View Full Version : got me a little problem

08.14.2009, 11:03 PM
So my RX8 and 1550kv motor has been sweet, until today. I just redid my wiring since I moved the esc, and it worked great for a while. I started to jump the truck and took a weird landing and it stoped responding. Then after a few seconds it starts to move again but only for 5 feet. I could turn it off and back on and it would only move 5 feet again. Now when it trys to arm I dont get any beeps but the leds on the esc say its armed, but no go. So any idea? I checked all of the wires and they are good.

Have you tried running it sensorless? Maybe they were damaged in the wierd landing some how...

Re-load/update the firmware, perhaps....?

i reset it, but there is something wrong since it happened after the jump

Well then... I guess you really knocked something loose. Is it OK by Tekin for you to open the case? Maybe it's obvious what's wrong inside...

ya idk, but the screws on my case came striped lol

Well if you stripped the case you've got no choice but to send it in.

I think he meant the screws were already stripped when he got it.

sent it out today, whats your turn around time right now tekin?

I've got exactly the same trouble as you described with my new RX8
A run of 3 minutes/2 jumps then nothing else. The ESC seems to work as LEDs are OK except no more beeping during the power ON.
How did you manage with TEKIN ? Did you sent it back ?
