I work the late shift. and got home around 1:00 AM. Browsed around the internet and play a game. Then dicided to finish my Trex250. I had already done most the work and was ready to start doing the setup. I pull out of the box, my new AR6100E, the new speed controller and New freshly charged Battery. I connect the servos and speed controller and Binded the receiver to my DX7. Every thing was going smooth. I preset all the funtion on the radio and center the sticks to center the servos. only minor sub trim was needed. I get all the srvos going the correct way. and install the linkages to the swash. Man I thought I must be getting good at this, because everything was working on the first go around. I level the swash to the servos and got the hillex mixer straight. I checked for proper movment and all was good. I get the NIB Hetic Gyro and servo, and I am ready to install it. Mind you every thing is still on. while installing the tail servo and swash servos glitch. then the receiver started to flash. then nothing. I thought I must have ran down the Battery. mind you It only been about 30 minutes into the setup. I get a fresh Battery and nothing. So I go out into the cold garage and find a receiver battery. I connect it and the receiver comes on but now I got a dead servo. I bought the Trex combo that came with the Align servos. Now I got a bad ESC and servo. And really need to go to bed. But I just so upset, I can't sleep.

sounds like you got a bad servo that took out the esc bec function. it has been posted that the bec has no protection built into it to save it from a bad servo or a high amp draw. if the shop you got it from get their stock from alliance then you can call them to get aurthiorzation to send parts in. that suck was their any binding in you linkage ?

No
I know the post was long, and you might have missed the part where, I said everything was running smooth. And also note I said the motor function is not working.

mine was all working and then the esc got really hot. Unplugged battery and started unplugging things until I found out my align tail servo was bad and had a direct short in it. It worked for a few minutes then just stopped.

Test
I also posted this on the Align Trex form. And Tailgunner told me of a test to do. To connect the fight pack to the Battery slot and then connect the speed controler to the Throtle slot and then connect the motor battery. Well I was able to spool up the motor but no BEC funtion after I removed the flight pack. So I guess Jeepworld is correct. the bad servo took out the BEC funtion.
