I hope so Dave.
I ordered the motor
s and esc's from Hobbyking Tuesday PM and the arrived this morning 36 hours from order to receipt, very good.
Now as this my first dabblings with brushless motor
s and esc's I have a few problems, which I hope somebody may be able to help me with, I bought a hobbyking
esc programming card
, there are no instructions
with it although it seems a quite straightforward operation to set the required values.
Part of this is working out what each item is
1) Running mode. Ok choice of three, forward/brake: forward/ brake/reverse: Forward reverse. (easy enough)
2) Fixed area accelerator: 6%:9%:or 12% (??🤓)
3)Battery Low Voltage Protection. 6 settings from non protection to 3.4v (probably set at no protection as using NiMh)
4)Start Mode (punch): 9 levels, which one?
5)Reverse Force: 4 levels 25-100% (ok self explanatory)
6)Timing Set: 5/10/15/20/25/30/automatic ( which one )
Bearing in mind what the model
is (not a competition racer);what I require of it is forward/reverse; port and starboard
. I do not require it to take off like a scalded cat with just the props and rudder
s in the water. Acceleration from stop to max in about 4-5 seconds.
I had about a 50 year gap in model
boat making until about five years ago the last one i made was when I was 15, although in the years in between I did get to play with the real things when I was in the RAF. So if you do have any advice
remember you are telling a person on the wrong side of 69😋, and thanks in advance
