Mine is a bit strange about reverse....if going forward you must break to standstill and then reverse again to go reverse. However sometimes when standing still and trying to reverse it doesn't go backwards until quite alot of throttle used and sometimes it goes backwards very smooth instantly when using reverse.Can't find it in the manual, but on the Kraton V2 do you have to press brake twice to engage reverse? And if so, why is this? Thanks in advance for the help.
I found that once stopped leave the trigger centered for a couple seconds then go to reverse. I had the same problem until I saw someone post this somewhere else. Hope this helps.Can't find it in the manual, but on the Kraton V2 do you have to press brake twice to engage reverse? And if so, why is this? Thanks in advance for the help.
No indicator that I know of. The BLX185 ESC has a two stage cutoff. At I believe 3.5 there is a noticeable slowdown then full cutoff at 3.2. I haven't gone below the first stage slowdown.just got mine today also the same was also wondering is there a indicator for when my LiPo is low on the beast.
cheers guys took it out for first run before am really impressed just trying to get my head around the charging of the lipos now lol complete newbie
Yeah it's crazy but got to admit am loving it the guys on here are top aswell really helpfulCheers for the help guys - thought it would be normal haha. Assume the pause is to protect the gears, etc.
Got my Kraton last Wednesday. Exact same as you, complete newbie haha! Didn't realise there was so much to learn about batteries and charging either!
Newb here as well but I was curious could it be that this reverse delay is intentional from Arrma? Wouldnt it reduce strain on drive train especially the spur and pinion gear.. just my noob two cents... lol
Thanks will look into grabbing the card yet again thanks for letting me know enjoy your bashing .The programming card worked great... after I learned how to plug the darn thing in. One wire plugs into the esc fan port, then the signal wire from the esc also plugs into the card. After a quick search online I discovered that the manual that came with the Kraton gives all of the programming options; I pulled this pic from another thread - https://arrmaforum.com/threads/kraton-v2-esc-programming-with-card.1325/#post-16601
As you can see there are only 5 options and only 2 that we would be interested in - Punch and Brakes. I've only got 4s for time being and I decided to put the punch on 9, it's still manageable for me and much snappier, but I'll most likely dial it down for 6s. The card was handy, but for such limited tuning options I would try using the beep system first as described in the manual, that system worked well for me in the past with the SC8.
My Kraton also acts up going into reverse and had a weird creep at zero throttle that I couldn't trim out. I should have tried re-calibrating the remote, but I had anther remote I preferred on the shelf and dropped it in instead. The creeping is gone, but reverse is still finicky. I just twitch the throttle into reverse until it finally decides to move. It looks like we may be stuck with the sticky reverse engagement for now.
