The HobbyKing Red Brick ESCs wont win first place for style, though they will take top points for simplicity and reliability. With a basic set of programming features these ESCs are a perfect solution for anyone looking for a basic yet robust speed controller.
The Red Brick ESCs have been engineered with heat dissipation in mind. featuring over sized Aluminium heat sinks the Red Brick ESCs are slightly larger than many ESCs in their class, however this compromise in size is aimed at assisting to eliminate the problems associated with over heating.
Specs. Max Amps: 60A Ubec: Nil Cells: 2~7s Lipoly Size: 83mm x 15mm 39mm Weight: 63g (Inc Wires)
here there is the www.link enter programming let full throtlle when plug the battery,
than you are in programming menù.
any voice is caracterized by a tipical sound like morse code.
when it play the sound corresponding to your settings need just pull down and than pull up the throttle stick to select.
the same for sub menus.
to exit programming mode just unplug the battery than replug and enjoy your flight!
Anyone know where manual is to set timing...i ran this in a 64mm t-45 edf stock motor and it cut off after less then two minutes and was very hot...i hope it is just a timing issue and not defective...file tab down below does not have any file
These can be returned to BEC by opening up the heat shrink cover (thereby completely voiding your warranty) and reconnecting the centre red wire. Not sure of amps available but I would think same as none opto BEC at 3 amps, volt out measures at 5.5v. Have tried these on a number of systems and they work perfectly. I would think they are not a true opto circuit as there does not appear to be any optical isolation in the circuit.
No, there's no programming card for this ESC - you have to program it with your transmitter. It's described in the manual, which you can find under the files tab above. Yes, this ESC does have low voltage cutoff, that's also described in the manual.
My first RedBrick arrived but I didn't have the batteries yet, so I used a 12V lead acid battery to program it. Worked fine, followed the beeps and changed what I needed, even changed it to 3s so it would work with the 12V battery.
But when the LiPo 5s came, I couldn't get the RedBrick to enter into program mode, no sound, nothing. So I put on thw 12V battery and it entered program mode. Changed to 5s, and that all worked fine... lots of power! But STILL can't reenter program mode with the 5S LiPo, always have to go to the 12 V bettery, end even then, it's not consistant. Doesn't always enter. I have to unplug and repeat sequences several times, to finnally get it to work.
Anybody have advice for better consistency?
Answering myself, but it may help you all as well. I found that my 12V battery was a little low. Recharging that gave me more consistency entering the programming mode, but I read that it seems normal that it's best to program the Red Bricks with a 12V battery or perhaps a 3s or 4s, rather than 5 or 6s
This EDC is otto optoz-insulated which doesn't allow for provision of a power supply to the receiver and any servos.
You need estes batteries todo supply the receiver.Or adapt an external converter from the motor apply to the Rx supply
ok got 2 of these, the 60 and 70 amp opto but the brake and soft start doesnt work at all with either one of them. has anyone got the brake option to work? its the brake i need for my folding prop. i can get them to reverse direction so i know im doing it right. what am i missing?
Amigo, sim precisas de um ubec para ligar ao receptor, ou entã*o ligas uma bateria de 6v ao receptor. Mas o conselho é* sempre ubec. Em relaç*ã*o a prop, tens de trocar os fios de conecç*ao( entre o motor e o esc ), o B fica igual so trocas o A pelo C- e o C- pelo A . Assim invertes a rotaç*ao do motor.
hola Helder. No se nada de electronica y quiero motorizar un Yak 54 con un motor G46, el modelo pesa unos 2.200 grs sin motor, 1.280 mm de envergadura. tengo un ubec de 5 amps pero no se como se conecta al receptor o al ces. Me podrí*as ayudar? muchas gracias.-
The Bec not only keeps the receiver running when the motor supply runs out, with this ESC it's the ONLY receiver supply. Without the bec the receiver will never work, even with a complete charge on your LiPos.
I have a question in general about theses opto escs. Can I use a Y jumper to connect the signal wire from the esc along with the external ubec wire to the reciever? Ive read that you cant take the red wire off on these because it needs it so will this ruin my ubec or esc??
Thank you, I already tried this and I know to use a ubec, the question was if I could connect the ubec and esc to a Y harness and plug that into channel 3 only and not use the bind batt plug. The wire coming off the esc and ubec wouldn't reach the receiver but with the Y harness it all worked out. The answer is yes and thanks, you learn something new every day
No you can't use it for anything you would want reverse in. It is a forward only Speed control. It is worth the few extra bux to pick up an actual car ESC they can take a harder beating and have better cooling because of the lack of air flow over the ESC. Hope this helps you out.
atinch yes it means it has no BEC but much more also OPTO is supposed to mean 'opto-coupled', where the throttle signal is coupled into the ESC via a light beam. The idea is that there is no direct electrical connection between the receiver and the business end of the ESC, therefore stopping electrical inteference from travelling down the wiring into the receiver. I hope this melps.
Finally figured it out myself. This in ESC is an "opto". I'm just new, but this means that there is no internal BEC, and so no way to power the receiver. In other words, the ESC is probably fine, I just need an external BEC now to power the receiver. Thought I'd post this in case anyone else ever has a similar problem.
Amigo, este esc é* muito robusto e para mim todos deviam funcionar assim, com bec externo. Pois da-me mais confianç*a, tanto no funcionamento como na durabilidade. Acredita que é* muito mais seguro e se tiveres um bec com aviso de bateria fraca...EXCELENTE. Evitas que espatifes o aviã*o.
No power from the ESC out to the receiver hook-up and then i contact to hk we had chat they ask me to send back but the problem was u need UBEC TO give power to receiver if i was lucky becoz i was reading the all the comments and find out my self . so i use other ESC to supply power to receiver and put this ESC to throttle and all goes wel plse hk little bit more clear write in discrption so new hobby people do not get confused . and need more better people in costumer help thanks

this is great esc its work very nice no problem in programming one thing what u get for price . well done hk just need more better costumer service. becoz few of then in chat rukies thanks again
