Parkzone Trojan

I purchased a used plane 4mo. old and it is stange on power up.
Put the stick all the way up and it slowly powers up to full power.after that it responds normal. Ckecked with parkzone and they said they have never heard of this. They want me to borrow the ESC and motor from another trojan and see what is wrong,then would I please call them back and let them know the problem.
Has anyone else had this problem?
I checked with the original owner and he said it has always done this.(new to sport). I have 3 other Parkzone warbirds and none do this.
I checked the start up rate and it is at 0.25 seconds.

Just a guess, but don't some of the heli ESC's and/or Tx's have a slow spool up facility.

Can the ESC be re-programmed ?

Yes
I was thinking the start up rate would be that.
It is set at 0.25
Two choices 0.25 or 1 second
The tx works fine with other Parkzone planes

It is definitely the ESC
Tried another one and motor worked fine
It seams like this ESC is set for Heli start up.
Does anyone know how to change it?

Eflight in parkzone plane

The problem was the ESC.
It was set for Heli with slow start up.
I set it for airplane and all works fine.

Hi 1Lasportsman,

Have you looked in the PZ setup manual. look at program 7 in the ESC setup, it may be in the heli mode.

I hope that this helps you.

Regards
Ian

Sorry, I did not see the post that you had already fixed your problem, at least there is a manual for others to look at if help is required.
