    Default Need help figuring out how to set up brushless motors on clodbuster


    Members do not see advertisements
    I have a clodbuster with a cpe terminator chassis that has two decent brushed motors which work great but it's not as punchy as I need it to be so I'm going brushless. I bought a castle sidewinder 3 4600kv since I already have another one of those on a less frequently used stampede. I know I need a y cable for the escs but I'm confused as to how to bind and set up the motors. Do you bind them in one at a time or at the same time? and how do you know which motor needs to run in reverse? I use a spectrum dx4c dsmr transmitter with a sr310 receiver. Any help would be appreciated thanks.

    One esc goes into ch.2

    One esc goes into faux

    Channel mixing must be on

    Servo ch.1

    Battery needs the y

    I also suggest a bec pro if you dont have one already.

    Then up your servo coltage.

    Dont forget rrp pinions too!

    what's the significance of the bec pro? Is there a specific pitched pinion?

    No you will be using a Lipo and Lipo charger with your 2 ESC.

    I just happen to have one in the buy sell trade for a better deal anywhere else.

    You need a Lipo charger to too though.

    Robinson hard 13t 32p pinions.

    I dont suggest anything but rrp

    The bec will make your whole system perform better stronger and last longer.

    For a dual ESC clod with a power hungry servo its well worth it in the long run.

    yeah I have plenty of lipos and a charger already. I want to run both escs from one battery as I only have room for one 2s hard pack in the chassis. would the bec be replacing the escs or is that something else? I'm using it for organized racing and I'm not sure if that's allowed or not.

    and it's a hitec titanium gear servo, I'm sure it's power hungry it has a lot of torque and speed!

    Check ebay castle bec pro

    Read up and see if its for you.

    For a dual ESC dual motor power hungry servo truck I still suggest it, Its smoother and easier on all the whole system.

    A lot use deans or bullet for the lead connectors.

    The standard plug / Tamiya plug you pictured may melt on a brushless system.

    I have had one melt before but I'm not gonna be dogging on this one. I may go with traxxas connectors eventually but these are already connected to the escs.

    When binding do you have to Bing each esc one at a time?

    I recommend running both the speed controllers on one channel by using a servo Y harness. You can either disable the BEC if your ESCs allow it or remove the red wire from the servo Y harness. You will have to run a 4.8-6.0 volt receiver pack. This allows you to be able to run one battery for each motor and not cut your all ready low run time in half. If your brush less motors have advanced timing You'll have to re-time the reverse rotation motor so the front and rear have the same power curve.
