In that case it could be that you need to load a different firmware onto the card.
But I think the SCT Pro needs to be connected via the fan port, not the RX cable, so I would try that first. And even then, the connection will only work if there's a true neutral signal on the RX cable - any other signal will override the connection to the card in the fan port. Some receivers do that without problem, on others, you may have to unplug the RX cable.

Two trucks, all identical electronics except for motors. Airtronics radio.

One programs normal, the other I have to unplug the ESC wire from the receiver. Same firmware.

Thanks Alex
I had the same issue (in this thread). I unhooked the ESC from the Receiver and it worked. I have a Spektrum rx/tx setup. I was getting 'Connecting to ESC' and it wouldn't go away.

I have started experiencing a problem with my hobby wing Justock ESC. When I first give throttle input, the motor trembles and doesn't start until the throttle is pulled further. This has just started happening. I use the esc with a 17.5 touring car. I haven't overheated or over geared the esc. So I'm not sure why this problem has appeared. I have checked the following: replaced sensor wire, recalibrated the esc, reset the esc to default, changed motors. Nothing has fixed this cogging at the start of the throttle input.

I don't have a box to update. I was running the factory settings.

Have you tried running with no srnsor wire? You could have a bad replacement sensor wire???

I've tried with two other sensor wires now, yet the esc still has the same problem. I tried it without the sensor wire, it is slightly better, but still studders and won't spin the motor at low throttle.

I'm about to start my sct410.3 build when I finish the yeti xl for my wife this week, where is everyone buying these from? I was thinking the xerun pro that everyone seems to be running. I have the new mamba X set up for the yeti but I wanted to give something besides castle a try.

I have installed the hobbywing software on my laptop so I can connect the ESC to the program board then that connects to my laptop. I think I can see all the options and settings for the ESC

Lowest setting should be 85c. Which I believe is appx 160.

yep you are right. I used the program board and set the temp cut off to 85.

Whats weird is that if I connect the ESC to the program board then connect the program board to my laptop to run the HW set up software I do NOT get the option to set temp cut off to 85 the drop down menu does not show it.

Any ideas?
