couldnt figure out how to plug it in as the manual is terrible. basically the usb plug has black red and orange, which should be BROWN red and orange. plugged it in thru the black and red and orange on receiver wire and got nothing, which now makes sense. you have to remove the throttle cable from the rx and plug it in thru that way, on the rx end.

Also don't forget to unplug/unsolder a battery if it is connected to the ESC before you attach it to the USB.

If you are using the programming card you want to have the battery hooked up.
