OK an interesting discovery .
Reprogrammed the ESC with 24khz PWM, 22 deg timing, and V soft start,.
Seems to work ok, but i can still "force a sync drop out occasionally if i slow and accelerate hard.
Now here is is an interesting factoid ... it seems that once the motor loses sync, it also causes the ESC to default back to factory settings.
At least i know the start mode defaults back ( its hard to tell what the other settings are actually doing)
It stays in "default" mode until i power down and when re-powered it comes back on my "personalised " settings ( Start mode at least since that is the only parameter i can easily see)
Is this typical for these programmable ESC's. ? or am i missing something ( i have rechecked afew times and the same thing happens)
If so, beware of what sync drop outs can do to your ESC settings !
I have never heard of this issue of going back to factory defults after a sync loss event. Even stranger that cycling power returns it to the personalised settings again.
I hate programing via stick mode (or servo tester mode) Is so hit and miss. It als puts a big strain on the ESC in relation to heat build up. I always use programing cards so I know exactly what the settings are. For the sake of a few dollars, well worth the investment.
I use this one with the K-Force 100A. http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/store/uh_viewItem.asp?idProduct=7187
