Cool Strange behaviour when braking

Hello guys,
I'm new here: cheers to everyone.
I'm experiencing strange behaviour: when accelerating and breaking, after releasing the controller the engine keeps spinnig for sometime.
Can it be a ESC problem?
I drive a FTX Vantage Brushless.
I've just uploaded a short video on this issue: [www] youtube [dot]com/watch?v=eh9Yl-cSGJ0
Thank for your help!

Cheers
Iren

Looks like the throttle dead band on the ESC needs to be increased. What is happening is the pot on the transmitter may fluctuate after braking just enough to allow the motor to go forward again. The throttle dead band need to be wide enough so that the esc knows that this zone is neutral. You may find that doing the ESC/Transmitter recalibration may help as well but make sure the endpoints are at 100% forward and reverse and that the trim and sub trim is zero before you do this.

Here is the manual to the esc and it is option 6 you need to increase. FTX Vantage ESC PDF Manual
