Try this: Not sure if this is the issue...

1. make sure wings are secured.
1. Battery disconnected, transmitter off.
2. Transmitter to full throttle
3. Transmitter on
4. Plug in battery, you'll hear some musical sound followed by beep, beep, beep
5. Back-off throttle to ZERO
6. Disconnect li-po
7. Turn Radio off.

Now, try if it works ...

Plane looks great, what else to expect from you. Looking forward to it's maiden flight.

Question: Is this the way it's supposed to sound?


cheers

Its sounds like there is a lot of vibration. If those are the stcok EDF you might want to change them to HET, Eflite ect.. Those factory EDF are Change Sun and are not recommended at all. Spyro has had bad experience with them he can inform your further. The plane looks good though as usual. D/D you can make any plane look good my hat is off to you. Excellent work my friend. Cant wait till the maiden Phil. Any Idea when that may take place?

DD, just to let you know, those HET's may NOT a true "plug & play either". They are pre-balanced at the factory individually, but doesn't mean they are good to go, right out of the box. Some are, but not all. It took me some work to get some great result on Mark's Continental and on 2 of my airliners. Depends on your luck.
Mark's DHL hasn't flown yet. One reason is because of vibration from the HETs.
The only thing that I know that's truely ready to go out of the box (& economical), are the WeMoTecs. http://donsrc.com/cart/. He sells combo packages if you know what you need.

The reason I stayed with HETs, is because I know I could fix it, if something is wrong. Once they worked, they work GREAT. Listen to the sound of these HETs, on the CONTINENTAL I built. Very clean harmonic sound, but took me all day
Flight Video from yesterday.

Regards,
