right, so iv already posted my troubles in the electric section ... but i figured the more the merrier.
i have wired up my new esc to my new motor as described, happy days !!!!! but ! ... it only runs in reverse, so i reset the esc ... still in reverse ... swapped the orange and yellow over .. and it doesnt do anything execpt jitter and then the esc gets hot so i turnt it off straightaway.
this is what it looks like as of yet ...
if anyone can shed light then let me know .. my local ( 45min drive ) model shop cannot do it for me while i wait, he doesnt understand the pain in the arse it is to go and comeback then go again to pick it up lol.
If you put the car in reverse on your handset does the car go forward , if it does go into the settings on your hand set and reverse the throttle servo settings .
Have you tried revering the throttle on the transmitter like you would if a servo was going the wrong way it may not do anything the other way as the esc might be in brake mode
Wrecking ball beat me too it lol
iv tried the switch on the handset, iv tried everything im stuck in a rutt ... other than going to the shop which i dont wanna do coz its even more money spent on the poxy thing, plus he wont show or tell me what he did if he does manage to fix it lol
Post some more info about your setup such as esc, motor and model your using it in.
I see you have wired your motor directly to the esc. Get your self some bullet connectors so you can easily dissconect the motor.
Have you made sure the motor is connected propley with the esc.
Swapping the wires over will change the rotation of the motor, so try again swapping different cables. The stuttering you are getting from the motor is either one of the 3 cables is not connected or they are not connected propley.
Hope that helps.
the vehicle im using is an FTX CARNAGE.
i have the LRP SPX stock spec esc which will also run a modified motor upto 4t.
my motor is the LRP X20 modified 4t
i have a savox servo which is irelevant.
i was advised to swap the orange and yellow wires over, which as pictured are in the "swapped" state. when i wired it correctly as per the instruction book, the motor ran absolutely spot exept in ran in reverse.
now it just jitters, this could be down to my poor soldering skills you say ? this is the first bit of solderig iv done since school lol, and that was 6 years ago haha.
anyone know where i can buy some orange, yellow and blue wires and bullet connectors ?
On sensored esc and motor the only way it will work properly is the configuration in the wiring diagram. Especially lrp.
Swapping two wires will only work on sensorless equipment.
If it is stuttering in the correct config now you have messed around I fear you may have done some damage to the electrics.
Hope you get it sorted buddy.
correct it is sensored .. but in the correct configuration it runs sweet only its in reverse. i have no idea lol
if it was me I would, start again, remove all soldering and old solder. resolder as neat as you can (or ask a mate who has a little more experience) follow the instructions to the letter.
Once its all soldered up nice and neat, rebind your transmitter (if using 2.4 ghx) make sure you follow the esc instructions for transmitter set up. Then if its all working cut the wires in half and add bullets to aid removal of motor/esc or both.
Failing that, there may be someone local to you who can help, maybe pay a visit to your local club and seek advice. In my experience some local model shops care more about your money than really helping you out and will not tell you how to solve the problem because if it happens again then they can take your money twice.
Hope this helps
