Quote from: PDR on October 20, 2019, 10:45:49 amSo I fetched the Tx, reconnected everything and powered up - and got the constant beeping again. This had me scratching my head, because the setup worked fine on the servo tester but refused to work from the Rx! I stared at the Tx and the penny dropped. The last time I flew it I had knocked the throttle trim up a few clicks so that the prop didn't stop when the throttle was closed on the downside of manoeuvres and while taxiing back in. This trim was far enough forward to stop the ESC arming on switch-on. I have a side-button set as a kill switch, so I was using that to shut off the throttle and to allow the ESC to arm, but I'd forgotten all about it. So there was actually nothing wrong with anything but the prat holding the Tx - if I'd set the kill switch before connecting the battery it would have worked, and I would have both had a decent day of flying AND not wasted 90 mins messing about testing stuff!DUH!!PDR
