I am having a cogging issue only at initial throttle with my XERUN Xtreme Stock. I have tried 2 motors, 3 sensor cables and different ESC settings and firmware including blinky, mod and stock but all have the same problem only under light throttle. Once past this it runs fine.

I am running HW USB Liink 3.4 SW with a old 2 in 1 Programming box. ESC is HW427_1.0 and I have been running v3_508_No_Timing.

Bought the ESC second hand so hoping this isn't a hardware issue. Any advice would be appreciated.

There is no newer software available. The box works only with the older version ( V1.08) but not with the newer version (V1.13). Or is this version only for the Multifunction box and not for the 2in1 prof. box?

What motor are you using?

thank you so much
This setting has nothing to do with drag brake, it should only affect the overall brake power at the 2 brake switch points from what I have experienced. Drag brake and disengage slope will affect drag brake.

Tried 2 17.5 motors. one is a reedy sonic mach 2 and the other is a brand new turnigy. Both run fine off my other ESC (another HW) and both have the same problem.

if I turn up the boost setting from 15 percent to say 25 percent what exactly does this do does it put more power to the motor or is it rpm based to get a little more top end speed running 25 pinion 71 spur

It's adjustable with you program box. Depending on what esc you have also . But you should be able to put it wherever you want it in the rpm range or you can put it at full throttle.

i have the v 3.1esc I understand what you are saying just wondering what the boost settings do if I raise the boost to 25 percent if that puts more power to the motor The Hobbit wing owners manual on this ESC is not very good at explaining anything or when would be the time to use it for a newbie new to this ESC. this competition ESC manual is not very good thanks for your help

Sounds like it may be the unit. It's too bad you got it used. You can send it in for repair but I don't think it will be under warranty since you are the second owner, but their repair prices are reasonable.

I had the same problem.

Can any one from HW please let us know if the V3.1 can handle a 4 pole 540 in a 4wd SCT? I love all my HW gear and was wondering if it would be possible. After looking around I have seen some people mention it might be possible but no concrete evidence.

For arguement sake, lets say its a 4600kv, 2s, SCTE (heavy truck, high kv motor, lower voltage).

No its best to use a SCT Pro for 4 poles.

We were trying them but some were having problems. I would agree with Fastpete, use the SCTPRO.

the boost is a form of timing applied by the esc, which you see as power from the motor. With the v3 you can indicate a rpm range that it is applied in and a slope rate it is applied at. As a newbie, be careful applying the boost (which is usually stated in degrees, not percent), as it will add heat to the motor and esc. Start with none, then increase as you see fit, while still measuring temps of motor and esc.

What are the problems you are having?
Spec looks nearly identical for the ESCs on the Hobbywing site:

120A V3.1
120A/760A burst
2S= 3750Kv or greater for suitable motor

Sct Pro
120A/760A burst
2S= 6000Kv or less for suitable motor

BECs are both 6v/3A

I though main difference is 120A V3.1 has many more programming options, and is smaller in size.

I was planning on using using 120V3 ESC on 2S w/ 3750KV motor.
Will this not work correctly?

You and I think alike. I was looking at the same specs and thinking the same thing. Was it more a problem with the TenShock motors? If the V3.1 wasnt a viable option I'd really just get the full blown 150a unit than the SCT Pro.
