I just bought this kraton 8s. I got some lights for it, sometime while I had the receiver open to install the leads for the lights I messed up the esc I guess? Now when I use it, I only have 50% forward and 100% reverse? I don’t know how I did this. Switching the throttle on the controller doesn’t fix it, just reverses the controls. Please help.

Welcome @diesel Switch two wires on the motor/esc or program the esc to get the motor to go the other way. Programming the esc is easy and in the manual.

If that doesn’t work and your going backwards and power is still 50% in rev 100% in forward then recalibrate your remorse with it in normal not reversed settings. I had a similar issue with forward was getting the power reverse should get and reverse was getting full throttle. It was due to my calibration

Yes, minor detail. Throttle must be in reverse on transmitter AND you have to the throttle range calibration.
Just re-learned that myself. Many manuals refer to it as 'Futaba style'.
