Well, Im way passed the hover, FFF and the occasional loops. Im ready to setup my idle up 1 for basic aerobatics... (no hard 3D just yet) and I need to know how to assign a switch to be the "idle up 1 or 2"

How would these curves work out for a R60?
Throttle Curve: 100, 70, 60, 70,100
Pitch Curve :-9, 0, +9

you dont 'assign' a switch. you have to use the flight mode switch
(upper deck front left).

you might have to enable id1 and id2 though (they may well be
INH'd)

dunno

I know some switches are in a different position on the aero version but
the software is ultimately the same.

I use the JR 8103A radio and moved the switches around so that they are located same as the heli version - soldering required.

ID1 and ID2 can be found at the Pitch and Throttle curve settings. Press "SELECT" button to move from Norm to St-1,St-2 and Hold. When the position of the switch is on, it flashes (eg. Norm)

When you scroll through the pitch and throttle curve menus you'll see them listed as NORM, ST1, ST2. Once you get to the throttle curve menu, you can scroll through the three different mode settings with the SELECT button.

NORM is usually associated with hovering, ST1 can be set up for loops, rolls, mild 3D, ST2 is usually associated with the big time 3D stuff.

All of the modes allow you to tweak 5-point curves.

The 3 way switch for Norm, St1 and St2 is located (second switch from left) above the throttle stick.

Don't be bothered by the thought of the 3/4 stick hovering. Just focus hovering the heli and you won't even realize you are hovering at 3/4 stick.
Your throttle in the middle at 60 is a bit too high. Start at 45% (0 pitch) and maybe 65% to hover to ease your 3/4 stick hover.
Have fun!

so my throttle should be 100, 60, 45, 60, 100 ? i did think it was a little high too... i'll work with these numbers and tweak from there!

thanks a bunch!

Now that you are set to use St1 and St2, it is very important that you check your 3 way switch to be in the NORMAL mode before starting the heli - you can get whacked or burn the clutch if it is on St1 or St2.

Set up a throttle hold setting for your motor while you're at it so that you can keep the engine at idle while you start it and carry it to the flight line.
