I have all the controls working correctly but now the motor will not run. Have made all the motor wire switching but no luck. I am an old guy and this hobby is getting more and more difficult.

450 problem
Do not know anything about calibrating an esc. But I have had this heli for sometime now but have never flown it, but have had the blade spinning many times.

then the the only thing I can think of is the ESC is not getting a proper signal when plugging in or maybe the ESC needs to be reprogrammed

copter xl 450
I have been confused with this copter ever since I bought it as a kit. Seems to me there are other 450s out there with the name Align on them??????
I am getting all kinds of sounds from the unit when I start things up but have not as yet started to search as to what they are trying to tell me!

It could be that the throttle channel needs to be reversed. I would remove main and tail blades before going ANY further. You probably are in the programing mode of the ESC. You also might not have motor rotation correct. You need to read and learn how to program your ESC from a card or using the sticks.

I would highly recommend that you seek some help from a local heli guy or RC shop. Let them get the build tweaked and ready for you to fly. These are not as simple as plug and play.

450 Problem
Thank you all for trying. I will need to dig further into the signals that my heli is sending out after I do the binding.

If you have no manual
Detailing the esc programming..the manufacturer may have it available for download on their website..or searching this site..or "the other one" might yield some step by step instructions..I was able to get all the information to program my YGE esc a couple of yrs. Ago when I had no manual.
