Keep it simple stupid. Start with the settings on the center and then adjust if needed.

I just started my build yesterday. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. I can copy/fax the directions to you if need.
how are you waterproofing you hull. What engine did you go with? How did you decide to mount the electronics?
