Default Tekin R1 Issue

Hello,
Tonight was my first time out with my XXTCR, Tekin R1, Trinity Pulse combo. The starts were lack luster, but near the end of the first pack, everything went to hell.. The motor would not turn, and the ESC was flashing LED 1-2 6-7. I looked in the manual to see what the code meant, to no avail..

Anyways, was does LED 1,2,6,7 flashing mean?

I think its the "wrong motor" error, is there anyway you can try a diffrent motor?? I got that when a wire disconected from the esc, but I didn't see it because I had heatshrink over it.

also, just from experiance, sensored motors only work so-so with sensorless escs.

its the wrong motor error, check to see that its in the right mode, and all the wires are hooked up.

Led's 1,2 & 6,7 being lit indicates wrong motor type. If you check and you're set on the right motor type than you might have a bad phase in either the motor or the esc. Try hooking it up to a different motor first. IF you hook it up correctly to another Brushless motor and you still have the led's lit you need to send it in for repair.

[email protected] if you need more help.
