So I am running a Jive 120 with a Quamtum 4530 500 motor in mode 4. For my targeted head speed of 1950 in ST 1 my throttle curve is a flat 48 percent and ST 2 for 2100, I'm at a flat 55 percent. Heli is a goblin 700 with a 21 tooth. Everything is new.
My problem came after about 15 or so successful flights. I set the heli on the pad and fired it up. It initialized just fine. I raised the collective and it started, but the motor would only turn about have speed. The more I raised the throttle the more the motor struggled. Finally it would shut down and the esc would flash 8 times. Unplug the battery and plug it back in and it would initialize just fine, but do the same thing.
So I reprogram the esc in mode one, then mode four and it seems to work fine on the bench. Any suggestions on what happened? I'm kinda nervous to put it in the air, but I can always auto in if it shuts down.
