Default Vt 80 slow spool in air

Vt80 throttle respons, in the air, is wayyyy slow.
Even from half stick..??
On the ground seems normal ??
Very hard to land . Big delay ,like 10 seconds.

If you bought it from Dreamworks check with Todd for possible solution

Sorry but was this the brushless pump version or earlier bushed pump. If using telemetry can you monitor pump voltage and rpm when in the air ?

make sure the tank is vented properly.. also if you are using a felt clunk, then it might need to be drilled out..

Had my VT80 out in the Sprint today and had a perfect run on all 6 flights. there is a spool up selection that can be done on the GSU I believe. I remember seeing several throttle curves. Also wonder if the transmitter throttle curve is set up as non linear or something different ?
