Always going to have some vibes, they're very low on the scale now, between 100-150

Hey,

Has anybody got any programming info on the Hobbyking Red Brick 80amp(heli mode) esc?

Link- http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/s...dProduct=18011

I dropped one of these in my latest HK500GT build and it returns "2beep" "music" "3beep" after each time I return the throttle to zero? The ESC seems fully functional but the extra tones make me nervous, so no lift off yet. I would like to know the codes if anybody has them, as I can only find info on the sub 30amp Red Bricks which may not apply in full.

Mick

I had one of the HK ESC's that do that. problem is it can not start the motor at the moment the music is playing. If you do throttle up in the music, the motor won't start until you go to 0-throttle again.

Imagine you would hit TH in flight for a moment,.... music starts playing and you would never be able to spin up again unless you'd auto down.

I'd say toss the ESC or sell it. I have no idea why HK keeps selling stuff like this.

I had one of those before they called it red brick on my HK500. I bet you can use the basic tunigy program card on it. With the card you can change the music. I had Beethoven that my wife hates and then switched it to the China anthem. People have posted that the directions are all wrong that come with it.

Just read the directions for the plush and according to it you are in programming mode so you need to reverse your throttle channel. Man just read the directions for the brick and that is a nightmare also noticed it didn't even say how to get into programming.

Anyone know anything about the microheli tailcase and swashplate? I heard Microheli uses soft aluminum in their 250 FBL head is this true of all their parts?

For supposed upgraded parts, one would not think they would be soft.
