Smile GTX Brake Question

I looked through each of the postings, but did not see this question asked unless I missed it. The GTX has two brake styles 1. Minimum Brake 2. Drag Brake. Can anyone explain how each one functions ? I love this product, and know there is awesome support, but there are no descriptions as to what each setting does. Once I understand the brakes, I would love to know what the other settings achieve like Drive Frequency, Minimum Drive Percentage, Minimum Brake Percentage, and Dead Band ??? Can describe this to a newbie ? Thanks

Nope...you don't need any fans or any other fancy stuff. The GTX is a bulletproof speedo. Honestly, I don't know why everyone isn't using one...

i now a guy who ahd a vfs-1 in his bj4 it would thermal on the most agressive setting and the least aggressive and all the way between. he was running a 9x2 hara v2. he borrowed a q2 and it was fine the q2 didnt even get warm. he ahd a gtx and loved it but one of the solder tabs broke off of it when it was in his pro 4 so he bought the ko.
