I'm actually running a Holmes shv500v2 straight on my 3s battery
No need for BEC or bypass harnesses .
Pretty simple to wire.

I have a question about the LVC on the 1080. I have yet run a battery down to have the LVC work. Does it cut the power or just momentarily drop it? I wonder because the kids don't have the same level of attention when it comes to running the RC cars. I have some older slashes without any LVC protection and they have ran batteries very low in the past. Now having LVC I wanted to know what to expect when it does kick in.

Thanks!

The norm is , quick burst of accel, then NO movement with throttle, servo wiggles. SOMETIMES another burst of accel.....

I know my 2200 3s will give me about :90 to 1:20 run time also

set at high

Cool thanks! I've tried to get them to pay attention, but you know kids.... Also, when their friends are over I pull out the NIMH's...

I'm pretty sure it does work for a fan but I can't even get the ESC warm on a hot summer day doing donuts in the sand... No need for a fan

The rig gets sluggish, but on 3S and under crawling conditions this can be hard to confirm. By the time you have finished scratching your head, you're dead in the water. Happens fast, no "reserve tank" like the airplanes I have flown. Not that I am complaining. Just is. Always carry a spare.

The lowest cut-off setting can put a lipo cell in danger level. Best to set it medium or high. I think the default is medium, but would have to verify that on the manual.
I also set peak volts to 95% of full charge voltage. Charge them at 1:1 C, put them at storage charge when idle - lipos just last longer this way.

Question for you guys,
I just started using one of these in a crawler, but i also have Tamiya and Kyosho 4wd racers.
This 1080 is stouted as a "crawler" esc, but would it be a good one to use in non crawler applications?

thx
Mike

Yup
My bomber uses a hobbywing 1080, 550 21T motor and I spend most of my time at full throttle

Just check the excel file in the post and use the rock racer settings

Mostly lowest drag brake, slow drag brake rate and other minor tweaks

Well thank you much for the quick reply.
I find this esc to be an incredible unit for what it cost.
This thread you started has also helped me immensely in understanding how to use it

I completely agree with Browneye.... I actually set mine to "high" when I realized that it cuts off right at storage voltage, of course I verify this every time with cell checker, this way if you get busy or forget, you know your batts are at or really close to storage.

Chris, regarding 95% so does that mean you are only charging to 4.10v per cell vs 4.20? I've read about doing that, but never took the time to adjust the charger.

Just leave the freewheeling on its default setting (off) for quicker throttle response with your non crawler.
