Introduction
Complexity and sophistication is common in the RC world, but sometimes all
you really want is a vehicle that offers core Monster Truck qualities. A sturdy
RC off-roader that provides the speed and excitement you desire, the durability
to take the rough with the smooth and the handling to keep you in control
over all manner of uncompromising terrain. If you’re new to RC bashing, you
might also want something that’s easy to maintain and upgrade as your skills
increase. The Conquest 10ST XB is just such a truck. It is, in short, a 2WD,
all-weather, all-terrain, all-rounder that’s as happy backyard bashing as it is

AVOID GETTING BURNED.
Features of your ESC
• Waterproof and dustproof. The ESC can work underwater for a short time.
• Specially designed for RC cars and trucks, with excellent start-up,
acceleration and linearity features.
• Automatic throttle range calibration - easy to use!
• Low Voltage Cut-off (LVC) protection for LiPo or NiMH battery.
• Overheat protection.
• Throttle signal loss protection.
• Motor blocked protection.
• Easily programmed with jumpers.
Your ESC has been pre-installed at the factory but before using your
vehicle each time it is good to double check the wiring for damage or loose
connections to ensure everything is in working order before. Refer to the
diagram below to check the connections of your electronics system.
Throttle Range Calibration
Unlike other systems that require manual setup, your Helion Brushed ESC
features automatic calibration. However, for this feature to function properly
you need to ensure the throttle channel of the transmitter (CH.2) is set to N
(normal). Please also set the transmitter’s throttle channel D/R, EPA and ATL
to 100% and set the throttle trim to 0. For non computer transmitters, turn
the D/R, EPA and ATL dials to their maximum travel and the trim to its neutral
position. 13
1. Connect a fully charged battery.
2. Turn the transmitter ON first the ESC, noting that the transmitter should always
be ON if the ESC is ON.
3. Keep the throttle stick at its neutral position, wait for 3 seconds to let the ESC
perform its self test and automatic throttle calibration.
4. When the ESC is ready to run, a long beep will sound.
5. This calibration will be performed every time the ESC is powered on. If you are
touching the trigger during this process the ESC will not calibrate or function,
simply release the trigger and wait for the audible chime.
6. Check the ESC operation to ensure you have full throttle and brake before
driving the vehicle.
Note that you’ll need to calibrate the throttle range again when using a new
transmitter or when changing the settings of the neutral position of the throttle
channel, D/R, ATV, ATL or EPA. If this is not carried out the ESC may not work properly.
Understanding the LED Status Light and Alert Tones
Your Helion 40A ESC is programmed to communicate with you to let you know its
status.
LED in normal use
• If the throttle trigger is in the neutral range the LED will be off.
• The red LED blinks when the car is running forward, backward or braking.
• The red LED lights solid when the throttle trigger is moved to the full throttle or
full reverse position.
14
Alert tones
1 Short Beep: The battery type is set to NiMH / NiCd.
2 Short Beeps: The battery type is set to 2S LiPo.
3 Short Beeps: The battery type is set to 3S LiPo.
1 Long Beep: Self test and throttle calibration is complete / the ESC is ready
to run.
Programming your ESC
Your Helion 40A brushed ESC is a programmable unit whose direction and
battery type can be adjusted by altering the position of the jumper plugs. The
plugs are best repositioned using tweezers in conjunction with the following
diagram.
Low Voltage Cut-off (LVC) Protection
Please note the following with regard to the pre-programmed LVC settings.
5 - 9 NiMH cells
Output reduces to 50% at 4.5V
Output cuts off at 4.0V (no recovery)
2S LiPo
Output reduces to 50% at 6.5V
Output cuts off at 6.0V (no recovery)
3S LiPo
Output reduces to 50% at 9.75V
Output cuts off at 12V (no recovery)
Overheat Protection
When the internal temperature of the ESC is higher than 100°C or 212°F
for a period of 5 seconds the ESC will first reduce and then cut off the output
power. When the car stops the red LED blinks to indicate that the overheat
protection has been activated. When the ESC cools to 80°C or 176°F the
output power will recover and normal control will resume.
