I have no problem taking off and even doing some scale flying in 3D Low Rates and you can even do a lot of simple 3D stuff in low rates as well.. Low rates are set at 70%.. High Rates are 100%.. I don't even use the GF mode anymore for that same reason of not having much elevator..
AND we have a winner! Gear switch did it. I reversed the gear channel so it's by default in 3D mode. No idea why it defaults to that goofy anemic mode. SO glad. Now I just have to cut off the EC3' and solder on deans and she'll be set for tomorrow!
