Seems like there are two versions of ESCs out there now, and they have slightly different programming. Try the instructions below - if they work for you then great. If not, try checking out this forum on RCGroups:


Tower Pro Brushless Motor Controller Set Up Instructions for 18A and 30A

Remove prop from motor if fitted
Connect speed controller to motor and receiver
Disconnect battery from speed controller
Move throttle stick on your transmitter to full throttle
Reconnect battery to speed controller

After three seconds you will hear sound patters (Each one repeated three times)
These sounds represent programmable functions-

= CELL Type and Number
=== TIMING Mode
==== VOLTAGE protection

When you hear the sound pattern relating to the function you wish to programme move the throttle to the MIDDLE position

The ESC will then emit sounds again in groups of three in the following order-

CELL Type and Number
+ NiMh/Nicad/Auto
++ 2 LiPo 7.4v
+++ 3 LiPo 11.1v
++++ 4 LiPo 14.8v
+ Off
++ Soft
+++ Medium
++++ Hard
+ 2 degrees
++ 7 degrees
+++ 15 degrees
++++ 30 degrees
+ 2.8v/Cell
++ 2.9v/Cell
+++ 3.0v/Cell
NB: 10C and higher suggest 3.0v
When you hear the pattern sound for the function you require move the throttle to the UP position
A long BEEP will be heard confirming the option has been saved
The system will then revet back to the programming mode for the next option

When all functions have been selected move throttle to the DOWN position
The system will save all selections after one second and the unit will then be ready for use.
