Tekin Clinic – Learn What the Blinking Lights on Your ESC Mean

Tekin Clinic - Learn What the Blinking Lights on Your ESC Mean

Today’s ESCs are extremely intelligent; they could be considered the heart of your car. Monitoring the information the ESC is trying to relay to you, well, that’s another story. Some have computer links, other have portable programming boxes – but almost all of them have the most common communication mechanism; blinking lights.

Every speed control has a cheat sheet included to tell you what the blinking lights mean but let’s face it, that’s not always easy for us guys. Tekin has made it easy for us, creating a page that has explanations AND – get this – actual blinking lights. This page is accessible via computer or portable device (read: iPhone, Android, etc) so now we can match our blinking lights up with a visual version of more blinking lights. Takes the ‘duh’ out of the whole thing.

You can check out the page below, and bookmark it for future reference.
