Welcome to RCG.
Throttle must start at full up.
http://www.towerpro.cn/english/Manual/manual.html
TOWERPRO CO.LTD
BRUSHLESS MOTOR CONTROLLER
SETUP MENU (for new 18A /20A)
First, connect the motor and receiver to the speed controller
Remove battery power from the speed controller.
Turn on the transmitter.
Move throttle stick on full power position (UP Position)
Reconnect battery power to the speed controller
After 3 sec you can hear (all sound is 3 times)
∮— CELL Type AND Number
∮— — BRAKE
∮— — — TIMING MODE
∮— — — — Voltage Protection
ON you need programming menu, move the throttle stick to the middle position
5. Cell type and number SET
•—
•— — 2LIPO (7.4V)
•— — — 3LIPO(11.1V)
6. BRAKE SET
••— NO
•••— — SOFT
•••— — — MID
•••— — — — HARD
7. TIMING MODE SET
•••— 2
••••— — 7
•••••— — — 15
•••••— — — — 30
8. Voltage Protection
••••— 2.8V/CELL
•••••— — 2.9V/CELL
•••••••— — — 3.0V/CELL
Attention: 10C or higher battery suggest select the 3.0V as the protection voltage. IF the option is you need, then move the throttle stick to UP position.
The long BEEP is save the option. And the system will go to the programming menu. You can setup other options.
When all you need option is setup ok, push the throttle stick to down position, after 1 sec the system will save all option, and then you can start the motor now.
