Just got my Rex and soldered the deans to the lipo bat and esc and nothing is happening. I was expecting it to start beeping but nothing. Can someone give me some clues or directions??? Could I have possibly damaged the esc via the solder? Tested the leads with a meter and lipo looks fine?? Any help appreciated.

Thanks

Did you connect the motor? The beeping is produced via the motor.

Rob_T that did the trick. Never seen the connectors that came with the motor and I guess I didn't install it right. When I took them of and directly connected the motor terms with the ESC terms, it started beeping. How are you supposed to use these connectors anyway?
Are you supposed to solder the wires to the little wells at the end of the connector. Thanks again Rob_T.

Yes just solder the wire into the wells place shrink rap over the wires first than connect then heat and shrink.

Yes.

What I do is tin the wire then melt a little solder into the "bucket" on the connector, then put the wire into the connector while the solder is still liquid.

The male connector goes to the motor, the female to the ESC (thats so nothing can short out when they're unplugged).

Dont be tempted to cut the motor wires. You'll have a devil of a job getting the insulation off to solder them if you do.

You said "What I do is tin the wire then melt a little solder into the "bucket" on the connector, then put the wire into the connector while the solder is still liquid."

You should heat the "bucket" at the same time as you have the solder and the tinned wire in it and then remove the heat and let it cool without moving it. You are asking for a "cold solder" connection with your method.

Yes, it's wire in then iron off in that order. My description wasn't that good. I guess that's what happens when you try to describe something you've been doing so long its become automatic
