To set up an ESC:
1. If you are using a computer radio, confirm that none of the Tx settings are different than usual. Make sure the aircraft is restrained and prop arc is unrestricted during this procedure.
2. Turn on the Tx with throttle in off position, then turn on the Rx. Wait at least two seconds and then smoothly move throttle to full speed.
3. Wait at least two seconds and then bring the throttle slowly back to the off position (the motor may start). Switch off the Rx and then Tx.
4. If motor operation is satisfactory, set up is complete.
5. If the motor didn't respond or started suddenly during step 3, reverse the throttle function on the Tx and repeat the above steps.

Always make sure the throttle stick is in the off position before you turn anything on. Otherwise, the processor may not initialize.

Additional tips
If the ESC still does not respond, move the throttle trim to the lowest position and try the initialization process again. If that doesn't work, substitute a known good ESC to isolate the problem.

Programmable Tx: The throttle function must be adjusted to the default setting (+/-100%) and the servo center must be in neutral position.

Place the ESC in the propwash because current rating depends on cooling. Overheating may be caused by excessive BEC current. Make sure all servos, control linkages and hinges are friction-free.

When using a 3-cell Li-poly battery, it's important to use a high frequency (>60kHz) ESC.
