Nigel,

I think what Fhhuber is saying is that some ESC's 'expect' a throttle signal that moves in one direction while others 'expect' the opposite signal.

You are quite right that different...

Mike,

Actually it's MUCH easier now than it was in the old days. Back before servo reversing on the Tx, if you couldn't reverse control direction using linkages you had to either buy separate left...

I'm not saying that you are wrong, but in the years I've been flying and the many ESC's I've come accross I've yet to find one that needed throttle reversing when using JR/Spektrum.

The low rates out of the manual should be fine, just use some exponential too to soften the response a little.

For your small batteries that's all that's really required. A cinder block bunker is also fine of course but vast overkill IMHO. They are toy airplane batteries, not unexploded bombs;)
