Can anyone help please.
I have an esc without set up instructions for a 60A R C Smart Esc. I have trawled the internet to no avail.

Thanks in anticipation.

If this is the ESC, it is an OPTO type which means you'll either have to connect a UBEC to it or use a separate battery pack to power the Rx and servos. It looks very much like the SP ESC's sold by Giantcod. You'll find some programming instructions on that site which may help.

Just checked GC to find this SP 60A ESC and the spec is worded identically to that on the RC Smart site. Manuals for all the products are found on the GC forum

Not much to go on there Jon
Have you tried running it on default out of box settings ?
Usually, all thats required is to teach the throttle throws and away you go.
1) Remove prop
2) Switch on Tx and put throttle to HIGH
3) Connect ESC to battery...wait for beeps
4) Move throttle stick to LOW....wait for more beeps.
5) Disconnect ESC, and switch off Tx.
 
Now, all future switch on procedures should be as per normal, with throttle set to low.

Just noticed that GC do both BEC and OPTO versions of the 60A, Jon - yours could be either!
