Please do be careful as I do not want the jet to take off on you and keep me posted.
Yes throttle was set at lowest setting and even trimmed down. 2 different batteries were tried. I checked plugs on motor and they seem ok. When I tried the spare ESC I had,, it worked fine with that motor. ESC will not let me enter the program mode. Just no response at all from ESC. You didn't mention it but I also need the left hand stab/elevator. I have sent emails to BH directly too but have gotten no response...
