I am running the castle creations sidewinder3. If I remember correctly the sct combo is only 2s capable. I may be wrong

Sct combo esc is the same as the sidewinder 3 except the sct combo includes a fan on the esc

What's up guys! Yeah Southernfury your best bet is to get a program card and plug it in to the computer it's usb ready and go on line to castle creations I know it's a process but you can find out if the esc is in default and yes it is 3s did you make sure the battery was charged?

Thank you for the info, I found out that it is actually my tx and rx that are causing all my problems, I was able to talk to castles tech line and they walked me through several things and it all came back to the rx was not talking to the esc, now i'm fighting with arrma on getting them to fix them

Kool! That's a great system but you need capacitor if you put extra fan's or lights on your Rc!

Yeah that's good because it will drain the power from everything,no complaints from sw-3 I have it on a 1/10 onroad car for about year and a half.

I'm actually using the little nimh battery that came with my 1/18 latrax Teton to power my lights, I put the Arrma battery in the 1/18, it motivates it pretty good lol

What until you jump to lipo battery's you ain't going to look back! that's how I started,look for heli 2s battery's they much smaller and lighter and fit anywhere you can strap them to the body,on my Fury I have it over the servo case.
