losi strike esc question
I just got a losi strike lastnight,and my question is,is there a setup you have to go through to toggle between lipo mode and nimh mode?I'm assuming there is but not sure.Also i plan on running lipo but whats a good battery to run with the stock electronics?I have lipo experiance just looking for advice on what to get,I was looking at 2s lipos at 7.4volts.
heres the manual [URL="http://www.losi.com/ProdInfo/Files/LOSB0105_Manual.pdf"]http://www.losi.com/ProdInfo/Files/LOSB0105_Manual.pdf[/URL]
NOTE: While in the programming mode, no power is applied to
Battery Selection: When the ESC is powered on, the LED will be
flashing for 2 seconds to indicate the Selected Battery Type.
During this time the user can press the key to toggle between
LiPo and NiMH/NiCd modes. After the key has been pressed
(battery type selected), the LED will flash for 2 more seconds.
A. Turn on ESC and push button once within 2 seconds, push
again to toggle between modes.
B. Red light indicates LiPo mode (with 6-volt cutoff)
C. Green light indicates NiMH/NiCd mode
I found the answer to my esc question but i'm still needing advice on a battery.
I just got the newer SCT from Losi and got a 2s 35C 5000mah Lipo, seems to match up to the truck well. You could probably go with a higher "C" rating, but with the stock ESC you cannot go more than 2s (7.2V)
yeah i would go with no less than 35c. check out hobbypartz.com for gen ace they seem to have some good reviews, i'm waiting for the 5000mah 50c
ok new issue when i turn the esc on the green light blinks twice then goes out,then the red and green light both come on and they want to stay on no matter what i do.It doesn't seem to want to program,which sucks because i had planned to race it this weekend.So i don't know hopefully somebody can help.
check the link i posted to the strike manual. page 8
sounds like it needs end point adjustments set (calibrating esc to transmitter)
also may need rebind? does steering work?
Yep the steering works fine i just got the manual from the guy that i got it from.I'm going to take it to my lhs tomorrow.

I had to do it on the XXX-SCT even though it was new straight out of the box.
the esc doesn't respond like the manual says it should,when i try to set the end points.It says to hold the button and turn on the esc until the red/green light comes on then release it.pull the trigger to full throttle until the green light goes from flashing to solid.but the problem is the green/redlight never flashes itjust stays solid.the battery i'm using is fully charged and the wire that goes to the receiver is correct.
