I am running a 1400KV 12N14P brushless motor with a 40A ESC and 4S Lipo battery. I have my ESC connected to my arduino and a potentiometer connected as well. I have my arduino sending potentiometer and ESC values back to my serial monitor. I've mapped the 0-1023 range from my potentiometer to output a range of 1000-2000ms pulsewidth to the ESC. When I rotate the potentiometer I can see on my serial monitor that there is a smooth linear relationship to the values sent to the ESC. The issue I'm having is that my motor is only responding to my ESC values in increments of 100. For example, the motor won't respond until I send 1100 and then it jumps up again at 1200, and so on. The motor responds to 1100-1199 signals all the same. And this is true for all increments of 100 up to 2000. Is this an issue with my ESC itself, or perhaps the compatibility between the ESC and motor? Thanks in advance.
