Right now I have a CC ESC and am running in Set RPM mode. In addition, my pitch is setup to +10/-2. Would the heli be a little more stabile in flight if I used equal positive/negative pitch such as +10/-10? Just curious.

Not really, depends what you mean by stable.

-2 is OK if all your doing is hovering, if your doing fast forward flying, loops or any kind of aerobatics you dont need as much as - 10 but at least -5.

Since I would say -8 is a good number I think you may aswell just set +10 and -10 for simplicity and get used to it.

I think the idea behind -2 is to only give you enough negative to hold the heli on the ground and not toppling over, and to stop you from smashing hard into the ground durin a panic when your learning to hover, it doesent take long before your confident enough to not hit full negative in a panic, if your confident enough not to hit full negative in a panic moment it does not really matter if you have 14 degrees negative pitch.

Thanks for the feedback as I will set it up as such. However, I have my pitch setup as 40-45-50-75-100. Should I set up the pitch more linear such as 0-25-50-75-100 to get the +10/-10 that I want?

Doing to +/-10 will make the collective more sensitive and harder to fly. To increase stability go to heavier paddles or flybar weights.

If you are just learning the black paddles from a Raptor 30 or 50 are the most stable and just screw on the Trex.
