Iíll have to look into the reset. Havenít been suggested that. Servo in 1, esc in 2. I was a little suprised to not see a positive/negative marking on any of the receivers.

For Futaba receivers, the correct order for the servo/esc wires is always white/red/black. White is always to the "inside", and black always to the "outside". White is your signal wire, red is power (+) and black is power (-). Depending on the brand of servo or esc, you might have a yellow or orange wire instead of white, but it's the same thing. You may also need to reorder the wires in the actual plastic connector if they are not white/red/black.

Thanks. They were plugged in correctly. Considering how many times Iíve switched receivers itís more the possible that it could have happened. I did find that a piece of dust was stuck in on esc plug port. It could have been the problem. Could have happened recently. So one receiver is now working. Iíll have to try again with the others.
