I realise it's not a common brand or well known but I was hoping you guys could just apply esc logic to this and let me know if the esc is fubar or if something else is wrong.
Here is a video of what it does
I just put a 21T pinion on the motor as it had a slightly unmeshed big ass 26T. I thought this was the cause of my acceleration problems but it turns out I was wrong.
When I first put the 21 on, I ran it off the ground and it appeared fine. I then ran it outside on our driveway for a little bit but after 30 seconds it slowed right down and started juttering like the battery was flat. Also when trying to drive straight it would turn left, I adjusted steering trim but kept doing it.
Took off the shell and discovered that by throttling for some reason the steering is turning left.... wierd!
If I lightly press throttle the esc led will be solid, once I full throttle it will start flashing and thats when juttery throttle and steering starts.
I thought maybe for some reason the esc might have lost programming so I reprogrammed it using normal esc procedure to no avail.
I tested voltage at the battery (1800mah 7.2v) 7.4 when idle
It drops to 3.5v when throttling and continues to drop if I hold the throttle.
I tested at the motor when throttling and I am getting .5v so that explains why it starts juttering.
So.... my conclusion... esc is fubar, what do you guys think?
Thanks in advance
