I am starting to get really confused, have built Sk450 Quadcopter but i am getting a lot of confusing information about the red wire from the esc going into the KK2 board, some are saying if its UBEC remove the red wire on the 2, 3 & 4 connections some are saying no, can anybody help.
These F-30A have Linear BEC, so it is safe to keep all red wires connected. The recommendation to remove the red wires applies if you were planning to use ESCs with Switching BEC. Also if you are not sure which BEC you have, it is recommended to remove the red wires just to be on the safe side. I am flying these F-30A on Q450 with KK2.0, have all red wires connected and no problem.
Very new to the hobby and getting a bit confused about programming the ESC 30A from the different web sites i have looked at, as usual most say to download the manual on the hobbyking web site, but their are quite a lot of people saying you can program them thru the KK2, can it be done this way? Would be grateful to any suggestions.
The manual suggest stick programming from the tx which is simple and effective, as I am a planes person, quadcopters are not my thing but kk2 can be used if you have it, if not then don't buy for the intention of programming but as a control board for the quad
Ok. Make sure everything is connected, motors, esc's, multicontroller, radio stuff and power. Switch on your TX. Push throttle to full on position. Connect your battery and soon after push buttons 1 and 4 (keep pressed) on the KK2. You should see "throttle pass through" depending what version of firmware is on the KK2. Soon after you will hear a single bleep. After the beep throttle down and you should hear another bleep or sequence of bleeps, once they stop let off 1 and 4 and you should be bound. If you dont see "throttle pass through" then your using an earlier version of firmware so your esc's will sound different. get the manual for these esc's it will describe the various beeps and their functions. Switch on TX, throttle up. Hold down 1 and 4 as you connect the battery. you will hear 4 single short beeps. during these beep throttle down and you should be complete. To be honest tho I had problems using v1.2 on my KK2 board trying to do this. I also had issues trying to do them individually by passing the KK2. I flashed my KK2 with v1.6 and the esc's with SimonK 2013-05-15. After this the set up of my esc's was done in 2 mins. using the first sequence described here. Hope this helps.
Programming is easy, there is a very good video on YouTube about it. However I would just go ahead and flash them with SimonK, it will make so much difference. The programming is very simple, just make sure you remove the props before doing it.
That should work fine as mike has said you will only be pulling about 20amps
Why does it say....

When it can't??? All I get is "upload your file" !! So how do you program it?

Great little ESC and does what it says on the tin so to speak,it is just as good as the Turnigy Plush ESC in my book,i have both this one and a few plush ESC's in a few of my warbirds and this one seems to work just as well as them,so no complaints this end and if your going to try and run this little baby at it's max amps make sure you have good air flow as you would any other ESC,to be honest no one should really be pushing any ESC to it's max as you really should be going higher,so if you motor is calling for a 20amp ESC go at least another 10 amps more to be on the safe side,that way you shouldn't have any problems and you won't have to worry about your ESC if your pushing the motor at WOT most of the time. For the price we can't go wrong and i'll be buying a lot more of these when i need too as i'm always using a lot of 30amp ESC's these days.
