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

  1. Connect the programming card and disable reverse
  2. Connect your ESC to Rx
  3. Set the servo reverse on your Transmitter so forward makes the motor spin
  4. If the car moves backwards reverse any 2 motor wires
  5. 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!
