I flew my R60 for the first time in quite a while today and I really wasn't happy with the way it felt. It was slugish on the controls and just felt weird to me. I think that over the winter I got way to used to my sim and now I like how the sim feels better! I am just wondering what you guys run for cyclic expo?

Depends on what you run for paddles and headspeed.

I run no expo on any of my machines. I like a pretty lively machine. But that is me.

Build it, fly it, crash it. Repeat as often as needed.

I saw somewhere (maybe in the manual) that 30% is recommended, so that's what I dialed in and the heli flies well. I am thinking about getting some lighter paddles though.

I started today at 25% and then moved down to 15% on my last flight. It felt better but I may knock it down even more or but better flybar paddles.

30% as about right with V-Paddles.

Bent t spindle,

Are you using flybar weights with the Raptor 60 and V paddles?

Thanks

No need for flybar weights on a Raptor.

Technically due to the nonlinear characteristics of rotary output servos you need some expo (about 15 to 30%) to give a linear response between the transmitter stick and the cyclic rate. 0% really doesn’t make sense.

It depends on what you are use to. I run none, and have no problems at all. Not everyone likes the same feel in flight.

Build it, fly it, crash it. Repeat as often as needed.

I always start with 0% expo on all controlls, then set the ATV's to get the desired flip or roll rate, then add expo if the heli is too sensative at mid stick. Same with the rudder.
