4.9 is "preset" by factory and you should play with this
by 1.1.5 pc software, there is 3 modes that you can use,
mode 3 for modified, mdoe 6 or 8 for spec/stock racing, but
you can COPY mode 8 to 3 for lipo 2S racing or 6 to 3 for
5 cell racing in stock/spec class
With mode 8 be carefull, you can fire your engine
Start from 6.5FDR or higher and check temp.
There is howto: http://binahof.spaces.live.com/blog/...ry?sa=87399054
or there:: GM Brushless
, same story
From my experience, set 4.9 soft by 1.1.5 and try change something by 1.3.6 = bad work,
maybe 1.3.6 do something bad ... or maybe I do something bad
At 7.2 you can have 8 profiles set by 1.3.6 pc software,
and all profiles can be totally different
Read Martin's spec/stock howto for this version
mode 8 IMHO is for "burning" and made a lot of TEMP
IMHO mode 8 over 3 is better for 13.5T/Lipo2S.
Just set 6V, if you have good LIPO and need power you can set 5.8V,
don't go under, you break lipo.
ad 3: Yes, some pages ago I wrote about it:
if you switch by TX to mode 8, download data to PC, set voltage cut off
just send data to ESC again, if you do it this, ESC store settings
for this mode and keep them until you do factory reset or change them
again by pc software.
ad 4: Did you read manual? If you set, example mode 8, by TX,
ESC store transmitter data and keep them, when you do MOVE
on trothlle to max forward and max reverse, ESC "Learn" where
end point is.
I don't remember that 1.1.5 soft can "store" TX data in file ... but 1.3.6 can
and if can, you can do like this, switch mode by TX, load data
to PC, load data from GDA file (from another user) to PC program,
load your TX data and send it to ESC. And it works with 7.2/7.6(older
GM like 95, 100 ..) with 1.3.6 pc soft.
Btw, small tip for you, check 100% EPA on TX, if futaba, set
reverse on Th, then turn on ESC, push and HOLD buton on
ESC, esc made some bip tone, then, 1st max F, 2nd max R, and count,
1,2,3,4,5,6, hold in 6 place, release finger from esc buton,
and hold th until esc send some bip tones. Release finger from TH,
you are set.
If you hold finger on esc too long, esc made some bip tones and ONE LONG BIP, ESC is reset to factory settings
maybe i should wrote manual or something, and this should be put on the top,
all is wrote in this thread.
