Default tekin rs gen2 with hotwire

Why am I getting the 3,4, and 5 flashing lights on this dam esc. I read it is locked and spec mod so I needed thehotire to unlock it, but it still flashes the same lights.

The 3,4,5 LED's indicate the esc is in Locked Spec mode and in order to remove it from that mode you must plug it into the hotwire and uncheck the locked spec box under the timing tab.

So when I go to the timing tab I see a message...this esc is a rs gen2 spec. So does this mean it will always blink 3 4 5?

The RS GEN2 is always locked in spec mode, it's a SPEC esc. You only get Locked Blinky spec mode as an option.

If you have a Hotwire on PC in throttle section if your hover over tab there's display that explains what each option does and I was looking the other night there was one you set lower which makes it hit slower through the pull
