Anyone know of / tried a workaround for this? Perhaps an inline switch between the battery & ESC connection? Suggestions? I've been engaging the throttle lock when turning on the radio. Thanks in advance.

Is the tricky part the start of the circle where you need the proper throttle /elevator/rudder ratios?
Are you starting downwind? If so, the cutting back into the wind under throttle may add rudder authority. There is so much rudder authority from the SFG's that you have to be careful of it when staying on KE for long periods under a higher throttle setting, like in the KE circle. I do the KE circle then a snap at 360 degrees, then back into the circle, so coming around at the same altitude and attitude is important otherwise it looks like crap. These planes will follow their rudder no matter what maneuver so you have to be extra conscious of the input when cutting back into the wind.

thanks guys. it was an incredible day, overcast but dead calm which is rare for Brooklyn.

the AP photographer was there with his son, who got a few flights with me on the buddy box, so I don't imagine they will be published.

If you have an Outlaw that contest would be easy to win. I've never seen anything roll as fast as one of those... I usually had to point mine up at a 20 degree angle before rolling so that I would have extra time to figure out which way is up after it quit rolling. It was a blur. Now rolling it for 30 seconds, that would be hard!
