Control) for Super Linearity &
High Torque & Extreme Slience
New sensor technology has changed the feel,
performance, and overall tune-ability of the new Axe ESC and
Motor in ways some have never experienced. Field-oriented
Control is the name of this new tech, and is something all new to
the scale trail, rock racing, and rc world in-general. This new style of
sensor allows extremely accurate control and sensing of the motor
while maintaining extreme performance and reliability. The motor and ESC are
able to match the RPM of the motor to your throttle position under all driving conditions. This
greatly improves down hill driving giving this system the ability to drive down hill under complete control.FOC
technology also makes the whole system extremly silent, the motor doesn't create the annoying PWM noise when it is running.

Intelligent Torque Output & Speed
Closed-loop Control for Easy Control
Not just a new ESC and motor, the new FOC sensors, combined with Intelligent Torque
output and closed loop speed control mean the ESC and motor will maintain the
motor’s Torque level and RPM as the vehicles conditions change. Uphill, down hill,
under load, you name it, your Axe system will do what you’re telling it to do.

Battery Reverse Polarity Protection
RCHobbywing's AXE FOC Crawler system has been designed with a
very unique feature protecting your ESC from damage caused by
Battery Reverse Polarity, so no matter how many times you reverse
the battery connections the AXE ESC and the paired motor are safe
from damage. Maybe this feature is the first in R/C Car industry.
protection circuitry frees you
from worrying about damage
caused by reverse installation.
Applicable to All Weather & Track Conditions
Waterproof has been taken to a new level with the Axe System. Completely sealed ESC
design with robust heatsink case design ensure the ESC is ready for anything you throw
at it. The motor as well, is sealed, and combines a completely new sensor harness. No
messy extra steps to make your system water proof.
(Note: please dismantle and clean the motor and put some lubricant onto the bearings
after using it in some harsh conditions.)

High Driving Efficiency for Long Battery Life
Extremely efficient design comes from the combination of new methods. The FOC
sensors provided significant improvements to overall motor performance when
compared to standard brushless setups. Runtime is increased dramatically while
maintaining exceptional levels of power and response.

Professional Drag Brake Adjustments &
Super Parking Capacity
Drag brake rate, and drag brake tuning allows scalers to adjust not only the
hill/hold/drag brake, but how quickly the brake applies. This allows high
speed driving with out sudden jerks or stops when releasing the throttle. The
drag brake itself is super charged, and able to be run at extremely high levels.
Compared to a standard crawling brushless setup, the drag brake in the Axe
System can be rated at %200 in comparison.

Built-in Bluetooth for Connecting
the Mobile APP Directly
Built in Bluetooth connectivity means exactly that. The ESC has Blue Tooth built right in!
Nothing extra is needed to access the ESC’s complete on board programming but your smart
phone device and the Free Hobbywing App from your App Store. That’s right folks, the
Bluetooth feature is BUILT INTO the ESC. No extra devices, wires or connections required!
APPs will be available both IOS and Android.
Built-in Bluetooth Module

Mobile APP Directly
Advanced and Secure Electronic Switch
The dust, dirt, and waterproof switch housing ensures a long reliable life for your
ESC, will not suffer from the problems most standard on/off switches encounter.
Advanced and Secure
Multiple Programmable Items
With enough settings to keep your vehicle running “just right”, there are also timing/boost settings, just in
case it’s not fast enough, this feature allows you to unleash some extra top speed from your Axe System.
Sometimes the trails are long and winding, so more wheel speed is welcome!
New firmware (01-00.2.01) for the XeRun AXE ESC
has improved the following features
• New Feature Added - RPM/Throttle
Matching - 3 Settings.
RPM/Throttle Matching, allows you to
adjust the way your system will react to
changes in load/terrain on trail. The
setting can be used to create a "brushed
motor" feel. If you like the way a brush
motor drives, use setting #1. Setting #2
(Default) is like the original ESC. Setting
#3, improves the consistency of the motor
RPM over different loads.
• New Setup Process - Automatic Motor Pairing
Improved these Issues: like loose rear endplate,
severe impact, or abnormal heat (during the
operation) abnormal power output occurs to
the motor. This process allows you to reset your
motor F.O.C. for the update and calibrates the
motor sensors to the firmware. See below for
complete details and the simple walk through.
• Motor "punch" or instant start up -
The motors response to instant throttle inputs, or
"clicking" to full throttle has been improved.
• Drag Brake -
Minor changes to how the drag brake operates to to
be more smooth and responsive.
• Motor Operation
Improved high rpm efficiency.
• More RPM
Overall, slight gains in RPM, and basic performance
• 550 Size Motor
Update includes additions for the new AXE 550 size
2700 and 3300 kv motors
1) Update the firmware version to 01-00.2.01, the AXE ESC must be connected AXE 540 motor.
2) You must do the “automatic motor pairing” when updated the ESC firmware,。

The course of AXE "Automatic Motor Pairing"
1)ESC does not detect throttle signal, please check whether the throttle wire is plug reversely, or plug the wrong channel, and whether the radio is opened.
2)The throttle is not at the neutral position, and the esc needs to be calibrated.
1)please check whether the throttle wire is plug reversely, or plug the wrong channel, and whether the radio is opened.
2)Whether receiver is damaged (Especially whether the throttle channel is damaged). You can plug the ESC throttle wire into the steering channel of receiver to test.
3)If the firmware version of ESC is 01-00.2.01, Please first check whether the throttle ratio of the radio is not set to 5:5 (e.g. 7:3), if not, set to 5.5.
Battery pack voltage is not in the normal range, please check the battery voltage.
The default motor rotation does not match the vehicle. The motor rotation can be set to the opposite direction through APP.
1)Check the sequence of ABC wires connected ESC and motor is correct or not. They must be corresponding to each other.
2)Check whether the connection position of ESC and motor has false soldering or other poor contact.
3)When update firmware of esc, or the endbell of motor is loosened or suffer acute crash, need to do the “Automatic motor pairing”. The specific steps are as follows:
a)Unplug the throttle wire from the receiver and remove the pinion (only remove the wheels can do)
b)Connect battery and ESC power on. After completion of ESC self-check, press SET key for 3 seconds, the motor goes into self-matching automatically, the motor will rotate during the whole process.
c)After completion of matching, ESC will restart and report lipo cells. Then re-plug the throttle wire into the receiver again to operate normally.
Note: The previous fireware version of 01-00.1.12 needs to press SET key for 10 seconds. The matching parameter is fewer. It will not restart automatically.
1)One cycle of Red light flashing: ESC enters the status of low voltage protection.
2)One cycle of Green light flashing: ESC enters the status of overheat protection. Run it after the temperature of ESC lowered.
3)Two cycles of Green light flashing: ESC enters the status of overheat protection. Run it after the temperature of motor lowered.
No matching magnetic code information was detected.
1)Check whether ESC is connected to magnetic code wire(also call sensor wire) of the motor.
2)The current firmware of ESC does not match motor. For example, if 01-00.1.12 and previous firmware connected with 550 motor, it is not supported. It only supports 540 motor. Update to 01-00.2.01 and afterwards firmware will support 550 motor.
1)Make sure that bluetooth is on, the connection mode in APP system should be set to bluetooth connection.
2)If the bluetooth of ESC cannot be accessed after open the APP. Please chech whether the location of cellphone is opened, if not, open the location.
3)Whether other devices are connected to the bluetooth of ESC, change the name and password of bluetooth in advance to avoid such problem.
4)If the signal is disturbed, connect cellphone and ESC in a close distance. Reopen ESC, bluetooth of cellphone and APP to connect again.
