Waited better then 3 minutes for video to play got tired of waiting. Did the radio and plane come together, is the receiver and radio compatible, is the radio bound to the receiver, do any of the channels work ie rudder elevator etc?

After which beeps?
The battery and the receiver. Is your ESC connected to the bat. port? You don't need to calibrate the ESC. It should be at zero settings when you hook up. Yeah, I had that problem. How much mAhours of battery to use? Now it's just waiting again. The battery.

Trying to rescue a brand-new-out-of-the-wrapper ESC & motor. I've now gone thru & resoldered the connectors between ESC and motor. Then recalibrated the ESC three times. It's better than it was, but still starts pulsing or just quits about about 3/4 throttle. Bad motor?? Any suggestions? Thanks in any case.

It sounds like either your ESC is too small (amperage) or the prop is too big

That is always frustrating. Motor Stuttering typically means a bad solder joint, or a loose connection. If the video is what you have, it is the Suppo Style Generic Brand Motor. Didn't catch enough of the ESC. was it a vid of the issue you have (the set of beeps)?

Does the ESC beep once after turning off? if yes then the battery needs more charge.
