it saves excess power that the motor doesnt take and saves it for later..
then it bursts and puts the power to the motor at one time like a turbo to make you go faster..

I am getting all the bits and pieces to go LiPo on a Micro DT. If it will fit, I'm going to put in a Novak Low Voltage Cut-off (LVC). I have found a spot that looks like it will fit however, the connections have me stumped.

There is one 5-pin connection coming out of the ESC/receiver; is that a combination speed/direction connection? If so I'll have to cut wires and splice in. Not sure I like that

Has anyone done this before?

Regards

once again guys my micro t with the lipo and the original battery is stopping all the time and now i turn it on and sometimes when i pull the throttle nothing happens. Every once in a while it does but shuts off in like 1 second. However i just noticed that i picked it up and if i just barely squeeze the throttle the wheels will just keep going and not die, but at about half throttle or so it just shuts off. Where do you think the issue is. My micro t is only about 2 weeks old. Ive probably only ran it about 10 times or so on each battery.

when the wheels stop can you keep steering?? if you can steer then its your motor... most likely your brushes are getting hung up... send the motor back to horizon hobbies and they will send you a new one for free...

not yet but i have had 2 BL XXX-T's and with the stock motors it would do the same thing the brushes would get stuck on a part of the can and you would have to go over and give it a nudge then i was like wow and got mad. went to the LHS and they were like umm.... you will NEVER have this problem with a brushless system.... and brushless motor pretty much last forever.

no he doesnt.... look this is the servo you will need!!!!!!!! !! the servo he need is JR sport SM22 servo and LOSB0820 servo saver. the brushless ESC has the wires to connect to the reciever. here is the link to EVERY thing you will need (with his choice of receiver).... http://www.losi.com/ProdInfo/Files/M...n_Guide_v2.pdf

$80 will be the total. That guide madmaxx is talking about is old. It was released before Losi released those parts.

Alright, i have a question. i just bought a micro-t. (today). i opeed it up, and plugged in the battery to the charger. The LED is supposed to be red because it needs to charge correct? i have never run the battery or anything. i just put new batteries in the charger. and nothing. any suggestions?

you are correct. the red means it needs charging.


***** the receiver (that you posted) is actually an ESC/reciever like the stock ESC so he wont need a brushless ESC. i know what you are going at now sorry.
