Hi ,
I have a wasp 12a Esc which i can not find the instructions for and i am hoping someone has them and could give me some info .
Is it possible to reverse the running of the motor on this Esc by programing , i known i can on some of the other Esc i have .
The reason i ask is because on small motors i do not use connectors i solder them directly to the Esc which is fine so long as you dont take it out of a pusher model and put it into a tractor model as i am doing , i known i could unsolder two of the motor wires and reverse them but it would be nice just to program the Esc to run in the opposite direction .
Cheers ,
hope someone can help

If it is this speed controller or from here check out the bottom of the page:
NOTE: This ESC does not have a reverse function.
So looks like you need a 2 min job with the soldering iron
In the time it takes to find the info on the web it is probably faster and easier to just swop a wire for all of a few minutes work/soldering.

Hi Dusty ,
No its not a brc unless it`s a re-brand , i do know Wasp did a range of motors and Esc .
Still would be nice if i can program it just in-case i may want to reverse it again .

I can only think of or relate "wasp" branded stuff to BRC... Just my 2 penny...
Have you a picture of the ESC? I might have a idea or a solution...

What I do is to check direction of rotation using a connector block before I solder up (the kind here you push wires in from either side, with a screw to retain each wire).
Then mark the pairs when you have got the motor running the right way.
Then solder.

Use connectors & then swap any two motor/ESC wires to revers the motor....Simple...
