I am in the process of setting up my throttle control of my WCII, but noticed that on the low side of half stick the servo travel is much greater than the high side! In the TCV section I can dial out the difference using the "low" side setting, but this reduces overall arm travel. In the THV section I can offset the centre position of the servo arm and compensate with full servo travel.

But I shouldn't have to. What I am doing wrong?

Thank you in advance for any suggestions or the solution.

Ken, try this:

1. Start by selecting a blank (freshly reset) airplane program.
2. Go to the ATV menu
3. Hold both sticks fully up and fully right while switching between AIL, ELE, THR and RUD. If the pointer below the graph moves even a little while you are switching channels you radio needs calibration.
4. Repeat step 3 but now holding both sticks fully down and fully left.
5. Finally, repeat step 3 with both sticks cantered (including throttle axis).

If you need to recalibrate the sticks you will find additional info on my website.

Also make sure the knobs and sliders on the side and front are centered. The sliders on the side will beep when the are in the middle.

Thanks, Rockcrawler, and Angelos,

It's not the sliders or knobs; I've inactivated those options for now. However, I'll try to determine if the Tx requires calibration when I get home tonight.
