HeliJive 120 Bail out
Thinking to get this ESC to try out bailout mode. Any comment on bailout with this esc.

Thank you,

Have tested on bench without blades in. Seemed to work quite well. Used programming disc to set TH point. Supposed to be able to vary spoolup after TH, ie. bailout as a ratio of starting spoolup (1/6th of regular spoolup I think). Haven't tried adjusting spoolup time (default 12 seconds I think). Also, just a quick note that I saw some comments to tighten blades to ensure that in case of bailout it doesn't cause folded blades!

Will try an auto my next flight (haven't crashed latest heli yet and getting bolder ) and let you know

Cheers.

Well, I was debating whether I would be able to try this out as I have been having trouble with the tail wagging and have had to stop flying several times now before it might cause a crash. Turns out I have the gain set way too high on my vbar. Just found out after this last flight.

Great news!

Managed to test bailout three times, including one where the blades had slowed down quite a bit and just managed to spool up close to the ground.

Works like a charm. 2 seconds as described and without an ounce of tail twitch! Probably the vbar and high gain helping out there

Don't forget to tighten the main blades.

Cheers.
