The BLX185 ESC was set from factory to default to a LiPo battery
mode.
If any adjustments such as recalibration were made, check to see
that the battery mode has not been inadvertently set to NiMH mode.
Follow these steps to verify battery mode;
1. Raise the vehicle chassis so that the wheels are not touching
anything.
2. With the battery or batteries charged and connected to the
vehicle's ESC leads, switch on the transmitter and then switch
on the vehicle. If a green LED flashes once the ESC is in LiPo
mode. If there is no LED flash on the ESC, and a pulsing noise
is made by the motor, the ESC is in NiMH mode. If you intend to
use LiPo batteries DO NOT operate ESC in NiMH mode, the
batteries may be damaged.

To switch ESC from NiMH mode to LiPo mode perform the following
steps;
1. Connect battery, switch on transmitter, press and hold set
button and turn on ESC. The red LED will flash.
2. Keep holding set button until green LED flashes. The number of
flashes represents the variable number of attributes being
programmed.
3. To enter the battery mode programming function, release the set
button when one green LED flashes.
4. Press the set button to change battery mode between LiPo and
NiMH. One RED LED flash indicates ESC is set to LiPo mode.
5. To save setting, switch ESC off.
