Default Nosram Magnum reverse

Hi there,

Just bought one of these ESC's for my mini and include in the packet was a couple opf fuses. Could anyone please tell me what these are for. I know they go onto the motor but I was wondering what that actually do to the motor. At present I have a standard tin can motor in it, however in the very near future I'm looking to change that to the trinity renvenge of the monster horsepower pro motor.

Cheers

Do you mean capacitors?

They should be soldered to the motor - one from positive to the can, one from negative to the can, and a third (possibly larger) cap between positive and negative.

I have been told that some silver can motors now come with capacitors pre-mounted inside - you can't see them - I would probably solder the caps to be on the safe side.

The Trinity motor has pre-fitted capacitors.

whoops yes i did mean capacitors.

cool. i should have a trinity very soon.

having an ickle problem with the ESC however. when I intially connected it everything ran smooth, howevre after a short time of playing around forward became reverse and vica versa. Anyone got any ideas as to why this happens? also according to the instructions supplied when running in reverse it should only run for 8sec before switching to neutral, then you have to go into neutral before selecting reverse again. mine however just runs in reverse and stays that way. any ideas as to why this happens???

Cheers

I would do the setup procedure one more time - carefully.

But if it happens again, I would contact the dealer for assistance. But give it a chance or two first.

tried set up again today in the morning and it worked as it should, then as soon as I disconnected the battery to have a rest and went back to it later on it decided to work backwards again!!!!!!

I think I'm gonna take it to the shop where I bought it from as I think there is defo something wrong as its not going into neutral after 8 or so seconds in reverse.

Cheers
