    Hi.

    I have an RVJet I bought 2 years ago but did not setup or fly. I attempting to set system up but cannot get motor to work (this is the RVJET Power Pack). It beeps, and beeps, and beeps... .
    Is there a video out there I can look at?

    I have a Futaba 7C controller, 3S1P 16000 LiPo (charged and confirmed). ESC is plugged into the receiver channel 4, I turn on transmitter with throttle full on, plug in LiPo, get series of beeps.
    I than I move throttle down to full off (or not, doesn't seem to matter).
    Than I shut Tx off, disconnect LiPo.
    Next I hook up NiCad to Rx, turn on Tx, hook up LiPo.
    Sometimes the motor beeps, sometimes no beeps.
    Moving throttle up and down has no effect on motor. AAAAARRRGGG!!!!

    You might guess that I am a little frustrated.

    I am an avionics tech, I work on those big plastic A/C Boeing makes. I fix the electronics and networks everyday but this is kicking my behind. (embarrassing).

    I have everything ready to install if I can get confirmation system works.

    A little help, a video perhaps?

    Thank you, B

    Well, it turns out it was the ESC is bad. Thank you RVJet! They are sending me a new unit as I type this in. Have a nice day, Brian.

    Follow up
    Spoke with someone at event explained the situation
    Turns out I have the endurance power pack
    And with that speed controller you need a 6 cell battery
    I was using a 3 cell 2300ma battery
    He said that Dec needs a 6 cell to work
    So ordered a 6cell battery from them
    We
    Will !st you know what happens
    Am hoping for the best
