help on volcano epx pro
 
I just got the volcano epx pro. Charged the battery for about 6 hours and set esc to the book. When I take it out and hit the gas full throttle it cuts in and out. Not sure what it could be. I think it's the battery or the esc. Any help would be great. Thanks

Its either the battery, or you didnt calibrate the esc right.
Why did you set the esc anyway? It should come out of the box ready to go.
and check the LED on the esc when this happens. Let us know what color it is and if its flashing or not.

I messed with because it wasn't running right. It has done it since I toke it out of the box.the light is red and it looks like it's flashing? If I hold it it does fine its when its running on the ground is when it does it. Thanks for the help. :-)

You must change your username (well you don't have to, but every spammer in the world is going to get you if you use a valid email address as your username on RCU).

You can do this by clicking on the gold settings button on the top right of all RCU pages, then by clicking the 'General Settings' tab, then clicking the 'request change' link next to your username. Let me know if you have any difficulties.

flashing red means low voltage.
either your battery is crap or the charger is.
