I have two touring cars both with Tekin RS esc's.
One has a Trinity Pulse 17.5 T b/l motor, the other a similar Trinity Pulse 13.5 T b/l motor.
The reason that i mention the fact that i have 2 cars (essentially identical) is that what i'm about to query happens with both, and i can't find any info anywhere that gives me any kind of answer. I may have missed something somewhere, but i don't think so!
If i set up the motor type manually, then assuming my choice is brushless/forwards/brake, then the motor type selection (led 6) should show one led lit... which they do. So far so good!
If i then connect up with the firewire (i have installed v200) and in terms of the motor selection keep it the same (iow brushless/forwards/brake) and set all the other parameters to what i want, incl the latest additions of turbo boost and lag etc and save the settings and disconnect from the firewire, and now put either car on a stand, everything works as expected... the turbo effect is definately noticeable and the lag seems spot on.
However, and this is my query: If i now push the mode button the required 6 times and the set button once...to determine motor type (or 'check' motor type), then all seven leds are lit brightly and constantly. If i reset the motor type leds to only one lit (iow brushless/forwards/brake) then the turbo effect falls away and i'm left with a normal linear acceleration. If i reset the motor leds to seven lit then the turbo function returns.
So whilst everything works, i'm just confused by the led display.
I would hate to destroy a motor or esc by racing with an incorrect motor parameter indication that may result in failure or either or both.
A response to this would be much appreciated.
You say you disconnect the hotwire, but you don't that you've saved the application. must save the application. Save the application by clicking just below "Duel Mode" to hi-light "apply setting", then disconnect the Hotwire. Re check the version by clicking below that.
Useing v200 or 189, you may loose "Drag Brake" or any other setting. if you loose it go to a lower version you may get it back. I had problems on that situation. Upgraded to v198 and lost drag brakes, For about 2 months used it without drag brakes, pain in the okolei!!!! So I started from the beginning. Emailed Ty of Tekins, Advise was the motor(10.5 Redline), was brand new. Didn't think it was the motor. Went back to v180, which was the first version tekins was out with, that brought my Drag bakes back functioning. V189 & 200 willnot work for me?? I don't know!! I haven't tried yet. Just happy the get my DB functioning again with v180.
Good Luck!!! Tekins RS's(Pro) Darn good ESC. use on my 12th scale, Have on a T1 for Bashing, with a Bushless 3.5 Redline, It's insane!!!
