Help!

Can't program throttle from center


I have a Taranis plus radio mode 2 and am trying to set the throttle stick to run forwards at up position and backwards pulling stick down from center. I've been studying curve settings until I fall asleep. So far I can get the forward to work, but nothing happens pulling the stick down???

Does the ESC have reverse?

No. But it can be reversed (accidentally).

Reversibility in programming is not the same as having forward/reverse capability in operation.

Yeah, I just found out the ESC in this (Vector 70) is FORWARD ONLY.

Nah! Time well invested in learning something new. That's my story and I'm sticking to it.

One of these should get you going and provide some headroom for a hotter motor if one is in your future: https://hobbyking.com/en_us/turnigy-...t-esc-70a.html

Happy wake-making!

As I can see from the Vector 70 ads-it has a flex shaft meaning it must stay fwd only because if you run the flex shaft backwards it will want to unwind and bind up so you can't change just change out the ESC to one that has reverse..(apologies if someone else already mentioned this)
