      I decided to compare the ‘plane slow‘ start with the ‘plane middle' start on the bench.  'Slow' first, prop-off (indoors)  and it starts instantly.  No point trying  'middle' on the bench, it couldn't be any quicker.  Does this tell me anything? (I didn't mention before, there's an AMRT in the esc to Rx line but it wasn't there when I first flew the model and the start delay was always there.) What I'm getting with the prop on is a delay (possibly a variable delay?) rather than a slow wind-up.  Does anyone else get a delay, (of about a second) after slamming to full throttle, before the motor starts?  I have the throttle set to full and then switch the throttle cut off to start. Can anyone explain the difference between the effects of startup speed and startup power please? Could the ESC be faulty - has anyone else got a similar ESC - if so, please, what are your settings? I'll try a change to the settings and test it  prop-on when the wind drops a bit.

      I don't know that model but you could estimate the weight - light balsa is about 6 lb./cu.ft.
