Default KO Helios ESC max

For my Helios, should I set my throttle and brake maximum to 100 as per my ESC's instruction manual or use the 150 maximum setting on the radio?

I believe my M8 maxed out at a 100 (not 150 as the Helios) so I never ran into this problem before.

hi

you can set the transmitter at 150 for both the throttle and brake high points.
what some do is set it at 140 when setting the ESC, and then after the esc setup set the transmitter settings to 150

Yea and some ESC will let out the smoke if you do it.
Ko Propo recommends that you set the throttle to 100 when setting up a VFS 1 ESC and says that you shouldn't change that setting higher than that or damage may accoure...Just wanted to make sure you have all the info...
