Question Motor issues

Have a Seawind, just got it out of storage. All channels work correctly. Throttle is not working correctly.

I arm the motor(full throttle, beeps. Close throttle, beeps). I try to increase throttle and the motor is jerking, little spin. Increase to half and the jerking just stops.

I just built a MIG15 and it has the same issues. Same Tx. This would point me to the transmitter, but everything looks good.?.

Thanks

Try a regular servo in the throttle channel. If it and the other servos operate normally, the transmitter is probably Ok. If a brushless motor oscillates, one of the motor connections is bad and resoldering the connectors will often correct the problem.

Connection to the motor....that was it. MIG is fixed onto the SeaWind. Hmmm, SeaWind had same issue. Glad it was not the Tx.

Thanks Tim.
