Yes it is set to drag brake . I didn't know that info tho thanks .
What if I set drag brake to 0% but use trim to adjust drag break that way I can fine tune it between laps .

Yes!. forgot to touch on that. Initial brake NEEDS to be equal to or slightly greater than drag brake, If the initial brake is less than drag brake it will be bad BC the brake will actually reduce for the immediate part of the brake throw instead of applying more brake as it should.

I would not recommend using trim to adjust this. it just never seems to work right. Once you get it set comfortable in the speedo you will not feel the need to adjust it.

I've ordered from him twice I think.

Both times I got what I ordered within a couple of days, this was a few months ago.
They also have a Facebook group. so might be wqorth asking about postage to Belgium etc there

He doesn't do enough with the website, but he's fine. As Skiddins said there is a Facebook group and also he's CraigW on RCTech.

Hi Paul, Merry Christmas (late) and Happy New Year (early). Can you recommend a heatsink/fan combo that fits the TP motors on the T4'14?
