Hi, after a recent crash, well, really, just a heavy arrival a month ago, I replaced the canopy & U/C on my T-rex. Came to fly it this weekend, & the ESC would not arm. Yes the TX is on & has the correct Xtal. When i connect the lipo on the rex, i get the first music, then instead if the 2 beeps, it just keeps on beeping, meaning, i assume it does not want to play. It is the original Align esc, using 3 x2100 Thunder Power cells, underslung between the u/c legs. It charges up ok, & the voltage is over 11.2v. So, have any of you guys got any ideas, before i start tearing it all down & stuffing new bits into it ? Cheers for now. Ray

Have you checked the Tx to make sure the end points have not changed? Sounds like it is not arming. Go into the Tx menus and check the throttle end points. Also go back and do the setup routine again. All this failing I would consider a new ESC.

I have had this probelm before after a crash or even sometimes a really hard landing. I found that I could get it going again by just reprogramming the ESC. Go through the programming sequence again and see if the ESC comes back to life again. If not, then it is time to get a new ESC.

mine does that sometimes when i put the radio in the hold mode. if it happens i unplug the receiver and put the radio to non-hold and it comes back to life. you might try that before buying a new one

Cheers helichomper, I will certainly give it a go. I already have a CC 25 doing nothing, but it's always best to try all angles. Thanks. Ray
