I can't get the radio to do anything with the ESC plugged into CH3 and it set like this:

OFS => ABK 100%

LINK OFF SWITCH F DOWN

It just doesn't do anything, the motor doesnt respond to the throttle stick either Andy, I think it's because I'm using the BUTTERFLY command on the throttle stick but it's really setup for flaps, confusing huh?

Then I tried the ESC on CH8 and set it like this:

OFS => CH8 100%

LINK OFF SWITCH F DOWN

It does work this way, although I can also control the motor with the CH8 rotary knob. I also notice that when I flip the switch, the motor doesn't give the power. I try the knob all the way up and it gives much more power. It seems like the percentage number in the MIX is a percentage of where the CH8 knob is currently at.

Too bad the Don Edburg book doesn't mention a full house sailplane with motor.

There's gotta be more guys out there with a setup like this. YOO HOO!!
