Turnigy Multifunction LCD Program Box for Brushless ESC
This Multifunction Program Box is used to set the programmable parameters of brushless ESC, it has a 16*2 characters LCD (Liquid Crystal Display) to get a friendly user interface, so you can set the programmable parameters very easily using the box or via your PC. It is pocket-sized, so you can bring it to the racing or flying field conveniently.
The Turnigy Multifunction LCD Program Box has 3 modes and is really user friendly, the functions are as follows;
1. Works as an individual device to the ESC, the option of each parameter is displayed on the LCD screen.
2. Works as a USB adaptor to link the ESC with a PC to update the ESC firmware or set the ESC (see files section for link to download).
3. Works as a lipo battery voltmeter to measure the voltage of the whole battery pack or each individual cell.
This program card is suitable for the following ESCs:
Turnigy Trackstar(EZRUN) Series Car ESC
Turnigy K-Force Series Helicopter/Aircraft ESC

Advertised as related item to the HW Platinum V3, but works not with that ESC. Only as a USB adaptor. Bad information on what this box is able to do. No softwareupgrade possible. Wasted money.Worst product ever...
First: I connected this program box to my HW 50A V3 ESC and got the message "Please upgrade software".
Second: Connected the program box to the pc and got the error "current version can not be updated. This means that it is "firmware locked" by HW.
So this, can't be used as a field programmer and can't be updated with last firmware. It's a copy of the HW program box, that actually works. Hobbyking throw this one at the bin and start selling the original product. This one is a total waste of money.Changes lots of stuff on your Turnigy Speed ControllerThis unit was a pretty decent battery checker. I liked the read out of each cell but other then that, it was inadequate for what i needed it for. Would have been nice to have it be a little open sourced, so you could connect to computer and program any ESCs.Nice and useful tool for programming the Hobbywing Platinum Pro V3 ESC`s with your PC. If connecting the ESC, the box only says "please update software". Got the Hobbywing USB Link Software V 3.43 and it works, but the box can`t be updated. But you can program your Platinum V3 ESC when the box is connected to your PC with this software. This box seems to be a little out-dated. A warning: the USB Linker Software 3.3 from the "FILES" tab in the international warehouse is out-dated and can crash on Windows 7 64 Bit, forcing you to restart your PC. Get the V 3.43 from the Hobbywing website, it works stable. The voltage check function works well if you want to know if your lipo battery was used or fresh charged, but the readings shows more difference than a multimeter. A pack charged and precise balanced with the iCharger 106B - Plus shows a difference of 0,04 - 0,06 volt at the balancer port. Checking with a multimeter, the difference is only 0,01 volt if there is any difference.
