Default Motor settings question

Hi All,

I have just purchased a new HW 100A lv v3 for g500, and would like to ask about settings. I've been all YGE for 4 years, but my new yge v3 120 bec failed and took out 4 servos, so I'm becoming a Hobbywing guy again! (FYI - yge would not warranty even the esc for me!)

I used to run hw platinum 120hv on my birds, and iirc the timing convention is a little different than others, isn't it? My motor is a KDE 500xf 1450.

Best timing and pwm?

Thank you!!

Try 18 deg timing. If you cant choose individual timing try 15 deg. For pwm run the highest and make sure the esc isnt getting too hot,

This is why I never ever run esc based becs on any of my helis anymore. Been there, cost me. And why Thomas, who owns MKS USA told me on the phone it is the number one reason servos fail industry wide. And electronics btw. Most esc based becs fail and provide full pack voltage while doing so.

No two identical factory motors run the same everytime on any esc. Nor do any two identical esc's run exactly the same with the same motor to where you can ask on the net what works for another guy. Per Dan at Gobrushless. Who is a master motor builder.

Best tip, hold the motor out of the heli by hand by its base or by the motor mount. And try your pwm timing runs. Log which ones 'feel' the cleanest. No micro stutters. You will usually end up with three or four good esc motor combos. One will be more efficient, one a good mix. And one will produce the most power. Then install and fly and test. Since no two helis ever seem to be setup the same way either, blades, gearing, Hs, flight style, batteries, ect ect. This is really the only good way to do this.

Thanks for the reply. That sounds like a good way to find optimal config.

5* and 32khz is awesome. The 32 surprised me, but that's stock setting and with it the thing's a bomber!
