Soft Start with CC Ice HV 120
I'm having problem with ESC . When spooling up it start off in soft start but when it get to 30% stick it jumps to set headspeed 1850hs. I tried starting in Idle 1 at just below mid stick (about 5 degrees) and use Thro Hold to start , it did the same thing. I didn't notice yesterday as i was at home in thick grass but at field is very short grass so the heli spin about 240 degree before tail catchs it.

Besides scary the ---- out of me ,it has cause the blade to hit blade grips. I've try lowing the intial spool up rate to Low (2) but that did not help at all. I had 2 other guys at feild look at my setting in program and radio and no one can see why it's doing this.
Here's my setting. Once it spooled up it's fine.

Castle Ice HV 120 ESC

• Normal Idle 0-30-30 Flat
• Idle 1 70 Flat
• Idle 2 100 Flat
• Settings for Governor Mode: Set RPM
• Initial Spool-Up Rate: Medium try Low still did it
• Head Speed Change Rate: Medium
• Governor Gain: Low 15
• Battery Pack Voltage: 3.70 (adjust settings for 12s)
• Motor and Gearing: (adjust settings for 115T main and 12T pinion,
560KV motor, 10 poles)
• Desired Head Speeds: 1850, 200, 2075

ANY IDEAS ?

i could be wrong here, but i can think of one thing that could fix it. When spooling up, it is possible that you could be increasing your throttle stick too fast and you're actually moving the stick faster than the motor/ESC can reach the RPM you want. That will cause the RPM to jump to your desired 1850 as fast as possible once you get off-sync with it. Try to increase your throttle stick VERY VERY VERY SLOWLY and see if that does anything . Can't hurt? I also had some problems with my controller (an HV160) and couldn't get governor mode set up correctly. I learned that i mixed up some programming and after making adjustments to certain things (auto-bailout mode), i didn't re-calibrate the throttle like i NEEDED to. You might have gone out of order or something as well, because it DOES matter . Another thing you could do is just to reprogram the ESC. Won't take that long and that way if you skipped something that could fix it .

It's done. The esc will not turn on, Won't connect to CC Link cable , won't even spark when plugged into 12S. At field before it quit I turn off the bail-out reset ESC and try to spool up using throttle hold in Idle 1 did the same thing. When i got home I was going to set to Default and try fixed end piont that when it won't even connect or spark.
It's off the heli ,return claim done, In box ready to ship back Monday Morning ASAP. I even write them offering to pay next day mail to have it back by 12-31-2010 we will see. 3 days off , 2 sets fresh 45c batterys with no plans by to fly and have BEAUTIFUL weather here in Miami,FL .

On the upside Heli's in 1 piece.. others have not been so lucky.

3.25 is not the latest anymore, have you tried 3.26 with 3.28.1?
