Ok I looked at everything, and it all looked good. The gov mode was "set rpm" and "Autorotation enable" was checked. So I tried once again to set up my radio for auto bailout and this time it worked fine. It held a steady rpm until 10.5%, then the motor died all together. If I went back up it would start again at 13% and then die right at 10.5% like before.
Next I tried it. With throttle hold off I went to normal (flat 0 curve) to arm the esc like I was staring with a new pack. Then I changed to idle1 and the motor started its normal slow start. I let it spin all the way up and then I grabbed throttle hold. Once the motor stopped I clicked it off and it spun up at a much quicker than the slow start ... by golly it works
