Question

Truck cutting out


I just ran my new stenton for the first time. It ran for about 30 seconds and cut out. I turned it off and back on. It cut out again. I can't figure it out. Any thoughts out there?

Thanks, Joe

Battery isn't charged?

Yes, battery is charged. However, my 50c battery died. I am using a 20c battery. Would this have any effect? I am asking because I also had the same problem with an Team Associated car last year, but was running a 50c battery. The batteries are both 5000mah and 7.4v.

Did I make the A Main?

double check the LVC setting... for example if you are running a 2S LiPo and the ESC has the LVC is set to 3S then it will shut off on 2S

What is an LVC? How do I check it?

Here's the manual for the Senton:
https://www.arrma-rc.com/pdf/manuals...387_6S_BLX.pdf

Page 27 explains the LVC = Low Voltage Cutoff limitations and how to program the ESC, apparently it auto selects the voltage with a minimum requirement of 3S, 4S or 6S

Also states a minimum of 35C - 5000mAh pack too

This tells me that if you are using either 2S or 5S, then you will hit LVC unless you set the ESC into NiMh mode which disables LVC.

Be sure to read the following article if you decide to disable LVC so you fully understand the risks:

I was told I could run this on 2s by the distributor. Is the LVC that you are talking about the small button next to the power switch? Also I ordered a new 5000 mah battery yesterday. I guess I will start again when I receive it. I am really lost on this.

Thanks Joe

There is three versions of the Senton. Depending on the model, the ESC's low voltage cutoff setting may vary.

Which Senton do you have?
