ED Codes and Protection Modes • Solid Green: VXL-3s power on light. Low-Voltage Detection is
ACTIVATED (LiPo setting).
• Solid Red: VXL-3s power on light. Low-Voltage Detection is
DISABLED (NiCad/NiMH setting).
• Very Fast Blinking Red: Thermal Shutdown Protection and Low
Voltage Protection have occurred at the same time.
• Fast Blinking Red: Thermal Shutdown Protection, Stage 1. If the
motor has lower than normal power and the VXL-3s is hot, the VXL-
3s has entered Thermal Shutdown Protection, Stage 1, to guard
against overheating caused by excessive current flow. If the motor
has no power and the VXL-3s is very hot, the VXL-3s has entered
Thermal Shutdown Protection, Stage 2, and has automatically shut
down. Let the VXL-3s cool. Make sure your model is properly geared
for the conditions.
• Slow Blinking Red (with Low-Voltage Detection on): The VXL-3s
has entered Low-Voltage Protection. When the battery voltage
begins to reach the minimum recommended discharge voltage
threshold for LiPo battery packs, the VXL-3s will limit the power
output to 50% throttle. When the battery voltage attempts to fall
below the minimum threshold, the VXL-3s will shut down all motor
output. The LED on the speed control will slowly blink red, indicating
a low voltage shutdown. The VXL-3s will stay in this mode until a
fully charged battery is connected.
• Alternating, Blinks Red then Green: If the motor has no power,
the VXL-3s has entered Over Voltage Protection. If a battery with
too high voltage is used, the VXL-3s will go into a failsafe mode.
WARNING: If input voltage exceeds approximately 20-volts, the ESC
may be damaged. Do not exceed 12.6 maximum peak input voltage.
• Blinking Green: The VXL-3s is indicating the transmitter Throttle
Trim is incorrectly set. Adjust the Throttle Trim to the middle 0
