Same result with Spektrum and Airtronics radio system. Tried new sensor wire with same cogging result.

What testing/diagnostics can I run on the ESC to check for problems?
Have you tried a new sensor wire or tried it without it?

@cobraracing: the ESC is one year old, worked till the last weekend
- throttle reverse
- connect all cables and full battery
- transmitter on
- hold the set key and then switch on the ESC and release set key
- ESC lights red - then flashes green(for one second) and then flahses red
- move the throttel sticke at the neutral position and press set key for one time
and now the LED flashes red

Maybe the 4600kv Motor killed the ESC???
Thx for helping!!!
So pity that no one answer, thx for not helping, good bye Hobbywing

Im sorry you feel that way......we have been trying to figure it out along with you and I know it can be frustrating. Maybe your next move should be to send it in and let them check it out for you, I would not be so quick to give up on Hobbywing, problems can occur with any company's units and do on a daily basis Im sure. Im sorry we could not solve this issue for you.........

For those of you that own an SCTE 2.0 and are looking into a HW ESC motor combo, I have came up with a part that allows for rear mounting your ESC without moving the battery forward at all. This eliminates the short sensor wire issue and also moves the CG back a bit, which also helps with nose diving and gaining rear traction all at the same time.
Vision Racing
is responsible for making the floating rear plate into a refined carbon fiber version and the quality is stellar! If anyone is interested, contact Jeff at vision racing and let him know you'd like one as well.

You can contact him via his site linked above, or by his email>[email protected]

Wow, you weren't kidding. The HW 4274sd is a monster in truggy too. Here is my Hobbywing powered TLR 8ight-T with electric conversion. Very happy with the power and smoothness.

Hello everyone. I have a hobbywing EZRUN 3656 4000KV motor. I recently opened up the motor to clean it out and when i took it out I used to much force and all the washers and bushings on the top and bottom shafts flew out. I saved a couple bushings and a washer but I am not sure how many bushings and washers go where and what size. Does anyone happen to have a diagram of what goes where?

Thank you.

I'm very glad you are happy with the choice. I hope its not too much motor....... the Hobbywing is a verry smooth set up.

Do you know what drive mode you are running the xr8 esc in?

full sensored .. or .. sensored/sensorless hybird?


Disregard that question, I see that option is not in the program options via the manual ---

Note 4:
1) Fwd=Forward, Rev=Reverse,Brk=Brake
2)The 14th, 16th and 17th items are reserved items. Most 4 pole motors on the market are suffering from the severe sensor interference now, for these motors, the “full sensored” mode can
easily cause drive errors and further result in abnormal operation of the ESC and motor or even get them burnt, so these functions have been temporarily shut down in the current version of
ESC firmwar
e. HOBBYWING will release some new 4 pole motors that can ensure the ESC works in “full sensored” mode soon, users can get access to those functions through firmware
upgrade then.

I bought the ESC at the end of july and it ran flawlessly for three or four races,It just quit and the motor acted like it was cogging at first,I tried another motor same thing,Now nothing numerous motors sensor wires etc,I had no issues till then now nothing,No three beeps when its supposed to arm and just a red light when the trigger is pulled,Now the hassle of returning and waiting to see what is the issue

Default External switch option?

I have run HW ESC's and all had an external power switch. I recently bought the Hobbywing Xerun 120A V3.1 Sensored Brushless ESC, but it has a built in switch.

This sounds nice but it is difficult getting to the switch without removing the body. Is there an external switch option for this ESC?

It would be nice to be able to lift the side of the body to turn the ESC on.
