"Cloudster" Construction Project Session #71
I have made this information from Jay Burhart
a Cloudster report so that for those of you like me
who are not familiar
JES 012 ESC will know the correct position to put the movable
Those jumpers are to choose what
type of battery are you using to that the cut off voltage is correct for the
type of cell.and also if you want the motor brake on or off.I believe your
are using Lipo so you need to choose "li" and probably Brake "on" so the
prop does not windmill when the motoris not running, That would be "LiBr".....
Since there is no compression with an electric you have to do something to
stop the prop. So your jumper is currently in the WRONG position if
you are using Lipos. Move the jumper so you are jumpering pins 2 and 3
saying that the top pin as in the picture is pin 1 and it is not
labeled. Then send me another picture with the view straight on and
detailing the jumpers. Don't take the picture at an angle.
Sorry I have been so long in getting back to you, but I have been down sick
with a bad cold. However, this afternoon I did remove the ESC from the
Cloudster so I could move the jumper per your instructions. When I removed
the jumper from its factory position, there are four labels, which fall in
between each of the five pins as shown below! :O<
However, if I understand
your instructions above correctly, the white arrows show which label
corresponds to which pin in the picture below.
Again, based on
your instructions above, I have replaced the jumper on what I think are
pins 2 & 3. Pin 2 labeled Li/Br.OFF is jumpered to pin 3 labeled Li/Br.ON.
