My understanding is that only changing timing/boosting settings would make esc non-blinky. Is this a glitch in a latest firmware update or something expected?

Thank you for your responses!
The softening values are timing changes. They work by reducing timing at low RPMs. They're not legal for blinky rules which is why it stops blinking.

That makes sense. So, using the XR10 Stock Spec
2S as an example, what programming changes can be made for the ESC to still run in Spec/"Blinky" mode?

In regards to the SSR and SR modes. from HW:

Hello,

At this time we do not have a direct answer, but more than likely, this will be addressed. The topic has been brought up enough now, that it's time to come up with a solution.

In the end, faster frame rates for the ESC don't really change much. For the Servo, yes, there are some advantages, but overall, the throttle/ESC side of things, does not really need "Faster" or "more" frame rate resolution.

Pretty much anything that doesn't change the timing. Here's what's in the manual:


Anything that doesn't talk about angular degrees (or the related settings eg boost activation) is fine to change for blinky.

In other words, with the exception of 1A, and all group 4 & 5 items, everything else can be changed?

Not quite, 2F and 2G are the softening values that change the timing. I don't think 1A is related to blinky but it's a common rule that you're not meant to have reverse in a race.

So I am going to rebuild my ZX5 FS for my 3 year old to start RC. Yet I am trying to stay on a budget, given I have another son, and his R/C takes up a bit more of the budget.

As such I am looking at using the Quicrun 10 ESC Sensored, and having read the description, was curious as I have the LCD Program box, will I be able to use it on the ESC or do I actually need the LED Program Card??

Thank you.

The QUICRUN 10BL120 ESC references the LED program card in the manual.

Yeah, was just curious if the LCD box works as well with it. I have not head back from HW USA as of yet.

1A is obvious. As for 2F & 2G, understandable. However, regarding everything '4' & '5', I guess a better way of putting it would have been this:

1) Will changing ANY of these remove the "blinky" mode?
2) Are there any '4' or '5' items that CAN be changed without removing "blinky", and, if so, which '4' and/or '5' items can be changed?

You might be able to change for example the start and end boost RPM range without disabling blinky but those settings won't do anything unless the boost timing values are not zero. Effectively, there's nothing in 4 and 5 that you can change and get any effect while staying in blinky.

Also I just checked. 1A doesn't affect blinky.

Default Hobbywing XR10 Justock low voltage protection problem

Have been giving the Sakura some shake down drives the past few days, getting all my settings and options to my liking. I'm still relatively new. The low voltage protection is set to be activated at 3.4 volts, but it seems to be coming on at 3.7. If the battery is over 3.7, the car runs fine, but at 3.7 it goes into low voltage protection mode and slows the car to 30 percent power and eventually stops.

Is this normal? Maybe I am missing something here, have been going over the instruction sheet a bunch of times.

Edit: so upon further reading, it looks like the protection will kick in if the voltage under load is at or below 3.4 volts, does this sound correct? The battery is currently at 7.26 volts and 3.63 volts per cell.

At 3.7 it's probably giving you a warning by slowing down and then at 3.4 volts shuts down. My guess. I never run my batteries that low to find out.
