BRUSHLESS ESC
DIGITAL PROGRAMMER
NOTE: The lead on the ESC is a Futaba J-Type connector and
should key into the programmer jack. If you have clipped
the tab off of the J-type plug be sure to plug the ESC in
properly. If this is not connected properly, the programmer
will not power on.

Connect a battery to the ESC.
Select Battery This feature allows the user to change
the battery type that is being used. If the battery type is
changed, the cutoff voltage is automatically changed to ‘Auto’
cut off.

Set: LiPo  LiFe  NiCd / NiMH
Cut-Off Voltage Users can have the ESC automatically
set the low voltage cutoff in respect to the type of battery
that is being used, or the user can manually set the low voltage
cutoff. Important: Be sure that the battery is fully charged every
time it is plugged into the ESC.
3
Set: AUTO  3.0V~14.0V (0.1V increments) using INC
and DEC buttons.
Each time the battery type is changed, the cutoff voltage is
automatically changed to ‘Auto’ cutoff.
4
Power Curve This is similar to exponential, and makes
the throttle high side operation quicker or milder.
Set: Soft / LINEAR / Hard using INC and DEC buttons.

The Digital Programmer is a handheld device that allows the
user to easily adjust the features of the DuraTrax DE10™ ESC.
The programmer is small and lightweight, making it highly
portable and easy to take anywhere. This programmer allows
the user to fine-tune the adjustable features of the ESC and is
also great for quick, easy setup changes while at the track. It
also allows the user to download various types of performance
data for post-race analysis.
Connecting the ESC to the Programmer
Turn on the ESC’s power switch.You should see this screen
for approximately 1 second.
NOTE: The screen will automatically change to the first
adjustable feature of the programmer (Battery Type
selection).
Set: 0~25 Degrees (1 degree increments, Sensorless)
Using INC & DEC buttons.
Set: 0~10 Steps (1 step increments, Sensored) using
INC & DEC buttons.
Adjustable Features
Note: These features are adjusted by pressing the (Up) and

(Down) keys to scroll through the menu and pressing the
Increase (INC) and Decrease (DEC) buttons to change the setting.
The default values are indicated by BOLD GREY letters in this
manual.
Every time any of the settings is changed or adjusted, Step 28
must be completed or information will not be sent to the ESC.
Select Motor Type This allows the user to change
1 the
motor type being used. This can be performed at any
adjustable feature screen.To change the motor type, press the 
(Up) and  (Down) keys simultaneously until the desired motor
type is displayed. The motor type will flash and is displayed on
the right side of the screen. Please note that the programmer will
redirect to the ‘Select Battery’ screen while this is being performed.

Connect the ESC to the programmer by plugging the ESC
lead into jack located on the top of the programmer.

Advance Timing Zero degrees of advance is the lowest
setting and is displayed by a flashing green light on the
ESC when at neutral. Lower timing will increase torque, lower
RPM, decrease motor temperatures but provide the longest run
time. Increasing the timing will do just the opposite.
5
Set: Sensorless  Sensored  Brushed  Sensorless
(Can only be cycled in one direction.)
2
NOTE: For sensored type motors, this applies to forward
only and it is not applied to brushed motors.
Acceleration This is the time needed to change from
neutral position to max power. Slow reaction when the
setting is lowest / max power when setting is the highest.
6
Set: Lowest  Low  Normal  High  HIGHEST
using INC & DEC buttons.
Start Power This mode is designed to set the minimum
amount of power delivered to a motor when the motor
starts operating from standby. Soft start occurs when setting is
the lowest / powerful start when setting is the highest.
7
Set: LOWEST  Low  Normal  High 
Highest using INC & DEC buttons.
3
Start Current Limiter This is designed to prevent a car
from sliding depending on the surface of the track. Set
‘off’ for unlimited output. If the throttle stick stays at neutral or
brake position for over 10 seconds, this function is applied.
8
A.B.S. Brake Also known as Pulse Brake. This is similar
to pumping the brakes in a full size automobile.This feature
is to set ABS brake OFF or the amount of ABS Brake while the
throttle trigger is at full brake.
15
Tire Diameter This feature is to set diameter of the tire
in order for this programmer to calculate average and
maximum speed of the previous run.
25

buttons.
Set: OFF / Weakest / Weak / Normal / Strong / Strongest
using INC and DEC buttons.
Set: OFF/ 1%~100% using INC and DEC buttons (1%
increments).
Maximum Speed This screen shows the maximum speed
of the previous run in accordance with motor poles, gear
ratio and tire diameter that are set in steps 21~23. This function
does not work for brushed motors.
26
Current Limit This current limiter is ONLY applied to the
motor when the motor is rotating to the forward direction.
No current limitation is OFF is set.
9
Auto Brake Amount Also known as Drag Brake. This
feature is to set the amount of brake when the throttle
stick is in the neutral position.
16
Set: 0% ~ 100% using INC and DEC buttons.
Set: OFF / 1%~100% using INC & DEC buttons (1%
increments).
