    Try unplugging the esc and connecting a 4.8v battery to the receiver. If the servos work the esc is toasted.

    Ok thanks. Do you have any ideas why the esc would do this?

    Could be many reasons and it might not even be the esc. Have tried replacing each component with a known working one, if you have, until the problem goes away?

    I think the bloke who said it was the esc is right. I bought a 11.1v lipo and I think I needed a higher esc and its burnt it out. Thanks all for your help very much
