Check the switch on your remote controller, be sure that the one for the trottle servo is not reverse.

Also make sure the trim knobs on the controller are not turned all the way up.

Hopefully you didn't damage the motor by having it rev that high on it's first start up.

ALWAYS make sure all electronics are on and the throttle is in the neutral (idle position) before starting.
