Default ESC Wooo's

Have two esc that are not working properly. Both will work the planes control surfaces when battery is plugged in. Hi model, motor beeps rhythmically and motor twitches, like it's gonna turn. Electrifly motor beeps a steadier beep, but no motor turns. Both esc are probably 10-15 yrs old. Are they junk?

Thanks in advance

Have you tried another motor, to rule that out as the common issue?

Can you do the motor-as-generator test?
(Re)winding and building motors - RCG (sticky) → opening post → #40 Generator test.

It could be a poor power connection (connector or soldering) somewhere between the powerFETs in your controller and (or in) your motor.
Several possible causes, locations and solutions:
Motor stuttering? Won't run? Read before asking. - RCG

Thanks, I just took the motor off of the plane today and was gonna try a different motor and also I'm looking at the connections on the motor.
