    Electronics are not a skill that I can say that I have developed. With that, I believe I have put myself in a real pickle for my build. I am building a 1/144 fast gun Lutzow.

    I got it all wired up and tried to test it out this evening and ran into some issues. First, the ESC only goes forward, it doesnt register reverse. When I try to set the points I get "error beeps" I think its because the ESC are rated to 6v and the battery is 3S ll.1V. Also, this my first time every using a brushless setup. In my testing this evening, I did get the motors turning the right direction which was cool among the chaos.

    Anyway, I would like some help solving my problem the most inexpensive way possible. I added all the links to the electronics parts that I am currently using. I believe most of them are rated to 12v except the ESC. If that is the case, I would just need two new ESCs rated to 11.1v. Could you recommend an 11.1v ESC?

    The voltage is fine, I've used those escs on 3S with no problems. If you used too much voltage, you would've fried the ESC. Here's an electronic version of the manual;

    It explains how to set the endpoints and how to program the esc's running mode for fwd/rev and set rev to 100% without using a programming card. I've programmed these before and know how it goes, let me know if you need help with it.

    Thanks for the reassurance. It got the drive motors working properly. It pays to move on to step 3 after completing step 2. lol Thank you for the help.
