    Thanks Jerry, would like to hear of your progress,
    Just checked the Turningy /HK ESC programming chart and see the default settings are: 1 - 2, 2 - 2, 3 -5, 4 - 6, 5 - 1, 6 - 5. These are quite usable with your boat.
    Have changed them slightly as am using different motors, but they should work to get you going without a programming card.
    Good Luck Rowen

    That should be quite a performer once completed.
    Stick with it and you will find the frustrations slowly disappear.
    Between this site, Model Boats Mayhem and RCGroups you will find a wealth of information and resources.
    The Precedent Huntsman is a popular build and there is much information around on it.
    Good luck, never hesitate to ask advice if needed. I have been given vast amounts of it from many sources, all welcome.

    That is encouraging!
    From my experience of brushless they operate much more erratically than brushed at low rpm and start-up.
    Not surprised one starts before the other. That is one of the reasons prefer to have each system on individual controls so can compensate. Guess that is personal preference!
    The program card might be defunct, but would suggest follow the instructions in the article sent before condemning it. If you are in a local club perhaps borrow one?
    Curious about your model, should be able to propel the QE2 with those motors - what are you building?

    Guess should have asked, do you have a double control lever Tx or a pistol grip style? I have only ever used the two lever style so can usually find a spare channel.
    Not sure about the pistol style - perhaps somebody else has an idea. Might need the Y connector after all.

    Suggest, lets get one ESC/motor going first and then move to the second. Put the Y lead to one side right now.
    You need to put the 3 wire connector from the ESC into your receiver (correct way around), connect up the battery to the motor and see what happens when you operate the Transmitter - I assume the Tx and Rx are correctly bound?
    The ESC default settings from Turnigy should get things working.
    Once you have one working, move to the second. Put the red wire back into the second ESC, remove the first system and try the second.
    If they both work separately - progress!
    Would now reprogram both ESCs to the settings you think might suite your application best. They are in that article.
    Once all works separately, remove one ESC red wire and tie back. You can then put both ESC connectors into the Y lead and fit to Rx. One control should operate both ESC/motors.
    However, from my experience, if you have several Tx/Rx channels better to put each motor system on its own separate channel and do not use a Y lead. This allows individual motor control, which makes the boat easier to handle.
    Might be better to now put these questions on the full site now so others can contribute, I have been known to make mistakes - which is why I ALWAYS fit fuses! I wanted the PM to send those instructions as am not sure how widely available they are.
    Brushless are a challenge, but they do work well. a

    I did something similar using the β€œElvon” function on my Tx. Does work well as the rudders have limited effect at slow speed
