5. Start Mode:*Normal / Soft / Very-Soft, default is “Normal”.
“Normal” is preferred for fixed-wing aircraft. “Soft” or “Very-Soft” are preferred for helicopters. The
initial acceleration of the “Soft” and “Very-Soft” modes are slower than “Normal” mode, usually it
takes 3 second for “Soft” mode or 8 seconds for “Very-Soft” mode from 0% throttle advance to full
throttle. After startup, if the throttle is closed (throttle stick is moved to the bottom position) and
opened again (throttle stick is moved upwards) within 3 seconds, the restart will be temporarily
changed to “Normal” mode to get rid of the chances of a crash caused by slow throttle response.
This special design is usedful for aerobatic flight.
6. Timing:0°/ 3.75° / 7.5° / 11.25° / *15° / 18.75° / 22.5° / 26.25°, default is 15°.
Usually, low timing value is suitable for most motors. But there are many differences among
structures and parameters of different motors so please try and select the most suitable timing
value according to the motor you are just using. The correct timing value makes the motor run
smoothly. And generally, higher timing value brings out higher output power and higher speed.

BEC means the “Battery Elimination Circuit”. It is a DC-DC voltage regulator to supply the
receiver and other equipments from the main battery pack. The ESC hasn’t a built-in BEC, an
UBEC (Ultimate-BEC) or an individual battery pack should be used to power the receiver.
The rotation speed for the main rotor blades = (The speed of 2 poles motor * 13) / 3 / 150
When you adjust the throttle curve, please make sure that the motor can run at this preset speed
even if the motor load is heaviest. Please note that the governor mode function is automatically
disabled if the throttle volume is less than 60%.

7. Governor Mode:*Off / Governor Low / Governor High, default is “Off”.
If the governor mode is activated, the ESC will try its best to hold the motor speed at a fixed value.
(Usually the throttle curve is a horizontal line, you can change the preset motor speed by changing the height of this line). The speed range of “Governor Low” mode is 10000RPM to 45000RPM
for 2 poles brushless motor, “Governor High” mode is 46000RPM to 200000RPM for 2 poles
brushless motor. In order to calculate the speed of the main rotor blades of your helicopter, you
need to know the motor poles number and the gear rate of main drive gear vs. the pinion. For
example, if you are using a 6 poles motor (that is: 3 pair poles), and the main drive gear is 150T,
the pinion is 13T, so you can calculate as follows:

8. Reserved Item #1:Reserved for future.
9. PWM Frequency:*12KHz / 8KHz, default is “12KHz”.
For some motors with high KV (high speed) and many poles, the 12KHz PWM frequency may let
them work more smoothly. But the higher PWM frequency will make the ESC hotter. Generally,
the 8KHz PWM frequency is suitable for most motors.
10. Built-In BEC Output:*5.25V / 6V, default is 5.25V. (#8047 hasn’t built-in BEC)
11. Reserved Item #2:Reserved for future.
12. Lipo Cells:
For normal voltage ESC (supports 2-6 cells Lipo), the values are *Auto / 2S / 3S / 4S / 5S / 6S,
the default is “Auto”
This programmable item is available for lithium battery. In the startup process, the motor will
emits several “Beep-” tones to represent the Lipo cells number, it is helpful for you to check
whether it is coincident with the actual battery pack or not.

If you choose “Auto”, the ESC may mistakenly judge the battery cells when the voltage is less
than 3.7V/Cell, so we strongly suggest setting the “Lipo Cells” manually.
For normal voltage ESC (supports 2 to 6 cells Lipo), we use 5 short “Beep-” tones to
represent 5S lipo, and 6 short “Beep-” tones to represent 6S lipo.

【Programmable Items】
1. Brake Setting:*Off / Soft / Hard / Very Hard, default is “Off”.
2. Battery Type:*Lithium (Lipo or Li-ion) / NiMH, default is “Lithium”.
3. Low Voltage Protection Mode (CutOff Mode):*Soft Cut (Gradually reduce the output power) /
Hard Cut (Immediately stop the output power). Default is “Soft Cut”.
4. Low Voltage Protection Threshold (Cutoff Threshold):*Low / Middle / High / Custom, default
is “Low”.
1) For lithium batteries, the cutoff threshold of the whole battery pack is calculated according to the
cells number. For normal voltage ESC (supports 2-6 cells Lipo), the Low / Middle / High value
for each cell is: 2.85V / 3.15V / 3.30V. For example, if the cutoff threshold is set to “Middle”, then
the threshold for a 3 cells Lipo battery pack is 3.15*3=9.45V.
2) For NiMH and NiCd batteries, the cutoff threshold of the whole battery pack is calculated as
follows: Low : 50% of the battery’s battery’s full charged voltage Middle: 62.5% of the battery’s
full charged voltage High: 75% of the battery’s full charged voltage
3) If this programmable item is set to “Custom”, that means you can set the cutoff threshold for the
whole battery pack very accurately with the step of ±0.1V. The LCD program box or PC software
(through USB adapter) is needed to customize the value.
Please check the wiring and connections carefully, and then start the ESC in the following sequences:
1. Move the throttle stick to the bottom position and then switch on the transmitter.
2. Connect the battery pack to the ESC, the ESC begins the self-test process, a special tone “♪ 123”
is emitted, which means the voltage of the battery pack is in normal range, and then N “Beep”
tones will be emitted, means the number of lipo battery cells. Finally a long “Beep—” tone will be
emitted, which means the self-test is OK, the aircraft or helicopter is ready to go flying.
◆ If nothing is happened, please check the battery pack and all the connections;
◆ If a special tone “♪ 56712 ” is emitted after 2 Beep tones (“Beep-Beep-”), means the ESC has
entered the program mode, it is because the throttle channel of your transmitter is reversed,
please set it correctly;
◆ If the red LED flashes very quickly (2 times per second), means the input voltage is too low or too
high, please check your battery’s voltage.
VERY IMPORTANT! Because different transmitter has different throttle range, you need
to calibrate the throttle range and let the ESC remember it. Please read the instruction
on the left bottom of this page ------“Throttle Range Setting”.
After correctly setting the throttle range, the red LED lights when the throttle stick is
moved to the top position (Maximum throttle).
【Alert Tone】
1. Input voltage is abnormal: The ESC begins to check the voltage when the battery pack is
connected, if the voltage is not in the acceptable range, such an alert tone will be emitted: “BeepBeep-, Beep-Beep-” (Every “Beep-Beep-” has a time interval of about 1 second), and at the same
time, the red LED also flashes.
2. Throttle signal is lost: When the ESC can’t detect the normal throttle signal, such an alert tone will
be emitted: “Beep-, Beep-, Beep-”. (Every “Beep-” has a time interval of about 2 seconds)
3. Throttle stick is not in the bottom position: When the throttle stick is not in the bottom (lowest)
position, a very rapid alert tone will be emitted: “Beep-, Beep-, Beep-”. (Every “Beep-” has a time
interval of about 0.25 second.)
【Protection Function】
1. Abnormal startup protection: If the motor fails to start within 2 seconds of throttle application, the
ESC will cut-off the output power. In this case, the throttle stick MUST be moved to the bottom
position again to restart the motor. (This happens in the following cases: The connection between
ESC and motor is not reliable, the propeller or the motor is blocked, the gearbox is damaged, etc.)
2. Over-heat protection: When the temperature of the ESC is over a factory-preset degree, the ESC
will reduce the output power.
3. Throttle signal loss protection: The ESC will cutoff the output power if throttle signal is lost for more
than 0.25 second, the output power will be resumed as soon as the throttle signal is normal again.
