The 180 cfx is using a castle talon 15 with internal gov. So yes when it gets a throttle signal it is going to spool up to the first programmed head speed. Have you verified that the end points are set correctly per the manual for the throttle channel? It may sound faster then it actually is spinning in those smaller models, I believe the preprogramed rpms are: 4200, 4600 and 5000.

Pre-programmed head speed? Wow...that is just a really bad idea. Is there a way to turn that off?

Remember, that the downloaded programs, are what Castle or Horizon deem as a start for the Talon. It sounds like you have the Talon set up in Gov - set rpm mode and using flat line throttle curves to control the headspeed. You can always go back in and change the Talon programming to whatever you are comfortable with.

Yes you can turn that off. You will need o download the castle software from their web site. In addition you will need a castle usb program adapter I think I have a coupon for a free one if you need it. Let me check. And you will need to purchase a 7 dollar adapter to connect to jst connector on the talon. If you go to the other forum there is a communal one that is being passed around for free to update and make changes.

If you have any other questions feel free to pm me and I can give you my cell number.

Yes - read about the governor. It also has a soft start. I usually just use throttle hold and flick it on when I'm ready to go. It will start spinning slowly and go faster till it hits 100%.

And it's not a bad idea, it's a great idea! Almost all good electric helis have a governor on the ESC. Just put your throttle curve to 100% across the board and hang on! This is the greatest little micro heli ever. Once you get past the Mach III headspeed, you will like it.

If you wanted a tamer heli, this is not the one you should have gotten!

Always blame the manufacturer instead of reading the manual

I agree is the greatest little micro today.
Follow manual curves and let it rip.
This one puts a smile on you're face

I swear never to try that trick again! What the hell is only money!

I will use this topic as an example of why the cheaper ready to fly end of the market gets such a bad rep!

People read down the topics on here for certain helis and see headings like this one!

I would like the OP to change the title of this topic as is it misleading and incorrect.

RTFM

60% of the time, it works every time!

you can also program the talon by moving the stick on the tx. look at the talon papers or down load the manual and se t the throttle to fixed end points and also add the soft start function if on already maybe lower the setting to spool slower. but no need to buy prog card or the usb link when you can change most setting by sticks, imho
