Note: As the flight pack battery voltage/cell count is auto-detected by the ESC, it is advised to only begin a flight with a fully charged battery.  Starting a flight with a mostly discharged pack will lead to errors in the ESC properly applying the low voltage cut-off programing.

Programing Instructions

Never program your model with the propeller attached as serious injury (from a propeller strike) can occur.  PLEASE REMOVE THE PROPELLER FROM YOUR MODEL NOW PRIOR TO ENTERING PROGRAMING.

1. Connect your motor and receiver to the speed controller, but do not connect the battery yet.

2. FIRST turn on your transmitter with the throttle stick in the FULLY ADVANCED/ON POSITION. (Please Note: Most Futaba transmitters have the throttle channel reversed by default.)

3. NOW connect the flight pack battery.  The ESC will immediately go into programing mode sounding off the first sequence of beeps.  Each sequences of beeps corresponds to a program set point and repeats only once (though the ESC will cycle through the programing choices continuously until one is either selected or the unit is powered off).

4. To select a program set point, wait for the desired sequence of beeps to begin, then move the throttle stick to the FULLY RETARDED/OFF POSITION – you will hear a long confirmation beep indicating the set point was accepted.

5. Each time a program set point has been selected, the ESC will exit programing (indicate this with the same long confirmation beep) – then after several seconds the ESC will re-arm emitting the proper tone for your battery selection.  To change another program set point, repeat this process beginning again at Step 1.

Program Set Points (multiple beeps will have a short pause between them)

beep (pause) beep  | cell type LiPO* (3.0V/Cell slow down 2.9V/Cell Cut-Off)

beep-beep (pause) beep-beep | cell type NIMH (0.72V/Cell Cut-Off)

beep-beep-beep (pause) beep-beep-beep | brake** enable / disable*

(* indicates default programing)

(**A note about determining the current state of brake disable/enable – if the brake is currently enabled you will feel resistance (beyond the typical magnetic cogging) when attempting to spin the motor can.  If the motor resists turning, brake is currently enabled.)
