Can the ESC do instant reverse, or does it require a 1-2 second pause when switching from forward to reverse? Thanks!

Crawler mode has instant reverse but it also has a drag brake.

Hi! I run it with a new 2s 1300mah battery with lipo cutt off enabled. I hear two beeps at startup but cut off doesn't work! motor stops and soon after also the servo

The two modes for the ESC are listed as "Practice" and "Climb" modes. Anyone know what that means?
 Lars 1 points
I assume, practice is normal operation Forward/Brake/Reverse and Climbing is with drag brake switched on.

i want to use my 3s 950mah lipo on this on my rockcrawler, i recon it will work as the mah is low, anyone disagree? no? good.
 henry 25 points
well this esc can only take a 2s lipo, it's not really the mah thats makes the difference it's the volts because a 2s puts out 7.4 volts and a 3s make 11.1 volt and the voltage over load would be a problem. so in short it would probably blow up.

Ok i took the plunge and bought six of these esc's to replace some others i had, all setup in various tamiya cars and buggies, i use lipo batteries so having the built in cut-off was a big selling point to me and at such a great price i would recommend them to anyone, easy to program. Ive been buying more and more from hobbyking, always great products and excellent prices. Keep them coming guys.

Install it in my old Tamiya Wild dagger truck with 2 x 540 brushed motors, and i works like a charmed, just out of the "box". The old school speed control went up in smoke. :-)

Best regards
