    Sorry forgot to add. Esc should work on any channel that the esc is plugged into on your receiver.

    I purchased an mtronics 25 amp esc recently. Wired it and seemed to work. I then started to install to the model, wiring etc and fastening in then started the set up instructions. When switched on the blue and yellow led light alternately but no red light whatever I do. Tried pressing the button and switching on with button pressed but not powering the motor and only get blue and yellow lighting alternatively. Given up, very disappointed as I don't think these units can be repaired.

    As far as I can understand it, throttle control is always defaulted to Ch 3 no matter what stick the equipment manufacturer assigned as throttle control.
    Usually each stick is assigned a particular control function.

    According to the video link I sent, it is very clear that once the β€œprogramming” or initial setup is performed, the ESC should work. Your description of your problem indicates that programming either failed or was improperly done. I would make another attempt with the ESC plugged into ch 3 which is the β€œnormal” throttle channel. On your transmitter unit, according to the user manual, the throttle control is on the right hand stick. I would try the programming procedure one more time being absolutely certain that you do not leave out a step. If it still does not work, you may want to have conversation with your supplier of that item about replacement.

    β€œwhat difference does receiver mode PWM or S-bus and PPm ?β€œ
    Unfortunately, I do not know the answer to that. I bet that your user manual would explain it.

    Good luck - hope you get this resolved.

    Hi,
    To try and explain this easily it depends on what you want on what switch or stick on your transmitter.

    What i do is, if i want the left up/down stick to operate a throttle i would plug in a servo it to the receiver and wiggle the left stick and if the servo dose not work i would then move the servo to another position on the receiver un till it worked.
    Then do the same thing again for a different function until i have everything operating as i want it to on the transmitter.
    I hope i am not trying to teach you to suck eggs.
    Obversely it can get more complicated depending on how you set up your transmitter.

    If it looks right it probably is.

    Hi,
    How have you connected your throttle and rudder to your receiver ?
    Maybe you can post some photos of your setup.
