Len,
What batteries and voltage are you feeding into the LGC-15 for gear and brakes?

Agree with all the above. The problem I had with LGC-15 was there is no way to have different voltages for retracts and brakes. When JP retract motors are limited to 2S and you need 3S for JP brakes...

I think my JP gear controller was limited to 2S printed on the case. That's why I was using 2S for brakes at first.
Can the JP gear motors run on 3S LiPo?
