I'm not aware of a vid for the 40amp unit, but he programmed a Kontronic 80 here:http://www.helifreak.com/showthread.php?t=58079

I run this ESC it is simple, essentially it has default heli programming built in, you just need to tell it to use it. Watch the vid then read your instruction leaflet and you will be fine.

Yes he has (If by "450" you mean T-Rex 450). If I hadn't seen that video I would have committed suicide! Now my ESC is nice and set up. -Migs

The easy way to set the jazz up is

1. set a linear throttle curve in normal mode 0,50,100. *VERY important*
2. Place jumper on the jazz
3. power up the jazz
4. wait for the beeps
5. remove jumper
6. wait till you here 4 beeps in a row (Heli mode)
7. go to full throttle (you have now programmed in zero and full throttle into the ESC)
8. depower the ESC
9. repeat steps 2 - 5
10. wait for 9 beeps (lipo Mode)
11. go to full throttle.
12. power off heli.
13. reset normal TC to something like 0, 60,60,60,60
14. Power up the heli
15. Spool the heli up at zero pitch
16. check HS and change the mid point of your TC to get the HS you want.
17. set the TC to straight across using the value you have just found at mid stick
18. go enjoy your new jazz

When setup properly you shuldn't have to do any mumbo jumbo to get flying, When the HS is high enough to fly go for it, you don't have to wait for the HS to stabilise before giving collective.
You can then switch between flight modes (and thereby different HS) at will.
