What's my ESC telling me?
OK, I'm running an EMAX 40A ESC on my Extra 260. I just noticed a problem. The ESC is supposed to do the following upon power up:

1. One Long Beep
2. Three quick beeps (indicating 3 Cell Lipoo)
3. Music tone indicating the ESC is armed and ready to go.

However, now the ESC is emitting the following beep sequences and at a much reduced volume.

1. One Long Beep
2. Three quick beeps (indicating 3 Cell Lipoo)
3. 20 quick beeps indicating failure of self-check.
4. Music tone indicating the ESC is armed and ready to go.

The motor still spools up and works. So, what could be the reason for the ESC failing it's self test ? I have checked solder connections and everything is good and solid.

...and I can laugh along with you smart asses . Seriously, I tried using another ESC I had laying around in the Extra 260 and everything checked out with motor/ESC. So, that rules out the motor. I then tried using the suspected defective ESC on my Parkzone T-28 motor and received the same problems. So, that much confirms a defective ESC.

Jim,
Check to make sure your throttle setting are set correctly in the radio. Check End points. May be a esc going bad.

It's the Li-picapacapoopoo I tells ya!!!

Grapefruit is acidic with copper and zinc strips you can power the Extra 260 and not need the ESC. Not to mention you could add a secondary set of taps on a grapefruit for a seperate BEC. Energy is only borrowed never spent!!! Long live the grapefruit!!!!

And hey Jim its your fault you should of bought Align.
