torque 4016/500 and airboss 80A

Hi all!

I'm new to the forum, just finish build my mxs 64", with the torque 4016/500 mkII and airboss 80A, feeling the motor is slow to get rpm, anyone had problems with the Airboss 80A? It's more logical that it's the ESC that's' the problem?

Wondering to buy the CC Edge 100A, is that to much? the cc 75A is a bit to small since the motor can peak 80A for 20 sec?

Thank you in advance for answers

Sometimes they have come to me programmed to "soft start". Run through the programing sequence and disable soft start and you should be good to go. You can find the programming manual here.

I have the same combo on my 64" and love it (ariboss/4016/500 mkii). Try resetting the programming (prop off).

Yes. Reset to defaults. If it doesn't seem to fix it, try it again.
I've had one that arrived setup for 'governor mode' which wasn't a whole lot of fun to fly until I reset it.

...I've also bought a couple, for cheap... where people were having issues and "didn't feel like fooling with it" that turned out perfectly fine after a reset, too

Thank you for all your answers, tried to reset it now, may be a bit better, and yes C_watkins, that's the issue x) i don't like stick programming x)

And also i'm i currently using zippy compact 35C battery's, they works perfect for my Logo 600 sx, so tought i would try, but is the C rating too low for the motor setup in a plane that don't use GOV ?

Don't forget to either set an idle trim or do it manually so that the motor is spinning very, very slowly at zero throttle. This is mentioned @EF and greatly improves throttle response!!

BTW.....I bet you're gonna love the 64" is my fav! What scheme you go with?
