View Full Version : Not getting power to motor, ESC or Motor?

06-14-2010, 11:48 AM
Ok guys, I'm getting power to the servos, but I'm not getting the beep that signifies the motor is ready. The gyro light does come on, but no beep. I do get some movement out of the motor, but only slightly.

Didn't have any problems Saturday. Glad I wasn't in the air when this happened.

What you guys think it is?

Well this is a tuffy,,if you didnt get your final beep to initialize i wouldnt think the motor would turn at all,,u say it does turn a little? if it doesnt engage motor would be dead still. are you using the stock ESC ? if so maybe time to dump it.

It was the ESC. I had a stock spare one laying around. I figured it was (had just a little corrosion on some of the soldier).

Funny thing it gave no warning. I haven't had any thermal shutdowns or anything. When I first put the Blade together months ago (got it used and slightly broken on eBay, hella deal) it gave me a few shutdowns cause the belt was too tight. But it's been good since then. Oh well, stock stuff what should I expect right?:thumbdown:
