Default Radio Configuration

This is slightly off topic but I'll rely on the fellow BMI drivers for help first. I rus stock and have a Novak TC2 ESC, a Novak XXL receiver and a Futaba 3PK radio. I am wondering how some of you suggest setting up the radio. Braking and throttle? Any other settings I should be concerned with? Any help is appreciated.

Thanks all,
John

With my FT TC3 I just set my 3PK to standard config.
No ABS or brakes, default throttle settings (I just change the profiles on my ESC instead of radio).
I then just set/adjust end points and trim.

I also run -15% steering exponential (personal prefference).

I am using 25% steering expo. I would like to be able to apply a little more drag brake at the neutral throttle position. How is this the most easily accomplished. It would also be really nice if it were on a dial so I could adjust it on the fly.

Thanks again,
John

I dont use either the 3pk or the c2 , so this is just a shot in the dark , but can you either set a profile in the c2 with the pit wizard , or use the trim setting on the radio for an on the fly adjustment ? i dont know if the trim would affect high point throttle position though.