15
Signal Loss Protection
If the throttle signal is lost for 0.1 seconds the ESC will cut the output power
and the car will stop.

Adjusting and Tuning Your Vehicle
The Conquest 10ST XB has been engineered with some available tuning
options listed here for reference. The default configuration has been chosen
to provide what we feel is the most enjoyable experience for most operating
conditions. However we do encourage experimentation and testing as that’s
where the real fun begins!
Ride Height Adjustment
It is ideal to have the drive shafts above level but still allow the shocks to
extend when you lift the vehicle while the vehicle is sitting on a flat surface
with the body installed. Use the threaded adjustment collars to achieve the
desired ride height.
• Lowering the collar will raise the ride height of the vehicle and if done
excessively may decrease stability.
• Raising the collar will lower the ride height and may cause the chassis to
drag on the ground.
Upper Shock Position
There are multiple shock installation locations for the top mounting location
of the shock towers. The default positions have been chosen as a good
starting point. Moving the shock mounting location inward will result in a
slightly less responsive feel on the front or rear of the vehicle but it will be a
little more stable. Moving the shock mounting location outward will make the
truck more responsive but less stable in some conditions.
Lower Shock Position
There are multiple shock installation locations for the lower mounting
location of the shocks in the suspension arm. The default location is ideal for
the included shock length. However you can play a little.
• Moving the shocks to the inside location will result in a slightly more
responsive feel on the front or rear of the vehicle but become a little less
stable. This change will also increase the vehicle’s articulation and you
will notice more body roll. Always check and adjust, if necessary, the ride
height of your vehicle after moving the shock mounting locations.
Battery Mounting
Your vehicle comes equipped with a default mount setting for a 6-Cell NiMH
battery. It is also possible to fit a 2S LiPo battery (we highly recommend hard
cased batteries that resist wear). Ensure the pack is firmly secured with the
hook and loop tape to keep it from changing position in the battery tray.
17
General Care
• Always use clean, dry cloth or soft bristle brush to clean your equipment.
• Never use chemical cleansers to avoid damage to the sensitive
electronics and plastics.
Maintenance
We want you to enjoy your product to its fullest potential. For this to happen
it is important to keep your product clean and properly maintained. Lack
of cleaning and maintenance can cause component failure. For best and
continued performance from your product it is recommended to briefly
inspect your product for damage every few uses. Typically, a good time to
do this is when changing the battery in your vehicle or while it is charging.
If a problem is discovered, stop use immediately and perform repairs or
seek assistance. Continued use of failed components can cause more
unnecessary damage to your product.
ESC and Servo
The ESC and servo included in your vehicle are rated for all weather use. It
is recommended that you avoid submersion of the vehicle however running
in puddles, rain and snow should not cause damage. Always remove excess
water/snow from your vehicle after running to help prevent corrosion. Using
an air compressor is effective but please use eye protection.
Transmitter
Although the receiver included with your radio system is rated for all weather
use, the transmitter is not. The transmitter should not be used in the rain or
other wet environment to avoid damage to the sensitive electronics.
• Clean dirt and debris off of your transmitter regularly to avoid the
consequences of these getting into the sensitive electronics where they
can cause short circuits and/or restrict motion of the internal steering
and throttle mechanisms.
• Ensure the antenna is kept in proper working order. The transmitter is not
safe to use with a broken or missing antenna.
Receiver
Although the receiver included with your radio system is rated for all weather
use, it is recommended that you avoid submersion of the receiver, however
running in puddles, rain, and snow is okay.
To achieve full operating range with your radio system, it is critical that the
receiver antenna be installed properly and undamaged.
• Inspect any exposed antenna for cuts or abrasions.
• Ensure there are no kinks in the antenna or antenna tube.
18
• Never fold the end of the antenna over the tube, this will reduce the
range and damage the antenna.
• Ensure the antenna is not being pinched by the set screw that holds the
antenna tube in place.
Gears
Periodically remove the gear cover to clearly inspect the gears and ensure
there is no debris in the gear compartment.
