Some customers are reporting that their controller is not reaching 100% throttle. This can be affected by the mounting system you use. There is a magnetic sensor inside the controller and if pressure is applied to it the throttle percentage will be reduced. There is a threader screw hole below this area to help mount your controller. The down side is a longer screw used to mount the controller can reduce the throttle. The solution is to use a shorter screw, cut the screw you have, or do not tighten the screw all the way.
Please see the video below to understand how this happens and how to avoid it.
