Everyone knows that and it does not pertain to his issue so dont post it.

Its possible that you have a bad sensor board in your motor. They do go bad from time to time and have seen some from the factory that were bad as well. If your using a Tekin speedo you can use the sensor check feature to see if they are all picking up or not. I cant remember which Mode it is but Randy Pike may be able to let you know on here.

Other than that Sensor cables are common issues if they have some age on them due to the wires being so small.

+1 - sensor board might be faulty. I've purchased a D3.5 that didn't run properly out of the box. Once I replaced the sensor board, the motor runs as intended.

With a Tekin, just turn the power on, and turn the pinion by hand. Look for three LEDs to cycle as you turn the pinion. You'll have to look closely, because they are very dim while doing this.

Yep the three on the far right like this:



Sensor Checker - The RS/RX8 have a built in sensor checker. This can come in handy for diagnosing sensor harness or motor problems on the go.

Watch LEDs 5, 6 and 7 while slowly rotating your motor shaft with the ESC on. This animation has been enhanced for visablilty, however on the ESC the LEDs show up much more dimly lit. You should see them rotate through as they are above to see that each sensor is working properly.
