now i need help with my tx OPTIC 6. I am new to this i used the eclipse setup from radd, however it just goes as far as setting up the mix. Can anyone help with the rest i dont know what this stuff means expo, d/r, s.trm, epa, swah, rvmx,ptcv, thcv, r-t, t cut. i need some possible setups for these things.Also my right stick on the tx seems to control throttle.please can anyone help

for more definitions click here

your "right" stick throtle indicates you have a MOD 1 transmitter...MOD 2 being the opposite and used here in the states.

Best of luck!

edited..heres a quick help

expo = exponential
d/r = dual rate
s.trm = sub trim
epa = end point adjustment
swah = swash selection for sure
rvmx = revolution mixing
ptcv = pitch curve
thcv = throtle curve
r-t = ?
t cut = throtle cut off.

thanks

i pretty much have the setup down except.yes my swash moves freely in all directions. once i add throttle into the mix the elevator tips forward which i can adjust to a point where it is not maxed out but can not get the blades to tilt back.i have tried moving the the servo arm and adjusting the trim...any suggestions

you lost me on the part where the blades dont tilt back.

when applying throtle ALL cyclic servos should travel EQUALLY meaning your swash should stay level during this transition...while the blades pitch increases as well...thus creating lift.

it definitely has be a radio set up issue.

dont know your radio programming in particular but I would start fresh again just to be on the safe side...by this I mean if your radio has more than one model capacity...use the other one or reset the one your using now.

make sure all cyclic servos have same setup...the only need to adjust "trim" is for centering them initially...adjusting the pitch curve is what will limits its travel accordingly.

take your time and be patient as you only get one chance to get it right...unlike planes that glide...helis fall like bricks.

Best of luck!
