No joy Phoenix 35 and 4.0.5 firmware

Trex 450 clone working fine in heli governor fixed rpm mode. I saw I was several firmware upgrades behind, so I flashed the firmware on my Phoenix 35 to the latest 4.0.5. The damned heli ran like crap and would barely hover. Normal, ID1 and ID2 were ineffective. Tried changing motor timing and PWM settings. Nothing made it better. Downgraded the firmware to 4.0.2 and the heli is happy again.

Just one more head scratcher in this hobby of head scratching

Has anyone contacted CC about this problem or filled out a bug report. I have a Phoenix 25 that I need to update but I looks like 4.05 is not what I want.

Nice to see that Castle is still supporting those old ESC’s.
