First of I need to apologise for the lack of new content that’s been published over the lat 12 months here on the site. As with all side projects every now and then the day job can get in the way and can end up eating all your spare time. I’m however pleased to say that our YouTube Channel has been growing from strength to strength over the last year and we’re slowly but surely growing.
We’ve got some great content planned for the next few months including a full review and upgrades of Losi Micro Crawler, the plan is for a total overhaul with a bit of custom fab thrown in allowing for small Lipo’s to be installed. All the parts for this are here, and the first part will be posted soon.
Our Tamiya TT-01 posts have always been popular and always seem to spark discussion, so we’ve got more TT-01 posts coming up. Just this weekend I’ve finished a total rebuild and install of a brushless system and Lipo in my TT-01, look out for the completed build pictures soon.
2013 is going to be an exciting year and we hope you enjoy the new content. Remember to follow us on Twitter to be updated when the new posts are published.
If you’ve been following our youTube updates, you will be well aware that our Tamiya TT-01 project has been making steady progress over the last few weeks. Now it’s time write our initial thoughts down and review our Tamiya TT-01E Subaru Impreza kit.
We’ve read around the inter webs a few guys ‘n’ gals who are having issues with the Etronix Brushless System, and it’s counterpart the Turnigy TrackStar ESC.
The issue seems to be that the system runs in reverse and seems impossible to correct without somehow disabling reverse as well. We managed to recreate the issue with our Etronix Brushless System and found a logically solution to the problem.
Just follow the steps below in order
Connect the programming card and disable reverse
Connect your ESC to Rx
Set the servo reverse on your Transmitter so forward makes the motor spin
If the car moves backwards reverse any 2 motor wires
Reconnect the ESC to the programming card and reenable reverse
Your system should now hopefully be behaving itself and you will be able to go forwards and backwards!
