Default Question re: Jeti Prog. Card for Advance Plus ESC

Guys, if I don't get the card, are the default settings fine? Honestly, I don't know what the correct settings would be on the card, as I don't know what "Hard or Soft" cutoff mean, what the Motor Cutoff Voltage should be (if not the default setting), "Prop Brake on or Off", etc (I understand that I would choose High Timing since I'll be using an AXI 2826/12, and Throttle Response is a personal preference. Suggestions? Thanks!

All that information is explained in the ESC's instructions, but here's the ten-cent version:

Hard vs. Soft cutoff: How the motor shuts down when the battery hits the low voltage cutoff point. The motor shuts off completely with hard, and pulses with soft.
Motor Cutoff Voltage: Should be 3.0 Volts per LiPoly cell.
Prop Brake: Stops the propeller from spinning when you shut the motor off. It either stops quickly or free-wheels. You normally want it to freewheel unless you're flying a plane with a folding prop.

Thanks Matt, just what I was looking for. I was hoping there were some instructions with the card. We'll see what the defaults are.
