Default JP EnErG ESC stripping gears

Hi

I just picked up a 70A version of the JP EnErG ESC. It seems really good value but I've already stripped 2 sets of umbrella gears trying to get a decent soft start. Anyone have any tips with these ESCs?

I've set it to Very Soft startup mode. The manual says "Very Soft Provides initial slow 1.5 sec ramp-up from start to full rpm intended to protect delicate gears from stripping under instant load. This setting is recommended for either fixed wing models equipped with
gearboxes and/or helicopters. I assumed the 1.5sec ramp-up time was a typo but it seems not. Far too agressive for a heli!

The Governor mode says "Second range: Initially there will be a 15 second delay from start to full RPM. After this any further input from the throttle will be as normal". Is this what I should be using? What does it do? the manual is not very clear.

regards
