Programming Functions: Battery Type: Lipo /NiXX Brake: On / Off Voltage Protection: Low / Mid / High Protection mode: Reduce power / Cut off power Timing: Low / Mid / High Startup: Fast / Normal / Soft PWM Frequency: 8k / 16k Helicopter mode: Off / 5sec / 15sec (Start up delay)
Is it a good choice with a Turnigy 2204 and a 850mAh 25C battery ?
Does the cut-off automatically set for 2S or should I use a programming card ? If yes can you advice me one ?
In advance Thanks !!!
2204 has max current 7.5A.. good rule have esc with max current between 1.5-2 times more then max motor current... I'd hcoose 12A one.
As for this ESC... by default it autodetect number of battery cells on startup and then do cut-off automatically. In fact you do not need programming card and programm it manually (see manual under files tab on this page) but this is a bit tricky.
Since I reflashed mine ones with SimonK firmware (I use it on x250 quad) I forgot this programming nightmare.. Often you can occasionly enter in programming mode and thus do some unwanted changes. That's was one of the reasons why I reflashed mine ones. SimonK firmware has only throttle range calibration and do not require any programming...
the manual supplied with the ESC is a generic leaflet that like it with the model 12A!
The Model 10A was not at all the same musical sequences for parameter programming!
Is there a good user guide? it is impossible to program without knowing the musical sequences
I just bought 4 of these, 2 of them just stopped working... I was using them in an Arduino based project. Could it be that a high programmatic frequency could have killed the ESC? Is that even possible? What could be the cause and can I still fix it?
ESC has programming mode. If on power on (and some time after) control signal is not at minimum then it will not start but will go into programming mode. More likely you entering programming mode and reprogramm escape occasionly instead of controlling it.
See programming manual under files tab for programming sequences.
If you occasionly reprogrammed it ONCE.. on netx time it may not start due to numerious reasons.. like
input signal not in calibrated range, input power voltage is not in range expected for configured number of lipo cells... e/t/c/... it will beep normally but consider that programmed conditions not allowed to start.
I'd suggest you to reflash it with SimonK firmware as it do not require any programming except input signal calibration and much easier to setup
i replaced the stock esc of the micro f86 which is 6A with this esc in order to use 3s battery and it flies great i just cut the wires to save weight and will stay in the recommended flying weight specs.thank you hobbyking.
