500 ESP, Page 27 of the manual. (1) DX7, throttle in highest position, turn on tx. Plug in battery to esc. (2) Power on sound, then 4 notes, low to high letting me know I'm in setup mode. (3) Throttle adjustment process, the highest potition acknowledge sound (doesn't explain much there, very vague),(4) Place throttle stick to lowest sound, Position, the lowest position acknowledge sound (doesn't say HOW to acknowledge sound, doesn't explain what sound to listed for or how to get it to make different sounds), (5), Use throttle stick to set preferred Brake Mode withing 5 tones. A confirmation sound will kick in when finish (I hear a bunch of beeps and thats it, no ide how to set the brake mode within 5 tones. How do I know what the confirmation beep sounds like? (6), Use throttle stick to set perferred Timing Mode within the 5 tones (no idea what 5 tones they are talking about, all the beeps sound similar to me), (7), (8) I'm so lost, this makes no sense at all.

Horrible manual, well, not really horrible, just not very specific.

I've turned the heli on without programming to adjust the servos and just thought it might be a good idea to program the esc. It is probably set on 5.5v and I want it to be on 6v, no gov, no brake. Whats the proper setup?

Thanks

I think I might be starting to figure it out. Wish the manual would have been more specific. What should I use for the setup? I have an idea on some of it.

1.Brake- disabled right?
2.Electronic timing- low mid or high, don't know what to use.
3.Battery protection- all it says is high cutoff or mid cutoff. doesn't list voltages. Which one do I use?
4.Aircraft-Heli 1
5. Throttle response speed-standard, medium, quick. Which one?
6. BEC output- 5.0, 5.5, 6.0, going to use 6.0v (ino lab HG-D261 on tail)

Thanks

Not to be a smart arse, but try reading it again but slooooowly this time. Start with the throttle in up position (make sure your throttle curve is 0 - 50 - 100 and your in normal flight mode). Plug in the batt and you should hear the normal power-on tones; then you'll hear a fast rising pitch followed with fast lowering pitch. You'll hear that same up/dn tone 2 quick times. At this point, lower the throttle to the lowest position and you should hear the same up/dn tone 2 quick times.
That was the throttle channel adjustment portion. In other words, you match the tx's throttle range to the ESC throttle range.

At this point, you should start to hear SINGLE slow beeps (there will be 5 beeps total). These beeps mean that you have ~ 5 sec's (counted off as the 5 beeps) to choose 1 of 3 options for the Brake setting. To choose the setting, simple put the throttle in the position that's shown on the chart. For example, you want the brake to be disabled when flying helis so you'd leave the throttle stick in the low position.

Don't move the throttle until the next programming sequence starts which will have TWO slow beeps (there will be 5 groups of beeps total) and your ready to make your next selection. For example, put the throttle at mid stick so that you get mid-timing.

The rest is just like the above. If you still can't get it, let me know and I can make a quick vid for you. You can also check and see if Finless has already made a vid showing this stuff.

WATCH OUT!!!!!!!!

Definately disable brake, for now I'd start with mid-timing (less heat, more efficient, slight less power), I always run the lowest bat cutoff voltage cause I time ALL flights and do NOT want the LVC to activate (much rather loose a 100 bat than crash the heli) so go for middle cutoff, use Heli 1 unless you want to use the gov mode (most in these parts do NOT like the Align gov mode), throttle response leave at medium (quick is more for gov mode and causes slightly hotter motor/esc so less effecient), and BEC at 6V but don't forget to use the voltage reducer for your tail servo.

so easy even neilg. can do it .

i had a hard time with the instructions on mine. i set esc to each setting that was default( with the black bullet next to it). sound is not that loud which is a problem for me.

read, read, read. that's what i was told and i did just that.

Thanks, that makes so much more sense now. Wish the manual would have stated it like that.

Forgot to add, just going to run straight 6V on the BEC. The tail servo is an ino lab HG-D261HB and takes 6V. .07 seconds on 4.8V and .06 seconds on 6V. Just about as fast (only .01 difference) as a DS8717 but smaller and lighter weight. Should be the perfect tail servo for the 500.
