    there is no button under the blinking light. there is a red button next to the red, blue, and black wire. the button is not labeled.
    do i need to take the fan and stuff off to get inside it to find that button?

    hold da red button down & turn it on. wen da red led starts flashin, let go of da red button.

    wait a few seconds. den press da red button with no throttl input. esc blinks & beeps once.

    giv ful throttl den press red button. esc blinks & beeps twise.

    give full brake den press red button. esc blinks & beeps 3 times.

    wait a few seconds, den try it out
