    RE: savage xs initial setup

    if i remember right it wont beep when your setting up your remote till you get the full throttle full reverse and neutral set then it beeps

    look at the lights on the esc they should blink and change color as you set the throttle/reverse/neutral

    4s lipo may be the problem. That esc can only handle 3s max. It may be going into an overload protection and not allowing the ESC to arm. If you have a 6 cell nimh you might be able to get the ESC setup (calibrated) to the radio system. If you want to dig deeper into the ESC settings you can look into getting the Castle Link wiring harness and then download the Castle link freeware from castle creations website.
