Blade SR
DX7 program for Blade 120 SR?

Does anyone have a recomendation on how to program the DX7 for the Blade 120 SR?

I followed the youtube video instructions for setup into acro mode but this just doesn't seem right to me plus I would like to have the option of the dual rate like the factory controler for those times I fly in a confined space and just want to slow it down a little still yet. I did find a posting for a program for a DX6i for the MSR online but I am concerned that I haven't programed my 7 with that 5th channel for the 5 in 1 to do it's thing. Also now she seems to be developing a bit of a tail bob. Could trying that MSR program have messed it up?

For heli mode on the DX7 you should set Swash type 1 servo 90%

Thank you but what about the rest of the settings? Can anyone explain to me what the rest of the settings should be set to? The DX7 manual told me how to program it but not what each programs effect has on the Heli. I know this will have a long answer but I'm a newb and really just am having a hard time figuring this out on my own.

If I get a chance I will check my settings in my DX7 and post them.

I always use the airplane setting. Seeing I don't need pitch and throttle curves. You can use dual rates as well, but I leave mine at 100 as well as using no expo. Makes setup a snap. Bind and go fly. Chuck

While it is flying okay in Acro mode on the DX7 I would also prefer the Heli mode as I can set the throttle to turn off to keep it from accidentally spooling up or as a quick kill switch for crashes whereas the Acro mode does not afford me this option.

Yes that is true. However the 120 won't arm unless you are at low stick. Chuck

Yeah but once it's ready it'll spool up and tear itself to pieces quicker than you can say. "What the?" if you accidentally hit the throttle.

Here are mine for my DX7. Pretty basic:

Swash Type - 1 servo Norm
Throttle Hold Enabled -5.0%
Countdown Timer: 5:50

Throttle Curve:
Norm: 0-35-50-65-100
ST-1 & 2: 0-INH-50-INH-100

DR & EXP:
Rudd/Elev/Ail - Exp(LIN) - D/R (100%)

No reversing needed

Hope this helps.

Sorry it toke me so long... and it looks like someone beat me to it but I have attached a scanned copy of my settings from my excel spreadsheet.
