I got it to work. First I got the Pistol radio, then the brakes!
The whole trick is to arm the esc, then prodram it using your radio of choice.
The problem was that you could not program the esc( High/low endpoints) before arming it. My Pistol radio would not arm it.
So I programmed the ESC with my JR airplane radio. I set very small throttle endpoints.
Then I went back and re-programed it with the pistol grip.
Now I have brakes and All. Woohoo. 11:00P.M. and Im done.
