Avoid any direct contact between power components, the receiver or the antenna as this can cause interference. If interference occurs, position the components at a different place in the model. Hall Sensor Wire BRUSHED MOTOR: • MOT.A (blue) and MOT.B (yellow) will be the combined „minus“ on the brushed motor. • MOT.C (orange) wire will be „plus“ on the brushed motor. • Mount the speedo and capacitor using the supplied thick/black doubled-sided tape. • ONLY FOR BRUSHED MOTORS! Motors with no capacitors or not enough capacitors may interfere with the speed-control. To avoid this, solder the supplied capacitors to your motor. + 5. radio / speed-control set-up In setup mode the LRP Crawler Reverse stores every step when you press the SET button.

It‘s simply „plug & play“ when you intend using a designated LRP Brushless motor! There are optional 2.6mm² power wire sets available (#82505), which allow you to use a „hardwired“ wire setup. The unique splitted solder-tabs allow easy and convenient replacement of the power wires. Nevertheless some soldering skills are required. Talk to your local hobbyshop if you are concerned about replacing the wires yourself. CAUTION: Be very careful with the correct wire sequence since an incorrect connection may damage the speed-control! Avoid creating solder bridges on the solder-tabs and isolate all connections carefully. Avoid soldering longer then 5sec per soldering joint. • This completes the setup procedure and your LRP Crawler Reverse is ready to use. • If you make a mistake during the setup procedure, don‘t worry: Disconnect the battery for about 10sec and start again from the first step. • At the end of each run switch of the car, and then switch off the transmitter. • At the start of each run switch on the transmitter first, then switch on the car. • For storage of the car, disconnect the drive battery at any time! CHECKING THE FUNCTIONS: Check the LED‘s when moving your throttle stick and you will see if everything is setup correctly.

The LRP Crawler Reverse features 4 modes which enable you to adjust it to YOUR special requirements. The factory settings are shown in grey colour. • How to get into „programming the modes“ Press MODE button for 3 or more seconds. • How to check the stored values Count the number of flashes of the red SET-LED (* = value 1 | ** = value 2 | etc.). • How to change the value Press SET button to increase value by one step. • How to get to the next Mode Press MODE button once. • How to leave the programming mode If you are in MODE.4, press the MODE button one more time, which will also store the settings! • Table of settings, values and modes: see below (grey-shaded values show „works default settings“). MODE.1 (AutoCell System): MODE LED #1 LiPo/NiMH Automatic Green #1 #2 Fwd/Rvs (no Brake) Forward/Brake/Reverse #3 Fwd/Rvs (no Brake) CW Motor Rotation #4 Forward/Brake/Reverse CW Motor Rotation MODE.3 (Throttle Profiles): allows you to perfectly adjust the LRP Crawler Reverse to your likes. All profiles apply for forward and reverse direction. MODE LED Green/Red (alternate) #1 Expo Curve Super Smooth Ramp #2 Expo Curve Smooth Ramp #3 Expo Curve No ramp #0 #1 #2 Throttle Profiles: finest throttle control at low rpm was the aim and the LRP engineering team definitely succeded! The LRP Crawler Reverse allows fine adjustments of the the throttle curve with it‘s four individual „Crawler Special“ maps to your special requirement. #3 #4 #5 #6 #7 #8 Going from lowest to highest automatic brake setting (value 1 = minimum / value 10 = maximum) Manual Brake: as a first for Crawler speedos, the LRP Crawler Reverse includes a mode with optional manual brake, which can be used in addition to the Auto-/Hill-Brake and gives you more tuning options to adjust your vehicle to the special crawler circumstances. The brake is applied evenly in both directions, no matter if you come from „forward to reverse“ or from „reverse to forward“ direction for maximum control on steep ramps. „Double Action“ on throttle is required to change from „brake to reverse“ mode, e.g. you have to return to neutral briefly to change function from brake to reverse. Note: this brake function is available in Mode.2 profiles #2 and #4. When selecting #1 or #3 you will have no manual brake. This special „manual brake“ function will require slightly different driving style and you should practice with this function