FIELD LINK PORTABLE PROGRAMMER FOR FLYING anyone use this?
« on: February 07, 2021, 09:34:52 AM »
I was just on the Castle site and saw the field link portable programmer, has anyone used this? It seems like the useful setting is the governor gain and maybe the motor timing.

Best,   DennisT

It does work at the field if you have a laptop, but in my experience is just as well used at home. It is nearly night and day switching a Castle esc from the R/C mode (default) to the C/L mode. Plus I changed the prop strike setting (i.e. Peak Amps), but only after I fried a motor on a noseover on take off. There is also what type of spool up and shut down you like. I only used it at home, and only twice for my last electric plane.
 At a larger meet once, my dad's setup was totally off and I forget which member here happened to have the link with him and saved my dad's bacon that day.
