I use to have one of these, but not now..... let me rack my memory!

To set radio:
Press FN then RADIO (5)
on the TX apply full throttle, then full brake, then let go (neutral) and wait! it will set itself!

TIME function
ESC can have different amp limits which kick in at different time from switch on (in seconds). Press FN then TIME then enter a number to represent seconds, then ENTER.

LIM function
This is the amp limit related to the TIME function. ie. with TIME 2 set at 60 and LIM 1 set at 80 you will have 80A for first 60 seconds from switch on. etc...to reset use 0 as an input or a very large value!! I think the LIM input value should be between 0-100.

SENS function
Press FN then SENS and then a number 0-9. This is the EXP response of the TX throttle trigger to the ESC response. 5 is linear, less than 5 is softer acceleration, greater than 5 is heavier acceleration.

BRK MIN/BRK MAX
Self explanitory for min and max brakes. I think the value should be between 10-100.

If you have the first generation ESC then you won't have an external on/off switch. There is a neat feature with this ESC that if you apply full brakes for over a certain numbers of seconds (I can't remember the number) the ESC will switch off!!!!! beware!!!

With the second generation 410k then holding the brakes will reset the timer function!

There may be slight variations from what I've written above....its been a long time since I used this ESC and I'm going from memory!!! So just play with it!!!

Sorry for the extra long post!!

it was a great little speedo, i loved the off function from the radio, just had to pull the car up somewhere safe and turn it off from the stand, no need to worry about it taking off.

Not many people know but it was actually developed from a little australian speedo manufacturer, in the early nineties called Purge, they had one quite similar in an even smaller case
