Not sure if this is what he's hearing...as he's hearing it when he comes OUT of throttle hold.

It may be your soft start kicking in. I would try dialing in some throttle in the hold menu of your radio to keep the blades spinning. This should prevent your soft start from activating. however, it may cause your tail to spin out if you don't have enough head speed.

Give it a try.

Might be something with your BEC setup. Like an ELE. brake ?

Ive just started practiceing autos also, dunno if Im doing something wrong, but I cant bail out by hitting the T/hold.
I have to wait til its completely spooled down, switch back to normal mode then switch of the T/hold.
If I hit the hold while im still auto`ing I get 100% throttle that nearly strips my gear and causes my tail to blow out nearly 360 deg`s.
I dont see anyway of avoiding this, if the soft start worked I imagine it would take too long to spool up anyway, so once I flick the switch I am pretty much commited.

What is the purpose of the brake when programming the ESC?

The brake is used mostly on ele.cars and used on powered gliders also to be able to stop the propeller faster so the prop can fold quicker before loosing to much airspeed. Go thru your BEC setup and make sure the brake is disabled.

Spitfire,

The problem with the tail spinning too much is that you're going from zero throttle to 100% when you flip out of throttle hold. One of the work-around is using the throttle delay. The throttle delay will slowly ramp up the throttle speed over a specified time rather than going straight to 100%. it's not available on the DX7 but is available on the 9303. That's one of the reason why I upgraded.

One work-around would be to change from Idle 2 to idle 1 in throttle hold (and make sure that idle 1 throttle is lower). Then when you flip it out of throttle hold, it won't go to full throttle.

Also, don't wait until the head speed is really down before trying to bail out. If you bail out low, you're going to strip a gear or crash. Bail out high when there is more head speed.

miyagi son,(A)maybe your gears&pinion alittle bit too tight.(B)set up your throttle curves little lower on idle 1(V curve,75% mid)and idle 2 on flat 100%.(C)set up your timming on esc on high not mid.(brake disabled ofcourse.)(D) get another new motor.I've tried soo many times doing auto but could not relate to the issue that your having.(humming sound).the only thing that would happen when i start kick the throttle is my tail spin slightly to the right,thats all i could find.check trex forms web site.

I am not sure if this could be the problem but, I had a similar problem and I found out that my one way is going out. It would be very tight when you would spin it in reverse and after a while of going back an forth it losened up. It would auto horribly but when I would bail out it went to full power and never jerked when I released throttle hold. It smoothly transitioned from zero power to full.

Hope this Helps

If its not scale I ain't flying it, unless its a TREX

everything is running smooth as can be now. The esc was programmed with the brake enabled.
