Sluggish Forward, overpowered backwards.

I got this second hand.
(Ignore the camera setup on the back lol)

Forward it is very gutless and can barely move, cant crawl over plants, has to be flat area.
Backwards its like a rocket.
See Video.
Any recommendations?

Thank you!

Re: Sluggish Forward, overpowered backwards.

That's what I have already done. Does not change the gutless power, I would not be able to revers out of anything, only forward.
Thanks!

Re: Sluggish Forward, overpowered backwards.

on page 13 of your manual. you have a drag setting. you want the drag (Yes) setting it sounds like you have it on drag (No) setting that is 100% throttle and 30% reverse you want The (Yes) setting thats 100%-forward and 100% rev
youneed to change the jumper to the top left not the top right.try that

Re: Sluggish Forward, overpowered backwards.

If it's not working like that, then there's probably some damage to the internal parts of the ESC.
