Prolonged/excessive heating of solder post (motor or ESC) will damage PCB.
Note: Make sure no wire strands have strayed to an adjacent solder post, this will
result in short-circuiting & severe ESC damage, which will void the warranty.

Brushed Motor Wiring

Use this mode if you


wish to use reverse. se only the

blue and orange motor wires from the ESC. In most
applications, the blue wire from the ESC will connect to
positive + side hood on your motor, and the orange wire
to the negative - side hood of the motor. The yellow
motor wire is not used. After calibration, (explained
below) you may need to swap the two motor wires to
get the wheels to spin in the right direction.

Connect all three of the ESC motor wires to the negative
(-) side of the motor. You can either use a Y harness
from the ESC battery input positive wire to connect to
both the battery and the positive side of the motor, or use
a single wire from the positive ESC input to the positive
battery pole and then continue to the positive (+) side of

How to Calibrate ESC

Individual transmitter's signals for full throttle, full brake and neutral vary. You must
calibrate your ESC so that it will operate more effectively with you transmitter.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Calibration is necessary for the first use of the ESC, or whenever
used with a new/different transmitter.

1)Programming Card(Optional Part)
Programming Card allows you to modify the most commonly used settings in your
TORO 8 controller all at the touch of a single button. No computer needed. Simply

Brushless Motor Wiring

Connect the blue, yellow and orange motor wires to the motor. There is no polarity on the
three ESC-to-motor wires, so do not worry about how you connect them initially. You may
find it necessary to swap two wires if the motor runs in reverse.

LED and ring the initialization tones.
Wait 2 seconds
Green LED blinks rapidly and the motor will rings 1 second indicating
full throttle measured.

From this point on, when you connect batteries and turn on the switch, the ESC will give
the initialization tone and flash, and the arming tone will ring second or two later. If the
ESC is programmed for the Auto-Lipo setting, it will beep the number of cells in you Lipo
pack between the initialization tones and the arming tones. After the arming tone plays,
the ESC will ACTIVE and will respond to the throttle application.
