Ok guys, I herd back from HW and they advised everything is operating correctly. The initial 3 beeps then 2 short and 3 long beeps followed by the final single beeps is correct. I want to thank everyone for their help and input. Its great to be able to reach out for help. Thank you.
So, what was their explanation of that sequence ???? Or did they just say , “oh yea, that’s good” .....

Been there, done that and old enough to know better.....

There was no explanation, just that the 2 long and 2 short beeps indicate 12 cells. The manual says the initial 3 beeps is normal power on, the motor will then emit several beeps to indicate the number of cells. No it does not add up but thank you again.

My Kontronik sounds 3 long beeps followed by 2 short beeps.
Long meaning 4 cells and short meaning 1 cell. So it sounds out my 14s.

Anyway, since your beeps are correct, what's with the lack of power? Any explination to that?

My advice, only buy ESCs that have logging. That way if you lack power, or anything, you can look at the log and see if its getting a low throttle signal, huge dips in battery voltage. You can isolate the problem using the logs.

I use only Castle and Kontronik ESCs with logging. I do have a YGE and it flies fine so I don't touch it. ( got it already setup with a used heli )

Anyway, let us know whats going on with the power lacking problem.

Very Good.

Remember... Two or three drops of oil on each motor bearing every 15 flights ...

The loss of power ended up being end point adjustments and then recalibrating the throttle.
