Does anyone know if the throttle channel needs to be reversed to use an Ice 100 with a AR7200BX on the DX18?

I can't get the esc to setup the throttle end points.

Thx

There is a trick for setting up endpoints with the Ice and BeastX. I don't remember exactly, but I think you just need to power up the beastx with an outside power source (I use an align 6volt bec hooked to a 2s pack). Set your endpoints in the radio at 50/50, set it to high stick and power up the beastx without the Ice plugged in. After it initializes completely, plug the Ice in to the Beastx. You might want to back off the motor from the main gear just in case. It shouldn't spin up, but you never know. I am not positive but I am pretty sure you don't need a flight pack hooked into the Ice. I think the Ice will get power through the beastx. It should let you set the endpoints now.

I think it does this because the beastx always boots up in the low throttle position. That is why you have to power up the beastx first and let it initialize before plugging in the Ice.

I might be a bit off in my explanation, but if you search there is probably a thread out there that explains it better.

Thx Funky..

I did figure out the issue. It is the AR7200BX zero throttle sensing that was the issue.
