How and what ESC settings do you put on yours?

Brakes, ON or OFF?
Switching Freq? 8 or 16kHz? My Turnigy Trust 55A has this but i never seen this in other ESC.

but nowadays i just flash them to simonK firmware when i get them..
nothing more to do anymore with settings.. just throttle cali and use and abuse!

Lift is where you find it.
I flash mine with SimonK too. No muss no fuss. They work better for multirotors too when flashed.

Not all can flash.. at least my Trust 55 is not on the list.. I forgot to take a look at the circuit when I remove one of the shrink. Now that I put it back with bullets soldered, I dun have a bigger shrink to pass through that size now if I cut open.

There is this timing setting: auto, 7deg for multi poles motor, and 30deg for out runner! My motor is both multi and OR! I opt for 7deg since its a disc shape with 24poles.

Yes freq I choose 16khz.

7 is for in runners, with usually less than 5 poles. 30 is for more poles, like almost all outrunners. Choose 30 definately for a motor with 24 poles.

Ok will switch to that.
Just another elementary question on the Tx. I know this is a multi rotor heli setup, but we have to chose Acro mode as model type?

Yep. The FC uses normal THR/RUD/AIL/ELE input instead of anything pre-mixed for helicopters.
