I believe this might be your problem. LVC might not be calibrated correctly in your esc. I'm almost certain it won't run on a single 2s. If you have tried to run it on 4s, could be one of the batteries is the issue.I'm running (2) 2S. Truck came with a jump lead for single use.
This is what made me think that you tried 2S only, that can actually kill the ESC under load but I could be wrong and your writeup wasn't all that detailed.That's what I thought until Support told my it was the ESC. I tried two different 2S packs. Smart 50C 5000mAh. Starting to think I should try a third.
Sorry let me clarify, I have tried running a single 2S, tried (2) separate packs in single mode. From the first power on it was running dual 2S' perfectly. N
I just got my replacement. If you haven't gotten a tracking number by now I would reach out to them. They said a month and I got it in less than a week.I feel you totally mine went out 3 weeks after getting it and I'm still waiting for a replacement. I talked to someone a few days ago and they told me I might not get it this time. They got a shipment or will get one this week. But I may not get it it might be the next shipment midmay. For paying what we did I think thsts crap. Sorry happened to you too bro.
I ran it on the bench with 2S at pulse throttleDid you try to run it with only one 2s batt in the truck or not? We need clarification on that.
@jkflow You reminded me that I really should RTFM. Last time I had an RC it was a Blackfoot in "88. Times have changed. Much appreciated the input. Gonna take a step back, hence my other post.. I have a new ESC that I am hesitant to install, not trying to fry another one LOL. Brother is working on a budget LOL@damiyo
Like we stated, you must run both packs in series i.e. 4S. On 2S you can actually permanently damage your ESC, worst case.
In addition, when you performed a reset on the ESC you erased all valid setting including the valid throttle range. You have to perform a throttle range adjust or the ESC will have no idea what you are trying to do.
You have to put trim to zero and throttle to 100% prior doing the throttle range (calibration) adjust per manual. Right now your ESC is doing everything right and is not defective, based on my understanding of the issue.
feel free to ask for help but Youtube has videos as well. Search for Firma ESC calibration or look at below.
