Default APS Motor Dyno help

I recently purchased the S3 and am trying to figure out the best settings to start testing my motors.

I normally only use CO27's 19t will follow once I pick a motor.

So basically I want to know what Voltage do I start at - end at
what RPM is a good number for this motor (CO27)
out of the other numbers that are listed, AMP draw, elapsed time and Input voltage what is good or bad.

Thanks in advance for your help.

Hello mate, I have the original APS unit and have used it for a couple of years now with no problems at all. I only run 1/12th so I usually test the motor using the same voltage as the pack would give during a race, ie, 4.8v. I don't know if that's the correct way to test motors or not, but so long as the settings as the same for all the motors you test, at least you'll be able to decide which has the most rpm, curent draw, etc. Hope that helps a little!
Cheers, Chris.
