Default Help With GWS Pico Tiger Moth Build

I just am putting the final touches to the GW S Pico Tiger Moth from Heads Up RC...tested all components last night and every thing worked. Binded to my dX6i...servos ( elev, rudder) and throttle worked. Put all components in plane this morning...and now the moTor will not work. Traded out the ESC with another I have, changed batteries, changed wires to motor...motor just won't turn. What could be the problem? Alan

Here are the specs

2712-17 outrunner brushless motor
10amp ESC
9g TP SG 90 sub micro servos
7.4 850 mah bat

Do you need to arm the ESC? Some need to have throttle full off - beep - throttle full on - beep - throttle full off - more beeps

Another possibility is that you have the the esc in the wrong slot on your receiver or you have it in backwards

Also, make sure you didn't leave the bind plug in the receiver

And take care on your CG - those Moths all tend to build tail heavy

Thanks Wolf...tried all that.still nothing. Swapped out the receiver (OrangeRx) to another plane and everything functions. Bad motor?
