ptglass,

Welcome as the first member to the new Scorpion discussion forum! Just to let you know, your ESC shipped out today, so you should have it by Saturday.

On my testing with the 35 Amp ESC, I found it best to leave the PWM setting set on auto detect. It seemed to do a very good job of finding the proper frequency.

For the timing advance, Auto Detect usually selects a conservative setting that insures easy start-ups and good throttle response. I have found that, in most outrunners, manually setting the timing to 15 degrees gives about 5% more power output, while still maintaining good start-up reliability. About 1/2 of the outrunner motors I tested would hiccup occasionally when the timing was set to 25 degrees, so I would not recommend that.

One thing that you probably should do is to set the cell count to the number of cells in your battery pack to make sure that your LVC works properly. For the 500T motor, I would assume that it would be 3 cells.

Good luck with your installation, and enjoy your flights!

Lucien
