Hi, can anyone tell me the importance of the magnetic ring on the ESC?
I do not have one and the speed controller keeps locking out.
Woukd this be the problem?

Its a ferrite ring that works as a transformer blocking RF signals travelling from the ESC to the receiver.
I will not affect the way your ESC works.

Its not magnetic, its just a piece of iron. It basically "Chokes" out unwanted frequencies. Helps with glitching. You normally put them on the ESC by wrapping the ESC lead around it at least 3 times, preferably 5 and then plugging the esc lead into the Receiver.

I second that TomFoolery....wrap it around as many times as you possibly can...the more the merrier!

I have used ferrite rings but they have never helped me, a pcm or spcm receiver will help the most and make sure your esc wires and all off them for that matter have fuel tubing covering them were they touck the heli or each other glitches suck!
