Basic ESC Startup trouble

(Daniel Mitchum) #1

After flashing an Arduino Due with the code provided under the Basic ESC learning tab, we tried to spin up a thruster using a power supply providing 12 volts to the ESC and our VideoRay thruster. Each time we tried to spin the thruster it would stutter about 3 times and then stop but never spin. We were hitting max current on the power supply so we tried a 6s 22v lipo and had similar results.

Please provide more information about what you are doing.

  • What esc are you using?
  • What motor are you using?
  • What power supply are you using?
  • How have you connected things?
  • Can you make a video?

The problem sounds like you do not have an adequate power supply.
