Default Mini plane motor issue, help????

I bought a TechOne Mini Piaget. I bought the techone motor and speed controller to go with it (they have a kit that includes servos). Anyways, this motor just doesn't function as you can see from this video:

I've tried the following:
- Using a 72mhz rx and tx, but it just beeps saying it doesn't find a signal
- using a different FASST rx, same problem
- Changing the timing of the motor though all of the ESC values
- Tried using 3 batteries, two that were 2 cell and one that is 3 cell

I TALKED TO TOWER AND THEY SENT ME A NEW MOTOR AND ESC AND IT DOES THE SAME THING. So I have TWO of these that do EXACTLY the same motor problem and the damn thing just won't turn properly!!

Please help if you have ideas or know why this techone stuff is such JUNK

Thanks
David

What are the end points of the throttle channel? Have you tried another ESC motor combo you know works? Do you have to calibrate the throttle channel with the ESC? If it just beeps and beeps, throttle channel is reversed. Just tossing idea out that you most likely have all ready tried.


Buzz.

P.S. The plane does fly well. I have the Hobby King version.

I think it is the ESC. I have a hobbyking micro 12amp ESC that I think I'll wire in and try instead. This is kind of silly that it is this difficult to get this going. Lol!
