Almost every time I conect my Voltz 35C batteries to the ESC I get a dumb error out of the Jive. Then have to turn radio off, restart an try again.
It beeps one high and one low tone on the error.

Using 6mm bullets. The arcing/spark is ridiculous.

Sometimes takes me 7-10 tries until it finnaly the Jive initiates.

This does not happens with the 25C Turnnigy's with the same connectors.

What is causing the ESC not to initiate?

Maybe bad solder joint? Try to resolder the 35c pack. I'm using CC 5.5mm bullets and they work great. After connecting and the jive doesn't arm does the light on it blink?

I cannot see the light, is under the unit.

I have flown the Voltz pack 6-7 times in this configuration with the 6mm bullets.

This never happened in the winter, just started when the weather warmed up.

My other 25c packs do it, but nowhere as much.

I did all the soldering and inspected it.

Check the light and see how many times it blinks.

I guess I have no other recourse but to unstrapp the sucker and look at the light error code.

Read the manual and there is no audible error codes, only lights.

I bet cha it won't do it indoors when I check it. lol

Thanks
