TOPIC: Tamiya TBLE-02S to Acoms Techniplus MKIV

Tamiya TBLE-02S to Acoms Techniplus MKIV 2 weeks 2 days ago #59792

Have just built TT02 Mustang GT4 kit. It comes with TBLE-02s ESC and Torque Tuned Motor. My problem is I can’t get it to work. I don’t have a 4xAA Battery pack connected to receiver as I don’t have one. but from all I have read you don’t need one as the power to receiver comes from the ESC servo wire into channel 2. It also states this in the instructions. All that happens when turned on is steering servo moves on its own. But nothing moves from the controller.

You need to program your esc.
As long as the steering works, the radio system works.

You just have to tell the esc where full speed, full reverse and neutral is.

From your picture it looks like one of your plugs is in backwards.

If you mean the servo type wire from ESC in channel 2 I thought that to. As the steering servo plug from left to right is white red back. Whereas the servo wire from ESC from left to right is black red white. Trouble is the plugs are kinda shaped to go in a certain way I.e they have corners Cut of on plug. However I’m sure I could turn plug upside down to make the wires the same sequence as steering servo wire but I was wary about causing damage. I was told that all I have to do is switch the channel switch from N to R.

Hope this makes sense

Plugging one of them in backwards will not reverse the servo (or ESC), it will just make it not work. You can reverse motor wires to reverse the direction of the motor though. They both need to be plugged in with ground (black) on the same side.

Hi m8. You are a legend. I’ve been thinking it was wrong since I first built the kit up. But was scared to change in case of shorting something out

Many thanks

The good news is that plugging in a servo connector backwards usually doesn't hurt anything. Because the positive (red) wire is in the middle, it is in the same place even if you install it backwards. It just won't have a ground so it won't work. On the other hand, never reverse the polarity of the battery coming into the ESC. It can quite literally burst into flames.

To summarize the impacts of plugging things in backwards:
  • Receiver plugs: No negative impact. Won't work.
  • Motor wires: Will reverse direction of motor.
  • Battery: Fire hazard. :laugh:
