Ive got a raptor 50 V2 with an OS 50 sx-h in it and GY401/9254 and all S3151 servos. I am getting ready to setup the idle ups for my helicopter and am wondering if my soft dampers are good enough for simple rolls and inverted flying? I dont plan on doing tic tocs and piros just some simple stuff for right now. Another question is do I need to worry about anything else other than pitch curves and throttle curves. Right now before my idle ups Im at -3/+ 8 and Im thinking that for Idle ups I will be at -8/+8. Basically take a mirror image of my throttle curves and pitch curves and just put them on the bottom so Im the same all the way across the board. Basically Im wondering about the dampers, curves, and upgrades like lighter paddles or even cyclic throws.

If you only have to bend over once to pick it up it's a good landing.

Dampeners are fine until you start thumping on it.

Not enough pitch though, run your idle up or idle ups +-10

Really you would be better off having the top 3 points of all your curves 0, 5, 10 to make the bird feel the same in all flight modes and not jump when you flip the mode switch.

Raptor Technique has some good articles on setting your pitch and throttle curves.
