Anyone understand the beeps of esc
« on: July 28, 2013, 08:36:15 PM »

i have a pile of esc
 
i bought them nearly 2 years ago when i was new to the hobby, yes they are cheapo's from hongkong
 
20a wrapped in yellow shrink wrap....i thought id try them and see if they work, its taken this long to get a brushless motor to test them.
 
basicaly nothing happens apart from a series of peeps and beeps......
 
any help greatly appreciated
 
Chris

If you have just got the esc connected to a motor and battery, it will beep for ever more. you need to connect it to a Rx and Tx to start with  :-))  also make sure the esc has BEC, if not fit a battery to the Rx  :-))

Cheers Alan
 
I had the tx and rx set up ready.....it did random amount of beeps.....i have no idea if it has a bec
 
it does move the motor by jittering......I know traditionaly you have to tune in the esc...by maybe turnig on tx pushing throttle up wait for beeps release...and bingo etc
 
that aint working at the moment, cant get sequence of beeps

Hi Chris,

Try these instructions:

I've been able to program all of my Chinese 'El Cheapo's' with it.

Regards, Jan.