Proper gear mesh setting is crucial for proper operation and life of gears in
your product. It is important to have the pinion gear (attached to motor) as
close to the spur gear (attached to drive shaft) as possible yet while providing
a minimal amount of backlash. Backlash is the rotation one gear has to make
before contacting the other. Having the gear mesh set too tight will cause
excess load on the electrical components and may cause premature failure.
Having gear mesh set too loose will cause excess wear and possible skipping
of teeth during operation thus causing excess wear and premature failure.
Checking the gear mesh and setting proper backlash.
1. Remove the spur gear cover.
2. Check how much movement is allowed (backlash) of the spur gear
before the pinion gear moves (this is mostly feel, not visual). Check this
movement in multiple places by rotating the spur gear approximately 1/6
rotation and rechecking.
3. If the spur gear is allowed to move more than a very small amount, or if it
there is no backlash, the gear mesh must be adjusted. If there is a lot of
movement, it is recommended to attempt to tighten the mesh. Attempted
adjustment should only improve the situation; if the mesh was correct to
begin with, you will know what that feels like, and if it wasn’t correct, it
will be when you are done after following these procedures.
Setting the Gear Mesh
1. Loosen the clamping screw securing the motor plate’s rotation in the
motor mount, only enough to allow the motor to rotate in the mount.
Check and ensure there is no debris in the gears affecting the mesh.
2. Rotate the top of the motor away from the center of the chassis, insert a
strip of notebook paper between the pinion and spur gear, then rotate the
motor plate back until there is no backlash. You will have to push/twist
relatively hard to ensure the paper is pressed all the way into the teeth.
3. Hold the motor snugly in position while retightening the screw. Only
tighten the screw until the motor won’t move. There should be a slight
gap between the coils of the spring.
4. Rotate the spur gear (turn the tires) to feed the paper out of the mesh,
re-check the gear mesh and adjust again if necessary.
5. Re-install the spur gear cover when the mesh is properly set.
19
WARNING: NEVER OPERATE YOUR VEHICLE WITH THE SPUR GEAR COVER
REMOVED. SEVERE INJURY, DAMAGE TO ELECTRICAL COMPONENTS, AND
EXCESSIVE WEAR AND TEAR ON DRIVETRAIN MAY RESULT.
Shocks
Periodically inspect the shocks for smooth motion, leaking oil and dirt residue
build up around the shaft or caps. Do not allow dirt to build up around the shock
shaft and bottom of the shock. Doing so will reduce the life of the shock and
cause a shock to leak oil. Be sure to clean the shocks regularly with a clean and
dry soft bristle brush and/or rag.
CAUTION: NEVER USE SPRAY CLEANERS TO CLEAN YOUR SHOCKS, DOING SO CAN
CAUSE DAMAGE TO THE SEALS, CAUSING THEM TO LEAK MORE AND REDUCE THE
LIEF AND PERFORMANCE OF YOUR SHOCKS.
Signs to look out for determining if your shock needs to be maintained or
rebuilt.
• Oil around the shaft means the oil leaked from inside and needs to be
replaced.
• Persistent oil around the shock shaft or lower portion of the shock typically
points to damaged O-rings which will need replacing. See your local hobby
dealer for replacement parts.
Refilling your shocks:
1. Remove shock from vehicle, remove spring and top cap. Remove the bleed
screw from the cap.
2. With shock shaft extended, add oil to top of body (use only 100% silicone
oil) and reinstall the shock cap. Be sure the o-ring stays “seated” and does
not squeeze out.
3. Slowly compress the shock shaft 100% of travel using a towel or paper
napkin to clean up overflowed oil, then reinstall the bleed screw. Do not
over-tighten.
4. Check for free motion of shock. If the shock feels like it gets stiffer at the
end of compression, there is too much oil or air. Compress the shaft and
remove the bleed screw slowly to allow excess air/oil to come out, then
reinstall the screw.
5. It is normal for the shock to rebound (with the spring removed) after full
compression and release.
Replacing the O-rings:
• Disassemble shock and remove shock end and shaft from the body.
• Carefully remove lower cap by unscrewing from the shock body.
• Remove the O-ring and spacer and replace with genuine replacement parts.
• Re-assemble the shock following the refilling instructions above.

