Hi CB90, I also have quite a few of Hobbykings esc's and they have changed quite a bit over the years, needing different programming cards, have just bought three new esc's with their own card £39.00 from HobbyKing. I try any one with all the esc's and have never had a problem,just make sure you plug into the card, + to + and - to -, you should be OK with no damage to either. cheers, Peter
I have 3 or 4 programming boards from Hobbyking, and i have never thought of using one that isnt the correct one. But, having said that, the cards are now only six or seven pounds each, there seemed no sense in not buying the correct one when purchasing the esc. Good luck with however you choose to move forward. Best wishes, Dave W 😊
Thanks for your responses, please note this ESC does not have a brand name (generic Chinese job) and it didn't have any mention of a card on the instructions.
Anyway I tried it on 2 cards I have got and they did not work, resorted to sticks and code tones to turn off the break function.
Boat ran well if a bit too powerful, may use 7.4v instead of 11.1v
Features: 200A Brushless ESC with 5V/5A SBEC Water cooling. Waterproof design(Need to use 704 silicone rubber by yourself). This super simple boat series comes with a limited range of programming functions and are designed to be plug-n-play. A perfect ESC for those looking for something simple to use and economic.
