Additional Functions Programmable by Hyperion Emeter or by PC Cable NiCd/NiMH per cell cutoff voltage: 0.6V* / 0.7V / 0.8V / 0.9V Lithium per cell cutoff voltage:
Auto Cut Mode: NO CUT (preferred for glider comp and sometimes helicopters)
Hardware Specs: Dimensions: Controller Board Size
10A-30A: 5~10 cells Ni~, 2~3 Cells Lithium
50A, 80A BEC: 5~12 cells Ni~, 2~3 Cells Lithium
50A, 80A OPTO: 5~16 cells Ni~, 2~5 Cells Lithium
*lighter weight figure is with BEC switch removed
Governor Mode: Active RPM control - range 1 up to 20,000 electrical rpm - range 2 up to 50,000 electrical rpm
Max Motor RPM = [ electrical RPM*2 / # of magnet poles]
- range 3 up to 100,000 electrical rpm
Programming the Titan ESC via Transmitter Stick z
For Tx stick programming, the motor serves as the speaker - so connect your brushless motor to the Titan ESC first.
Remove the propeller from the motor before starting programming!
Futaba Transmitters should have the throttle set to servo REVERSE before using the Titan ESC.
Switch on the transmitter and set the throttle stick to full throttle.
Connect the flight battery pack to TITAN ESC
Wait for 5 seconds; you’ll hear these tones __ -- when setup mode is entered.
Follow the tones listed below for each programming function.
When you hear the tones for your desired function, pull the throttle down, then you’ll hear confirmation tone. The setting is now memorized. You can only change one setting at a time, if you need to change more settings, disconnect the motor battery pack and wait 5 seconds, and repeat the procedure for next setting. It is really very easy to program the Titan. To familiarize yourself with the ESC, let it go through all the tones once, as you follow the text below.
Brake Mode On/Off To change brake mode, pull the throttle stick within 5 seconds of first setup mode tones __ -- After changing the brake mode, the ESC responds with these confirmations: Brake mode changed to OFF _ -

You can resume full power by setting throttle to full stop for a moment and return to full throttle, but remember that it’s time to land your model!

Soft start (Acceleration) When gearbox drive system is used it is highly recommended to enable the Soft start. Disable the soft start function when direct drive system is used or being in speed competition Enable: Disable: VV VV VV VV VV
Timing (advance timing) The controller has three timing modes; Automatic works for ALL types of brushless motors. But for some high-pole-count or homemade brushless motors, you may want to try hard timing for optimal efficiency and power. Auto 7~30 degrees: Soft 7 degrees: -- -- -- -- -- Hard 22 ~ 30 degrees: --- --- --- --- --- Switching Frequency The controller has two switching frequency modes. The default 8 kHz works well with almost all motors, but you may see a gain in efficiency at 16 kHz setting for high-pole-count motors such as Hyperion Z Series Outrunners. 8 kHz:

CAUTIONS! NEVER reverse the polarity from battery to Titan ESC! Be careful, please.
Futaba transmitters should have throttle channel set to “reverse”.
Always test the Titan ESC with your transmitter and receiver before actual use.
When testing, be sure the motor is properly mounted, without propellerattached.
Be sure to check that no one is using your frequency before flight.
Always position yourself behind a spinning propeller, not in front.
Switch off the Titan ESC AND disconnect the battery pack immediately after your flight has ended.
RC aircraft power systems are dangerous. Please act accordingly.
To avoid inadvertent damage to your expensive lithium pack, the default setting for battery type is “3S
Lithium”. You MUST program the battery type before using the Titan ESC. (see note below)
TECH NOTE: Some 50A and 80A 6S ESC were shipped with BATTERY TYPE set other than the default value. For example, a 50A ESC should be 3S default, but the setting was actually 6S from the factory. As such, you should be sure to set the Lithium Cell count via stick programming (or with Emeter or PC Cable) to match your battery, before first use. Warranty Hyperion Titan brushless speed controllers are fully guaranteed against defects in material or workmanship for 12 months from date of purchase. The warranty does NOT cover damage to reverse-polarity connection of the battery, over-spec use, water or crash damage, nor any other claim not arising from a defect in materials or assembly. You must contact your selling dealer with details of the problem before making a return. In most cases, the problem is an issue with radio or controller setup, and can easily be resolved at no expense to you. Controllers returned without notice in which defects are not found will only be returned to the sender at his expense. Crash, water, or reverse-polarity damaged Hyperion Titan ESC may be exchanged with your seller for a 40% discount on new replacement, from manufacturers suggested retail. Many Happy Flights!
