Error indication on my CC Phoenix ICE 100
could you help me figure out what is going on with my ESC?
When I connect the battery I get the initialization beeps, but right after that a yellow LED lights up. When I move the throttle up a red LED starts to blink in addition to the steady yellow LED, and the motor beeps twice about every 3 seconds, but no spinning.
Could you tell me what all these indications mean?

Did you train the ESC to the throttle range of your receiver?
From the manual:
2 beeps and flashes - Low Voltage Cutoff:
Your batteries are likely discharged. Check that batteries are fully charged and that Phoenix detects the proper number of cells at power-up.
All Castle ESCs will sound a single beep every 20 seconds to remind the user that the controller is connected to a battery and drawing power. Leaving a controller connected to a battery for extended periods will likely damage the battery.
• Blinks out cell-counts /error codes
• Flashes a little at low throttle
• Flashes a lot at high throttle
• Solid on at full-throttle
• Pulses quickly when governor-mode is locked
Yellow LED - used for Data Logging (Phoenix Ice, Phoenix Ice Lite and Phoenix Ice2 HV only)
• Yellow LED flashes when logging, and is on continuously when log is full.

Power up the ICE at full throttle will clear the data log. Then lower the throttle trim and it will arm. Some flybarless controllers won't allow you to start up at full throttle. For those you have to use the Castle Link to clear the data log.
The Edge series has improved hardware and does not have this problem.
