Hello !
Well, i finally received my piccolo plus board from
heli-hobby (big mistake), well they gave me the wrong radio
or i just dont get it.
the piccolo pro has collective pitch, they show a pitch servo
in the directions, but the piccolo plus doesn't show what channel
to plug it into, well i think the problem is they sent me the wrong
radio, a hitec laser 6.
it has v-tail mixing on ch 2 &4 and or 1 and 2 for elevon.
well throttle control is channel 4 , and the only open channel
on the board is 5 and 6.
so how do i mix throttle and pitch ?
i have a futaba heli radio, should i order a new cristal for
the board and just sell the hitec ?

you shouldnt have to mix anything if your radio is a heliradio i dont think. as long as you have it in heli mode! i have a pic pro and using a jr 8103 with seperates, i have the throttle in channel 1 and the pitch is in channel 6, and the alieron servo is channel 2 and the elevator servo is channel 3 and the gyro is in channel 4. what i did to set it up was to take off the pinion and plug a servo in and see which stick moves it i know someone with a futaba 9c and a pic pro with the piccoboard, ill look at it and see which channels he uses, hope this helps

That would be great if you can check your buddy's .
I hope i can figure this out, if i have the wrong radio i am
sure heli-hobby isnt going to do anything for me.

well what is the problem exactly? are you using the hitec or the futaba transmitter? and do you have the picoboard pro? i looked at my friends and he also has the pitch servo plugged into channel 6 but i forgot he uses a jr radio for that one. if you have the 6 channel reciever try channel 6 and see if it works.
