The critical thing with troublesome ESCs is the MINIMUM pulse length. By always using low trim on throttle you:
1) Ensure that minimum is 1 mS which any ESC will recognise.
2) You don't run into any issues with the minimum changing if the Tx sends a minimum pulse length (which some do if they reset or lose signal for a moment). Some auto ranging ESCs will then reset their low point and of course when signal returns, low stick is then partial throttle.
3) All modern ESCs will automatically set their range to match the pulse range of the throttle channel. That's why you set them up initially with full throttle then pull back to zero and wait for them to arm. That's how they calibrate themselves.

Maybe I'm missing something but I still don't see why you would use throttle trim on an electric. They don't need an idle adjustment.

[QjUOTE=wjs;23746869]Think you will just need to try on your ESCs. Only thing I can think of is it may take more throttle stick to actually get your ESC to start going (depending on its limits).[/QUOTE]
