Default Muchmore Fleta Pro ESC Question

Hi to all.

I just bought the Muchmore Fleta Pro esc and was wondering what is the difference between "Power Level" and "Drive Frequency".

Plus, the manual says that if you set the "Drive Frequency" at high levels you get more smoother feel, but esc temperature will rise. That does not make any sense, does it?

Thanks.

Power level is the same as "punch" or "initial drive" - how quickly the throttle comes on. Often it is just a case of what the minimum amount of throttle is. ie: when you first pull the trigger is is 5% or 15% (or what ever it is set to), but in some ESC's it can also be a little bit of exponential built in, the throttle comes on harder through the range, not just initial. Pretty sure the fleta is just initial/punch.

Drive frequency is how many times per second that the ESC sends a power(voltage) pulse. At full throttle, it is fixed/constant - simple pass through of maximum. At partial throttle, it can vary, higher frequency = more often, therefore smoother. But also means the ESC is doing more "work" hence will run hotter.
