Default Flyzone ESC and Futaba

I recently purchased a Flyzone Sensei trainer. I have an old Futaba 8U which works, except I had to reverse the servos on the Rudder and Throttle..The issue is the ESC doesnt seem to recognize the endpoints. The Motor doesnt kick in until the stick goes over 50%. I have tried adjusting the trims, the throws and reset the model to default, but I cant seem to alter this behavior. Any ideas?

Thanks

I have to reverse the throttle channel on my Futaba radios for all of my electric planes. Once I did that everything worked fine. Can't understand what would cause the issue you are seeing.

Yeah that's what I have read too, but just weird it only starts the motor at 50% stick movement. Moot point at the moment, the maiden flight ended up in a tree. I was probably about 75 yards away and the depth of field, I couldn't tell I was THAT close to the trees, thought I had plenty of room. Rookie error....ALWAYS GO HIGH!! =) Anyhow, had to order a new Fuselage, Landing gear and Prop...but not terribly bad. Depending on shipping, should have her back up in no time =)
