HI,

THOUGHT THIS MIGHT BE  A GOOD PLACE TO POST DETAILS OF THE START UP RPOCEDURE FOR ELECTRIC SET UP'S:

Procedure for using Brushless  Electric  Power Systems for RC Models
1)   Turn on the transmitter first 
2)   Raise Throttle to maximum Position
3)   Connect Battery to ESC
4)   You should get a sound signal  confirming setting of Max throttle position
5)   After hearing a long beep confirming  the max position of throttle  reduce throttle to Zero
6)   You should hear a sound signal  confirming the minimum throttle position  followed by a long beep or a set of beeps  confirming the minimum throttle position .
7)   Thus the throttle range has been set up.
8 )   While disconnecting the  battery kindly note the Battery has to be disconnected from the ESC  before the transmitter is switched off.

IMPORTANT NOTE

•   If the transmitter is turned off before the battery is disconnected  there is a very high possibility of damaging the servos and other radio systems.
•   Majority of the ESC’s currently available in the market today use this procedure for powering on and off .
•   Lithium Polymer batteries require the use of special LIPO charger and at no time should they be charged with regular available chargers.
•   IT IS ADVISABLE TO USE THE ABOVE POWERING ON AND OFF PROCEDURE EVRYTIME THOUGH IT IS NOT ESSENTIAL.

One important thing about setting up electric planes on most Futaba radios is that you have to reverse the throttle channel (typically channel 3) !
