I am hoping you guys can answer a few questions for me.
I tried to flip through this thread to see if I could find my answers, but I didnt see what I am after.
I have the castle field link, after reading all the instructions and connecting my MMP to my computer, I picked the the software version v1.26 per the ROAR approved ESC list.
I then selected forward w/o reverse.
I have no idea what else to change so I uploaded those settings to the MMP.
After Calibrating my 3PKS per the instructions, I found the ESC continues to be in reverse mode. I pulled throttle, motor spins correctly, hit the brakes, get brakes, but when I return to neutral, then back to brakes I get reverse. Which would suggest I am in the reverse lock out setting.
So I connected my field link to the MMP with out my computer. Set the red LED to forward only then turn off switch, plug back into my RX and find I still have reverse. I attempted this several times but still cant get it out of reverse mode.
Am I not saving the change properly?
Also, what settings should I be looking at for the 17.5 class rubber tire on carpet TC?
Any one have any suggestions?
I don't know if it is just some of the field link cards or what but I have seen the same thing with a buddy of mine. He has a field link that works great with one controller and the other will reset it to factory defaults every time its plugged in. I would go back to using just the computer to update the controller. As for settings with no timing here is what I would try.
Change the controller to sensored only mode.
Run start power on high
Drag brake 30%
Punch control Off
Then I would start with a FDR of 4.0 and depending on your track you might need to go down to 3.6 or up to 4.2. I would ask around to see what others are running.
