Default INITIAL KICK on TURN ON

hello

I am controlling a REEDY DS spec Motor made by Team Associated with a Hitec SP 1801 n speed control.

When I turn it on at the Speed Control swtich, It gives an initial full rev kick for a tenth of a second or so.

Can I stop this as it is damaging my setup.

Thanks

V

Is your transmitter already on before you are turning on the speed control?

It can be normal for servos to momentairly twitch when power is applied to them in a normal R/C setup. Some receivers are a little bit more prone to it than others but since you are not using a normal setup I cant really say what is causing your issue. It could be the same voltage spike when powering up your controller board that is causing it.
