I have a very odd problem, never seen this one before. set up new ikon in my 766 everything working great on the bench, ikon running the gov. Take outside to test hover. No throttle motors turns to about 300 rpm. REload firmwear for cc and the ikon samething. so I try new cc 120 esc problem still there. put servo in ikon for throttle works fine. If I bind a reg rx in it both esc work fine. but when I connect to the ikon 300 rpm. So I reloaded everything new model in my dx 18 start all over again reset ikon to default and esc, problem still ikon everything works on the ikon. tried setting up with no gov, same problem set up esc gov, same problem. Any ideas? Cliff

"Fail safe" settings for the ikon is what keeps popping up as I read your post.

However, on bench all is fine then take outside and motor at 300rpm?

Missing details from bench to field.

*Servo monitor screen...what is the Tx throtle output?

servo monitor on ikon and dx18 show full throttle, after setup had to wait a few days. ikon boots up normally, and so does the esc cc160 counts off cell then beats tell me it ready.

I'm sure you calibrated ESC as well as IKON, just thinking out loud here.

What happens if you disabled GOV?
servo monitor on ikon and dx18 show full throttle
Tx throttle servo monitor output should be zero

did the calibration on esc and the ikon, did disable the gov and still does the same. I all so tired the both esc on a separate rx and heli motor run fine on both esc's. But when I connect to the ikon 300 rpm. I plugged a servo into the ikon in servo port 1 and servo works on throttle. But not the esc.

even turned off the gov in the ikon and tried gov on esc, nothing changes, motor runs about 300rpm. Both escs work on separate rx. IF I put the esc in airplane mode on escs, motor runs up to full power, Then I plugged into the ikon, only 300 rpm. Odd thing is I can plug a servo into ikon throttle channel and servo works.

OK...we know that ESC, Motor, Rx and Tx throtle channel is all good.

Since the ESC is counting batts and then arming, thats indicative of zero throttle input.

So, it must be a heli setting as well as possibly a white AUX wire programming issue.

Start with disabling AUX wire and not plugging into anything. Disable gov in IKON as well, even if ESC AUX wire is removed.

I would set ESC into SET RPM (gov), input all info such as gear ratio, motor pole, batt voltage and 3 head speeds requested such as 1500, 1700, 1900...or along those lines. The idea is to hear distinct head speed changes as you throttle up.

Keep Tx throttle curve linear (default)

Your head speeds should change to 3 different speeds at throttle stick relative positions of 30, 70 and 100, respectively.

IF that works, THEN its unto IKON.

Change ESC-SET GOV to either LOW GOV or HIGH GOV, depends on motor specs, software will let you know.

(You can again test motor at this stage. It should ramp up linearly to full power since we disabled the SET RPM, or same as it did in airplane mode)

Program ESC AUX white wire to RPM out and plug into IKON

Enable GOV in IKON and input gear ratio and 3 head speeds

Motor pole count or sensing divider in IKON is half of what you input in ESC when asked. Default is 1, (nitro) So if motor pole count is 10, use 5

IF all goes well, your head speeds will change at throttle stick relative positions of 30, 60 and 100 (practically same as castle esc)

IF not, problem is AUX wire.

FOUND IT your right was the aux wire had pushed out just enough to not give the ikon the signal.

I had a feeling it had something to do with the sensor.

I couldn't reply sooner I was in surgery
