While setting up a new model I mistakenly left the throttle sub trim at 45% and when I turned on the model, the speed control has gone into program mode and I do not know how to reset it any help greatly appericiated. The sound is as usaual one and then three beeps and then it just beeps rapidly. It is the GWS 15 amp lipo.
Green side is definitely not up

My GWS 15A does the exact same thing. It does the usual 3 beeps when it's armed. And then just continues to beep. I thought I had done something to it or had some faulty equipment. But something the same as you. Had the throttle stick up a bit when I plugged the battery in and put it into programming mode. To get it out all I did was put the throttle stick up all the way again, plugged the battery back in waited for it to start beeping again. Then put the throttle stick back and unplugged the battery. Once I plugged the battery back in it did the normal 3 beeps to let you know the motor is armed and problem fixed.

Hope that works for you. I was confused to as to why it did that till I figured that out.

Good news is that the programming card is inexpensive, the bad news is they are out of stock.
