Default New electric set up on my yardbird MiG-29 Question



I have an 18A speed controller and my motor is a B2208/12 1800KV. I don't know the make. any way when i plug in the battery the motor beeps once twice and three times then keeps beeping and never arms. I have all of the throttle settings to the minimums. any suggestions?

Reverse the throttle channel?

Have you tried to search for the instructions? Might be able to search a part number?


Buzz.

Yeah it's not getting an arming signal. If reversing the throttle (REMOVE THE PROP FIRST! ) doesn't fix it, try this.

TX on, throttle off, plug in the pack for the plane. Move the throttle to full on. Listen for a single or double tone. Move the throttle to off. It should arm, as it sounds like it has a fail safe or has too recognize the throttle range before it arms.

I reversed the throttle the other night and it did run but it went straight to full throttle so I figured I had it right first. i will have to try Glacier Girl's advice.

Thanks I will let you all know how it works out.
