So you just got your new ESC or maybe you upgraded your controller... Either way, you'll need to pair your remote to your ESC. In many cases your remote will come Pre-Paired, but just in case this is some good info to have.
While some remotes like the Remote Nano pairs automatically, others need to be put into a pairing mode. If you have a VESC this isn't the tutorial for you. This applies to the Plug and Play Single Belt/Hub and Dual Belt/Hub ESCs.
This tutorial applies to the V5, V6, and V7 remotes. An example of each are shown below. Most of you will have the V6 at this point.
The tutorial is basically the same for all of the different types of remotes with slight differences.
Here are the steps to begin the pairing process:
Step 1: Be sure to fully charge both your board and your remote.
Step 2: Turn on Your Board while keeping the remote off.
Step 3: From the on position, Press and hold the power button of the ESC until the blue light begins to flash.
Step 4: Power on the remote then locate the small hidden button on the back of the remote.
(If you have the V7 there is a small button near the area your pinky rests while using the remote)
It may look like a screw hole at first but you'll notice that it is smaller than the other holes.
Step 5: With a mechanical pencil, pin, or paper clip single press the hidden button once. You will see the Remote begin to light up and search for a near by ESC. Let the remote do it's thing, it may take a second. While waiting, gently press on the accelerator and see if your motors start to spin. You can also try holding the hidden button down if pairing mode on remote does not begin with a single press.
You must get your remote into pairing mode BEFORE the ESC times out and exits out of pairing mode itself (Blue LED will stop blinking and become solid, indicating that the pairing mode has timed out). If this happens you must begin this process over again.
You're all Set! Your controller should have paired to your ESC. Have fun riding :)
