Try the external capacitor for the Spektrum reciever. Some ESCs have too low of a voltage output to work well with the Spektrum recievers, especially in cases of weak batteries or 4 cell. Running the capacitor or a reciever battery pack usually takes care of it.

Also, if you have the ability to increase the BEC voltage that would help as well. Run both a power cap on the ESC and use the SPM1600 Voltage protector and you should see the problem eliminated. Also, if you have had your receiver since before May of last year, it wouldn't hurt to send it in for a Free firmware upgrade too.

I'm not sure if you can with the Futaba, check your manual. I believe on the Keyance and I know on the KO VFS-1 you have the ability to do this.

You haven´t left the fast response button on or something have you? Futaba and sanwa fast response won´t mix.
