No throttle output!

#1
Building a simple storch with a power pack c. Got all servos working properly, but still have no throttle output. Motor turns as freely as before install. DXe transmitter with AR620 reciever. Help?

Yeah, I've got full aileron, elevator, and rudder functionality. It beeps and flexes solenoids during initialisation, but no throttle response. Everything plugged in as just stated.

Is throttle plugged into the correct receiver port and the right way around? Also check there is no exposed metal on the bullet connectors between motor and ESC if you are using them. Any short there will kill the ESC.
Have you calibrated the ESC?

For some reason I get throttle output at 2 stages when flight mode on the tx is switched to 0 or 1 unrelated to throttle position. Also, esc calibration was not functional.

What do you mean by 2 stages? like, throttle works at 2 speeds when the flight mode switch is flipped?

You need to get into the app and see what your switches are set to. It sounds like the throttle is on the flight mode channel, you want it plugged into channel 1 not channel 5 and the switch set to channel 5 not channel 1!

Whilst you are waiting can we get a picture of the receiver with all the plugs in and the receiver and esc with the plugs in?

Apparently the last time I plugged in the esc I wasn't paying attention. It was plugged into #5 instead of #1. Plugged back into #1 and I now have proper throttle control. Still looking forward to checking out the setup with the app.

See, simple solutions are the best solutions. I have made all those silly errors myself.
Glad it’s all fixed! You will want to talk to the RX to set up your dual rates and expo before you fly anyway, so that cable won’t be wasted.

Yes, it allows you to reverse servos. You can do it mechanically by changing the wiring or put a reverser in line to the rudder.
