ESC/Rx- Full Instruction Manual
(Covers Part #804-0005)
Congratulations and thank you for your purchasing this product. Improper usage and unauthorized modifications to our product is
extremely dangerous and may damage the product and related devices. Please take your time and read the following instructions carefully
before you start using your ESC/Rx unit. We have the right to modify our product design, appearance, features and usage requirements
without notification.
- Ensure all wires and connections are well insulated before connecting the ESC/Rx to related devices, as short circuit will
damage your ESC.
- Ensure all devices are well connected to prevent poor connection that may cause your vehicle to lose control or other
unpredictable issues such as damage to the device.
- Read through the manuals of all power devices and chassis and ensure the power configuration is rational before using this
unit.
- Stop using the ESC when its temperature exceeds 90°C/194°F, otherwise your ESC/Rx will be damaged and may also damage
your motor. We always recommend setting the “Over-Heat Warning” to “Enabled” to ensure damage does not occur to your
ESC/Rx unit.
- Always disconnect the batteries after use, as the ESC will continue to consume current if it’s connected to batteries (even if the
ESC is turned off). Long-time conection will cause batteries to completely discharge and result in damage to batteries and/or
ESC. This WILL NOT be covered under warranty.
- ESC is compatible with sensorless brushless motors.
- Proportional brake with 4 levels of maximum brake force and 4 levels of initial brake force and 8 levels drag brake force.
- 9 levels of acceleration/punch from soft to aggressive for different vehicles, tires and tracks.
- Multiple protections: low-voltage cutoff protection, thermal protection, overload protection, and fail safe (throttle signal loss protection).
- Single-button ESC programming and factory reset.
ESC SET-UP
1. Ensure battery is installed and Ensure battery is installed and connected to model and secured in battery tray area. Ensure battery is
connected correctly or damage can occur to ESC/Rx unit.
2. Remove hood on model so you have full access to ESC/Rx unit.
3. Ensure car is elevated off ground so tires are not touching ground, this will prevent any damage if car starts to move during binding
process.
4. On transmitter, make sure the throttle trim knob is turned clockwise until it stops and ensure steering trim knob is center in its rotation,
then turn on transmitter.
5. Hold ESC Set Button down while you turn on the model using the switch just behind the front axle from underside of model.
6. When ESC Red Light starts to flash, release the Set Button, ESC is now in setup mode.
7. With trigger on radio in neutral position, press Set Button one(1) time, ESC Red Light will stop flashing, this confirms the neutral
position.
8. Now pull trigger to full throttle on transmitter and press Set Button again, ESC Green Light will flash twice to confirm full throttle setting,
hold trigger in full throttle until light stops flashing.
9. Now push trigger to full brake on transmitter and press Set Button again, ESC Green Light will flash three time to confirm full brake
setting, hold trigger in full brake until light stops flashing.
10. Return trigger on transmitter to neutral and ESC Green Light will brink one time. Your
12. Ensure ESC it reaching full throttle, pull trigger to full throttle and ESC Green Light should go solid if full throttle is reached.
13. If steering and throttle do not work correct, go back to step 1 and repeat steps 1-12.

8. Neutral Range
This is an extremely powerful brushless motor system. For your safety and the safety of those around you, we strongly
recommend keeping wheels in the air when you turn on the ESC/Rx Unit.
1. Ensure battery is installed and connected to model and secured in battery tray area. Ensure battery is connected correctly or damage
can occur to ESC/Rx unit.
2. Remove hood on model so you have full access to ESC/Rx unit.
3. Ensure car is elevated off ground so tires are not touching ground, this will prevent any damage if car starts to move during binding
process.
4. Turn on transmitter.
5. Turn on model using the switch just behind the front axle from underside of model.
6. Plug in Bind Plug to bind port as shown in image to the right. Plug can be installed in either direction, there is no polarity to the bind
plug.
7. The Rx Blue light will start to flash after bind plug is installed.
8. Watch for blue light to stop flashing and go solid blue.
9. After blue light stays solid (no flashing), blue light will then again start to flash, when it does remove bind plug.
10. Blue light will flash briefly after plug is removed and then blue light will go solid, this means the Tx and Rx are now bound and model is
ready to use.
11. Ensure steering and throttle works correct, make adjustment to transmitter to ensure steering is moving correct direction and is straight
and car does not move when trigger is in neutral position.
12. If steering and throttle do not work, go back to step 1 and repeat steps 1-11.

To finish programming, switch off the ESC switch, then switch the ESC back on
1. Battery Wiring
Proper polarity is essential here! Make absolutely sure positive (+) of ESC(RED WIRE) connects to positive (+) of Battery, and
negative (-) of ESC(BLACK WIRE) connects to negative (-) of Battery when you plug in your battery! If reverse polarity is applied to
your ESC from the battery, it will damage your ESC. This will not be covered under warranty
2. ESC/Rx Switch
3. Motor Wiring
There is no polarity on the A/B/C wires between ESC and Motor, so
do not worry about how you connect them initially. You may find it
necessary to swap two wires if the motor runs in reverse.
4. Servo Port
5. Bind Port
There is no polarity to the Bind Plug when inserting it onto the bind
port. When installing the bind plug, ensure it is installed all the way
onto the bind plug port to ensure proper connection, failure to do so
can result is failure to bind.
9. Timing
Level 4 **
Option 5
Restore the default values with the SET Button. Press and hold the SET Button for
over 3 seconds anytime when the throttle trigger is at the neutral position (except
during the ESC calibration and programming) can factory reset your ESC. RED &
GREEN LEDs flash simultaneously indicating you have successfully restored all the
default values within your ESC. Once you power the ESC off, and then back on, your
settings will be back in the default mode.
1. During the Starting-up Process
• The RED LED keeps flashing rapidly
indicating the ESC doesn’t detect correct
throttle signal/nuetral value stored in ESC
that match radio settings. Rotate Throttle
Trim knob on radio until light stops flashing.
2. In Operation
• RED & GREEN LEDs die out when the
throttle trigger is in throttle neutral zone.
• The RED LED turns on solid when your
vehicle starts to run forward. The GREEN
LED will also come on when pulling the
throttle trigger to the full (100%) throttle.
• The RED LED turns on solid when you brake
the vehicle.
• The RED LED turns on solid when you
reverse your vehicle.
3. When Some Protection is Activated
• The RED LED flashes a short, single flashes
that repeats 3 times indicating the low
voltage cutoff protection is activated.
• The GREEN LED flashes a short, single
flashes that repeats 3 times indicating the
ESC thermal/overheat protection is activated.
1. Cutoff Voltage
The ESC monitors the battery voltage all the time,
it will immediately reduce the power to 50% and cut
off the output 8 seconds later when the voltage
goes below the cutoff threshold. The RED LED will
flash a short, single flash that repeats (*, *, *) to
indicate the low-voltage cutoff protection is
activated. Please replace the battery or charge the
battery immediately.
2. ESC Thermal Protection
The ESC will automatically cut off the output with
the RED LED flashes (*, *, *) when the temperature
gets up to the value you've previously preset and
activates the ESC Thermal Protection. The output
will not resume until the temperature goes down.
3.Signal loss protection
The ESC will automatically cut off the output with
the RED LED flashes fast when the throttle signal
loss 0.1 second later.
