How to Calibrate ESC

ESC switch OFF.
Turn on the Transmitter.
Hold full throttle on your transmitter and turn the
ESC's switch ON.
Keep holding full throttle on the transmitter. The
ESC will flashes LED and ring the initialization tones.

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


For users with a Futaba Transmitter, you must reverse
the throttle channel signal on your transmitter. Please
refer to your Futaba instructions.

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.


1/18 SCALE


Congratulations and thank you for purchasing TORO
Micro high performance sensorless 1/18 Scale
Brushless Motor Electronic Speed Control. The
TORO Micro,1/18 scale brushless ESC represents
a latest technologies, providing all the features and


WARNING: This is an extremely powerful brushless

motor system. We strongly recommend removing your
pinion gear for your own safety and the safety of those

around you before performing calibration and programming

functions with this system. Please keep your hands, hair,

high performance system.

Never allow water, moisture, or other foreign materials

1/18 SCALE
The TORO Micro is intended for 1/18 scale vehicles.



Never use fewer than 2 or more than 3 LIPO cells in the
vehicle's main battery pack. The TORO Micro handles
up to 3S LIPO input (12.6 Volts MAX).

Always disconnect the battery pack from the speed
control when not in use to avoid short circuits and
possible fire hazard.

Reverse battery polarity can damage ESC & void
warranty. Disconnect battery immediately if a reverse
connection occurs.

to get inside ESC, motor, or on the PC Boards.
Water damage will void the warranty!

Turn on the transmitter first THEN turn on the speed

Always insulate exposed wiring with heat shrink tubing
or electrical tape to prevent short circuits, which can
damage ESC.

Wait 2 seconds
Green LED blinks rapidly and
the motor will rings 4 times
indicating full throttle measured.

Red LED blinks whiles beeping,
indicating it's time to push full
brake. Move throttle trigger to
full brake and wait few seconds,
the ESC will blink red LED and
rings 4 times indicating full brake

Yellow LED blinks whiles beeping,
indicating it's time for neutral.
Relax trigger to neutral (center).
The ESC will now ring 4 times
and flash the yellow LED rapidly
to accept the neutral position.

ESC will blink LED and ring twice
indicating that it is armed.

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

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.


throttle application.

1)Programming Card(Optional Part)


Programming Card allows you to modify the most
commonly used settings in your TORO Micro
controller all at the touch of a single button. No
computer needed. Simply connect the Programming
Card to the throttle lead of the controller and power
the programming card as described below. Click the
button to scroll through and change the indicated
settings. All the settings will show on the programming
card at once. Can't get any easier!

Turn off the ESC and disconnect the throttle lead from the receiver.
Connect the throttle lead from ESC to the 3 pin connector on the
Program Card.
Turn on the ESC to apply power to both ESC and Program Card.
All the current settings will be displayed on the correspond LEDs.
Press and release button to move between settings.
Press and hold button to change the value for that setting.
Turn off the ESC and disconnect the throttle lead from Program
Card and connect it back to the receiver.

2)Manual Programming

You must answer "yes" (full
throttle) or "no" (full brake)
to the setting values as they
are presented by TORO Micro.
When you enter programming
mode the ESC will emit a
sequence of beeps and LED
flashes that tell you which
programming step you are in.
There are two parts to the beep
sequence. The first set of beeps
indicates the 'Setting Number
(Question), e.g. Brake/Reverse
Type, and the second set of beeps
i n d i c a t e s a S e t t i n g V a l u e ,
e.g. Reverse Lockout. Answering
"No" to a Setting value will cause
the ESC to ask for the next value
in that section. After a "Yes" answer
is accepted, the ESC knows you aren't
interested in any other option in that
section, so it skips to the first option in

Note: If you answer "no" to all Setting Values for a
particular Setting Number, the ESC will keep whatever
value had been previously programmed. Only by
answering "Yes" to a Setting Value will the ESC

Manual Programming TORO Micro is as simple as
answering a few questions. The TORO Micro asks
questing by beeping a setting number, followed by
the possible setting values. There are eight settings
that can be programmed in the TORO Micro.
