Re: sidewinder v3 problems

My guess is that the ESC dead band parameter is set too narrow.

From the Sidewinder V3 programming manual:

6. Dead Band
You may adjust the neutral throttle “width” of the controller with this setting. Smaller values make the controller enter forward or brake/reverse with a smaller movement of your throttle trigger for finer control. Be careful, some transmitters offer better resolution than others. If your ESC will not respond to “Neutral” throttle, make this setting larger.
Option 1:
Large - 0.1500 ms
Option 2:
Normal - 0.1000 ms
(Default)
Option 3:
Small - 0.0750 ms
Option 4:
Very Small - 0.0500 ms
Option 5:
Smallest - 0.0250 ms

[QUOTE=43;3011642]what should I set it do get rid of glitching?[/QUOTE

I would try the next larger value than what it is currently set at.

If that does not work, try the next larger setting from that, and so on until the glitching stops or you run out of dead band setting options.

You should also make sure that your throttle trim and sub trim are set to zero.

The manual explains how to globally reset all of the adjustable parameters available in the transmitter to the factory defaults.

Re: sidewinder v3 problems

By the way, is the DX2E that you have for sale the same model of radio you are having problems with? In your original post you said it was a DX2....there's a difference....

Whichever model of transmitter you have, start by resetting the transmitter to its factory default settings as previously recommended.
