Devo7e control set up was created by Bry1
Hi all
I have just modded my Devo 7e, I am using it to control a twin motor bait boat which has been rewired and upgraded to 2.4ghz. The boat has two torpedo motors each controlled by separate esc. These are Mtroniks 15’s the left stick controls the right motor and the right stick controls the left motor.
The problems I’m have are the right hand motor doesn’t sound it is running at the same max rpm as the other motor
The other problem is when I put both motors into reverse the left motor runs intermittently until I reduce the rpm on the right motor,
Has anyone got any suggestions as to what the problem maybe
I ave also added a third switch to the transmitter as this operates a bait dropper, the other two original switches operate the lights and a fish finder on the boat.

Try
swap the channels for escs to determine if esc/motor problem or Tx/Rx problem.

Calibrate Tx
Calibrate ESCs

Hi Gerry
Thanks for the reply, I have already done what you have suggested but it just transferred the problem to the other motor.
But it has now got worse and the right hand esc is now blowing fuses!
I’m assuming that the esc,s have now blown?
It has also been suggested the best way to have the controls is to add a mixer and have the throttles for both motors and steering on one stick?

what about if only one esc is plugged into the rx at a time.

have you disconnected one of the red wires from one esc at the servo lead?

Didn’t try only connecting one and yes I have disconnected one of the red wires

Any progress?

you could also swap motors on each esc to determine if motor or esc is problem.
make sure both motors spin free by hand.
are you spinning one motor CW and the other CCW? some brushed motors might not like spinning backwards.
is there a brake function on the escs? should be forward and reverse only for boat, no brake.

I too would have suggested a master throttle and a mixer arrangement for control on one stick.
