I’m not an expert with these but I was able to do some research…based on the steps I found for calibrating these ESCs, you’re supposed to push the throttle all the way up when before you power on the ESC. Could that be the issue? (Again…I’m more of an RTF guy so this is a bit out of my comfort zone…sorry if I’m way off base.)
F. Programming via Transmitter
Step 1: Enter program mode
Switch the transmitter on→Pull the throttle stick to the top position→Switch the ESC on, wait 2 seconds, you will hear two “beep” sounds,
which denotes that Max. throttle has been confirmed→Hold the throttle stick at the top position, and then wait 2 seconds until you hear tune“♪
123 ♪ 123”, that means you have entered the transmitter programming mode.
Step 2: Select program parameters
Hold the throttle stick on top position, there’re 7 parameters can be set by using your transmitter. You would hear 7 different indicating sounds
which correspond to 7 different parameters. Pull the throttle stick to the bottom position (full Off throttle) within 2 seconds after you hear the
correspondent sound will brings you to the correspondent parameter setting status. The indicating sounds will repeat in turn as follow.
1. “beep-” (a short sound) which indicates the Brake Type
2. “beep-beep-” (two short sounds) which indicates the Timing Mode
3. “beep-beep-beep-” (three short sounds) which indicates the Start Force
4. “beep-beep-beep-beep-” (four short sounds) which indicates the Curve Mode
5. “beep—–” (a long sound) which indicates the Control Frequency
6. “beep—–beep-” (a long sound and a short) which indicates the Low-voltage Protection
7. “beep—–beep-beep-” (a long sound and two short) which indicates the Cutoff Mode
8. “beep—–beep-beep-beep-” (a long sound and three short) which indicates the Rotation Direction
Step 3: Select program values
After entering parameter setting status, hold the throttle stick on the bottom position, you will be led to the repeat selection of that parameter
setting status. Each sound likes 4 short sounds and one long sound (1 long sound=5short sounds), and by that analogy. After some sound, pull the
throttle stick to the top position in 2 seconds, after you hear a tune “♪321 ♪3 2 1”, which means the correspondent value has been chosen and
saved. Hold the stick on the top position, return to the second step and continue programming.
Step 4: Exit program
Pull the throttle stick to the bottom position within 2 seconds and hold on after saving parameters, until you hear a tune “beep—- beep- beepbeep- ♪ 1 2 3”. Set the Min. Throttle at this moment and exit program and operate as normal.(beep—-means Loading parameter. beep- beepbeep-means numbers of cells and ♪1 2 3 means ready. )
Restore Factory settings
To restore Factory settings, pull the throttle stick to the bottom position (full Off throttle ) within 1s after entering program mode (Step 1)→Pull
the throttle stick to the top position within 2s, then you will hear a tune, which means that the factory settings have been restored. Pull the
throttle stick to the bottom position within 2s, the ESC is ready with factory settings.
If the Bidiretional mode is chosen, the Minimum Throttle actually means Middle Throttle position. Factory settings can be restored under
