    Help ASAP

    Something is wrong with my xl5 I'm using it in a custom boat and I need help ASAP. It is in neutral throttle protection mode and I can't get it out.

    Throttle Neutral Protection
    Your model’s XL-5 speed control also features Throttle Neutral
    Protection. If the transmitter’s throttle trim setting is changed while
    the speed control is switched off, Throttle Neutral Protection prevents
    the speed control from activating the motor until the throttle trim is
    corrected. Throttle Neutral Protection also prevents the model from
    suddenly accelerating if the speed control is switched on while the
    transmitter’s trigger is being held. When the trigger is returned to
    neutral, the XL-5 will operate properly.


    So in a nutshell play with your trim tabs on the controller until it is returned to neutral.
    My wife hates it but I love It.

    Is the servo work? Plug it in the servo spot just to see if it goes away. It could just be the receiver.

    I'm not using any servo. It worked fine a minute before testing it again.

    Make sure the esc is plugged in channel 2 not 1 and if that doesn't work the plug a servo into channel 1
