No servo movement after installing new motor


I have a Cessna T206 (Famous - Winsky or whatever, as it seems that there are many manufacturers for this model). It used to fly on a Towerpro 2408-21.

Minutes ago I installed a new motor and esc. When i connected everything up and gave power, a problem occurred. Motor was running good, but only gave me one beep and i had no servo movement. Everything is connected correct. Forgot to mention that receiver is flashing when on power (Master not the satellite - Satellite is rock steady)

Any ideas why i don't have servo movement and receiver flashing ?

(I tried to bind again and again, but no good)

Try the RX + servos, without the ESC with a 4 cell battery pack, to see if it functions and can bind. It sounds like you blew the RX somehow.

Everything turned to be ok. It seemed that i didn't made all the connections correct.

Dumbass for once more.

Well, you figured your problem out didn't you?

And for future reference, eBay is the worst place to buy rc electronics from, unless they're by known and trusted manufacturers, and are in NIB condition.

Never had any problem with gear bought from Ebay. Even a Gulang gyro i ve bought, though i thought it caused me a problem, it turned out to be a broken tooth in tail belt at a heli i have.

This doesn't mean of course i will never encounter a problem.

For the history : I have connected wrong the esc with the throttle pin in the receiver.
