    in desperate need of help with ET-3s

    So I finally got my ET-3s buttoned up on my slash 4x4 and when I plug the battery into it all the led lights on it light up and its making a constant beeping sound that I cannot for the life of me figure out how to make go away. I have the TQi tx and rx and the steering works just fine but the throttle will not work at all. Anybody know how to program this confusing little thing? Would rather get it worked out here than sit on the phone forever with customer support. Thanks guys

    the calibration won't work because it automatically stats bleeping constantly as soon as I plug the battery in

    Ok so I had to turn the live link off (duh) that was my fault but now when I give it throttle nothing happens, however when I use the steering wheel is turns the wheels and give the car throttle? Can anybody explain this? Thanks guys

    You have 2 channel 1 ports on the reciever and it sounds like you have the esc and servo plugged into them

    Move the esc to channel 2.

    LOL I've done this about three times now while in a hurry at the track, at least I now know what it is as soon as I turn it on.

    Goodness dont feel silly at all, you'll find just about everyone has done the steering and throttle on one channel trick.
