Reluctant Motor

For anyone bored enough to answer:Possibly a very simple issue. And I'm yet to try a different PDB, though I have one.Finally got my Futaba  talking to my basic jdrones quad, 850kv motors but with 30A jdrones ESCs. Tested all motor/ESC combos with servo tester and all work. All work in ESC cal routine with ESC plug in channel 3 of the receiver. Cool enough. But then I set it all up and the front motor wot go. The others run and seem to be changing speed appropriately in hand-testing. But the front motor just sits in the slow, regular beep mode of the ESC. Looked over PDB circuit board and it appears to be all in order. Switched ESC, too. Running AC2 38 from mission planner.

    Nick, have you tried to swap any esc? or even outputs? You can easily swap few outputs by placing ESC cables to different connectors on PowerPDB. This way you can check if problem moves along the connection.
