I have just got my new AR7200BX and I can't get my CC Ice Lite to calibrate I thought it was the CC(http://www.helifreak.com/showthread.php?p=3604468) however when I tried changing the rx for a AR7200 it worked perfectly.

Anyone else had this issue?

Try expanding your throttle channel end points to about 110%

and possibly moving your throttle trim lever all the way down

Will try the sub trim but not hopeful.

Plug a servo or a device that can measure pulse width into that channel and make sure the Rx Throttle output is working as expected.

I have tried all that, but when I plugged the esc into my AR7200 it worked straight away no problems. Therefore the problem is with the unit. Apparently it can happen when using a BeastX with a satellite receiver only.

Are you using a satellite with the AR7200BX, and is it a DSMX satellite?

If the answer is YES, you are using a satellite, the satellite MUST be a DSMX type, not a DSM2 type.

Not using a satellite at all just the ar7200bx.

Problem solved - connect the CC esc but power the AR7200BX with a separate BEC. HugoCraft on this link explains the reasoning - http://www.helifreak.com/showthread.php?p=3611061.

Then once done you can remove the separate BEC and use the one in the esc.
