    OK, now I see it. I've gotten used to today's internet way of composing a sentence.

      OV likely has the right point about the throttle calibration. Lower throttle trim all the way to the bottom. With TX turned on, put throttle stick all the way to the top. Now, plug in the battery to the ESC and as soon as you finish hearing the first set of beeps, lower the throttle to the bottom. Additionally, I can't tell from your picture if the plugs into the RX are of the correct polarity. Check that, too.
      Also notice that the throttle lead wires have some taped parts. Has that line been spliced a few times? If so, maybe check that the splices haven't come apart under the tape.

        Hey thanks everyone for the feed back big help. BUT
        even when I tried calibrating the throttle it did nothing, in fact these not even any beeping when I plug in my battery. The esc is working (I think) cause I can use a servo. I checked the wires none are sliced.

        I did find out something really odd thought. If I plug in my esc to port 6 it beeps I couple time like normal. Then starts beeping again but this time the esc sounds like its dying. And once I press and release the bind button throttle turns on, and turns of when I press the bind button. Sounds great exept theres not throttle control its etheir full power or no power

                I put my 2 aileron servos on Ch.2 (AIL) and Ch.6 (AUX)
                Then had to enable {WINGTAILMIX] on my TX and turn on [DUALAILE]

                Hope that helps :)

                  That is always an option, especially if you want to be able to do individual adjustments to each AIL or if you want to do "flaperons" or "spoilerons". I was addressing the poster's questions about what to do with one AIL port and two aileron leads. I prefer to use the "KISS" principle whenever possible so as to not inject another variable that could confuse the issue being discussed at the time.

                    Im getting bad reports on these. Just ordered 2 of them and my flying buddies ate warning me not to use them. Elevator issues ? Can anybody confirm ?

                      Been using them from day one with no issues.

                        Any idea about my experience :
                        I have this ar620 rx new from store since a week. I binded with a skyfly nirvana with multi irange irx4 succesfully. It binds at DSMx and DSM2 (what protocol is savest to use?) . Nirvana's ch 1&2 are at the receiver port 4&5. I just need two ports for a flying wing (ncfm moth), so far so good. The thing is, when 2 servo's are connected i have unexpected movements on one of outputs, especialy with fast stick movements. The connected servo runs to its end and returns to old position. i've changed the servo, same problem. The other channel has no issue and is responding normal on stick movement. When i disconnect the normal working channel and the bad channel is the only one connected, the problem is over.. The receiver runs on 5xNiMh, servo's are futaba fs800 mg . Any light about this?

                        Pj,

                          Thanks I went ahead and gave them a try. A4 with HE a3L stab and 90mm F/A-18. Both work great. Was not so lucky with the Admiral 6 chan w/ stab.

                            Yeah, I had issues with that Admiral too with signal losses.

                            I've got a couple of the AR620's. They work fine, never an actual hold for me, but I do get fairly high frame losses in my F-22 at times (>40) which I have setup as a warning on telemetry. Unfortunately, there's no way to add a satellite and changing the position of the receiver hasn't made a difference.

                            But honestly, without the telemetry, I would never know the reception is spotty.

                              Hi guys,

                              I fly the original Timber and fly it like it's a glider in thermals all the time and it has telemetry and it sends down frame losses to the radio with one time 1,010 losses one time, losses are not the problem in most cases it's the holds and I have never had a hold ever show up.
                              I have the FMS Fox 3000mm and added a AR1000 to it so that I could get battery voltage and I have seen frame losses with that also. I went to Menlow GA two months ago and put it almost out of site and it still had no holds. So fades are Ok and nothing to worry about is what I'm saying.

                              R.
