Help!
wacked up esc/motor... WHATS UP WITH MY MOTOR?

I got ine of the balsapr fiegao ips brushless motors w/ ips "A" gearbox and bp10 amp esc combos. I hooked everything up per the instructions for the first time and all i get when i power it up is a little pipping nose and the the prop starts spinning one way then the other and just keeps changing directions. I checked all of my connections and nothing is wrong! WHAT IS WRONG?!?!?!?!?

Sounds like a dead phase. Double check the speed controller to motor connections (all 3 wires). If that doesn't work, either the motor or the controller has a dead phase. My bet would be on the Feigao but that's based on 16 Castle Phoenixes without a single failure and 1 bad Feigao out of 3 not any industry-wide statistical info.