Tires and Wheels
Inspect the tires to ensure they have adequate tread and they are properly
glued to the wheels. The tires on your vehicle come pre-glued from the
factory; however after running your vehicle it is possible for the glue to come
loose in some areas.
• To reattach the tire to the wheel, use hobby grade Cyanoacrylate (CA)
glue and apply small amounts (one drop at a time) between the tire and
wheel. Allow the glue to fully dry before operating your vehicle.
• When reinstalling tires, use caution when tightening the nuts that secure
the wheels to the vehicle. Ensure the wheels rotate freely but don’t
wobble excessively. Over tightening the wheels may cause excess strain
on the electrical and mechanical components of your vehicle. Operating
your vehicle under these conditions will void your warranty.
• Taking the above into consideration, leaving wheels too loose can cause
them to strip. It is recommended to check that the wheel nuts are tight
every time you run your vehicle.
• Consequently running your vehicle will cause the tires to eventually wear
out. Be sure to obtain and use genuine replacement parts from your local
hobby dealer when necessary.
General Wear and Tear
Using your vehicle will cause general wear and tear which is not covered
under warranty yet may necessitate replacement of components. Continued
operation of your product with worn components may cause continued
damage to other components.
Be sure to regularly inspect your vehicle and accessories for excess wear and
damaged components.
Storage and Disposal
Storage
• Always store all equipment in a cool dry place when not in use.
• Always disconnect the batteries before storage.
• Never store the transmitter or receiver in direct sunlight for extended
periods of time.
• Never store the transmitter with batteries installed for extended periods
of time. Doing so may allow the batteries to leak and cause permanent
damage to the transmitter.
• Always disconnect electrical connections after use in wet environments.
Allowing the contacts to dry will reduce corrosion.
21
Disposal
Your product is considered electronic waste and should never be discarded
in standard garbage containers. Please visit your local hobby dealer (and
some home improvement centers) and use the FREE battery disposal center
for proper disposal/recycling. Consult your local city hall for information on
recycling other electronic waste.
Troubleshooting Problems
Before contacting customer support, recall that this is a hobby grade product
intended to be user serviceable. Please take the time to fully inspect your
product for any obvious causes to the issues you are experiencing. Below
are some of the most common issues experienced. Ensure you refer to the
product support content on our website.
• Many control issues can be resolved by simply re-pairing the transmitter
and receiver, always start here.
• Dead transmitter or vehicle batteries will cause the product to
malfunction and not work properly. As with TV remote controls in your
home, if the batteries are dead, they don’t work. Start power related
troubleshooting with fresh batteries in the transmitter and recharged
batteries in the vehicle.
• Power connections between the Battery, ESC and receiver are critical to
the performance of the product. Running in various debris may cause
foreign objects to snag on wires, causing connections to come loose. It
is a good idea to unplug and reconnect motor and battery connections
when beginning power related troubleshooting. Also inspect for any
damage caused to the antenna.
• Drivetrain issues can mask themselves as power related. Fully inspect
the wheels, driveshafts, and motor for foreign objects that may have
become tangled or wrapped around the spinning parts of the drivetrain.
Small objects like fishing line for example, can wrap around a drive shaft,
overheat and melt due to the friction and cause the entire drivetrain to
lock up. Although a big problem, it can be difficult to see when inspecting.
Always remove the wheels from your vehicle when troubleshooting
drivetrain related issues.
• The drivetrain in your vehicle has a covered shaft to protect from debris.
We encourage you to remove it and inspect under the cover to ensure
that items have not been entangled around the shaft causing drag and
possible failure. Inspect around the steering components to ensure no
debris are preventing normal steering operation.
• Steering can become sluggish once components get dirty or “take a set”
after running. Inspect the rod ends of the turnbuckles to ensure they are
properly aligned and not binding. You should be able to grab a turnbuckle
with your fingers and rotate it easily.
22
• Healthy gears are crucial to a properly functioning vehicle. If you hear
your vehicle making very loud noises, you should immediately stop and
check the gears for foreign debris. Even a small pebble can get lodged
into the teeth of the pinion gear, which would practically destroy the spur
gear in a very short period of time.
