This is really a "beginner" question but as it's related to a problem with my Eolo I'll post it here rather than in the beginners section.

I have a heli. setup so that the ESC & Pitch settings for min, hover & max stick are:

o ESC: 0% - n/a - 100%
o Pitch: 4 - 9 - 14 degrees

However, it won't hover at center stick.

To make it hover at center stick I guess I might try:

1) Increase the pitch settings on the heli. so hovering pitch at centre stick becomes greater then 9 degrees;

or

2) Reprogram the ESC so that 100% power is provided at less than 100% stick (& so the head speed should be higher at 9 degrees collective pitch).

Which is correct?

My guess is it's (2) - (or something else entirely.)

If it's (2) though, doesn't that mean that once I hit 100% power (at, say, 75% stick) above that my head speed will start to reduce because I'm still increasing collective but the motor power is remaining constant?

Regards, Kevin
