Programmable Items
【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 “Middle”.
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 high voltage ESC (supports 5-12 cells Lipo), the Low / Middle / High value for each cell is: 2.75V / 3.0V / 3.25V
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)Low : 50% of the battery’s battery’s full charged voltage
Middle: 62.5% of the battery’s full charged voltage
1
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 program box or PC software(through USB adapter) is need to customize the
value.
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 start up, 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°.Note3
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 valuemakes the motor run smoothly. And generally, higher timing value brings out higher output power
and higher speed.
Note3:After changing the timing setting, please test your RC model on ground prior to flight!
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"is 100000RPM to 45000RPM for 2 poles brushless motor,"Governor High"mode is
46000RPM to 200000RPM for 2 poles brushless motor,In order to caneed 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 follow:
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 less than 60%.
8.Motor Type:*Normal Motor / Special Motor 1 / Special Motor 2,, default is !°Normal Motor!±
Usually, the default value !°Normal Motor!± is suitable for most of motors, but if the motor cannot
run smoothly with this mode, please try other 2 options.
9.PWM Frequency: *12KHz / 24KHz, default is !°12KHz!±.
For some motors with high KV (high speed) and many poles, the 24KHz PWM frequency may let them work more
smoothly. But the higher PWM frequency will make the ESC to be hotter.
10.Built-In BEC Output: *5.25V / 6 V, default is 5.25V.
11.Motor Load:Normal / Heavy / Very Heavy / Auto.
For normal voltage ESC (supports 2-6 cells Lipo), the default value is !°Normal!±
For high voltage ESC (supports 5-12 cells Lipo), the default value is !°Auto-F3A!±;Please note that !°Auto-F3A!± option
is only suitable for big motors of large scale airplanes such as F3A, please don!ˉt use this option for big motors of
helicopters.) When you accelerate the motor immediately, if the motor suddenly stop running and emit scream
sound,please try to set this item to other value.
12. Lipo Cells:
For normal voltage ESC (supports 2-6 cells Lipo), *Auto / 2S / 3S / 4S / 5S / 6S, the default is Auto!±Note4
For high voltage ESC (supports 5 to 12 cells Lipo), *Auto / 5S / 6S / 8S / 10S / 12S, the default isAuto!±Note5
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.Note5.
Not4: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.
Note5:For high voltage ESC(supports 5to 12 cells lipo),when the motor emits the "Beep"tone to represents the cells
number,a long"Beep-"tone.So 5S="Beep-",6S="Beep-Beep"(1 long 1 short),8S="Beep-Beep-Beep-Beep-"(1 long 3
short),10S="Beep-Beep-"(2 long),12S=Beep-Beep-Beep-Beep-" (2 long 2 short).While for normal voltage ESC
(supports 2 to 6 cells Lipo),we still use 5 short "Beep-"tones to represent 5S lipo,and 6 short"Beep-"tones to represent
6S lipo.
Begin To Use The New ESC
【Begin
ESC】
Please check the wiring and connections carefully, an1. Move the throttle stick to the bottom 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, mean 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;
2
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.
3.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
【Alert
Tone】
Input voltage is abnormal: The ESC begins to check the voltage when the battery pack is connected, if the voltage is not
in acceptable range, such an alert tone will be emitted: !°Beep-Beep-, Beep-Beep-!± (Every !°Beep-!± has a time
interval of about 1seconds),and at the same time, the red LED also flashes.
2.Throttle signal is lost: When the ESC can!ˉt detect the normal throttle signal, such an alert tone will be
emitted: !°Beep-,BeepBeep--, (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-, Beep has a time interval of about 0.25 second.).The
output power will be resumed as soon as the throttle signal is normal again.
