Help!
Multiplex Pilatus PC6 - ESC Issue

Just assembled my new PC6 and find the ESC will not run the motor. Just a constant series of beeps. All servos function fine.
I am using a Spektrum AR610 receiver and added a new configuration on my DX9 transmitter.

I replaced the ESC with a CC Thunderbird 55 and all works OK. Motor start as it should.

One more question. Does this ESC use a switch mode BEC or linear? I ask because I wonder if the CC TB 55 can support the six servos.

What next? Should I call Tower where I bought it or call Hitec?
Thanks for your help.
Joe

Joe,

Did you try running your throttle trim all the way down? Sometimes an ESC will not recognize the normal throttle off position; try to drop it further using trim or sub trim?

THANKS!!!
That did it. I used the trim and went all the way down with it and it worked. First time I ever had to do that but I mostly use CC ESCs but I don't argue with success!

Thank you very much for the quick response! Now I just have to wait til hurricane Arthur gets out of here so I can fly it!!

Appreciate it!
Joe

Multiplex contracts with Castle Creations on at least some if their ESCs? If you look closely at them, you can often see their name printed on the wires.

Glad that got you going!!
