Program all functions to fit your specific needs.

1. Brake Setting

2. Battery Type(LiPo or NiCd/NiMh)

3. Low Voltage Cutoff Setting

4. Factory Default Setup Restore

5. Timing Settings (to enhance ESC efficiency and smoothness)

6. Soft Acceleration Start Ups (for delicate gearbox and helicopter applications)

7. Governor Mode (for helicopter applications)

8. Motor Rotation(clockwise\counterclockwise)

9. Switching Frequency

10. Low Voltage Cut-off Type (power reduction or immediate shutdown)



Wires Connection:

The speed controller can be connected to the motor by soldering directly or with high quality connectors. Always use new connectors, which should be soldered carefully to the cables and insulated with heat shrink tube. The maximum length of the battery pack wires shall be within 6 inches.



POWERING UP THE ESC FOR THE FIRST TIME ANDSETTING THE AUTOMATIC THROTTLE CALIBRATION

Features Automatic Throttle Calibration to attain the smoothest throttle response and resolution throughout the entire throttle range of your transmitter. This step is done once to allow the ESC to “learn and memorize” your Transmitter’s throttle output signals and only repeated if you change your transmitter.

1. Switch your Transmitter ON and set the throttle stick to its maximum position.

2. Connect the battery pack , receiver and motorto the ESC. Wait for about 2 seconds, the motor will beep for twice, then put the throttle in the minimum position, the motor will also beep, which indicates that your ESC has got the signal range of the throttle from your transmitter.

The throttle calibration is set and your ESC is ready to use.



ENTERING THE PROGRAMMING MODE


Switch your Transmitter ON and set the throttle to its maximumposition.
Connect the battery pack to the ESC.
Wait until you hear two short beeps (●● ●● ●● ●●) confirming that the ESC has now entered the programming mode.
If the throttle stick is left in themaximum position beyond 5 seconds, the ESC will begin the sequence from one function and its associated setting options to another. (Please refer to the table below to cross reference the functions with the audible tones).
When the desired tone for the function and setting option is reached, move the throttle stick down to its minimum position. ESC will emit two beeps (**) confirming the new setting has been stored.
The ESC only allows the setting of one function at a time.

Therefore should you require making changes to other function, disconnect the battery pack and wait 5 seconds to reconnect the battery and repeat the above steps.

Trouble


Possible Reason


Solution






Motor doesn’t work, there`s no audible tones while servos work properly after powering up ESC.


The ESC throttle calibration has not beenset up.


Set up the ESC throttle calibration.














Motor doesn’t work and no audible tone emitted after connecting the battery. Servos are not working either.


Poor/loose Connection between battery Pack and ESC.


Clean connector terminals or replace connector.


















No power


Replace with a freshly charged battery pack






Poor soldered connections (dry joints)


Re-solder the cable connections






Wrong battery cable polarity


Check and verify cable polarity






ESC throttle cable connected to receiver in the reverse polarity


Check the ESC cable connected to the ESC to ensure the connectors are in the correct polarity.










Faulty ESC


Replace ESC






Motor doesn’t work and no audible tone emitted after connecting the battery BUT servos are working. Or Motor doesn’t work after powering up the ESC. An alert tone with single beeping tones followed by a short pause (* * * *) is emitted.


Poor / loose connection between ESC and motor


Clean connector terminals or replace connectors






Burnt motor coils


Replace motor






Poor soldered connections(dry joints)


Re-solder the cable connections










The battery pack voltage exceeds the acceptable range.


Replace with a freshly charged battery pack

Check battery pack voltage


















Motor doesn’t work after powering up the ESC. An alert tone with continuous beeping tones (****) is emitted.


The throttle stick is not in the minimum position at power up.


Move the throttle stick to the minimum position.










Motor doesn’t work after powering up the ESC.ESC emits two audible tones followed by short beeps (●●●●●●●●)


Reversed throttle channel caused the ESC to enter the programming mode.


Enter the servo reverse menu on your transmitter and reverse the throttle channel. Note: For Futaba radios set the throttle channel to Reverse.










Motor runs in reverse rotation


Wrong cables polarity between the ESC and the motor.


Swap any two of the three cable connections between the ESC and the Motor or access the Motor Rotation function via the ESC programming mode and change the pre-set parameters.






Motor stops running in flight.


Lost throttle signal


Check proper operation of the radio equipment.

Check the placement of the ESC and the Receiver and check the route of the receiver’s aerial and ESC cables to ensure there is adequate separation to prevent RF interference.

Install a ferrite ring on the ESC’s throttle cable.














Battery Pack voltage has reached the Low Voltage Protection threshold.


Land the model immediately and replace the battery pack.






Possible bad cable connection


Check and verify the integrity of the cable connections






Motor restarts abnormally ESC Overheats


Possible RF Interference at the flying field.


The normal operation of the ESC may be susceptible to surrounding RF interference. Restart the ESC to resume normal operation on the ground to verify recurrence. If the problem persists, test the operation of the ESC at a different flying field.














Inadequate Ventilation


Relocate the ESC to allow better ventilation










Servos drawing too much current and over loading the ESC.


Use servos that are adequately sized for the ESC. The maximum BEC current drawn should be within the BEC limits.






Over sized motor or prop


Reduce Prop size or resize the motor

Mmmmmmmmm,yummy,spam!

No I think he posted this as a response to Bruces video in which he could find no instructions about how to program the esc in the penguin he's reviewing.
Dennis when you post a document like this you need to open it in a word processor first and edit it to conform to the original format, then, when it's right post it.

Here's the link that he didn't provide to those instructions so you can see them in proper format:
