End points don't have anything to do with how you use the servo's.It's a limit for the throw of the servo's, set through the radio.

What radio are you using? It's pretty easy to set them, and once they're set correctly they will help save your servo's as well.

No, you're servo will do that. The EPA just limit's it when there is power. It's an elctric brake for the servo for lack of better terms.

If I'm not mistaken,you have a display screen for making the adjustments. Look for EPA or travel or something along those lines.
