Throttle curves can be used to change the  response of the esc (SFR1 or UFR1230) to better match your driving needs. The full range of driving modes is detailed in the relevant manual and has been addressed in other articles BUT I want to specifically address a "problem" that I have/had.

So my problem is that I am fine driving the truck in cruise mode but could not cope with cruise in reverse. My esc settings therefore have "Cruise control active only when driving forwards" set. I have found that it is then very easy to overcook reverse. I could of course have selected to turn cruise off and go back to normal esc functions but that did not suit me as I found I was never sure what mode I was in.

What I decided to do was set up a second throttle map:-

Next I used a spare multifunction and included "change direction" and "throttle map 2" in it. Then changing the current prop channels setting for "Change direction" to "Multifunction n" and we are done with the set up.

 

We now need to create our throttle maps. So Throttle Curve 1 I have left the same (but may change that later to reduce the acceleration effects). The Throttle curve 2 was modified so that the first step remains 10% (you need that to kick the motor into life) and subsequent ones increase by 5%. You wwill notice that I have not messed with the left side (backward) side of the curve as that affects the brakes in the modes that I use.

Thats it, we are done!
