Had one of these in a F3A driving NTM Prop Drive 13-12 2400KV (max rated current 3.9A). Unreliable starting, rough low speed, inclined to stall, did 10krpm ok full out. Tried 261000002 (next up in series) and it works fine, the 261000001 seems a bit shabby. Tried tgy (SimonK) and wii-esc (without BEMF filter caps) in 261000001 and it works much better than stock. Might be one to skip!
hi everyone, im little confused, this one had BEC ? cause its noticed there about BEC but i see 3 2 input wires, so i need to use two power sources , one for controller and one for motor supply circuit ?
Building a mini-Quad using (4) x "1811 2000kv Micro Brushless Outrunner (10g)" motors. Trying to find the lightest weight ESCs for these motors. Looking for input from anyone if this ESC would be a good fit. Alternative I was considering was the Plush 6A. Looking for advice.
For FAN_MAN promen took litlle bit more to be solved, but now my eye is ok. I have only lost 3-4/10th of sight (instead of the eye) I mixed throttle with the 5th channel and picked up signal for the esc from that connection. everything works perfectly. tks a lot again for the help
i would reprogram this ESC with another Software. I won't use it longer as a ESC - I would use it as a lightswitch for my shipmodel. Also i won't use the BEC.
The question is - could i use this ESC on 4s then without getting problems.
I saw that their is a LM2940 voltage regulator and for this i saw that a maximum voltage from 26V is defined. I think this should then not be the problem. But this is only for the Atmega, correct? On the other parts I can't see any data, so i don't know if it's possible to use more then 3s without burning this parts...
Could anybody give a feedback if it's possible? I won't try it, if somebody is saying that this is not working.
I tried this ESC on micro sesna with C1822motor. First time It worked very well. but after few times trying, ESC sounded very small and motor did not work while throtle up. I reset ESC but same situation. Would somebody help me?
I am trying to use it to upgrade a parkzone sukhoi to 2 cells, but I am not able to set minimum and maximum.I tryed several times, but always works between slight over 50% throttle and nearly maximum throttle. Checked rx output : range 0 to 3.9 V. It work fine with standard receiver with range 0.19 to 0.4 V. any suggestion ?
You can also switch the receiver to BL Mode when you plug in the battery hold left stick (northeast) at full throttle and rudder left position.(Mod2) The receiver can not take the 5V from esc, add a small diode in the plus line. Search for RemE mod thread on rcgroups/ sukhoi.
tks a lot for the suggestions. I already started to get infos for ESC flashing, but is last suggestion works I believe it would be better. Will I have to repeate the operation on every battery connection or just once ? If once and by chance I will need to go back to pwm mode how cous that be done ? tks in advance for ye patience.
My last comment was deleted, just pull full throttle and rudder left while power on the 6400 receiver. This setting will stay unless doing it again.
The connections are from left to right: signal, plus, ground. For the throttle middle issue you can mix thr with channel5 100% and put the esc in there, so motor will start from low point.
tks for all these indications. unfortunatly I will have to be recovered in hospital today for surgery to one eye of mine and I will not have the possibility to implement them in the next 15/20 days. as soon as I will have possibility I will do that and I will let you know about results in this forum.
well i use them and from New i found 1 defective out of 4 ,so my quad is still not moving ,, but i did find a Quality control issue in HK Brand ,,so what you save ,,you loose in defects .so to say firmware would be the last thing they need.
I put one of these escs on my foamy to make it lighter than what it was which had a HK blue 12 amp esc. It does not achieve full power. I looked on here to see if there is something to do about it or if others are complaining about it and I see people are saying you need to set throttle. But I don't see the instructions on how to do that. Can somebody help me out?
Sorry, Hobbyking censors links. I just uploaded the 20A version manual to the "files" tab, I don't know if tou can download it, gives me a 404. WTF hobbyking, fix this or at least give manuals to your own products.
I downloaded the manual, but I don't find where it explains how to set throttle range. Anyway, pushing throttle stick high, then powering on the ESC and after 2 sec pulling throttle stick low seems to do it. Is that correct ?
That's right.Set throttle to full, connect the lipo, pull the throttle during the first four beeps and wait a second for the longer beep indicating that the throttle range is saved, and you're good to go.
You program it based on the beeps (the esc beeps the motor to say what option you are in) and you choose moving throttle stick up and down, there are instructions in the manual that comes with. Start with throttle high for arround 10s and it will enter in programming mode. It is realy easy to do, but takes some time because you need to wait for the beeps.
Bec's are usually built into the esc's. If you go higher than 4s (14.4v) 3 or more servos then a ubec is needed to power the servos. It reduces the power from the vs battery to power the servos. So you only need a UBEC if you are using more than 4s or 3 or more servos. Hope that helps.
Hallo Rank, um die MOtorenrichtung zu ä*ndern musst d u einfach 2 der 3 Motorenkabel miteinander tauschen so wie bei jedem anderen Brushless Regler. Wenn du die INfo magst dann klicke bitte den Button fü*r den Bonus... danke dir
Put off the shrinking tube and reduce wiring - if you look at the dimensions, there's not much to save weight by the electronics PCB-wise. I wonder, why U-BEC for 2S! Reducing output voltage to 4.2V is simple, if you don't need high accuracy.
I bought this but it cannot start the Hextronic 5g 2000kv motor (code HXM1400-2000) with GWS propellers 4025, 4540, 5030.
The propeller move a little in a very jerky way, then after 2-3 seconds it stops completely.
I used the default settings and also put the "angle of attack" at high angle as per the manual.
Same result for both.
Does it mean it's defective ? Should I return it or there is a fix ?
if the motor just "vibrates" and wont start, its usualy because one of three wires leading to the motor is loose or broken. the motor is running on two phases instead of three, so check the connections
Thanks, but I checked the wires and they're ok.
The motor starts very well without a propeller.
With a GWS 4025, it starts about 1 in 4 times. Once it starts, it works very well even at the full throttle.
With a GWS 4540, it starts about 1 in 10 times. Again, once it starts, it works well.
With a GWS 5030, I never managed to make it start, in 20 tries or so.
So, it seems that the bigger the propeller, the more difficult the start is.
Any idea what could fix it ?
well, thats not good. I dont know if its posible to set timing to high or set number of poles. Im using turnigy plush with that particular motor with no issues. Try to check manual if there is posible to change those two settings. good luck
ESC was locked when I received it, throttle range must be set before usage. BEC output is 4.98V unloaded (and weaker than Plush 6A BEC per specs).
It's a bit bigger and heavier than the Plush 6A, it's also a few cents more expensive (Plush 6A can be purchased here for $6.56 even without buddycode).
I tested it with an unloaded C1818 motor, it's OK but less smooth than Plush 6A. Response is not linear on low speeds. Overall it's OK but I don't see any reason to use it over Plush 6A. I purchased it because Plush 6A was out of stock, I'll be more patient next time.
Difficult to find a manual for this controller,but noticed that the setup tones are exactly the same as this esc...Hobby King 20A ESC 3A UBEC..PRODUCT ID: F-20A....The pdf instructions are under the files tab.
The 6a esc therefore has lots of programming functions and infact works really well in the turnigy micro quad.