to fully benefit from it and to see if you like it or not. 5A BEC: the LRP Crawler Reverse‘s super-strong 6.0V/5.0A BEC will power all your strong digital servos or even multi-servo vehicles with pleasure! MODE.4 (Auto-/Hill-Brake): allows you to set the amount of braking action which is applied in the neu- none to all crawler-applications and -models. You can choose from from two different drive modes (with or without manual brake) and also reverse motor rotation direction for vehicles with counter-rotating gearboxes or opposed transmission. #4 Linear tral range of the throttle position. MODE LED Green/Red (same time) Drive Selection & Motor Rotation: this versatile function allows you to adjust your LRP Crawler Reverse perfectly to your application or crawler terrain. Higher settings mean higher amount of braking, up to „wheel locking“ brake action demanded by many crawler specialists! MODE.2 (Drive Selection & Motor Rotation): the LRP Crawler Reverse allows you to select from two different drive modes (with or without manual brake) in both motor rotation directions. Red toCell System ensures that LiPo batteries can be used safely without accidentially deep-discharging of the cells. The motor function will be shut-off and the SET LED will flash if the system recognises very low battery voltage. Auto-/Hill-Brake: the LRP Crawler Reverse‘s high brake levels allow you to adjust the „drag“ of your vehicle #2 4-6cells NiMH (LiPo Cut-Off disabled) MODE LED AutoCell System: Ready for the next battery technology – LiPo batteries! LRP’s exclusive and smart Au- #9 #10 Automatic Brushless / Brushed Adaption: detects the connected motor type during turn-on/initialisation and adjusts the correct brushless or brushed operation automatically. No adjustments required by yourself, apart from the correct connection of each motor type (don‘t forget the hall-sensor-wire for brushless!). Caution: Keep in mind, when swopping between brushless and brushed motors, that the chosen mode values will be identical! Power Capacitor: Never disconnect the installed power-capacitor! It must be used with brushless and brushed motors. If the capacitor becomes damaged (dented, domed or swollen), speed-control failure may occur and therefore immediately replace a damaged capacitor. Caution: longer wires to power-capacitor will decrease performance! 9. troubleshooting guide EXPLANATION: If no remark, cause can be either with brushless or brushed motor. If „BM“ is indicated, cause only relating to brushed motor. Symptom Cause Remedy Servo is working, no motor function. Speed-control plugged in incorrectly Plug speed-control in Ch 2 Wiring problem Check wires and plugs Sensor Wire missing/defective Install/replace sensor wire Motor defective Replace motor BM - Motor brushes stuck Check that brushes are moving freely Overload protection activated Allow speed-control to cool down Speed-control defective Send in product for repair Speedo connected to receiver with wrong polarity Connect speedo with correct polarity Battery defective Replace with different battery pack Crystal defective Replace components one by one. No servo and no motor function. Changing Mode settings without the transmitter: At most events you usually do not have access to your transmitter, but never mind since you can simply disconnect the receiver lead from the receiver and change the MODE settings as described in section 6 „Mode Programming“. Works-Default-Settings: All LRP speed-controls come factory-adjusted (defaults are grey-shaded above). If you loose track of the modes, you can restore the works default settings. With the transmitter switched on, hold the SET button pressed while you switch on the speed-control. This returns the unit to the LRP works default settings. Sensored Brushless Technology: Advanced Digital allows the perfect knowledge of the brushless motor’s magnet position. This results in perfect motor control at high and low RPM‘s, as well as perfect brake control. Multi-Protection System, 3-way protection: The perfect protection against short-circuits (motor), overload and overheating. If your speed-control faces overload, the motor function will be shut-off for protection and the SET LED will flash, although the steering function is maintained. Let the speed-control cool down for a few minutes. If you experience frequent shutdowns, check functions with troubleshooting guide.
