tekin rx8 help?

       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
ive got the quick tune kind of figured out...

mastered the #7 motor profile designed for the ve8.....(Thanks tekin)
but in this profile, its not looking like i can get rid of esc brakes to mix in my brake servo.
profile # 7 Brushless, For Reversed Motor Rotation Installs, Fwd/Brk/Rev Delay. (LED1-LED7 ON)

i had it working earlier, than calibrated the esc to my radio(should have done this firsttttttt) and now the servo sits lifeless...
i honestly thought i fried it and had to check.
the brakes on the esc are keeping it from moving is all.

is hotwire the only way to flick off the esc brakes?
ive tried google, but havent come up with the proper catch phrase to fill me in here...


theres the manual ive been reading, havnt seen a damn thing on mixing channels period.

anyone have some experience here?
im using an rx8, 1700 kv, 4s, and dx3r

aux=brake servo
throttle= esc power
spekky dsm2 nitro rx....8or9 inch antenna
dual xp 1015s

am i not sending 6v out? sounds like the most sense.

a few things ive tried...
flicking off all braking on the esc
swapping servos, channel wise to test for functionality

Hotwire is the only way. Had this issue trying to disable reverse as well.

the major problem is now gone, the braking servo is now fully active.
turned out it was the dsm2 rx.
trusy old sr3000 was the answer....

reverse is still there though, and now it fights the brakes...
so hotwire that out?
