Individual transmitter's signals for full throttle, full brake and neutral vary. You must calibrate
your ESC so that it will operate more effectively with you transmitter.

TENSHOCK
INTRODUCTION
Congratulations and thank you for purchasing Tenshock, Short Course(SC), high performance
brushless motor electronic speed control. The Tenshock SC,brushless ESC represents a latest
technologies, providing all the features and robust design qualities.
WATER & ELECTRONICS DON'T MIX!
Never allow water, moisture, or other foreign materials to get inside ESC, motor, or on the
PC Boards. Water damage will void the warranty!
NO REVERSE VOLTAGE!
Reverse battery polarity can damage ESC & void warranty. Disconnect battery immediately
if a reverse connection occurs.
DISCONNECT BATTERIES WHEN NOT IN USE
Always disconnect the battery pack from the speed control when not in use to avoid short
circuits and possible fire hazard.
2 - 4 LI-PO CELLS ONLY
Never use fewer than 2 or more than 4 LIPO cells in the vehicle's main battery pack. The
TENSHOCK EX-4 handles up to 4S LIPO input (16.8 Volts MAX).
TRANSMITTER ON FIRST
Turn on the transmitter first THEN turn on the speed control
INSULATE WIRES
Always insulate exposed wiring with heat shrink tubing or electrical tape to prevent short
circuits, which can damage ESC.
SHORT COURSE OR SMALLER
The TENSHOCK EX-4 is intended for4x4 Short Course or Smaller.
ESC/TRANSMITER CALIBRATION
IMPORTANT NOTE: Calibration is necessary for the first use of the ESC, or
whenever used with a new/different transmitter.
For users with a Futaba Transmitter, you must reverse the throttle channel
signal on your transmitter. Please refer to your Futaba instructions.
INSTRUCTION MANUAL
Green LED blinks rapidly and the motor will rings 1 second indicating full throttle measured.
Red LED blinks whiles beeping, indicating it's time to push full brake. Move throttle trigger
to full brake and wait few seconds, the ESC will blink red LED and rings 1 second indicating
full brake measure.
Orange LED blinks whiles beeping, indicating it's time for neutral. Relax trigger to neutral
(center). The ESC flash the orange LED rapidly to accept the neutral position.
ESC rings 1 second indicating neutral position measure.
After calibration ESC will rings 1 second indicating that it is armed.
From this point on, when you connect batteries and turn on the switch, the ESC will give the
initialization tone and flash, and the arming tone will ring second or two later. If the ESC is
programmed for the Auto-Lipo setting, it will beep the number of cells in you Lipo pack
between the initialization tones and the arming tones. After the arming tone plays, the ESC
will ACTIVE and will respond to the throttle application.
