    Racerstar 30a esc freak out with Kiss FC

    I have recently finished a quad build, but once I arm the quad and apply throttle the motors don't spin until i give full throttle and the escs begin to beep. There is no control over the motors and as far as I can tell everything is wired correctly. I have manually calibrated the esc using the...

    Motor Stutter

    I'm running an emax rs2205 2600kv motor with a 40a ESC on a 3S lipo and 5x4 props, and I'm getting issues with the motor stuttering on low throttle. I tried a 12a and an 18a ESC and had the same issue. Is my battery too low voltage or is my ESC too low amperage for the rs2205?

    HiTec Propel Motors

    I've noticed a new banner ad lately. HiTec Propel motors that have an integrated ESC. I don't go through ESC's and therefore wonder why not get some motors with the ESC built in. Has anyone any experience with these specific motors? Has anyone any experience with other motors with the ESC's...

    Mini flying wing

    Hi all, I was considering building an ultra micro flying wing and had a few questions. First off, how do you get an ESC that is not built into the receiver and does not cost 60$ like the one from HH. Second question, I saw that all the UMX motor use gearboxes, is this necessary? does it effect...

    Ahhhh ESC/motors go crazy. What is going on?

    I just got the Eachine Wizard x220. It has the Spracing F3 Flight controller, now. That said. I got everything set up and ready to go. I turn it on and go to hover, then it insta-flips and goes crazy (never left the ground, though). I had to use the failsafe to get it to stop. So, I checked...
