A friend of mine has a Jive 120HV (not sure which version) in a stretched Synergy E5 on 12s and even with the throttle as low as 35% the esc is running at 100%, we tachoed the HS at 2500! The HS does not change between flight modes with very different throttle %.

He has done a reset and reprogrammed mode 4 and the throttle end points are at 100/100 (he tells me that version doesn't need calibrating), but its still the same, any ideas?

60% of the time, it works every time!

Sounds like the ESC is not being programmed to the correct mode.

When you state he is using 35% throttle, I'm assuming that is GOV mode?

When the unit initializes, does it count off the number of cells first?

Re-program again to mode 1, then program in Mode 6. Set a new GOV curve to 50%, and see if this helps.

He reprogrammed mode 4 which is governor mode, not sure what mode 6 is?

Is this a "power jive" or a "heli jive"?

Is the unit counting off the number of cells during initialize?

In the case of it being a Jive, reprogram mode 1, then program to mode 11.

If this does not work, then I start over trying to calibrate the low and high points of your throttle system.
