i’m using this motor (not the ESC that’s included since it has no reverse) :
this ESC :
and a 2S LIPO battery.
Since Hobbyking couldn’t tell me the PWM values to send to the ESC in order to make it stop/forward/reverse i thought i’d test it with the Arduino Uno using a potentiometer.
The problem is that the motor just beeps continuously, which i’ve read is a sign that there’s no signal on the data wire.
But i know that there is a signal on the data wire since the Uno is sending the pot value (mapped to the correct range).
I’m using this tutorial as a basis :
but instead of using LEDs i just use output on the serial monitor to tell me when to connect the ESC.
The motor just bleeps quickly and constantly, does anyone have any ideas what may be going on?
I’ve tested 3 brand new ESCs and all behave the same so it’s obviously something i’m doing wrong!
