I use some turnigy plush speedys in my smaller foamies and yes this is correct. Just note you need to do this immediately after the startup beep sequence and not after it enters the programming beep sequences or you will end up changing different options. Your best bet is to lookup the esc manual for the one you have, then you can check all the settings if the throttle end point setup described above doesn't work. Hope it helps.

If you had the throttle channel reversed when you bound it then your esc entered programming mode and you will need to follow the steps above to reprogram the throttle.

Yup, that's exactly what happened

Got the maiden on my WMPF Yak-55 this morning in my backyard before school. Flew really well for the super small space I had. I need to put the extended servo arms on the elevator and rudder because there is no where near enough on the elevator. I pretty much had to fly it up into a hover. Will post a video hopefully tonight

This throttle linkage look good? It's fully open right now. No binding at all.

So I have this new-to-me hunter v-tail quad and I couldn't figure out why the motors were spinning up at different times, I thought the FC wasn't mounted properly so it was trying to autolevel or something stupid.

Nope... had to do the throttle end point calibration on each of the ESCs.... and just after I'd written how to do it too!
