Thread: Hobbyzone Delta Ray switch problem.
28/12/2018 13:29:51

Hi, Got the Hobbyzone Delta Ray BNF for Xmas. Set up my dx8 as per instructions. Bound the dx8 to the plane. Safe setting works perfectly but I can't turn the Safe off for some reason. None of the switches have any effect on the Safe setting. Any ideas much appreciated.


Thread: Screaming electric motor
14/06/2018 15:48:48
Hi Graham, not seen that myself but it runs okay at full revs without the prop, not with, the motor completely stops when prop attached.

Hi Denis, The motor isn't spinning at all when the screaming noise starts, it stops completely.

Hi Gary, prop retained with one of those prop saver rings and it is gripping ok. Motor doesn't scream when no prop is on and that would be at its highest revs I presume.

Hi Denis, thanks for the quick reply. Unfortunately I'm not sure what you mean. I only replaced the motor like for like and the new motor did not come with any paperwork.

Hi, just installed a new replacement motor in my wing wing. Tested without propellor and all worked fine. But, when I put on the propellor and gave it full throttle the motor stopped and made a screaming noise. No burning smell or smoke. Removed propellor, gave it full throttle and all is okay. Tried with propellor, 5 x 5, engine stops at full throttle with screaming noise again, tried without prop and all okay, tried with 6 x 5 propellor, screaming noise at full throttle again with engine stop. Anybody any ideas as I'm stumped.

Hi, Brand new Hobbyking esc not working. Did the tx throttle on high, wait for beeps throttle down etc. It started beeping with the throttle on high and the beeping just went on and on, not stopping, but also had a siren like sound as well. This went on for a minute or so and my dog started to look a bit worried, so I then lowered the throttle and got a couple of beeps. Still not working. There was also a flashing red light as well as the normal light in my receiver. Any ideas out there?

I did try the above directions from Simon but no joy im afraid.

Hi everybody, thanks for all your very speedy advise.I know how to programme the esc from the YouTube video. Problem is i need just the green light to do it and i have both red and green lights and dont know how to turn off the red light and cant see any instructions of how to do it in the manual. Any ideas?

The esc programming button has a red and green light and it is not possible to programme the esc when both lights are showing, it can only be done when just the green light is on. I have both lights showing and I cant find a way to turn off the red light. There was no information in the build instructions about programming the esc. I have emailed Graupner but am not hopeful of getting a reply. Can anyone out there help.
