Default Kopropo EX1 Mars help

Alrighty, im terrible with all this electronic stuff so I figured i'd ask here.

what i've got:

Kopropo ex1 mars
Ace 1015 servos

So, two things;

1) For whatever reason, my throttle servo is running backwards, when I hit the throttle, its making the brake rotation, and when i hit brake it pulls on the throttle.

2) I'd like a walkthrough on setting the trim or whatever its called on my servos, so that I dont burn them out or break any parts.

Thanks in advance for any advice!

Do you have a manual? If so; I would take the time to read it. You just need to reverse your throttle channel. This can be done thru the radio.

EPA or Endpoints is what you are looking for, these control how far a servo can travel in one direction.

Trim and Subtrim are used to center the servo. Use subtrim first as it doesn't not affect total throw.
