Hi all, I must be missing something obvious here as I'm not getting the green LVD light when I connect lipo's to the EVX-2 esc. I've got the little card that came on the ESC battery leads and followed the instructions but the light always goes red after the initial green flash.
Who wants to point out my stupid noob error?
When it turns red hold it down like ur turning it off but keep it held down till it turns green
Green = lipo
Red = nimh
and when it changes the motor will make a little movement
Thanks, will try tomorrow. Have tried holding it down, obviously not long enough though!
if you are trying to turn it on with nimhs in the car even if theyre fully charged you wont be able to change it, you need to have a set of fully charged lipos to turn it on, hope that helped :)
Yep, two fully charged 2s 7600mAh lipo's.
Awesome, press and hold for LONGER than I did before and it eventually went green.
Ran the packs until the LVC cut in and it went to 50% throttle so it works but I was very surprised to put the pack on my lipo checker and find there was 36% left in both packs. I use lipo's all the time and know not to run them too low but 36% (7.6V) is way off empty.
Is there a way to adjust the cut off voltage?
If not I may turn the LVC back off and use a Lipo alarm and listen out for the beeping.
It could be that your lipos are starting to dip once u get down that low?..
They are 40-80c so should be good, especially at 7.6 Ah!
Maybe it's the cold, I was doing mixed driving through snow.
No way to adjust.
Cold is hard on LiPo... what you are experiencing is normal.
