Default Help please!!

I've been building a rigger the last 3 months and have burned 2 motors and 3 speed controls. was trying to use car parts but didn't work so I finally baught the brushless system. I got a 3900kv motor, 5000 mah 4s1P lipo battery and a speed control I can't get setup right. It's a tower pro 50 amp besc. everytime I set it up it just starts going when the transmitter is in the nuertal position(using a 2 channel pistol grip from airtronics). I have to hold it at full brake to get to stop and it just doesn't seem like its spinning as fast as it should when at full throttle. Can anyone help me???

Read the manual of the speed-control [:@]

How to adjust it to your transmitter/reciever MUST be in it .

Or call Tower to talk you through it.

Try reversing the throttle on your TX settings before then powering up the RX.

First a 3900 Kv motor on 4S is going to be around 57,000 rpm WAY TOO MUCH!!

2S power, 7.4 volts is more appropriate for the Kv motor.

No idea about your ESC, it is not a made for boats so that is going to be an issue as well.

The manual is very short. about the size of an index card and it doesn't say if it's for cars planes boats anything. The setup is all done with beeps and as much as i can find there isn't a programer for it. Why is 57000 rpm to much? This is the first i've done with brushless and lipos and Im doing like i do my atv's the more power the better. I'll try reversing the throttle.
