Default Throttle Linkage Question

Hello all,

I am on the finishing stages of breaking in my engine. Up until recently , I didn't care to get the most of out my engine because I wanted to bring it along slowly.

Last night with the engine off, I set the travel on the radio so that the throttle has very little extra room to open when the trigger is buried.

The problem is that my throttle travel is set to 80% and I wanted to make sure this was OK.

Depends on you linkage, my throttle is at 67% and my breaks are at 85%, but you need to look at the actual linkage to make sure nothings binding are pulling or pushing the radio tray. your servo depending on which one your using should not be winning either......
