Default Problem with sidewinder 5700.

Im about to sell it, and its acting weird. I give it full throttle and its kinda finicky. It will spurt for a few seconds then it will go.

How do I reprogram it and what could be causing this?

You are going to sell it when its acting weird? What batteries are you using? If you have poor packs it will cog. What vehicle is it in?

If the startup power is set wrong, it'll cog. If the batteries are not able to deliver good amperage, it'll cog. If the voltage cutoff is set and you're not using LiPo, it may cog and if the gear ratio is too high in the vehicle, it could act like this.
