ESC with use of only transmitter? I don't have programming card. thanks for help.

Yes you can stick position program it if it is not setup correctly as default Hth

How, where can i get instructions?
 KaosKane 1854 points
there is a manual in the files section. Hth
 Bostjan 201 points
there is only throttle stick calibration. So to ask again: is possible to program ESC with transmitter - full programming?
 Bostjan 201 points
Yes you are right, finally I understand this manual. It is really difficult to understand manual or to make programming. Functions can be programmed one at the time, then repeet all aver again. So definitely recommend to purchase programming card. I will purchase it in first opportunity.

Yes 6s 5000mah. Bearing feel great, shaft straight, magnets seem fine. And yes timing is default. I just tried another esc and it get hot fast and shuts down also. This is a brand new set up just bought.

I'm having issues with mine I'm running a turnigy 5055 700kv 12x6e apc prop on a keecat 65.the esc gets so hot it shuts down. Even on the ground at 1/3rd throttle get extremely hot. So I don't think it's a amp problem but I don't know. Any suggestions

Anthony, i presume you are using a 6s lipo which should give around 1400w on a 12x6 prop try a watt meter to compare figures Ive had these motors where the magnets have come loose maybe check for free rotation of the motor and for any play in the bearings,or even a slightly bent motor shaft?.also is the esc timing at default setting? Hope this helps Other than that maybe a faulty esc?

Just receive mine to go in my HK-500 GT heli.
Very easy to setup using the prog card.
What impress me the most? the smoothest RPM curve I've ever seen with an ESC.
This one is a real winner! Thank you so much HK!

Using 2 of these: First with a Turnigy SK 380 motor with a 6 cell battery and 19x10 prop on a 3DHS 68" Velox. Pulling maximum 80 amps. Over 150 flights with no issues. Second with a 4s battery, 1200 watt motor and a 16x8 prop. Pulling maximum 70 amps. Over 200 flights with no issues. I'm buying more of these!

Works perfectly with the HK600. Gets slightly warm but the heatsink is doing its job. Mounted beneath the lower frame with the motor fan cooling through the vent holes in the ESC is working perfectly.

Superb ESC, very efficient and reliable.
No programming with the LOPO batteries plug and play. Recommended.
