Brandon and Guys...

Hi, I've been reading on the sidelines for the last several months waiting for FMS to finally offer some decent retracts to replace my burnt out V2's or whatever they shipped out to replace the first burnt-out pair that caught fire... I've just been been flying all my 3D Heli's and 3D Planes instead of my beloved Frankie...

Anyway HK sent me a link this morning of a new 1400mm F8F and I just wanted to share it as it was kind of cool looking... Not sure who builds this one...

http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature...&v=tFmLjm27ktI#!

Happy week to all...
bnick

I just got to open and build my 1700mm P51 I got from BH, but when I connected my 6s batt to the ESC there was no beeps coming from the ESC/motor. I took the ESC and motor of the plane and bench tested the motor with another ESC so the motor is fine. Then I tested for continuity the 3 motor wires from the ESC board to the bullets and thats good also. The ESC internal bec power works (5.5v) to move the servos, but the ESC fails to make any arming beeps and there for no throttle movement from CH3 on my receiver.

Has any one had a problem like this? I think the ESC is a dud but, before I try to work this out with banana, is it even worth it? Should I just replace the ESC with something better?

oh and the ESC is labeled FMS but its a ztw 85amp sbec 2-6s

thanks

I've seen this before, Try and initialise the esc first.

Put your throttle stick at full throttle, then plug it in and listen for arming tones or 2 seconds...then immediatly bring it back to idle. then calibrate the throttle as normal

if that doesn't work, try the same as above, but, try the throttle stick at 1/2 throttle when plugging the batteries in.
