Default fly 11.1 v 2100Mhg

I have a great planes ultimate biplane with a electrifly 35-30-1250 outrunner , ss-35 esc, and a electrifly 11.1 v 2100mh Battery. I just put this thing together and when I advance the throttel it will spin the prop slowly for about 3 seconds or until I get to 1/2 throttle then it quits, then if I give it throttle again it will slowly turn while it is really jerky making a nnnnnnnnnnnnn sound and it never gets any faster no matter what throttle I give it. Any ideas? Thanks

try playing with different combinations of the three wires between the motor and the esc. One of them will make it run in reverse, but another may solve your problem. he "experts" says this isn't supposed to happen, but it has to me two or three times.

Also, is your battery at full charge?

Yes my battery is fully charged and I tried swapping wires around but it still does it. Any other ideas?[&o]

You know that those SS ESC's have a safety arming feature. The throttle needs to be advanced fully, then back to zero, before the motor will run.

I found the problem, it was a bad solder at the esc connection. Resoldered it and it runs like a champ. Thanks for all of you help.
