Default Castle link throttle curve??

Does anyone know how to use the throttle curve graph? Im trying to tone down my Savage where I can use it without it flipping over at 3/4 throttle. Does my curve look like itll work for what I want to do?

Your curve looks ok if you want to be limited to about 50% power until you mash the throttle, at which point, you will get a violent delivery of the remaining 50% and probably flip over anyway. Try something a bit more progressive, r better yet, don't mess with throttle curves, learn throttle control. One of the main advantages of electric is that throttle is linear. You are taking that away giving yourself a narrower powerband by adjusting throttle curves. Honestly, it's not worth it. What some people do is soften the first 50% to prevent wheelies at the start, but you'll still need to control the old finger. It will always flip when you give it full throttle, better to learn to handle it, then you can drive any car, including other people's.

I usually program mine with just a slight hump UP, not down, and nowhere near as extreme as yours. It will give you a bit more power lower in the range but makes the top end more.....uhhhh....manageable? Should be the word I am looking for haha
