    Slash help cant get it to go

    Hi All:

    I got a Slash for Christmas and put about 3 batteries through it and no it wont work. I push the button on the esc and it just turns red. It will not turn green. I have fully charged batteries and I set the trim to neutral and still nothing.

    Anybody have an idea on what I can try?

    thanks

    reset the esc. the manual tells you how to do it.

    Go back to the manual and basically start all over again with the programming. That is what I did. Fixed my problem.

    so what fixed it.. was it resetting it? did you have your controller to 70/30 when the esc was on 50/50, or did you do the "hold the trigger 1/2 way untill the ESC blinks green" trick?
