hmm it was pretty cold those days, maybe 15 degrees (celsius), and i was not really pushing it to the limit and TC spec comes with heatsink and fan preinstalled soi hardly can imagine that the damn thing burnt

ADPC mode is set to 2, initial brake is 0 and automatic brake 1

But if you have any other motor that you can try then try it , it maybe is a motor prob.
no i did not change the timing of the 4.5T, i should receive a Vortex 3.5 in some days and check whether its the motor or not. I dont really experience any glitching, its just that the leds sometimes flicker at neutral position.

Don't want to scare you but if you experience this only at FULL throtle then it is speedo' problem!!

I had my ISTC (nosram) burnt at the second battery after all this that you describe...
well... you scare me i actually do not experience this "flickering behavoiur" at full throttle only, but also when slowly accelerating. and even better, there is one more strange situation: Sometimes, the rotor stops and when i hit throttle again nothing happens except the MODE LED blinking red+yellow and the SET LED is constantly blue.

I tried a lot of things, even switch from spektrum DSM to normal FM radio to see if there is any difference...

So you think the speedo is broken? Should i disassemble the motor and check if there's something broken? This is my first brushless season so i have no idea where to start

thank you very much for your help!

Hey oliver

i've seen that before, it was a bad sensor connection, so check that the sensor cable is ok. Otherwise it could be a bad hall sensor inside the motor! In which case you have to send it in for service. best way to check this is to try it with another motor.

hope this helps.

HI OMOSER

I think is the motor problem, in Hong Kong , the first batch X11 4.5t have some motor issue, someone broken just a few second racing, someone broken a few pack, someone have problem like your case. We sent all the problem motor to our distributor but I dont know motor have warranty or not. Just waiting the distributor feed back.

Hi, all of the problems are related with motors? Nothing with the esc? Thanks.

you said that sometimes rotor stops. at this point if you pull the throtle nothing happens right??? if simultaneously , pull the throttle and push the car , will it start turning???

Even if you open the motor you won't find anything , something missfuctions maybe the inside sensor of the motor!!

But if you have any fridthat has a BL and works , try your motor with his speedo and your speedo with his motor. it will be easy to understand what is wrong.

But i would like you to answer my previous question cause i had the prob i described....

yes exactly, and at the same time the MODE LED is blinking red+yellow and the SET LED is constantly blue, maybe this is some kind of error code??

hmm maybe it's really the motor, now that you say it i think the motor sounds different than in the beginning... thanks for the tip! I will try to get hold of another motor and see what happens I'll keep you posted

Read your instruction`s .....


The codes are listed ....

Look for the multi-protection system code...

hmm there is only one thing about TSD in the instructions, only the Set LED would (should?) flash in this case.
