Exclamation ESC reset

Hey Everyone

I have a question, after flying electric aircraft and you disconnect the battery and then reconnect the same battery (guys in my club say) it resets the ESC so LVC does not work (sees batt as 100% they say).
I argued that was not the case, that low voltage was low voltage and the programed ESC detects cell voltage everytime. 1OO% or 65% the LVC is the same as the first time it (the ESC) was set??? Flight time for sure is affected, not LVC?


Hmmmmm

Depends entirely on the BRAND of ESC.
Electrifly works that way. (IMO avoid that brand because of that)
Check it out and do the math. It's poor on a fresh lipo and horrible on a used lipo.

Some brands are set, or can be set to a something like AUTO @ 2.9/3/3.1v/cell. Exact voltages depends on the brand/model.
Still others to an absolute voltage of your choice (Castle with the USB Link). Castle will do AUTO also-no LINK required.

Some are set to an absolute volatage-no setting possible.
GWS is that way and the setting is so low I consider it lipo destructive. Absolute ESC dinosaur.

It pays to read the instruction BEFORE you buy these things.
No way to make a blanket statement about how they work.

Thumbs up mine are fine

I guess he has had problems in the past, I have never heard that before and I have ran batteries a second time on a regular bases, with no problems.

I just pay attention to the motor sound and throttle settings when she flys.

Thanks

Default Question

I have a problem with an ESC maybe you all can help me with.
I have a Dynam 30a ESC
http://www.hobbypartz.com/60p-dye-1003-30a-esc.html
After installing it in my scratch build it wont turn (it did before with out problem before instalation) it seems like the brake is on. So I checked the manual.
http://www.dynam-rc.com/download/diantiao.pdf
Followed the directions on how to release the brake however my ESC does not make the same noises or beeps. When I turn my Tx on with full throttle plug in my battery because I do not have a switch instead of 5 beeps after 5 seconds I get melody type beeping. I turn the throttle to the down position and I get another set of beeps but still have the same problem. I tried rebinding just for the sake of argument and of course it did no good. Is my ESC fried? I tend not to think so or is mt motor fried? Everything worked fine before actual instalation in fact my ESC is soldered to my motor and like I have already said it worked prior to instalation.
Any help anyone can provide is appreciated
Thanks in advance I humbly await your replies

Nevermind I found the problem. Seemed I had a loose wire between the motor and ESC and missed it
