You have to be able to program the esc, so look in the manual for instructions for that first.

Then check that your voltage cutoff is off, since youre running NIMH's, and then set it to the proper sensor/sensorless mode.

Make sure the ESC is calibrated properly to the radio and last but not not least, charge the battery

That's fine, I only found it odd that you would have heard of Hobbywing, Tacon i can understand, they are not a popular motor, I have had one, and it seemed like a great motor, the motor screw holes stripped out, but other than that, it was fine.


Now that the OP has said it is a hobbyKING, I have no idea, has to be something with the LVC for lipos ( he is running nimh in the video ) or a senor/sensorless program features that needs to be switched.
