Hi All,

Just got back from an Afghanistan deployment and went to fly the heli but the ESC won't initialize. Odd because I haven't made any changes since I've been gone!

It's done this in the past, where I will turn on the transmitter, turn on heli, set throttle to full, plug in the battery, lower the collective/throttle to idle, and it will just sit there with the light blinking but won't initialize. In the past I've disconnected the battery and tried again a time or two and it's worked, but now I can't get it to work at all.

My setup is a little unique, but really don't think it's a player. Running a 14S A123 pack with the HV-85 and a Z-Power Z50A motor on a Trex 600 stretch to 710.

I've already tested the throttle channel with another servo and it seems to be working.

Any help?

Tim

Try messing with with servo end points of your throttle channel.

Sometimes it takes 105 or a little more on the low end for the HVs to read the throttle as off and initialize.
