How do you adjust your cyclic pitch in TRex?

I haven't deal with a eCCPM heli before so I am a little confused.
In my Raptors I was setting blades pitch at zero degrees and I was adjusting the cyclic pitch from the ATV's.

But if I will do that with eCCPM this will upset the rest of my settings. Can you please guide me on how you setup your cyclic pitch on eCCPM?

Also I noticed something else yesterday. I adjusted my swash linkages so when in midstick I have zero pitch in my blades and the washout arms are parallel. This gives me +/- 13 degrees at idle up with a perfect straight curve 0,50,100 and my ATV's at 100%. In order to get this I had to shorten a little the swash linkages (by 3 turns) than the suggested length in the manual. But when I am in full negative (stick full down) when I give full cyclic (both aileron and elevator) the swash fouls a little on the upper bearing block. I understand that it's very rare if not impossible to give this command while flying in real but is this normal?

ya, what he said... I think.

I have no idea what he wrote, but you adjust the cyclic throws on a CCPM machine in the radio under the swash menu. I am a JR guy, so if you are flying Futaba things will probably be different.

Go into your Swash menu and increase the aileron and elevator percents. Make the numbers farther from zero, so if it is -60 make it -70, or if it is +60 make it +70.

Hopefully that makes sense. By changing that way it wont change the travel for your collective, only the cyclic. And a little binding at the extreme collective and cyclic is normal. Just be aware of it and don't push in the corners at max collective.

Yeap sorry for the greeks.

I know doesn't sound good when writting in our mother language. He just proposed to ask a common friend that already have eCCPM helis.

JR guy here as well so thanks for the input. So swash mix menu is the trick here. Thanks for the confirmation on binding on the extremes as well.

No problem.

Also, in my post I assumed that you wanted to increase your cyclic throws.

Obviously if you want to decrease them, then you would make your aileron and elevator percents closer to zero.

I think I am around 65% for both aileron and elevator and I have about 7.5 degress of cyclic pitch.

ya sotiris

did u get the info you were looking for? first measure the degree's of cyclic pitch your are running for elevator/aileron! If its not enough raise the swash percentage in your radio for either elevator or aileron, if its to much lower the percentage. Also I noticed that anything over +-12 Collective 8 cyclic I get minor binding at full extreme! I fly DX7 and and my swash mix menu is -67% aileron,-67% elevator and +50% pitch...
hope this helps
