I pickd up my granite blx I tooke it out the box changed the included battery and I can drive it for about 10 second then it comes up with the low voltage on the esc
I'm curious to how you got on. I am also in UK and have just got a Granite BLX.
Is there a novice guide to checking the settings on the esc? Im am new to all this and am struggling to work it out from the included instructions & cant find any videos on youtube. Any help would be appreciated.
What battery are you trying to run? And if I struggle to explain well, @ajdragon helped me awhile back
I think LiPo setting is stock I believe for Blx
To set NiMH you you have to turn on the ESC while pressing that set button next to the ESC on switch where it will beep.
One beep = LiPo mode (low voltage cutoff @3.2v)
2 beeps = NiMH mode
3 beeps = no cutoff
There are other beeps but those are for throttle I believe... which I haven't tested.
hopes this helps!
That was probably lipo cutoff, so yea, program it to 2 beeps and that should be good for your NIMH batteriesThank you.
I am running stock NiMH 4600 (8.4v) at the moment. I did buy a 3300 NiMH (8.4v) just as a stop gap. But tried running them yesterday and the esc was flashing blue after about 5 mins on the 4600 and after a couple of mins on the 3300.
So I actually want the three beeps to run on the nimh battery. Because I tried the two beeps like I understood from the manual and low voltage kicks in. I wanted to actually say something on here because there are no how to vids on this product like I have always been able to find with my Traxxas trucks.You want 3 beeps turn the esc on while holding the set button.. it will beep once letting you know your in tuning mode, in variable one. Hold the set button again it will beep and you can change the setting in that variable you want 3 beeps in variable one. Turn it off and on and try it.
It's def in LiPo mode, stupid when they send it with a NiMH. It will smoke that battery and Arrma will suggest a LiPo so now instead of a 400 dollar investment you need to sink a couple more hundred to use it like it was intended
Ok so I got mine to work with an nimh. I had to reset the esc to factory settings first to clear all of my mistakes then pay close attention to the variable mode you're actually in. That being one beep for battery. Then make that beep twice for nimh. Hold down on the button to confirm it. Then power off to save the setting. Hope this helps someone.So I actually want the three beeps to run on the NiMH battery. Because I tried the two beeps like I understood from the manual and low voltage kicks in.
