    This might be a dumb thing to ask but is the ESC for smoke fluid control right? I have a DX8 can't I just turn that channel down?? I have always wanted to do smoke and I have a big yak 55 that would love to have smoke on her. This seems like a easy setup and great price? I always run the smoke on the simulator when practicing.

    Yep you are correct! The ESC is you speed control that works the same way with the smoke pump/motor. I'm not sure about the DX8 but I had no problem dialing down the servo to 20% through linkage settings or throw. The cool thing you can do as well which I did was setup a program mix with your throttle to turn on at say 20 or 25% and gradually increase smoke up to full throttle.

    It is a great price and to be honest i was surprised I could install a smoke system for around $100. It's definitely a cheap thrill! LOL

    Thanks I will be down for a couple of weeks and I think I might just jump on this setup. Will give me something to do plus I will have smoke after I am done. Coming out of the plane I mean:) :) thanks

    Awesome! Hopefully being down doesn't mean some lengthy recovery time for something!
     
  6. I'm trying to set up this pump on my Pilot RC Sbach (50cc). I set up my TX (Futaba T10J) with a mix (Throttle + CH8). If I plug a servo into CH8, it performs fine... but once I plus in the ESC into CH8, nothing happens.... Also, I get only one "beep" from the ESC when I power it on...

    Any ideas?
    Thanks

    Hmmm can you snap a pic of the mix setup?

    Oh!!!! You probably have to reverse that servo too! That's probably why your getting only one beep. Just a guess
     
  9. Servo reverse was indeed a problem ! Also the fact that I was using an S-BUS decoder to give me the additional channel(s) I need for the smoke ESC !
    I managed to get it working with it set up on CH-9 with no mixing ....
    But the mix still isn't working... hadn't much time last night to play with it but will try again over the weekend (raining so no flying!)

    Just an fwiw, I fly turbines and when the Spektrum DX7 2.4G first came out and it was the latest must have tech gadget 12 and 14 channel jets were converted to run on a DX7, the creativity to pull this off had me scratching my head but I always remember a quick archived search on RC jets @ rcpoo you will find how to pull off extra channnels when needed.
