Speedcontroller?

Post by combatgoblin »

I am trying to set up an electric ssc ship but I can not get it to work.I am using a 2650 4cell battery and a 60 amp speedcontroller.
so this is what happens when I plug in the power the SP beeps but I get no power to anything,if I plug a reciever battey into the battery slot in the reciever I get power to the ailerons and elevator so if anybody has any suggestions let me know thanks.

Don,
Have you tried cycling your transmitter throttle from low to high after ensuring it really was reaching low and you do not have sub-trim and ATV preventing that?

My concern now is, that if you have a BEC circuit on the Speed controller, plugging a battery into the receiver AT THE SAME TIME may well fry the controller.
Don't ask me how I know that!!
