Practice mode and climbing mode, what do they mean?

       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
I just bought two car speed controls from Hobby King that I received last week thanks to the lightning fast delivery of two months in transit. My question is what is the difference between the two modes and can I get rid of the brake function? They are going to be used in my Greek Bireme rowing warship and I would like to not have the brake function, thanks in advance.

Re: Practice mode and climbing mode, what do they mean?

I'm assuming you bought this controller:

Practice mode is the standard setting with forward/brake/reverse. Climbing mode is a version of drag brake that helps to prevent free rolling when you're going up or down steep hills. Crawlers would make heavy use of drag brakes.

Power the ESC first, then hold “*Programming Switch”* for 2 seconds. Let it go when you hear one Beep (Practice Mode) or two Beeps (Climbing Mode).
