+1 on that. Auto endpoints suck, you either have to do something VERY unsafe (arm your system with your throttle set to HIGH and then drop it to low, relying on the ESC firmware to not run the motor on arming; or do as Steve says and put the throttle to maximum for a full 4 seconds a the FIRST throttle setting you hit for that length of time after the system is fully armed. Takeoffs that you try to keep straight to counter the torque generally wind up with a throttle below max getting stored as your max throttle and you lose a lot of resolution on the throttle stick.

I have this issue all the time. Phoenix won't let me in even when I KNOW I'm typing the password properly. Other times it lets me in just fine. Any ideas?

He already responded to my email, like 20 minutes after I sent it. Blazingly fast service.

I oil all bearings every three months. Even the planes that sit as trailer queens.

Its a motrolfly. I bet Ken will take excellent care of you and your motor.

I have never done that.

The guy that wrote that needs some writing lessons.

No error... but when I hit enter after entering the appropriate password, the dialog box just flashes at me as if to say I used an improper password.

It often makes a world of difference....your throttle come in when it is supposed to, it also prevents the throttle reaching 3/4 stick and not getting any more throttle after that...

Possibly so, but I had no problems understanding it...

Yea I get a little picky. I write specs in my day to day.

Does a hacker speed control require end point setting the same as a CC?

I completely agree. I found a much better version (and shorter!) of the document that was written by a user, but I haven't been able to find it again.
