Can anyone give me a starting point for the settings for a trex 500 on a Spektrum DX6i? Please.

Nope, there's a process of setting up a helicopter you need to learn. Just blindly copying settings isn't going to do you any good at all. Every helicopter is different. The length of each linkage in the head down to 1mm will make a big difference in your settings. The gyro, and the way you mounted it will change settings as well, as with the length of the pushrod on the tail. You can have the exact same equipment as another guy, and have a completely different radio setup.

Go have a look at some of the setup vids over at HF, and better still find somebody local who can help you out. If you don't know any heli guys, find a local flying field and ask for help. Anyone out there will be all to happy to give you a hand. Failing that, go see if there's a heli guy working at your LHS.

Good luck.

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

There are a ton of variables that will make a programmed set up work for one, but not another.

Specifics like throttle and pitch curve can translate, but most settings wouldn't unless the geometry of the set up was exact.
