Don't have any experience of the 400, but double check the leads to the RX.

Check...... They're ok.

I noticed the blades were spinning backwards figgure what would happen if i switched the leads on the Speed controller.

I found out the three blue leads (un marked by the way) on my new brushless controller were Ahm..... Backwards [:@]
Felt real Dumb heh. but is working magicly now
