Aurora 9 Motor Control Menu

I'm setting up an Agea 2M electric and would like an explanation of the Motor Control menu. What's the function of "Speed" and "Delay" On and Off? I know it ramps the motor but I don't understand the details.

Thanks
Tom

Copy Aurora manual page 112 attached for reference.

When selecting Glider, one must select "motor" option during the setup which includes wing
and tail types, then select and actuate which switch is to be used.
User can then select speed delay, provided an ESC is used not just a simple On/Off switch,
that is how long motor takes from start to reach full revs, which can be set in increments
of .1 sec steps from 0 to 25 seconds.
"On Delay" can be set in increments of .1 sec steps from 0 to 3 seconds before motor starts
after switch is toggled.
If delayed start is set, then a warning alarm sounds during that 0-3sec waiting period.
Motor "OFF Speed" is the reverse of the start up, motor starts slowing down immediately
if the "OFF Delay" is zero, but can also be delayed upto 3 seconds after switch is toggled
but no warning beeps are sounded.

Easiest way to learn is to connect ESC to ch7 (ch7 is default - but user selectable)
and experiment without prop, note:
. Aurora 9 - Programming Problem? - Parameters must be set in correct order e.g. V_tail, see chart.
There are a large number of glider setups available under:
. Aurora 9 - Template Index: Acro, Glider, Helicopter, Rock Crawler, Tanks, Simulator.
and numerous Glider & Throttle settings available under the mixes section of
