12 Simplified steps to programming your MGM using only your transmitter - Shaun
Pour yourself a drink,
(I find that good bottle of wine or a tall cold screwdriver work real well) find some good music
(Rock, jazz or blues – absolutely NO RAP or Country music aloud) and get ready to have some fun..
Not to sound like your “dad”
on this step but you really should remove your pinion gear before you get started, it just makes life easer and puts the thought of it tacking off out of your mind, remember your drinking, so simplify life tasks..
Going into “programming mood”
first pickup your transmitter with the throttle position in max throttle and turn it on.
now turn on your RX and wait for the for three beeps and or the LED light blinks 3 times (either or), once it blinks 3 times “quickly move the throttle to full brake (you have 3 sec) once it’s on in full brake it will blink 1 time, then move the throttle to nutural and the ESC should blink 2 times!. If you come this far you are now is Programming mode and you’ve earned the rite to “top off your drink” and should continue with these helpful simplified instructions. If you have not achieved programming mode, then go back to step 2 and try it again, it is not recommended that you top off your drink at this point.. (put down your transmitter until step nine! but do not turn it off!)
This next task is best explained if you have your MGM instructions with you for “parameter Programming / programming table” if not
you can get a copy here - http://mgm-compro.com/manuals/en-man...20-d270308.pdf
now that you’ve got the document in front of you, it time to decide what / how you are going to program your ESC, review the doc and circle on the page your printed out of the programming table your choices. Once you have completed that task you should know that you are already in programming mode (stay with me here!) so now you need to set your first parameter (A) and your first Value (1, 3 or 5) Values 2 & 4 are for boats and will not apply to this task. (still with me) ?? Your First Parameter is “mode choice” your values are forward and backward (1), forward only (3) and Automatic (5). I run value 1 <=I=> car mode forward / backward
before we move own you need to know the proper steps in setting your value in each parameter you are setting,
this step applies to each and every parameter and value you will need to set up so learn it!, memorize it and then top off your totty! and light them if you got um because your going to be the master of your own domain. (sorry Seinfeld moment)..
Programming Values into your parameters only!
Move the throttle to full throttle position, the ESC will blink once or the motor will beep once, now move the throttle to neutral position and the LED light on the esc will blink 2 times, you have now set your first parameter A as Value (1) Car mode forward and backwards. If you want to set your parameter A as value 3 (forward only) then simple perform the full throttle back to neutral, 3 successful times of full throttle (1 beep or blink) and neutral (2 blinks)
Once you have set your values within your parameter you will need to finish by performing the following before moving to your next parameter, B (brake).
Move the throttle to full brake position and the motor and ESC should it blinks or beeps (3) times, then go back to neutral position and the motor and ESC should it blinks or beeps (2) times. If so, congratulations!!! You’ve got it!.. have another drink and make it a double because you’ve earned it!.. if not (??) well then go back and try it again.. You have now successfully completed your first parameter and value and now you move on two parameter B with values of 1, 3 & 5.
Now move on to your second parameter “B” Braking and so on and so on until your have completed all of the parameter A-J and there applicable values of 1, 3 & 5.
That it... Simple haa..
Have a great one
Remember you can always remove all programming from the ESC and start from scratch by simply turning everything off, then turn on your transmitter with the throttle on full throttle and then turn on your RX, let the ESC / motor beep 3 times (continue to hold it) and then it will beep or blink 4 times, now move the throttle to the full brake position in 3 sec and the motor / ESC led will blink / beep and then shut it all down and simply start @ step two again..
There is a great example of programming by transmitter for 14 steps on page 11 of 12 here. But I feel that my explanation gives it a more personnel touch.
Once you understand the how to’s it should take you all of 10 minutes to program your MGM controller Via your transmitter.
