Mike...I replied to your email.
All...first thing to do is plug in the battery pack and pull the trigger...see if you get a green LED meaning forward throttle. If not, reverse the throttle on your radio. Next go into endpoint adjustments and max them out...on the DX2 this is 125% throttle/125% brake. If your transmitter has a slide switch to limit the brake (as there is on the DX2...the "A" slider) increase this to it's max as well (125% on the DX2) or it will limit the brake travel. You should then be able to calibrate and program normally. If the wheels spin the wrong direction, swap any two motor wires and the motor will spin the opposite direction. Since the only frictional parts on BL motors are the bearings (which don't care which way they're spinning), there are no side effects of doing this. You can run it in one direction for a year, then swap the wires and run it in the other direction for a year.
If any of you ever have any problems calibrating your ESC to your transmitter, please give me a call at the # below. I'm more than happy to help. Obviously, have all your gear in front of you.
