Default Motor won't run continually

I just got an Astro 05 Brushless Motor and Jeti Speed controller with BEC. When I connect it to the receiver, I get 2 beeps from the Controller (one low and one high). When I move my throttle stick forward, the motor spins up and immediately stops. If I move the throttle stick extremely slow, I may get the motor to spin for about 2 seconds. Any ideas?

Sounds to me like the battery doesn't have enough charge and the bec is taking the motor off line. They take it off at a certain voltage so you don't totally loose the battery and can keep control. Charge the battery up and try it again if you haven't.

Default Thanks!

I'll try that. I guess my battery could have been run down from all the previous trial and errors.

Any further Comments are suggestions are welcomed at the Airplanes --> Beginngers Forum
