Please list the swash type options for your radio.

Thanks,

Thanks for the attention, JKos.

The FlySky TH9X transmitter offers 5 heli swash type options.

HELI1 (is blank)

HELI2 (is a 90 degree, with a diagram that resembles scope crosshairs having two dots toatl, a dot on each end of the horizontal line.)

HELI3-1 (is a 120 degree, with a diagram showing a longitudinal orientation having one 1/3 section nose out forward and each other 1/3 as laterals.)

HELI3-2 (is a 120 degree, with 1/3 on the starboard and the other thirds on the port.)

HELI4 (is a 90 degree, with a diagram which resembles scope crosshairs having four dots total, one at each end of both the vertical and horizontal lines.

Please, advise.

The factory, also as has RCHSF, has advised that I select a single servo 90 degree swash in my tx, which will allow the FBL Helicox TG-1 3G gyro to alone do the mixing internally, while selecting the heli-120 swash option within the Helicox TG-1 program.

By my suspicion, it seems that HELI2 (above) is the best option. I have tried all possibilities here, except HELI3-2, with these same results. ... With zero throttle, tx power on, heli battery connected, 2 motor wires disconnected, right cyclic = symmetrical right swash, left cyclic = symmetrical left swash, forward cyclic = symmetrical forward swash, aft cyclic = symmetrical aft swash, ... all yaw, pitch and roll automatic gyro compensation directions = correct and symmetrical swash responses, ... left pedal/right pedal perfect, pirouette optimization perfect, ... increase of throttle initiates gradual (but increasing with throttle/collective lever position) upward swash movement with gradual but increasing tilt to starboard either toward fuselage longitudinal axis heading 045 or 090.

... And that is where, I'm stuck.

EUREKA!!!! PUZZLE SOLVED!!!!

The solution was in setting the tx swash to HELI1, the blank setting. Pictures are posted in my gallery.

Huge thanks to RR members RCHSF AND JKos for their generous attention!

Now the next problem..

With 2 of the ESC power wires disconnected from the motor, all swashplate responses are perfect from control inputs.

With all three ESC wires connected, now the Helicox TG-1 plays a musical tune.

123, 11

12345, 1, 11, 111, 1111

2, 21, 211, 2111, 21111, 22, 221, 2211, 2221 22211

Then, it repeats.

With throttle hold ON all control inputs to and responses from swash via cyclic and throttle/collective are perfect.

With throttle hold OFF all are the same, perfect, except no power from motor.

Does this mean, I should do this?

Watch at YouTube

throttle range setup

Thank you!

Yes throttle range setup, if that still does not make the motor run. reverse the throttle channel in tx. But make sure your main blades are off before testing.

Got it, RCHSF!

SUCCESS!!!!

And yes, at first the throttle servo needed reversal. Ha! Good thing the MR blades were off! Whew!

Now, I'm really scared!
