Align ESC weird issue
A really weird thing happened to me yesterday.
Setup:
Mini Titan (please don't playa hate)
Stock TT Motor
Align RCE-BL25G in Gov Mode
Radix Blades
Futaba GY401

I plugged in a brand new Thunder Power eXtreme V2 2200mHh 3s pack. The normal beeps from the ESC were going on and I bumped the aerilon/elevator stick of my transmitter. Everything seemed normal so I took off in Idle up 3 (3D mode). Then the head speed seemed ramp up tremendously (spelling??) when moving the throttle stick slightly. Then the unthinkable happened. I lost all motor power. I have done autos so I started my decent. All was going very well until the heli was just about settled on the ground and I realized I was still in Idle up 3. Well the motor kicked in again and the helicopter started to break dance on the ground. Does the ESC go to default settings if you do not let it finish its beep setup when plugging in the battery?? Could I have disabled the gov mode?

Thanks for all your help.

That is definitely weird. No, you don't have to wait for the beeps to finish....I never do.

Take the ESC out of Gov mode and do a straight line throttle curve for your idle ups. The Align ESC gov mode is horrible!!! I had extreme tail issues with it in gov mode, took it out and it has run perfect ever since.Brian
