Default My Goat 3s has reverse delay????

This one is weird, it seemed to work correct at first with no reverse delay. Then all of a sudden, it has reverse delay and no drag brake. I had it set up with a TQ3 radio at first. Then I set it up on a DX3R, and re-did all the settings, and did the one touch set-up over and over. Still has reverse delay and no drag brake. Just wanted to make sure Im not over looking, or missing something simple before I put it in a box and send it back.

The drag brake/instant reverse is dependent on having a novak crawler motor(which you have) because the sensor board is somehow different from standard novak motors.

Check to make sure that the sensor wire is properly seated at both ends, maybe it is not properly detecting the crawler motor. With a non-crawler motor, it acts like a standard Havoc racing speed controller.

You are 100% correct about the motor. So you got me thinking ( OOOH the pain ), and I pulled the motor from my other LCC, (also a ballistic 18.5 crawler) and soldered it up to the new Goat 3s that Im having the problem with, and like magic, it worked perfect. No reverse delay. Soldered the new 18.5 motor back to the new Goat 3s and it went back to having the reverse delay. I forgot to check the drag brake, but I guess it would have worrked since the reverse delay went away. Thank you, I would have sent the ESC back. And it's not the problem.
