Default AeroCruiser Speed Control Problem

I have a question about my Aero Cruiser speed control. I hooked it up and when I turn on the motor, it starts, even though it should stay in the neutral position until I move the throttle stick. I have tried switching channels, but the motor still does the same thing.

I retuned the speed control to Hobbico, and they sent me a new one back, but this new one does the same thing as the old one. I then started thinking that it could be a problem with my radio. Could this be possible that the radio could shift its neutral position, of do you think it is the speed control?

All suggestions are welcome.

Default RE: AeroCruiser Speed Control Problem

When you say "neutral position," is the throttle lever all the way down? The throttle stick should not be centered. If you connect the ESC to another channel whose stick springs back to center, the motor will run at half throttle. Moving the stick one way should shut it off, and moving it the other should make it go to full throttle.

In case you do have the throttle stick in the proper position, try reversing the throttle channel on the transmitter. Also make sure the trim tab is centered. Shut everything off, turn on the transmitter, then plug in the battery on the speed control. Always remember to turn on the transmitter first.
