Electric Radio Controlled Boat Help.
How to calibrate the ESC before use on the high end electric boats:
Forward (pull the trigger towards you and prop should spin) - LED should shine as per the motor speed.
Brake (trigger in the neutral position, prop should now be stationary) - LED blinks.
Reverse (push the trigger away from you and the propshould spin in reverse) - LED shines solidly.
Note: the boat when moving in forward motion can not go into reverse motion immediately. There is brake delay time so the handset will first need to go into neutral for 0.35 seconds before you begin reversing.
If you are not experiencing forward motion, reverse motion or both, first check your trims. If this does not make any difference your boat may not be calibrated so use the procedure below:
* Handset and boat switched on.
* With the handset in neutral, press and hold the set-up button for 1 second until the LED blinks once/motor bleeps once. Neutral set-up is finished.
* Pull the trigger towards you, press and hold the set-up button for 1 second until the LED blinks twice/motor beeps twice. Forward set-up is finished.
* Push the trigger away from you, press and hold the set-up button for 1 second until the LED blinks three times/motor beeps three times. Reverse set-up is finished.
