TURNIGY Plush 6A esc won't go into program mode

hi. ive just finished my 2 cell parkzone ultra micro sukhoi brushless conversion, using an AP05 micro motor and the TURNIGY Plush 6A.

plugged it in today for first time and it runs well; so much power!!!!!!! on connection, it plays the correct beeps to indicate proper 2 cell count and arming.

but it will stubbornly refuse to enter programming mode following the instructions given. they are to switch on tx (dx6i), move throttle to max, then connect up the esc. it should play a special tune and then 7 tunes in order, each indicating a programming item that you can select by moving the throttle down at that point.

mine just gives the start-up and arming beeps instead, after which you can run the motor normally after you lower the stick. ive tried waiting. ive tried increasing subtrims, and increasing throttle setting in the dx6i menus. they dont work. even tried holding the throttle stick up hard against the stop with tape.

do you think its faulty, or wired up wrong ?

You may need to calibrate the throttle range first.
To do this, have throttle at max then plug it in. Hear low-mid-high, mid-mid, then quickly move throttle to minimum. You should then get a long beep and it is armed. Unplug the ESC.

Now the ESC has learned your min and max throttle settings, and entering programming mode should work the way you describe it the next time you plug in the ESC.

If it still doesn't work, consider getting the programming card for the Turnigy Plush range of ESCs (and many others), it is excellent:

You might find it in other stores as well, branded for Hobbywing Pentium or Exceed Volcano which I think are the same ESCs really (check this out before you buy.)

I have had issues with that card on a 2S setup. Plugging in a 3S battery makes it all work OK. Then you can fly with a 2S battery.
