does it still spin up slowly like in a soft start? because if it doesnt do anything, then something is messed up with ur esc

when i try to spool up slowly with a fully charged battery it will just sit threr and jerk like theres not enough voltage in the battery to initialize the esc.throttle down and try again and it spools up like normal.it does this every time upon flying the following day.thanks for your reply

when u brought the stick back down and started back up again, was it a slow start, or did it follow whatever the stick did? because when u do that, u "re-start" the motor. so something's up with the soft start.

do you think my stock esc is going bad,the heli is only a week old.already had to replace the battery because it was faulty.going flying in about an hour and ill see what happens.i had the local hobby shop set up the heli and from the get go cant seem to get the tail right.ive read that the stock gyro and servo are junk,also i just found on my power settings on my tx was set for uk instead of us,would that make a difference for the soft start,cant wait for that battery to finish charging to see if that makes a difference.thanx again

ok well this time bring the throttle stick up to half stick, and leave it there until it spools up. heck, take a min. or 2 to do it. if it wont spool up, try spinning the rotors at half stick. if that doesnt work, get a new esc. (may b burned out)
