I think it must have been fblmc101.asm. I don't remember changing the name but I must have to simplify it slightly. I have early versions with fblmc101.asm and personal file name extensions so that must be the one I started with. Sorry for misleading you.

I think you could try changing compScanTIMEOUT to 48000 as per the original version; this will allow more time for the motor to turn during startup.

I don't think USB will drive a motor and I don't know what "4a BEC set for 8.4v" really means. Bernhard referred to startup currents of 20A in discussions. I think I set my PSU limiting to 1A in testing without a prop. Although old it is a high quality one that I'd expect to sustain a surge without fading. Is it possible your device cannot drive startup loads? You seem to be very close if it runs with a manual start.
