Throttle Setting: that's the starting mode. Hard is powering on the motor as soon as you give the throttle, soft is like soft idle up on helis.
Brake: electric brake to stop the prop and motor from spinning when you are on zero throttle. Very good for soaring, I reccomend this ON at all times.
Cut off: when the voltage drops (battery near empty) you can have soft or hard cutoff. Soft means that you can still get little power from the motor so you can "go home", the servos will always work.
The timing depends on your motor.
Read the first part of the question - this item was misposted in the "park fly & indoor model" before they fixed the database to the ESC section - hence my question. So as an "indoor model" - how do I make this fly ? and yes I can read it is an ESC.
You can't compare a supercheap ESC with a brand. Turnigy plush can't be compared to Super Brains or whatever. They are different. Buy a Super Brain, if you want a Turnigy ESC that is of a higher class. Works great. These ones are for the super cheap applications.
That there is no BEC. The receiver circuit and the high-amp circuit are optically connected, not electrically. So it should made interferences less often if you have problems with them. But you will need an UBEC to power your servos and receiver!
OPTO doesn't mean whithout BEC. There are OPTO ESCs with BEC, as well as non OPTO ESCs whitout BEC.
I suspect this ESC is not an OPTO one, although it hasn't BEC. I didn't notice any optocupler on its board. The ESC signal from the receiver is conducted to an input of the MCU whose outputs drive 3 MOSFET drivers IR2101. This is a very efficient driving circuit, that enhances ESC performance.
Good Esc, but programming doesnt work with this instructions, and i cant change timing

I wonder if this ESC can really be used up to 6s. It is made up with NTD80N02G MOSFETs, which are 24V rated, therefore the rating of the ESC should be of only 12V. I will use it only for 2s.
Otherwise, it is a powerfull ESC, handling 40-50A as stated, with smooth throttle control.

Bought Two of these for a twin project.Easy to program and the responce to power change is very smooth.ECS is cool to the touch after a 6 min at max power on a 3s 2200 45c battery.I will buy more.Kiwi4
