Hi there,

A friend's Align 35 A (governor) ESC is making al the correct sounds when powering up, but when he tries to actually use it (collective/throtle up), then the ESC will not turn the motor and it enters the programming mode.

Any ideas?

Make sure the throttle is at 0% when you power up. It sounds like you are going into programming mode on power up.

OK. The throtle channel is not reversed.

It is not going into programming on power up.
It goes into regular mode with throtle stick low o npower up.

It goes into programing mode with the throtle stick high on power up as it should.

After normal power up, when I try to actually spool up, then it suddenly goes into programming mode...

What beeps does it make on power up with stick left at zero?

Power on
TX recoqnized
and then settings?

Or just the first 2?

Throttle curve?

It beeps normally (1 beep, 2 beeps, 1 beep, 2 beeps)...

Then when I try to spool up, it fails to turn the motor and goes into programming mode.

Very strange, does not sound like that should be possible. Have given full throttle many times after a power up, doesn't go into programming like that.

Hi zrdcorp
DONT get me wrong but in model helicopter world thay have the battery protection set to high discharge rate i set mine to the center one 65% i then spoke to NHP who recamend the same as MHW high discharge , i think there reason is that the battery will not be able to provide the power to the motor at the current it wants.
IF I AM WRONG I AM SURE SOMEONE WILL CORRECT ME

REGARDS adheli
