Default Not getting power to motor, ESC or Motor?

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?
