I suspect that whatever change fixed your 'head speed change rate malfunction' problem has also affected the spool-up rate. Hopefully Castle's software engineers will sort this issue out soon, however in the mean time have you considered using simple governor mode instead, or even just using fixed endpoints with an appropriate throttle curve? Spool-up is much slower in these modes.

Good info Bruce -- I've sent a link to this post to our software guys - -and I'll have them take a look ...

Thank you!
