Axial AE-3 Vanguard Brushed / Brushless WATERPROOF ESC

Axial’s new AE-3 Vanguard brushless ESC delivers smooth power at all times. Numerous programmable features let you fine tune your set-up to perfectly match any conditions. Superior power and efficiency over standard brushed motors to help you leave the competition in the dust! Manufactured by Castle Creations. Can be used in any of Axial products from the EXO through to the Wraith and SCX10 models - waterproofing has never been so easy. You may want to look at my range of Motors too.

• 2S and 3S Lipo compatible when used with our Vanguard motor (Not all brushless motors are 3S compatible, so be sure to double check the manufacturer’s battery limits for their individual motors)
• Lipo cutoff is set to “ON” from the factory and works with brushed and brushless setup
• ESC can be programmed manually via Castle Field Programming Card or through the Castle Link software interface.
• Integrated heatsinks help dissipate excess heat
• Simple initial throttle and brake programming
• Standard Deans Ultra Plug included
4mm Female bullet connectors for simple plug and play motor connection applications. Eaasy to change out your motor for cleaning or upgrade.
• Compatible with Brushed or Brushless motors, See below for sonnections (Set-up for brushless from the factory)

AE-3 Vanguard ESC Programmable Features: via Castle Field Programming Card or through the Castle Link software interface.

• Brake/Reverse Type – sets ESC’s reverse mode, and how it is applied. Reverse can also be disabled.
• Brake Amount – sets the percentage of braking power at full brake. Low-grip surfaces will require less braking power to stay in control, especially when entering corners.
• Reverse Amount – sets the percentage of power applied when reversing, if reverse mode is enabled. Lower percentage for less speed, higher percentage for more speed.
• Punch/Traction Control – sets the percentage of power applied at start-up. Use less power for low-grip surfaces, use more power for high-grip surfaces.
Drag Brake – sets the percentage of brake that is automatically applied at neutral throttle. Brushless motors have a lot less drag than brushed motors. This mode allows fine tuning to match the slight braking effect of a brushed motor at neutral. Higher percentage of drag brake will give you more braking power at neutral throttle.
• Dead Band – sets throttle sensitivity from the neutral position. Less dead band gives a more instant throttle response. More dead band yields a less instant throttle response.
• Cut-Off Voltage – sets the voltage threshold at which the ESC removes power from the motor. For use with Lipo batteries to retain a safe minimum voltage. This feature can be turned off for use with standard NiMH packs. High capacity NiMH packs (5000mah or higher) are recommended for best results.
• Motor Timing – sets the timing advance on the motor to reduce or increase amp draw, run time, motor/battery temperatures, top speed and punch. Great for fine tuning performance.

Brushed Motor Wiring - Diagrammes HERE

Reversing Brushed Motor Mode:

Use this mode if you wish to use reverse. Use only the red and black motor wires from the ESC. In most applications, the red wire from the ESC will connect to the red wire (or posit ive + side hood) on your motor, and the black wire to the black wire (or negat ive - side hood) of the motor. The white 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.

High Power Brushed Motor Mode:

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 the motor.
