Wasn't getting that when I did it previously ( it would continue the 4 double beeps, then arm)
After the calibration was done correctly, hooked up the programming card, jumpers set to auto timing & start acc.,waited a second, motor beeped, disconnected flight pack, programmer, reconnected esc , then flight pack. Man does this thing respond to the throttle now ( also upped the Watts/amp draw now that it's working correctly).
Punch outs are going to be a blast with this speedo.
Great customer service from Quantum...and knowledgeable staff.
Thanks again for all the help and suggestions guys.
Glad to hear you got it all worked out. I was at a real loss as to what the problem was after you said you were still having problems. I even went and programmed two new ESCs (100A opto and a 60A) and both worked as I remembered. Maybe I didn't do a very good job of explaining the procedure (I was going from memory ... Might explain
) Good thing is once you do it once or twice, it comes pretty easy.
