Edge brake problem
Is there any solution yet for the brake problem with the Edge controllers?
It would actually be more correct to call it a "motor starting problem when a hard brake is used" for a folding prop in a sailplane.
It seems that not every Edge has the problem, but I've seen it on about half the Edge Lite controllers that I've encountered.
The first motor burst is normal. After the brake stops the prop, the next motor burst is EXTREMELY harsh and the logs show a big current spike.
If the brake option is disabled, the motor starts normally every time.
I've heard that Castle is aware of the issue and working on a fix, but haven't heard anything lately.
Personally, I am avoiding the Edge controllers for sailplane use and choosing something else until the issue has been fixed.
