Ripmax p-xtra sea sprint ESC by EAGLE Lieutenant   Posted: 1 year ago
Hi Soft start means you can push the stick full forward and the revs builds up at a steady pace, a lot of the ripmax esc don't have bec, as far as l can remember, l switched the tranny on, centre the trims, plugged the esc and 4.8v into the res, you should get a steady light, press the button, you should be ready to go, if not let me know and l'll see if l can find the data sheet. Dave

Hi Chris I have a ripmax esc, they need a 4.8 volt surply. No BEC. Great speed controller, they have soft start, and are reliable. Hope this helps. Regards Dave

Micro servo as continuous motor by EAGLE Lieutenant   Posted: 2 years ago
Hi, All l can suggest is go on to Mayhem, go to the Black Arts section there is a video on continuous turning servos. Regards Dave. 😉 😉 😉

Micro servo as continuous motor by EAGLE Lieutenant   Posted: 2 years ago
Hi. You do'nt want the pot to move so you glue it in the nil position, when you want it to stop, centre the trim. I've used them for sail winches on small sails. Regards Dave

Micro servo as continuous motor by EAGLE Lieutenant   Posted: 2 years ago
Hi Steve One thing l didn't mention is l use the trim on the channel to adjust the speed of the rotation. Dave

Micro servo as continuous motor by EAGLE Lieutenant   Posted: 2 years ago
Hi Cormorant I have done this several of these, centre the pot. I do by connecting it to a receiver, put the trims to, centre on the Rx switch on and move the pot so that the motor stops on the servo, then put some super glue on the pot and leave for short time, replace the small gears, the last gear has a small tag on the lower part of he gear, snip it off, and open up the hole in the gear slightly, replace the gear and the top gear. You can then use a spare channel on the rx to adjust the speed on the servo in both forward & reverse. If you have any trouble go on mayhem under the black arts section and there is a vid on there. Regards Dave
