Had something funny happen today with the GT33 on my 74.....I had not ran it in a while....and it was the first time on fresh programming, so my throttle low EPA was off....there I was, trying to get it running and setup....everyone who has one knows they start very easy but sometimes run in reverse....today it ran very well in reverse at all of the way up to half throttle or more...making very little power and thrust of course.....but normally I can add a blip of throttle and it will die, I'll flip it again and all is well......today when I gave it throttle it did not die..but when I cut the throttle, it burped and then ran forward on it's own.....self correcting....

The first time I've seen that in the 150 or more flights on that....
I've had mine run backward quite a few times, but NEVER self-correct! Mine usually just sputters and dies after starting in reverse.

i have one that has "self corrected" a couple of times....... most times i just hit the throttle kill so have not been worried about how or why.

Yeah, I remember the slimers starting backwards. Just bring it to idle blip the throttle and it corrects itself, most of the time.

Some of the slimers were even easier to start by flipping them backwards.

Thanks. I'll see what I can get done. I'll probably just make one for grins incase I need to ship it.

I just got realflight too. I had to leave the disk in the drive for a few minutes while it made strange repeating noises before it finally started to read it. I wonder if the disk has some kind of weird copy protection on it. Every other disk seams to spool up and start reading right away.

What is Android OP? My droid 4 doesn't list anything by that name.
