    Default ESC Timing

    My question concerns the timing offered by the Seaking ESC. What does the timing do when you change it to a higher number. Most guys have set theirs on 15 and so have I. But what if I use a larger number offered by the programming card?

    Then your ESC will be set at a higher timing mark.
    What's the recommended timing for the motor you're using?

    I don't know, I am using the Leapord 4082, 1600 KV. I realize the timing would be set higher if I choose a higher number. LOL. I guess I am asking what would the benefit be if the number is higher. Will it do damage to the ESC or motor, or would it be faster etc.

    From what I have read, adding more timing than specified for your motor will not aid performance very much, it will however add unecessary heat and strain to your system. Your Leopard 4082, 1600KV is a "Y" wind motor and the timing should be set to 11.25 Degrees.

    D wind motors 0-5 degrees, Y wind 10-15 degrees.

    Good point, I was using the Turnigy/Seaking values common for timing.

    On the Turnigy/Seaking you can use either 0 or 3.75 degrees on D winds & either 11.25 or 15 degrees on Y winds.

    With Wye-wind motors, the higher the amp draw the more timing is required. A motor with low amp draw will usually run most efficiently with ~10*. High amps may require 15*-20*. Too little timing for the amp draw can cause overheating due to reduced efficiency. To optimize timing requires testing for performance and temperature. Or just use 10*.
