Hi there, I'm getting a 9C Super Series radio, and was just wanting to know people's setting's for their T-Rex with these.....

I have been out of the hobby a wee while, and can't really remember how to do it ;-)

Any help would be great..

Thanks

I use an "old" 9CH on my T-Rex. What exactly do you need to know?

It's easy to find an excuse to do wrong. Hard is not to find an excuse to do right.

Ok, now that's a trick question, cause I bearly remember how to do the setup's.

Main thing would be throttle and pitch curves I think, also this is my first "real" electric heli.. so Im not sure how to do all the electric setup's.

There is enough to write a book! The instructions below apply only for the T-REX...

In a nutshell:
1 - On the Parameter(basic) menu reset the setup to start a fresh model
2 - On the same menu choose Heli (SWH1) and PPM or PCM depending on your receiver.
3- Make sure all servos move on the right direction. Let me know if you can't figure this one out. Use the Reverse (basic) menu.
4- From now on all setup with the stick at mid position (0 degrees)
5- SubTrim your servos so the arms are 90 degrees with the links. On the T-Rex just make the arms parallel to their cases. Try not to put more than 40% subtrim in any case. Try to pick the arm that sits closer to neutral to start with. Use the Subtrim (basic) menu.
6- Choose the closest arm length that will give you 100% endpoints. Fine tune the setup so there is no binding with the Endpoint (basic) menu. Do not add Endpoint over 100% and Subtrim over 40% on the same channel. Use the same value for both ends or within 5%.
7- Add from 20 to 35% exponential on Aileron and Elevator using the D/R Exp (basic) menu. On the menu use negative numbers for EXP and leave DR at 100%. I use -35% on Normal and -20% on Idle up1 (the T-Rex is VERY responsive to cyclic input)
8- Inhibit Throttle Cut at THR-CUT (basic) menu.
9- On the Revo (Adv) menu disable the function if you are using a heading hold gyro. If not just leave it as is. You'll need to calibrate the curve at the field.
10- On Thr-Curve (Adv) Norm curve put 0, 45, 75, 90, 100 (I hover at 3/4) Ball park figures...
11- Also on Thr-Curve (Adv) change the curve to Idle1 and enable the mix (On or Off). Change the curve points to 100, 85, 70, 85, 100 (you will need to tweak this depending on your mechanical setup and your gear).
12- On Gyro Sens (Adv) Change SW to "Cond" and set your gyro gains for Norm, Idle1 and Hold depending on your gyro. If you are using a Futaba HH gyro set Mode to GY and use AVC 65% to start with.
13- On HOV-THR (Adv) set Mix to INH
14- On HOV-PIT (Adv) set Mix to INH
15- On THR-Hold (Adv) set MIX to enabled (On or OFF), position to 0%, RUD -OFFSET MIX to INHIBIT (you can turn that on later, but I don't suppose you will be doing autos just now)
16- On OFFSET (Adv) Enable MIX (On or OFF)

I use 0, 25, 50, 75 100 on all my pitch curves except Norm where I use 32, 40, 50, 75, 100.

The top and bottom end pitch values will be given by the mechanical setup, not by the radio.

Please seek the advice of an experienced pilot.

I hope this helps.

Jack

Jackheli Great Response
I didnt ask the question but you just explained what took me a while to pick up. I run the same settings except my throttle curve is at 0-63-83.5-83.5-83.5. Im running the align 2500 with TP 2100 3 cell. Im averaging 12-14 min. Battery is barely warm. Motor burns your fingers on the other hand. I paid $40 for the motor. It doesnt seem to be struggling it just runs hot.

I guess it also depends on your mechanical setup: Where you have your max pitch at.

I am running the Align 2800kv on 1500mAH. I get 8 Minutes of 3D (which is as much as I can handle anyway with this small heli...).

I made some adjustments to the pitch and now the motor is under 180' after a 13 min flight battery is barely warm. I dont have a pitch gauge its all done using the force luke.

Jackheli,
This is a good information for me. I'll get 9C Supper by tomorrow and will try to setup by using your info as a guild line.

These are all starting figures. Even with the same exact gear the numbers could change.

Also don't take my setup as casted in stone. I may have missed something.

By the way, I am still working on mine numbers since I only recently managed to get the mechanical setup to be level on 0 degrees and allowing +/- 10 at the ends.
