    trouble after adding telemetry

    I added a 6507 transmitter and 6518 reciever to my 1/16 revo vxl last week, and have about 6hrs of run time with that setup. Today I added a speed sensor and temp sensor. Now the esc just blinks green. I have tried removing the ipod, deleting the app. I tried resetting the transmitter. I've tried disconnecting the sensors, and still blinking green. The manual for the vxl-3m says that that means that the throttle trim is set wrong, so I disabled the multi-function button and still a blinking green.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks in advance

    Recalibrate the ESC.
    Disabling the throttle trim is not going to reset it back to 0.
    Whatever it is I just said... I could be wrong.

    How long should this take? Holding at full throttle for 5min and still the light hasn't blinked red twice yet

    Just a few seconds.

    Try unplugging everything but the ESC.

    Next step to try is to reset the controller back to factory settings... and then try to calibrate the ESC.

    If it still doesn't work post up the steps you are performing... sometimes it is a missed step.

    I tried the reciever and transmitter on a nitro sport and it worked perfectly aside from the multi-function switch being disabled.
    I removed the ipod, put new batteries in the transmitter, a freshly charged venom 1600 battery, held down both red buttons on the transmitter, turnd the transmitter on and released the buttons, then pressed the set button. Then I held the ez-set button on the esc until the light turned redn then I released itn when the light blinked red once, I applied full throttle on the transmitter. Waited for 60sec but the light on the esc never flashed red twice. Did I miss anything?

    I wonder if the ESC quit... can you call Traxxas?

    So I must have been sleep deprived last night and I had the esc plugged into ch3 instead of ch2. Thanx for your time Jimmy
