Default Mamba Max Problem?

I have the mamba max and when I program it the steering only works. No throttle. Fresh batteries in my remote. I've also tried different remotes and reprograming the esc multiple times. The motor beeps and does everything the manual says but no throttle. Is the motor bad?

Did you setup your Futaba radio with the throttle setup in reverse? The Mamba setup to a Futaba for the throttle reversing switch to be reversed in order to set it up properly on the throttle.

To add to this if you have an Airtronics, or JR, or something other than a futaba you have to make sure the throttle servo is set to normal. If it is set to reverse all of the programming will work properly but you will get no throttle control.

Turn your mamba off and make sure you have the throttle servo setting correct. Then reprogram the mamba.
