    Esc question, help please.

    Hi, I just used the castle link software. I plugged everything back in. I started it up. The fan spins, no lipo cell count beeps.. radio and receiver are good. I have steering, no throttle.

    Everything seems like it is plugged in correctly.

    Any ideas?

    any time you make any adjustment to the ESC you need to reprogram throttle, brake, & neutral end points.
    that should get you going idb, even if you change from the 50/50 & 70/30 you need to reprogram..

    last thing make sure you pluged the ESC wire in with the darkest wire out on the Rx........
    Would you go flip my truck back over??

    87 can you explain the darkest wire out thing... I took it as a negative so I aligned it with the servo plugs.

    I believe I have to recalibrate because of the new radio transmitter. I have followed the castle manual, but it doesn't work. Just a lot of beeps.

    Speed Control Programming Instructions
    The Castle Creations Mamba Max speed control should not need
    reprogramming with normal use. However, if you install a different
    radio system in your model, or change the transmitter’s throttle-neutral
    setting from 50/50 to 70/30, you will need to reprogram the speed
    control. Follow these instructions to reprogram the speed control:
    1. Install the batteries of your choice in the battery compartments and
    plug the batteries into the speed control.
    2. Switch on your transmitter.
    3. Hold full throttle while you switch on the Mamba Monster controller.
    After a few seconds, you will hear multiple tones and the
    RED LED will light.
    4. Hold full brake. After a few seconds, you will hear multiple tones
    and the YELLOW LED will light.
    5. Release the trigger to the neutral position. After a few seconds,
    you will hear multiple tones and ALL THE LEDs will light.
