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!
We’ve been trying to film some brushless footage of the Macnum for a while, and so far every attempt has been stopped by bad weather (rain), or mechanical gremlins meaning more spannering time. This attempt was caught on video, all 10 seconds of it. The servo doing strange things and becoming stuck in one direction, however, we hope to have something a little longer up soon…
Two wheel drive stadium trucks have been incredibly popular with bashers since Traxxas reinvented the genre with the Rustler, ever since they’ve been a fav with bashers who enjoy the quick steering and light weight agility they provide, the main question is, has Ansmann hit the spot with their budget rival; the Macnum.
Brushless motor and speed control systems are now more or less the standard when it comes to electric RC. A couple years back, prices were steep and options were limited, happily this has changed and now far more options are readily available.
