Tricopter ESC programming problem


Junior Member
Hi all
I am in the process of setting up a Tri-copter but have met with a small problem in programming the ESC's, I am using Turnigy AE-30 3amp BEC controllers coupled to 2830/14 motors, when I connected a receiver to the ESC and 3S lipo the ESC emitted a series of beeps and the motors spooled up without any problems, so I then proceeded to program each individual ESC and connected the RX lead to the top right of a Turnigy Programing Card as explained in the accompanying instruction sheet and then connected the lipo to the ESC but the card fails to light up, at 1st I thought the card might be faulty so bought another as a spare but that is exactly the same - what am I doing wrong ?
