Default 60 amp e-flite bec brushless esc programming

I have one of these in a 25 eflite pulse. I just got another for a great planes edge 540t and was wondering about the programming. The instructions say "count the beeps" but I've heard about cards and cables for your computer. It seems I can change the programming with the right equipment and a computer. Sooo, My questions are:

1) What do I need to purchace to do this?
2) Is it necessary for me to do this?

The pulse is doing just fine without adjusting timing or braking the prop

3) is there any advantage of me adjusting the prop or timing on this thing?

Any insight to this new part of the electronics side of the hobby would be greatly appreciated.

Scott

I dont see anywhere on the esc to plug it in to the computer. Do you use the plug that goes to the reciever?

If it's working well I would say there is not much to worry about till you learn more about it. If you have an E-Flite motor the ESC's default settings are probably good. I know that some ESC and motor combinations need different timing but I have not run into that situation myself. You might want to call Horizon Hobby customer service and they could answer any questions.
