Hi Everyone Despite having one of Rory's brilliant t kits I'm also trying to figure things out for myself and have hit a snag. I have a brushed micro motor and brushed ESC with a brake through a Lemon RX I've bound to a Blade Heli Controller Spektrum MLP4DSM DSMX. My problem is that if I want to rev...
