Okay I've searched and read the forums and watched U Tube but still can't figure out how you guy's are getting the ESC to start up quickly (I guess its called bailout?) after hitting TH for doing auto's.
I've set the endpoints and calibrated the throttle.
I installed the latest firmware on both the control box and ESC.
I'm pretty sure that I have all the numbers right in the settings on the ESC and it flies great but I still can't get it to spool up quickly after doing an auto or after hitting TH.
My throttle curve in
Normal is 0-33-70-70-70
Idle up 1 is flat 76
Idle up 2 is flat 80
I'm guessing I need a flat throttle curve of around 30 or something in Normal mode with a switch for some sort of motor off or arming?
Being a nitro guy, I have always set up my heli's with a sort of linear curve in Normal mode to control the spool up until it hits the gov. and for idle etc.
Do I need to do it differently on the elect?
On my other electric heli's I don't use any bail out, or whatever they call it.
I seem to be in and out of the heli's from time to time and I'm old so I forget everything I've learned after a few months away from the hobby.

Don't mean to ask such silly questions when they've probably been answered a hundred times but I can't seem to find the answer.
Many thanks.

Also, I'm running an Align MX 750 530KV motor on the TT Raptor E700. I'm not sure but I think the timing is set for 15 deg. on the ESC, is that okay?
Couldn't find that bit of info either.

For what it's worth...

While I dont own this ESC I can only speculate that it must work similar to how a Castle ESC does.

Slow spool up is based on ESC seeing a zero value from throtle as expected.

*Go to TH menu in your Tx and slowly increase the default output value until motor activates then decrease a few numbers until motor quits.

The ESC will interpretate as "other than zero" and should not slowly spool up and instead activate bailout.

Im using a Spektrum and the TH value for bailout hovers in the number 17 output.

Hope this works out for you.
