If that is the case do I set the H and L to 100%? Or am i just lost?
not sure on the dx3 but here is what I know for the Sanwa Exces.
remove pinion from motor
plug in battery
turn on handset (ensure EPA throttle and break is at 100%, Expo set to '0', if you have it. radios with this setting usually have LCD displays)
hold small button near switch down (keep holding down)
Turn HW ESC black slide switch on
Green light should flash at base of ESC ( this is usually within 1 second)
press red button on esc once (you have set neutral)
push throttle to max (make sure the preset end point is 100% and the expotential is '0')
press red button on ESC once, ESC will beep and you have set full throttle
pull stick back on handset, again with EPA at 100% and expo on '0'. press red button again, ESC beeps twice I think, you have set brakes.
Then you increase the EPA throttle from 100% to 105%.
Don't touch the Expotential, this is a setting on how the throttle and brake behaves, you can set curves/ramps. a more experienced racer at your local track can help you on these. I set the Expo to -20% when the track is damp, it calms the power down, reducing wheelspin.
hope it helps.
