Reverse whatever channels are necessary out of 1, 2, and 6 to get all three moving the same way for collective. Then roll cyclic should work, and so should fore/aft. If the direction of an entire function such as collective, roll, or fore/aft is reversed do not reverse servos, change the swash value from a + to -. That will change the direction of the entire function.

Servo locations...

First hook up the elevator servo. If you have to plug in one servo at a time until you find which plug in on the Rx is the elevator, that's what you'll need to do. Then find the aileron servo and then the pitch servo. The aileron servo will move the swash left and right as will the pitch servo. The Pitch servo is always AUX1 or PITCH on a Rx (at least on the JR's it is). If you really have to know, go to the Futaba web site and see if they have any Rx plug identification pics or a manual on one of their Rx's. Hitec may have info about their Rx's on their web site too. I have all that info here, but like all my stuff, "IT's" here somewhere, but not at hand at the moment. The AFR (or Swash) menu is the last thing you need to adjust. Once the servos are in place then go to the AFR menu and make sure that you have the swash moving in the right direction. When you move the throttle/collective stick away from you make sure the blades go positive and vice versa. If they don't then reverse all the AFR numbers to the opposite of what they are now. On my Tiger 50 that has CCPM I've got the ailerons at +65, elevator at +65 and the pitch at +80. The numbers on the AFR menu will make the servos move more or less according to the number that's set on the menu for each control. Most of the time the aileron and the elevator will be the same (or at least close) and the pitch setting can be as much as 100% to move the collective up and down for the range of pitch you'll need. Use as much as needed to get the pitch where ever it needs to be for the heli to fly. Are you setting this up for 3D? If so make stunt1 zero degrees at half stick and 5 degrees at 3/4's stick. I'll assume you know what I mean here.

Later...

Turner0022...

At this point you're really going to need someone that's familiar with the Futaba radio to help you. If things are still not working quite right then there is something that I'm missing because I'm unfamiliar with the Futaba AFR setup. Hopefully some with that info will chime in here and help out.

ok i think i have every thing right ... i have one more question ..... when i tilt the swash left should only the aileron servo move, when i tilt right should only the elivator servo move , when i tilt forward should only the pitch servo move? everthing moves in the right direction allthough when i tilt left ail and pitch move , is that the norm ? is the servo operation the same on all small coll pitch helis ?
