Hi all, I wonder if someone can help with a completely baffling electric problem? I have just bought a Mad Bull for my son and we are on the electrics stage and it is not working as expected, I get steering but no throttle. I am pretty sure that it is the ESC that's the issue. The setup is as follows: Core RC - radio and receiver - new Tamiya TBLE-02S ESC - used in a previous car where it worked fine Tamiya Torque Tuned motor - used in a previous car where it worked fine Absima servo - new 3300mAh Ni-MH battery I have tried the following: The above setup with a new silver can motor - this didn't work The above setup with a LiPo battery - this didn't work The above setup but with a Hobbywing Quicrun 1060 ESC - this worked fine Put the above receiver in my GF-01 - this worked fine The Torque Tuned motor in another car - this worked fine At this point, I was certain it was the ESC so I tried another Tamiya TBLE - 02S ESC (brand new) - this also didn't work (steering but no throttle). With both ESCs, when I turn the radio on and then the ESC power switch, I get one green flash and when I squeeze the throttle I get the green light coming on until maximum throttle where it turns off. This all agrees with the manual. At this point I am completely stumped and have no idea what to do next other than buying another Hobbywing Quicrun 1060 ESC. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Many thanks
beefmuffin posted a topic in All things electric...Hey guys - Markbt73 has infected me a bit with enjoying the performance of the Novak Edge/Ballistic setup I now have in my DF-02 runner. Being a relative n00b to brushless I have no intrinsic sense as to whether I'd see similar performance by picking up one of Tamiya's entry-level BL motors and using it with a TBLE-02S I have just sitting NIP in a bin. To be honest I've been pretty underwhelmed by Tamiya's ESC's other than the TEU-101BK and TEU-302BK. All the others have hard-wired limited reverse capability and I can't seem to see any performance improvement between them (am I missing something?). Lucky for me, people think that the 101BK is 'less good' than the 102-105BK, so I regularly buy them whenever I can for anything under $20 NIP. So - basically, I'm skeptical that the TBLE-02S is even worth bothering with brushed or brushless. Except if I go and buy a $60-70 Tamiya BL motor (I'd only go for a matching motor - I like things that match) then I'd be wasting a lot of $ and still seeing lackluster performance. BUT maybe I'm wrong...! Has anyone tried one of these combos and have good things to say about it? Particularly relative to other BL systems you've used?
Afternoon all, For xmas my kids got a Grasshopper kit, its all built but now we are having issue with the receiver/speed controller, i've configured the ESC for a brushed motor but i am unable to get it to connect to the receiver. I've tried binding it but im not getting the red LED (im a complete novice when it comes to this) and now at a loss Many Thanks Steve http:// upload photoes
