Dude, it's his thread, his opinion. After reading 14,000 in this thread he's probably formed an opinion based upon quite a bit of experience.
Lay off of AJ. I don't know why he didn't close the thread ages ago. I come -- feel the same feeling he has expressed, and leave ... then after a few months -- come back... ---repeat.

He didn't fall off the toy truck yesterday -- he's been around the hobby long enough to deserve more respect than I've seen here lately.

A quite laughable response from someone without any aeronautical credentials outside of toy airplanes and without any supporting references, proof or documentation.

Just my opinion as a "lowly reader" as you have previously described anyone with fewer posts to this forum than you.

But, hey, what do I know compared to an RCG thread starter?

There are lots of fighter jocks and engineers out there but thread starters are rare.

Ok..the settings are:
1. brake type: Off/soft/hard
2. timming mode: low/mid/hi
3. cut off mode: soft cut/cut off
4. start mode: fast/soft/very soft
5. gov mode: OFF/gov-low/gov-hi
6. Li-XX cells: auto/2 cells/3cells/XX cells

AJ, How will improper settings destroy the ESC and Battery? And more specifically, which setting will cause the most damage.

Well, LOGIC would indicate that if you are using an EMAX 40a ESC that you have a brushless motor. The battery capacity is not relevant. Dkumagai gave some accurate recommendations in his previous post, however, I would suggest you set the brake function to 'Hard' as this will reduce drag when gliding.

Well, my intention was to get his attention, not yours. My only endgaame was to get the two of them complaining at me so's the two of them would get off each others back, just trying to diffuse this is all.

Being a lowly engineer I have to tip my hat to AJ at his ability to run this thread as well as provide good information to those interested in this hobby.

I enjoy being part of this thread and while sometimes I provide not the best solution or answers I do try my best. I will accept criticism with the understanding that I still have a lot to learn and can only do so by asking questions then reading the answers without saying something derogatory.

With that said I believe sometimes emotions run strong here and words and opinions are thrown out without understanding the consequences.

Anytime adults stoop to throwing insults and slander is the time to step back take a breath and grow up. We are supposed to be civilized and conduct ourselves accordingly.

I may be out of line but this is supposed to be a hobby and we are supposed to have fun. Lets respect each other and keep our opinions to ourselves.

Just my two cents.

Vince

Forgive my ignorance but wouldn't setting the brake to hard slow it down MORE. Wouldn't it be like throwing out an anker instead of just turning off the motor. If you set the brake to soft the prop will slow down to a stop, instead of the prop stopping straight away like an air brake or air spoiler!!

Just a quick question on the brake function. I assumed that brakes lock the bell in place by pumping a constant low current into the stator coils rather than sequencing them to induce rotation. If that's the case, does having brakes on draw a significant amount of current? I also wonder how much drag a prop generates spinning around in the wind. When I'm gliding the prop almost never stops moving even at low speed and it takes a fair amount of force to advance the bell on my motor. Haha guess that answers my question.
