Default World Moedels 63" Spitfire

Hi guys, I have a 63" almost 8lb spitfire ready to go but cannot get the motor to run. This is the setup 9s1p kokams 3 packs of 3200mah 11.1 volt, Phoenix 85hv esc and an Axi 4130/20 up front with a 15*8 3 blade prop.When I go to start the motor all I can get is a short really rough run of about 5 seconds and very slow revs. When I arm the controller I get the long beep followed by a series of short beeps, about 7 then the long beep again.I have tried all sorts of combinations of programming the esc but to no avail.
Hope somebody can help.

Give Pheonix this problem as long as you are sure your battery voltage stays up during the short motor run.

I have rung Castle Creations and they are going to replace the controller at no cost to me. There have been problems with this model and they are happy to send me a newer model. More power to them I reckon.

Either an improperly programmed controller or a defective one. I'd suggest you contact C/C.

I have this fairly good size Spitfire myself. I was wondering. Are those superglue hinges good enough for this. Also, did this one run with the 9 cells in series, that would be something like 32 Volts? Could 11 volts haul it?

I'm putting this one together also, I use the ca hinges, they will be fine. I'm powering with turnegy 50-55 400kv, on 6s 4000 zippy packs. More than enough power, with 14x7 3 blade master airscrew prop. I use the 80 amp turnegy esc. With a bit of work, this should be a decent looking plane, I'll be modeling it after a MkXVI spitfire. I've already added the wing fillets, next chore is to mod the flaps, spitfires just have to be split flaps! Will add cockpit work, a decent looking pilot, and it's gotta have GUNS! Once I'm done, it should be a decent sport scale plane. I'll try to post some pics when I'm finnished.

I have had this one for a few years.

But mine runs on wet fuel.

My birddog in the photos just happens to be named Spitfire too.
