Mine did the same thing when I installed the receiver. I was at a loss, so I did the following:

Bind to your receiver with a different setup- a receiver pack or plugged into a loose esc and battery. Then, ONLY plug the BEC into the bind port, the throttle cable into the throttle port. That way, you have eliminated the Rx problem, and are only testing the BEC and throttle. Check that your Rx lights up properly when you power it on. If you don't get four beeps, something else is wrong.

Double check that you don't have the throttle reversed.

YEA!!, I followed your instructions above and I have motors and throttle with just the BEC in the bind port and the throttle in the throttle slot. Now what is my next step to figure out what I have configured wrong in the radio. I have deleted the model and started over twice.

What the happened to Hobby King? I've ordered from them for years now. Every time the items I order are shipped the next day during business days. I ordered this plane Sunday & expected it here by this following weekend.
Its now Wednesday & the stuff hasn't even been shipped yet.

I contacted the online chat & they tell me stuff ships in 2 to 3 days. I told them thats never been the case for me before. Is this some new policy they have? They tried to say its always been like that. But I'm living proof that this isn't true. I know from all my other orders over the years.

Im impatient yes. But I'm also one of those that feels if someone pays you for something you have. That you should be respectful & thankful for this purchase & ship items out promptly. I have done the same myself when people buy things from me. I stop shopping at places that don't give you that respect as a customer honestly.

Thats the normal price at 357. Earlier in the year they were selling for 257 for the blue angels one. But it was out of stock in USA. Shipping was going to cost more than the plane from international warehouse. So I held off & bought some other planes from Horizon & motion rc.

I seen the sale for black Friday & cyber Monday of 304. So I figured I'd go ahead and get one now.

This has been discussed numerous times in numerous other threads but here's the deal: We moved the warehouse which caused lots of backlogs and issues with inventory. Due to some COVID related restrictions we've had to limit staff. There are other factors as well so things may be delayed a bit but we're catching up and things should be back to normal soon.

HK has been doing a pretty good job in light of the pandemic and moving the warehouse. I had an order from US warehouse shipped in 2 days last month, then a new order last week that was shipped in 3 days. That's darn good!! (sure glad they have that free shipping straightened out now).

I think mine is on the way. ordered on turkey day and shipped yesterday Tues.) They shipped Fedex. Does anyone know if they require a signature. Suppose to get here Monday and I won't be home. I didn't think it would take 11 days to get here.

Thank you very much for the assistance so far. Can you help me with the next step in figuring out what is wrong with my radio setup....thanks, Bill

If it worked, then you should be able to now plug in your other servo leads and set up the travel, rates, and reverse the ones that need it. I didn't have an issue after mine worked the first time. I never figured out why the esc's wouldn't arm initially. Just curious, what radio are you using?

It had the occasional gust puffs but was light between them. Sounded worse in the mic. than it was.
