Stephen, what David is trying to say is that we're pretty confident you don't need an extra tuning parameters from Pascal to fix your setup. You need to run through all the various permutations and you will find a working setup (money-back guarantee!). It can be frustrating, I know, but only needs to be done once and isn't a bad learning (or anger management :-) experience. Keep in mind you can reverse tx channel, reverse the radio min/max, reverse the "servo output" min/max, and probably the ESC. That's a lot of combinations, so trial and error, or a scope is your friend here. Good luck.

Dear David @ C KUO

Thanks for advice, I have tried most of the combinations but it seems that switching the min/max values of the throttle values in funjet1.xml is the only way of getting my Castle Creations ESC to operate correctly in MAN & AUTO 1.

I have a a similar situation with my Easy Glider and the Castle Creation's instructions are clear that the full throttle setting is 1000 msecs and min throttle is 2000 msecs pulse width.

I was hoping Pascal may have a way of reversing the input to the throttle strip read out.

I have searched the software and tried some obvious changes without success.  .

have you tried reversing Ch3 in the transmitter? The values for MOTOR? The ESC internal programming (some can be reversed inside the ESC)?

 1. Tx reversing
 2. programming the ESC reversing
 3. MOTOR value reversing

How does that work out? 8 different permutations? Just need to try them until AUTO2 and the Rc equipment match.
