Hi Martyn, is a motor connected and if so, is the tome from the Motor or ESC?

Does throttle work smoothly and as you would expect?

Test with Prop off motor though!

I would suspect the timing on the ESC is not set correctly....

I Have just pluged a stand alone battery ( good call Oily) but it is still happening but it seems to be coming from the reciver and mainly when the ruder is plug in I trought it was binding but it seems free enough looking round the web it seems to happen with parkzone models .

Martyn do you get the normal bleeps when connecting up the lipo and then it reverts to the continous tone? I ask this because my PZ Me 109E does this and I get a continousalmost 'whistle like sound but all works fine.

Well the Me 109G (not E!) works fine so I don't know what it is but I just live with it! Actually it's a bit like a real plane on start up with the gyros running!

I had a similar problem with my arowind esc, all I did to resolve was a re-bind and all was well. I would think if its making tones rather than a "whistle" something must be up with it.
