Confused about setting endpoints - Something doesn't seem right?
CC ICE 100
Caste Link: 3.251
DX 7 Tx (Airplane setting - so no throttle curves to worry about)
I have followed the instructions - even watched the finless videos (granted his videos are for heli mode - but shouldn't setting endpoints be the same?)... I keep getting really weird endpoints when setting up for Fixed Endpoints.
My hi endpoint keeps arming around 74%
My low endpoint keeps arming around 57%
What is up with that? When watching the finless video - his endpoints are much closer to 100/100? What is up with my endpoints? Thats only like a resolution of 31 units?
This is my procedure:
Startup the castle link software & set all of the options: Airplane mode, Fixed Endpoints, 5.5 bec, etc...
Set throttle endpoints on DX7 to 50% hi, 50% low.
Set throttle stick all the way up.
Plug in ESC to battery.
Verify I get 5 beeps (5s battery).
Start clicking up for the high endpoints.
Get musical tone around 74%.
Move throttle stick all the way low.
Start upping the low endpoints.
Get musical tone around 57%.
Verify that after the last musical tone, the ESC is indeed armed because if I move my throttle stick up the prop indeed spins.

These settings (with the trim centered) on a DX 7 are not unusual. Some of my DX 7 airplane set ups are around 58 for the low & 74 on the high on my ICE controllers.
Look at the "Throttle In" on your data log after a flight & you should see a min. of around 1.2 & a max (full throttle) of around 1.8. All will be good!

Yes - my throttle trim is centered & unused on E aircraft. Thanks for the verification!

That was in heli mode. I setup a new ICE HV last night (different heli) and ended up with 78h/68L. The ESC came with 3.2 installed but I reflashed it anyway. That didn't change the end points.
