I have the AXI 2212/34 and I used to have problems with my CC10 controller.
1) make sure you have the latest software for the Castle Creations 10.
It is on the Web. Randy has a downloader cable at Baylands and can help you get the most recent software. When did you purchase the CC10?
2) set the CC10 for either advanced (10-25 degree) or moderate (5-15 degree) timing advance. I prefer the advanced, but it eats a little more power.
3) pulse the motor on/off about 10 times when you have trouble starting. That warms up the ESC and it has helped my P51 get started on a CC35 when I have "jitters" during first flight of the day.
By the way, Shawn Palmer of CC will replace your ESC if it continues to have problems. Just send email to Shawn, describe your problem and the tests you have done to correct it, when you purchased the controller, and tell him Crazy Ted told you to call. He is a super nice guy and always helps out.
