I saw this in one of the HobbyKing videos, If you are doing a motor/prop test you can just plug your ESC throttle lead into the output side of this unit and use the knob to slowly crank up the speed to do your prop test. It works really slick! This unit is some of the best money I have spent here, works great!
A very dumb question. Are the negative (-) of the output and the negative of the input (-) grounded to a same potential ? Just wondering to know if i can use the 5V output of my PSU to feed the input, instead of using the UBEC, and using the same PSU, with the 12V, which I use to feed the ESC motor. Or else, I'd use a separate PSU.
Ok, it seems simpler than i thought, so i do not need 2 PSUs ( 1 in, 1 out) when plugging the esc motor, do I ? And if all 3 points are running off the rail, it shouldn't matter whether i plug the esc on the input side or on the output side ? So far I tried plugging the ESC motor in the output side, and it seemed to be enough to power everything, is that correct ? No harm done ?
Yeas absolutely OK to connect BATTERY to ESC, ESC - Signal to output side of tester. You now have a standalone motor controller. WARNING be careful with the random function when testing a motor. Don't forget your sunglasses, those LEDs are a killer.
2. Neutral which will take your servo to it's neutral setting automatically
3. Auto which continuously cycles the servo limit to limit.
Will it replace your $100 servo tester....probably not but for everyday use it's great.
You won't be disappointed in this one.

Useful little unit, has three modes identified by three blue LEDs that will have you seeing spots they are so bright. Neutral setting is useful for getting your servo horns centered without trial and error and the third option cycles the servo continuously. A few minutes will help seat and quiet noisy gears in new servos.

Nice, simple and does the job. Has 3 servo outputs that all get the SAME signal.
Has three modes: 1. Manual - set position by adjusting knob. Good for cheking how servo controls surfaces. Just be aware, that some radios/receiveirs can issue a wider travel range, so don't rely on this tester to show your servo's maximum travel. 2. Center - for aligning servo horns. 3. Auto - scrolls servo forth and back at constant speed. One period ~= 2 seconds.
Super Servotester,stabieles alugehause,mit 3 servoanschluessen paralell,einem jr stromeingang mit 4,5-6,0 volt. es besitzt 3 automatische funktionen 1-neutral-servo mitte 2-automatik-servo bewegt sich vom re.zum li. anschlag 3-manual-servo wird ueber ein poti bewegt. fazit und praedikat sehr empfehlenswert... ciao Piperpaule www.mfc-thiede-vallstedt.de bis bald.....

A very good Item for a low price. The neutral setting is the same as on my MPX-transmitter. It is very good to adjust your servo before installing in the model. The blue LEDs, however, are much to light. I have paste over them with a strip of tape. Then it is ok.
