I’m just building a 500 ESP and now I’ve got to the ESC it just won’t power the receiver, if I add a battery to the power channel the speed controller and servos work fine, do I need another battery and regulator as well or have I missed something in the setup?
I was hoping to fly this today but its looking grim now.

I only like to fly gassed up

You should be getting 5.5volts out of the ESC(default setting), have you checked the output voltage.

I wouldn’t no were to start, all I no is if I supply another power to the receiver everything works, unplug the lead from the ESC to the receiver and the motor beeps once and then nothing
Edit

I don’t think the ESC is sending any power to the receiver

To check the voltage on the ESC hookup a volt meter to the pos. and neg. pins in the Rx. I would say the ESC is bad.

The speed controller turned out to be faulty, the ESP worked but the BEC didn’t, anyway the model shop exchanged it and the problem was solved.
