Default Need help! esc and radio(holmes/mt4)

Been dealing with a couple things for some time, first one the esc has been since I got sometime ago but thing is im not sure of its a problem or the way it is since I have read threads with others having same issue with no fix...

First part, the br-xl esc I cannot get it to hold on a incline to save my life, I have been screwing with the settings trying different things with no results also using a holmes torque master 13t. This is in a wraith and hits the scales at almost 9lb. I including a shot of one of the settings I did.

2nd the radio, been awesome but dam hard to setup! Issue here is winch operation, Anyone knows how or what do you adjust so the servo will lock once you stop? Other words if on a incline and I stop winching it will creep backwards unspooling itself...lol that doesnt sound to good.

Thanks for any input



Short clip showing what it does, esc issue.

The 13t motor is fast enough to have reduced torque and drag brake. Even with Hold mode it will be difficult to stop creep.

What is your gearing and voltage?

Hey,
Sent a email sunday but hadnt heard anything why I tried here...
Anyways previous motor was your 35t torque master and it didnt the same thing, only other motor I have had and esc since I bought the rig.
using 32p 13/60 I believe, I do recall the ratio was just a tad under stock so litlte more torque. 3s lipo...

If you want stronger brakes why do you have them turned down?

If you want your winch to hold it will need a controller with drag brake.

Its just the fast motor. If you swapped to a 27t version it would hold just fine.

Sigh....I just spent 3hrs at the lhs trying to figure this out but like I said earlier I had your 35t in it with same results.
