1. Doing it wrong - yes I would have agreed with you if I was just someone reading this, but there is no way for me to do this wrong. You see, the ESC and motor comes from the same company as a kit, wires matching and everything, and I haven't done anything to it that can possiby make it possible to do this wrong. The only thing that is possible is that the setup was for a particular brand of receiver, and will require adjustment for my brand. Nothing unusual about that.
2. Just change the direction of the motor - umm, say what? That would mean the car would go backwards when I am trying to go forward
im not really into ssb's either, but suckfizzle is the bomb.
and timbo, have you tried the mentelle zinfadel - it's a red by the way, not a pink
try it..... also try the mr. riggs shiraz viognier.
lima's recommendation is good. parker cab's are good.
anyway, wine, like food, subjective to taste.
This morning while I was waiting for OllieWAY to finish his breakie, I decided to open the bag that contained the ESC manual. Flicked trough it, boring boring boring, stuff I know already, then I get to the trouble shooting section at the end. Now I didn't read it carefully at this point as OllieWAY and I were late for a birthday party, but it says that if you are running a Futaba radio, you need to reverse the throttle setting. Hmm, I am running a Futaba...
Ok I am home. Read the trouble shooting section in the manual again and this is what it says:
Problem: My Castle ESC may or may not arm, but it will not calibrate to
my t ransmitter.
Solution: Most calibration issues can be solved by changing settings on the transmitter. Make
sure you have both your throttle and brake endpoints (called EPA or ATV on your radio) on the
throttle channel out to between 100 to 120%. Make sure if you have a Futaba or Futaba made
transmitter to have the throttle channel set to the reversed position.
And guess what? It works.
So Matty, want a proof of life video?
