I purchased a Multiplex EasyStar RTF as part of a project. As a first time flyer, the system is incredible, and I've learned a tremendous amount from it.
However, at some point I changed the stock settings on the ESC (or I fried it. The motor turns, but at a low thrust setting). It is a Mutliplex Multicont X-08. I've been scouring the net for a programming guide for this system, and I haven't come up with anything. The descriptions allude to a programming capability, but none of them state how to actually accomplish this.
I've been trying to "trial-and-error" the system. I just tried connecting the airframe battery pack while the RC unit has the throttle in the max position (this seems to be how every other ESC enters programming mode). My little unit just petulantly sits there until I bring the throttle to the idle position. Then it beeps, and allows the throttle to advance (again to the lower speed).
I've tried multiple battery packs, receivers, all to no avail. I do have a new ESC (I'm going to switch to LiPo's and a brushless motor soon), but I'd like to have this available.
Are all ESC's programmable?
