Ok, so I tried using the Throttle Hold function as so many friends suggested at start up. Start up with stick just under middle position
and -10 +10 curves. My tail belt was shredded in less than 5 minutes! What am I doing wrong?? Help pls

Are you in idle up or norm and what throttle curves.

Sounds to me like you do not have the soft start feature enabled on your ESC, assuming it has one. What ESC?

If you dont have a soft start feature you need to use a linear curve starting at 0%... 0-in-50-in100 . It does not have to be that exactly but you need a gradual increase of throttle from the start then switch to a stunt throttle curve after you are spooled up.

If the start up is still to hard after doing the above, I have seen some spin the head up manually so the head already has momentum when throttle is applied. Take caution though.

The best solution is soft start.

Agreed, you NEED to have soft-start enabled in order to flip off TH with throttle at mid stick.

Yeah, that is what I was thinking . So if mid stick zero pitch is
at 80% throttle , can I still spool up without taking out the
belt gears ?

I had normal mode set like an idle up 1 so I could set the bird
down a little more gentle.

Without soft start... No I would not try disabling TH at midstick of 80% throttle.

Set your norm mode PITCH curve to 40-inh-50-inh-100 and THROTTLE curve to 0-INH-70-INH-100 (mid value and up can vary) Use this norm pitch and throttle curve to spool up. Switch to stunt mode afterwards.
