Parkzone extra troubles

       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
Hey guys,

I'm dusting off a couple planes that haven't flown in a while. My PZ Extra 300 won't develop full power...not sure why. Checked that the prop is secure on the shaft. I decided that the trouble might be in the ESC so I switched it out and out in a Castle 35A. Now I can't get the motor to spool up at all...all other functions are working fine. Any thoughts?

Yep, you have a cold solder joint on one of the motor leads.

Re: Parkzone extra troubles

Radio throttle setting changed?

If you can't be kind, at least have the decency to be vague.
