I am stumbling through the setup of my iKon 2002 and the directions and computer app still leave a lot to be desired. I guess if you know how to set it they are fine, but if you don't know, there are some real gaps.

For example my problem. The servos all move in the correct direction from the transmitter, but they move in the opposite direction in response movement of the airframe. Example, I lift the tail up and the swash dives down instead of correcting upward.

There is a setup panel that says to test this. But there is no instruction to say how to reverse the cyclic sensing.

Anyone have a clue?

the unit orientation is programmed backwards

tell the software which way it is facing or turn it around 180

Thank you. I really am trying to follow the directions, but the graphic is totally backwards from my orientation.

One other thing perhaps you can help with. I am using throttle hold in CHECK MODE, and it does not work on that step. I cannot enter Swashplate Check Mode either with low throttle or throttle hold. My motor wires are disconnected. Do you have to have a live motor connection to enter Check Mode?

I unplug the ESC from RX and use an external source to do set-up
I believe check mode only happens in that one set-up page
just confirmed only happens in step 7

Thanks. I found my particular problem. Monitor showed the throttle at 15% when I had it set in throttle curve at 0%. So I lowered it in the throttle curve to -15% and all is well now.

I am very close now to a setup ready to test.

Oh yea, the bluetooth version I paid $40 extra for doesn't work with iPhone...no app in the store. How special is that?
