did you change the trim or sub-trim after calibration? plug it in then trim to low throttle and see if you get the beep. go to helifreak.com

cable guy is allowed to post there! lmao

well i figured like this some forums allow certain members to insult other members

and if you do it then there friends join in and help them the rants then the victim gets expelled.

if they had a fare system like rcg when you forward the complaint its dealt with
properly .
instead of accusing me of being the problem i dont use RR or HF

i get all of my help and advice from the good members of rcg and i recommend rcg to all of my friends.

i try to hear no evil see no evil speak no evil to keep the blood pressure down
thank you for the advice kind sir ill give it a try

The ESC uses the motor as a speaker to make the beep sounds. So, if it's making a very faint beep it could be because the connections between ESC and motor are not very good, or it could theoretically (I've no experience of this) be because the motor is unable to vibrate for some reason -- possibly simply because it's meshed too tight with the main gear.

Me too

The correct alignment for a motor is if you can just pass a piece of regular printer/copier paper (80g/m2 in the rest of the world; don't know what it is in USA) between the pinion and main gear. It should come out with sharp regular pleats.

Very cool!
I waz gonna say hook up another motor to the esc (not mounted in the heli) to see if the beeps were louder..
But you got it.
Now you just need to mount a sub-woofer on that heli and an MP3 module.

That's a really sweet looking 450.
I'm still training on my Esky. :-)
I was thinking about building an EXI 450 (plastic edition) from scratch next.
Just an inexpensive beat-it-up bird to try things on.
I see that you had one in the past videos.
Sorry I'm off-topic.
I do that too easily.
