Default hobbywing 1080 esc help

So I have the hw1080 installed and have been messing with different settings in hopes to make the reverse less jumpy i switched setting 6 (max reverse) to 1(25%) when i do this it seems to make the rig go slower in forwards and nothing in reverse? seems weird, any input is greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Try setting it back to default settings and switching the leads. Positive motor wire into negative esc wire and vise versa.

1) Did you calibrate your ESC with your transmitter per the HW instructions?

or

2) What is the timing setting of your motor?

Mine did that initially too. I figured the (stock) overdrive had something to do with it. I fixed it by first calibrating the receiver/radio, then by setting the ESC exactly like the YouTube video (guy with a laptop) and it is S M O O T H. RTR radio and receiver, stock motor. Even the servo works better.

"switching the leads"

Comment to think about, if and when back up & brake lights are added. I believe, the operation of same will be hosed .

Having the 1030, I was able to tame the reverse hop and over speed. Using the transmitter throttle parameters.

Lowering / restricting reverse max speed, no need for 100mph reverse capabilities
