Right out of the eclipse manual.

Setting Exponentials
1. Enter the programming
mode by pressing the two
Edit Up Down keys (the
two keys on the far left) at
the same time.
Press either Edit Up Down key until the EXP menu
appears, as shown.
2. To set exponential for channel 1, move the arrow by
pressing the Cursor Right or Left keys repeatedly until
the arrow is under or over the channel number you want.
Now switch the appropriate switch up or down, noticing
the position of the arrow. You can set two values of exponential,
one for each switch position. By pressing the
Data +Increase or -Decrease keys, you can add or subtract
from the numerical value displayed. Note that you
may pick a value anywhere from -100% to +100%.
If you quickly want to get back to the default 0%, press
the Active/Inhibit (Clear) key. You should understand
that you won't see changes in your model's servo
response unless you move the sticks. To get a feel for
how exponential works, just hold partial stick and switch
the Expo on and off (one side of the switch should be set
to zero expo). You'll see how it affects the servo travel.
3. The values you set for exponential are highly dependent
on both the model and pilot's preference. We normally
recommend a start value of about -10% to -20%, and
many test flights, slowly increasing the number until
things are "right". Obviously this depends on the pilot
and model so go ahead and fly with Expo programmed on
one of the flight condition switches so it can be turned on
and off during flight. Or don't use it at all if you don't like
it - it's not for everyone.
4. Repeat this procedure for the expo settings on the
other remaining channels .
5. Return to the regular operating mode by pressing the
two Edit Up / Down keys simultaneously.

It doesn't matter if it is ccpm or not. You set expo on ch1 for ail, ch2 for elev, and ch4 for rudder.

I have this radio for serveral birds, ccpm and not

set the expo to -30% not +30% for ch 1 and 2

There is also a swash menu, choose this to limit the swash throws for cyclic on ch1 and ch2

The voices in my head can beat up the voices in your head.
