    Anyone here have a Castle Sidewinder 3 and have dim bumper lights?


    So I've installed my Sidewinder 3 ESC and Castle 2400kv motor; all is well except that my bumper lights are dim now, when I had the stock brushless system in it; they were very bright; now not so much.
    I have the Castle Link with hopes of changing the output voltage.
    Anyone of you fine folks have some tips on how to fix this?
    Maybe you had the same problem and resolved the issue?
    Maybe I'm dim?

    It looks like you have the Castle Creations link software. You can raise the voltage on the bec and that should make your lights brighter.

    I couldn't find the tab that indicates specifically BEC voltage settings; I'm sure its there; likely couldn't find it due to a lack of sleep...

    I didn't think you could change the internal voltage on the ESC ..on my MM2 ESC's....I have an external BEC which I can change the voltage with the link...
