    Why on start up does it make that sexy rev up sound with the motors going faster for a split second, is it something to do with the breaking of the new motors. Sounds cool anyway, but wanting to know why now after watching so many vids of it starting up. cheers

    Bringing this back up to the top. After watching plenty of vids on the inspire 1 for updating firmware ect out the box, it would appear the inspire does this little rev up when first turned on all so. Someone must know why it does it.

    I didn't notice that when I was researching the Inspire - maybe it has to do with dynamic braking? No, that's probably a function of the ESC circuits...

    It is a very sexy sounding Rev up sequence similar to the Inspire..

    Maybe the brief acceleration is just a security measure, initiated to fully tighten the props.

    I can't find the one that I saw, it was a demo day video on youtube with a bunch of guys in a parking lot and the guy mentioned the startup rev.

    The guy running it let an 11 girl year old fly it.

    I think you nailed it Greyfox - prop tightening makes sense...

    I must admit, it sounds pretty cool too - REV that engine after you start it up!
