ARC-1 ESC Mode Selection & Easy Setup [VIDEO]

strong>From Carisma:
The ARC-1 Brushed ESC, as supplied with all our RTR Scale Rigs, and some of our Carisma RC On Road RTR vehicles, has four different running modes.

Mode 1: Forward/Reverse with Smart Brake (perfect for non Crawling RTR applications and fun RC, as there’s no always on Drag Brake, and no Instant Reverse. When going from Forwards to reverse, the ESC will brake instead of initiating instant reverse. The ESC will remain like this unless the throttle is returned to the stop position for a short moment).

Mode 2: Forward Only (perfect for stock class race applications where Reverse is not allowed to avoid causing crashes on track).

Mode 3: Beginner Mode (reduces the amount of available forwards throttle to half, making it easier to control and less prone to crashing).

Mode 4: Crawler Mode (always on Drag/Descent Brake and Instant Reverse).
