YEP 18A Bonsai V2 LVC tripping

I bought this plane and immediately had trouble with it. The ESC somehow reprogrammed itself into heli mode with soft start. Had to wait on a programming card to fix that. (real nice design choice with that, NOT)

Got the soft start resolved but now when I was testing for throttle range and response, it started tripping low voltage cutoff with a fully charged 3S 1000. I double checked that it's in auto detect mode for # cells. Actually selected LIPO type again to be SURE it was in auto detect mode. Same result. LVC was set to 3.0 so there is no reason it should be tripping. This is a battery I use all the time in another plane. No weak cells.

Any ideas what's going on with this ESC? It seems like they tried to load a ton of features into it but ran out of R&D money to actually make it work right.

    Set it to the correct cell count. I have had the same issue with this ESC on rare occasions.
