Default Need Some HELP plz!

So i just got a new radio( Blazer sport) and motor (trinity cobalt 10x2). When i hooked up everything the motor turned on i cheaked the trim and it was pefect. When i tried to pull on the trigger it stoped the motor instead of making it go. Then i switched the throtle switch to reverse and the motor worked perfectly. How do i make it so the motor will run with the trotle switch on fwd. I checked the wires too. My esc is a quantum competiton.

Either you have the endbell with the timing marks on the wrong side of the motor, or you soldered the wires to the opposite polarity.

yeah, I would have to say the wires are on wrong. Usually, it is hard to tell the positive side of the motor can from the negative. The polarity marks are sometimes tiny. Then again, if you say you checked them....then I have no idea.

Reset all your radio trims to neutral and throttle channel must be in reverse and then reprogram you speedo again.
