Hi every body,
I am new in the nitro class, i have a Xtreme 50 with dx7 and here is my problem

For now, I use 50 % rudder stick to control 100% the tail slider, what can I do to use 100% rudder stick to control 100% the tail slider?

Just tell me some guidelines to solve that would be appreciate!

sorry for my english!

do you have a gyro?

you want your radio set to 100% and adjust the limit of the slider in the gyro so there is no binding in the linkage.

Move your rudder linkage in on the servo horn and/or decrease the gyro's limits.

Uhhh.. If your gyro is in heading hold mode, and the slider moves to the end without binding when you give 50% stick, you don't have a problem.

Remember the gyro is what's telling the servo what to do when you put it in HH mode, so this could well be completely normal behavior for your gyro.

If you go to 100% rudder stick, and hear the servo buzzing away when it hits the end, then yes, change the endpoints on your gyro.

If you're flying in rate mode, then just forget everything I just said.

If it can't hover, it ain't worth flying.
