ESC won't power motor
Hey guys! I recently got two hobbyking speed controllers, (http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/s...arehouse_.html)
And hooked them up to my scratch built plane with a "Y" lead. when I first hooked them up with my Turnigy 9X, everything worked fine. I configured them without any problems and the motors spun up nice.
But I just recently am trying to fly the plane, and when I power the ESCs up, the motor beeps like it is armed, but when I try to throttle up nothing happens. I hooked a servo up to the throttle channel and it worked fine.
Another thing I noticed is that if I start it up with the throttle on full, It makes a continuous beeping, and I cant turn it off even by putting the throttle back a 0%
BTW, I am using a 72mhz Futaba radio now.

With a Futaba TX you generally need to reverse the throttle channel.
And starting with throttle up high will put many ESCs into programming mode. If you hadn't reversed the throttle you may have done that initially and got stuck in that mode. You may be part way through programming it. I can't tell if yours works that way because there's no manual on that page.
