EXTREME FLIGHT RC AIRBOSS ELITE ESC

Operations manual V3.0 2011-2012

Greetings valued customer,

Congratulations on the purchase of your new Extreme Flight RC Airboss Elite Series Brushless ESC. This latest series of controllers is unique in that it is equipped with a robust internal switching Battery Eliminator Circuit (BEC) that allows the use of up to 6 lithium polymer cells in series without the need for an external BEC. This internal BEC delivers 6 volts to your receiver and servos and is capable of delivering a continuous 3 Amps of current, 4 Amps peak.  The Airboss Elite controller also features an auto-detect function that automatically senses the number of cells plugged into its battery leads. For most applications the Airboss Elite unit is plug and play, meaning no programming is required.
 Please read and pay careful attention to the following instructions before you start to work with your motor and controller.  These instructions contain important information that can keep you from ruining your motor, batteries, and ESC.

 Your Airboss Elite Series controller is equipped with a ferrite ring “choke” to minimize interference.  Depending on your radio system, you may or may not need this device.  It is easily removed by unwrapping the wire from around the ring.  Always range check your flight system on new aircraft with the motor running before flying.
 

Motor Connections - The speed controller is to be connected to the motor by using the bullet connectors that are already soldered in place. If using a Torque motor simply plug the 3 males connectors from the motor into the 3 female connectors coming from the ESC. Check for proper direction of motor rotation and if the motor is running in reverse swap any two wires to change direction of rotation.

Battery connections – Your Airboss Elite controller has a genuine Dean's connector plug already soldered to the battery leads. The red wire corresponds to battery (+) and the black wire to battery (-). Reversing the battery connections will destroy the ESC. The maximum length of the battery pack wires should be 6 inches.
Receiver connection – Plug the universal servo connector into the receiver throttle channel.
Installing the Controller

Install the controller in the model so that it is free from vibration and shock, using Velcro or double sided foam tape. Make sure there is sufficient cooling for the controller by ducting air through cooling holes from outside airflow. Failure to do this could cause controller shutdown or damage. Mount the BEC switch securely.
Transmitter set up:

Check that throttle end point settings are +/-100% .

For Futaba transmitters, reverse the throttle channel.
Normal start up:

Switch the transmitter on and pull the throttle stick down to idle position.

Connect battery pack to the controller

Turn receiver switched “On” (BEC switch on).

You will hear one tone for Brake on or two tones for Brake off, followed by a series of tones that will verify the number of cells connected.

The position of full throttle will be calibrated automatically.

You motor now is ready to run. It is highly recommended that you push your throttle trim forward enough to start the motor turning at a low RPM before taking off. This will improve throttle response and insure that proper synchronization between the motor and ESC is maintained.

SAFETY WARNING:


  • Always connect the motor battery pack just before flight and disconnect it immediately after landing. The battery will be drained if left connected.

  • Once the motor battery pack is connected, handle the model with extreme care!

  • Ensure that you are well clear of the propeller at all times.

  • A rotating propeller is extremely dangerous!

  • Even when the receiver (BEC) switch turned “OFF”, the motor battery pack may still be connected. Handle the model with extreme care and stay clear of the propeller!


The controller comes programmed with the following factory default settings:
Brake : Off Lets the propeller coast

Battery type : Li-Poly Auto-detect Detects number of cells connected

Soft start : Disabled Rapid motor acceleration

Low Voltage Cutoff : Reduce power Slow motor when battery is low

Timing : Auto ESC advance timing mode

Frequency : 8KHz ESC switching frequency

RPM Control : Off Governor mode for helicopters

How to program your controller:

As mentioned earlier, for most applications the Airboss Elite ESC needs no additional programming. The unit is programmed by using the transmitter throttle stick as directed below and responding to the tones produced by the motor. The tones are played in the order below. Responding to a tone with the throttle stick changes a setting. After making a change, disconnect the battery. Start over to make another change. To leave programming mode without making a change, disconnect the battery from the ESC.


  • REMOVE PROPELLER!!!

  • Switch on the transmitter and push throttle stick to full throttle.

  • Connect the motor battery pack and turn on the receiver (BEC) switch.

  • Wait for 5 seconds, you’ll hear _ _ - - (two low tones followed by two high tones)

  • Setup mode is entered

  • When you hear the desired tones from the list below, pull the throttle down, you will hear two confirmation tones. The setting is now memorized.

  • You can only change one setting at a time, if you need to change more settings, disconnect the battery from the ESC and wait 5 seconds, and repeat the above procedure for the next setting.

  • You can exit the programming mode at any time if you disconnect the battery from the ESC.


1. Setting up the propeller Brake on or off

Follow above procedure to enter the programming mode.

If you pull the throttle stick to off within 5 seconds, Brake will be changed. (ON  OFF, or OFF  ON)

When you connect the battery to get ready to fly, you will hear one tone for Brake on or two tones for Brake off, followed by a series of tones that will verify the number of cells connected.
2. Battery type

(Select battery type that is being used in your model)
NiCad: (50% of initial voltage)

.   .   .   .   . (5 single beeps)
Auto-Detect Lipo: (3.0 volts/cell cutoff)

..  ..  ..  ..  ..   (5 double beeps)


3. Rotation reverse


This function is to change the motor rotation direction. (This may also be achieved by switching any 2 of the 3 motor wires between the motor and ESC).
Reverse motor rotation

W W W W W (5 double warble tones)


4. Soft start (Acceleration)

When a gearbox is used, it’s highly recommended to enable the soft start feature

to protect the gearbox, especially when large diameter propellers are used.

Disable the soft start function when direct drive is used or for speed competition.
Enable: VV VV VV VV VV (5 dual warble tones)

Disable: V V V V V (5 single warble tones)




5. Low Voltage Cutoff (LVC)

If the motor battery pack drops to the programmed cut-off voltage, the controller will either ignore, reduce the motor speed or stop the motor to ensure that there is enough power for the receiver and servos. You can resume normal operation by pulling down the throttle stick and pushing it up again, but remember that it’s time to land your model!
Ignore

(Motor won’t stop until battery IS DRAINED)

Caution! Warning!:
Model aircraft equipped with high power motors can kill. High power motor systems can be very dangerous! High currents can heat wires and batteries, causing fires and burning skin or anything that comes in contact.

Follow the wiring connection carefully!
Always fly at a sanctioned field. Never fly over or near spectators. Even though this controller is

equipped with a safety arming program, you should still use caution when connecting the

battery.

Notice for Operation:

  • Do not exceed 16 NiCad NiMh cells or 6S Li-Poly cells in series.

  • Temperature overload protection is built into the speed controller, it turns off the motor immediately when the temperature reaches 212°F/100°C.

  • Do not connect the controller to just ‘any’ kind of power sources. Take care to verify the correct polarity of NiCad, NiMh or Li-Poly power packs.

  • The controller will be destroyed if connected to the battery with the wrong polarity.
