Might be able to help you in a couple days...I'm replacing my JR 662 transmitter with an 8103, and I've got two Calibers to set up. Until then, hope you get some posters who can help both of us!

Labby -- it's pretty simple after all. Just got finished setting up one of my two Calibers so I can wean it off my old JR 662 TX and use the new 8103 TX.

You've found out how to enable the CCPM mode...the three servo, 120 degree setting.

Once you've enabled the 3 servo/120 degree CCPM mode (you did this by pressing both the UP and DOWN buttons while turning power on -- "System Setup Mode"), you then need to set up the actual mix values in the FUNCTION setup mode.
(This is the mode you get when you turn the TX on and THEN press the UP and DOWN buttons simultaneously).

When you do this, you'll get a menu of options -- things like dual rates, travel adjust, gyro setting...and one of the menu options will be SWASH MIX.

Select the Swash Mix function, the display will show "Swash Mix" in brackets in the upper left corner, "3 servos" and "120*" on the left center of the screen.

On the right half of the screen, you'll see "AILE 60%", "ELEV 60%" and "PIT. 60%". The arrow cursor will be pointing at one of these three entries (probably "AILE").

Use the +/- keys to set each of these three values per your Caliber 30 manual:

AILE ---> -65%
ELEV ---> -65%
PIT. ---> +65%

In my Caliber, the servo directions are set up as follows:

Aileron ---> Normal
Elevator ---> Normal
Throttle ---> Reverse
Rudder ---> Normal
Pitch ---> Reverse

Then use your pitch gauge and the PITCH curve menu options to set up the individual pitch curves by adjusting the individual set points for L, 1, 2, 3, H. (I have tentatively set only three point curves, inhibiting the "1" and "3" settings for each mode).

Set your throttle curves, set up your gyro and you should be good to go.

Hope this helps.

Dave

If you've got the pushrods on your servos coming off the proper side of the servo as shown in the C30 manual, you've got the servo direction set per the C30 manual, and set the mixes as I described above -- everything should go the correct direction.

Make sure you've got it set up with AILE at -65, ELEV at -65, and PIT at +65 -- should work.

Those pluses and minuses gotta be set right or the associated movement will be wrong.

Pitch range...

I have been flying my Caliber with a borrowed RD6000. I just got my 8103 and LOVE it, but.... With the same servo arms and linkages I only get about +10 and -5 maximum pitch range. Any suggestions other then going out another hole on the arms?

Thanks!

In the Swashplate settings your pitch should be near 70 or so to get the pitch range you need. Make sure you are not binding the system at the ends when adding full cyclic..

I get all the pitch range I need with the settings at 65 -- about +12 and -10, no problem.

Thanks...I got it all worked out. Anybody else do an engine-cut mix using the #3 mix and the gear lever? I hate messing with the trim to cut the engine
