Default Turnigy Multi Function Watt Meter

Can some one who owns this meter give me a short course (or point me to a source that can) on the practical setup & use of it?

http://unitedhobbies.com/UNITEDHOBBI...idProduct=6553

They include a so-called manual (index card size in Chinese shorthand) but it's not very helpful. I know how to use it for the basic functions Ok but it has some "bells & whistles" that the dinosaurs (like Watts Up, etc.) don't have. Those are where I could use some help.

I have an electrical background so there's no need to go into electrical theory, ohms law, etc.

Best regards, Richard

The only bells and whistle I know of that turnigy meter over the wattsup would be the servo plug on the side that allows you to either test the motor without having a RX in line or to make sure your servos work before installing them.
For that, you plug the ESC or servo up to the unit and connect a battery. Use the pot on top to control the motor or servo.
