stock ESC

Hello guys,

Can anybody help me and explain me how to setup the stock 30A ESC?
I tried the HW program card but that does not work.

Take care,

Luc

Please let us know once you put the 60A ESC and tell us the results of your flights. I bought one and I am to get it soon, all stock. By reading the thread it seems that is goes better with 4S.....

I had to turn it on with WOT first time, presumably to set the throttle range.

It means wide open throttle mate. Often you gain access to speed controllers programming mode by switching on with the throttle stick pushed all the way forwards, i.e. wide open throttle.

yes.. do you hear any beeps.. pull full throttle back once you plug everything and also full trim back.. wait for initializing beeps.

I have a couple of speed controllers that will not start unless the throttle trim is pulled all the way back. The ones I have need to see absolute zero throttle. Try it, that may be your problem.

I tried the throttle trim all the way down but still no good result.
I here the ESC counts the correct amount of cells in the LiPo I tried a 2S and 3S no difference.
It seems like the motor is trying to start but it gets not enough power although the LiPo is fully charged.

That came also in my mind but I got into the setup menu and for some reason the brake was ON instead of OFF so I changed that and now the motor is spinning up.
End good all good
Thanks to you guys helping me with ideas to solve the problem.
I fly helis and airplanes are completely new to me so any tips are very welcome.

Finally maidened my Stinger this evening! First EDF for me. Flew great! Great adrenalin rush! Flew stock with an 1800 3s first, then flew again with a 2200 3s. Both worked great. 1800 may have been a bit tail heavy, but I'm a bit of a noob to the EDF scene, so who knows?

The stickers don't seem to hold up too well to long grass belly landings... or was it peeling back and flaking off from the speed??? (joke) Either way, I'm going to have to give him a new paintjob at some point. Anyone painted yet? I would love to see a few ideas.

Cheers,

Cam
