Hi all.

Having some trouble getting anything out of the motor on my 600EFL 3GX with all stock equipment. Its probably something simple which i have missed but can anyone tell me the basics or anything else people know of that will stop the motor from working.

I have gone through the manuals and do what it says about having the throttle stick at half then connect the batteries then bring the stick down.

Appreciate any help anyone could offer.

Thanks

I would make sure throttle End Points are set to 100. Then I would do a factory reset on the esc (AIRPLANE MODE). Then re-bind your TX to RX and give it a shot. It should work then. If it does, continue to set your ESC accordingly.

Ok thanks I'll give it a go when I get back and post how I got on. I have already tried a re-bind but not the esc reset so will try that.

Thanks

Actually, with respect, the throttle end points at 100 may be the problem.
The ICE needs the throttle end points calibrated. Follow these instructions..

I think it is OK to cross post this - If not, my apologies..

It sure does need to be calibrated but not to get it going initially. He can calibrate it once he gets it working which if factory defaulted, it should. If and when he begins his set up, he can worry about the calibration, for now he's just trouble shooting. And thanks for the link.

Yeah i think the problem is more to do with actually getting the motor to disarm, have tried the help in the video starting at 30% and increasing but i get all the way and have no beeps. Im running the 3GX, would there be any issues in that that i need to address that could affect the ESC?

Im trying all sorts of ways of plugging it in and different set-ups but still unsuccessful...

Really frustrating, i don't want to have to purchase the castle link if i don't have to, surely its possible to get it going without this?

Thanks for your help already
