    Sure it is the motor beeping? More likely to be the ESC (not clued up on this Brushless tech yet so could very well be wrong :P). The ESC manual suggests that there is no throttle signal being received (1 beep followed by a pause).

    you sir, are a genius. didn't know there was a manual, just found it. Lemme have a look as its not that type of beeping, its a really quick one

    its something to do with the throttle not being in the lowest position, will try to find the correct channel and mix. Problem solving people!

    From the manual, looks to be that you need to reset the throttle position and set the pull rod to the lowest position.

    Is 60a the recommendation for those motor's? I've found Afro ESC's are pretty bomb proof but they only go up to 30a but with the rounds only being 2 minute's, heat might not be to much of an issue.
