Motor not stopping
by: Pete

That happened to me when I firs started flying. Check the throttle setting on your radio, use the throttle trim or try re=programming your esc. One of those should work. Good luck.

First: Check your throttle trim setting.

Second: Make sure your electronic speed control(ESC)
is calibrated to the throttle control on your transmitter.

How do I calibrate my throttle control on my transmitter. I have the throttle trim set at 50 and if I lower it the motor goes faster.

Throttle problems

I am probably stating the obvious but
have you tried reversing the throttle on your radio. If it accelerates in the wrong direction surely it must be this?
