I'm having problems with my tx, futaba 7c, I need to set up the CC ESC for autorotation, I have 0 Throttle curve on normal mode but if I flip the TH switch the motor spins.
The instructions are not very clear.
How do you designate the transmitter channels?
It seems to me that the 3 position switch is not working, or the TH switch took over that feature.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

Use this link: http://www.castlecreations.com/support/documents.html
Read the documents at the bottom of the page

Setting fixed endpoints
Setup RPM Govenor Mode
Setup auto rotation

Follow the steps, I use a 7C no problems if you read the doc's.

Man, I know is easy for you.
But I don't have that much of experience with the fbl units.
What you are saying is to reverse TH channel in the tx?
And gov mode in the ESC or fbl unit?
Full pitch mode.... I have 0-25-50-75-100 on pitch curve.
What about if you decide to go fixed end points in your ESC, do you still have the autorotation feature?
Bear with me here.
What works better gov mode on the fbl or ESC?

Thanks
