    new guy

    Just got a new/used spartan. Doing some garage boating. Water is still a little frozen here. I hooked up batteries and the esc green light blinked and played a little music. Then a blinking green light with a tone about every second. I had stearing but no throttle, forward or reverse. I messed with the multi func knob and got it to quit. I have forwart throttle but no reverse. I really don't know what I did. Any suggestions? Please excuse my RC language. Just getting started.
    Thanks

    Maybe your set-up is on the sports mode. Does it include with a manual when you purchase it?

    Welcome to family "Spartan". Once your water is not so frozen, have fun and just "enjoy your ride".

    Thanks orca. I have purchased some lipos, and a charger. I will use the NiMH batteries to get use to the boat. We have a 20 ft crownline and just like to go out to the middle of a lake and relax. The Spartan will fit in the ski locker. Should be fun.
