OK but slight problem with instructions Review by NoNuFink

I have only tested this ESC briefly to prove it worked, which it did. However, I also bought the programming card which makes programming the ESC a doddle. I later tried to program using the 'SET' switch. This invovlves looking ar LEDs. So where are the LEDs? Not detailed in the instrns (unless I missed it). The plastic box appears to be opaque plastic with a flat base which is where you would use the sticky pads provided to mount it. It turned out that the LEDs are inside the box and shine brightly through the plastic base (obviously not as opaque as it looks) so you can't see them if it's mounted in the logical fashion. Other than that no problems - I advise get the programming card as well. (Posted on 17/07/2015)

Program card allows for set up to meet my boating requirements exactly with instructions even a novice like me can understand - short trial run only to date / performed beautifully with soft starts and gentle spin turns on motor only. (Posted on 14/05/2015)
