It will work, but just not aggressive enough. You will find that you will have lots of runtime with the factory default setting.

what do you run the most? there is no happy medium between mod and 19T motors. you'll give up performance somewhere. you can get away with running a stock profile in 19T.

but a profile designed for 19T will not cut it in modified. the default set up is designed strictly for a mod motor and even if you use it for that, it is very linear and people change it to their liking, the main ADVANTAGE of the VFS..

my suggestion is to come up with two profiles you like and save it in your handheld programmer and just switch back and forth.

Default Re hooking up a 2015 servo

Scho says...
Solder your fet lead directly to the positive terminal
You need to put a choke betwee the terminal and servo to stop amp spikes and
glitching !!!!! Unless you want a fried servo.

Is it common to mount the schottky diode at the esc terminals or do most of you solder it across the motor terminals ?

KO Propo Staff or someone in the know;
I have the Corally version made by KO, will the hand held programer work on this speedo, or do I need something else?

The hand programmer will work. The speedos are almost identical.
