Tekin rebel instructions

I have a Tekin 'Rebel' esc with no instructions. Any help to program or info about it will be appreciated. I think it is brand new. Will it work with lipo batteries? Thanks in advance.

I just googled the Tekin site and downloaded the instructions for the 'Rebel'. Any info on using lipo batteries would still be appreciated.

You will need a lipo cutoff or warning device. Novak has a Smart-Stop cutoff that works fine.

If its the same rebel i have, it is rated for ten cells.............you can run 3s lipo if you have a motor that can handle it.

It can handle 10 cells with a stock motor, with a 15 turn or below it has a limit of 8, and with 10 turn or below limit of 6. Just remember the Novak Smart Stop is for a specific cell count, some other brands may be adjustable but I am unsure of them. If you get one that is not adjustable you will not be able to run lipo packs of other volatges.
Also Tekin products are great about being under rated, they may handle lower turn motors with 10 cells, or 3s lipo no problem, just dont expect a warranty.
