    problem with my electronics?

    hey,

    i moved the electronics (motor and esc) to my bandit from my twister. i didn't have the servo in, well i did for a little but took it out because it didn't work. anyway, NOTHING will work. i rebinded maybe 15 times, tried reprogramming, but the programming won't work, and have everything hooked up. what could be the problem? there is no throttle or anything.

    RE: problem with my electronics?

    after you rebinded the Rx to the Tx, does the LED on the Rx come on solid red?

    make sure you have the ESC plugged into the Rx the correct way.

    make sure the settings on your radio are as they should be when programming the ESC

    check the manual on your reciever. its solid red on the dsm-2c. solid blue may be the right color for the radio that comes with the twister.

    i know that some ESC's have to have the throttle trim set to 0, and the throttle reversing switch in a certain position(normal or reverse)
    not true with all ESC's tho. and im not familliar enough with the twister's esc.

    if you have a BAD servo plugged into the reciever it can effect the ESC.

    been there done that.

    had a buddy do the same thing. tried everything and couldnt get the ESC to work. i took one look at it and saw the ESC plugged into the Rx wrong. its easy to spot that kinda mistake when you have done the same thing yourself
