    12. What do the flashing LEDs mean?
    The LEDs can have different meanings depending on what you are doing.

    If you are not calibrating and have no throttle input:
    Flashing Red and Yellow = over temp
    Flashing Green and Yellow = low voltage cut-off(battery)
    Flashing Green OR Red = Speed control has not been calibrated and is not armed; or throttle sub-trim is not at 0.
    Solid Green OR Red = should not happen when at neutral, indicates full throttle/reverse
    Flashing Yellow = possible problem with controller
    Solid Yellow = indicates neutral and armed
    Flashing all colors = speed control is not receiving a valid signal from the receiver, usually indicates the receiver wire is plugged in backwards into the receiver; possible problem with controller or with throttle channel on receiver.

    If you are applying throttle or reverse when NOT calibrating:
    Flashing Red and Yellow = over temp
    Flashing Green and Yellow = low voltage cut-off(battery)
    Flashing Green OR Red = indicates partial throttle (green) or reverse (red)
    Solid Green OR Red = indicates full throttle (green) or reverse (red)
    Flashing Yellow = possible problem with control
    Solid Yellow = should never happen
    Flashing all colors = speed control is not receiving a valid signal from the receiver, usually indicates the receiver wire is plugged in backwards into the receiver; possible problem with controller or with throttle channel on receiver.

    If you are applying throttle or reverse WHEN calibrating:
    Flashing Red and Yellow = should not happen when calibrating
    Flashing Green and Yellow = should not happen when calibrating
    Flashing Green OR Red while beeping = indicates speed control is looking for full throttle (green) or full throttle (red). If it continues for more than ~ 8 seconds, indicates speed control is seeing partial throttle (green) or reverse (red), increase endpoints on transmitter so speed control sees full throttle/reverse.
    Solid Green OR Red = indicates full throttle (green) or reverse (red) has been read
    Flashing Yellow = speed control is not seeing a valid neutral signal, check your transmitters throttle sub-trim is at zero, exponential is set to 0 or linear, and mixing is disabled.
    Solid Yellow = indicates neutral has calibrated and is armed
    Flashing all colors = speed control is not receiving a valid signal from the receiver. Usually indicates the receiver wire is plugged in backwards into the receiver; also happens when speed control has accepted a calibration setting (throttle, reverse or neutral) and flashes/chimes 4 times before moving to next calibration point; or problem with throttle channel on receiver.

    Got it figured out. Had the motor test box checked in the castle link program. So i guess the esc was in motor test mode or somthing. I Downloaded the latest firmware and recalibrated now only green light in forward
