Just been setting my heli up again , its got the 25amp align esc and align 400 motor pitch +10 - 6 and its standard .
I originally had the 13t pinion on it was hovering around my hose lovely just a little glitch now and again.
I thought after reading other posts about battery consumption I would try the 11 tooth .
The head speed is alot lower and seems nice but it glitches alot more and drops, also the battery and motor seem a little hotter.
Im also not yet in 3d but want my tranny stick postions ready , it it right to be hovering at 3/4 stick ?? and middle 0 pitch etc so its got the same scale on the sticks , it was hovering at around 1/2 stick on the 13 tooth pinion thats how I noticed the difference .
Shall I refit the 13 t and alter the sticks or is 3/4 hovering correct ??

Thanks
Steven

From the pros
I learned from the pros that you should ignore The T-Rex setup in the book. Set it up at -10 0 +10 in idle up one. Duplicate the top halve of this curve in normal. Set the bottom halve of the normal curve to give you 0 -3 or what ever you like. I like to smoothe out the curve from low to point 4 on the normal curve. This allows me to hover much smoother and make landings feather light.

I used to hover at halve throttle. If you do you will get large jumps when you click the idle up one switch. For instance going from idle up 1 to normal, the heli will jump UP 20 feet. Guess what happens when you go from idle 1 to normal.

Learning at halve throttle made it difficult for me to go to 3/4 throttle hover. I think you should go to 3/4 throttle as soon as you get over your first few flights. If you can do it it will make the transition easier.

Yes ive not got a problem flying at 3/4 throttle , I will put the 13 tooth pinion back and reset the servos to get 3/4 stick at hover.

Cheers Steven

i personaly dont understand why people tell beginners to setup any heli to hover at half stick. i learned at 3/4 from the monment i ever picked up a controller. i dont see it being any easier at 1/2. it is much easier to set up a heli to be 0 at midstick and even out all the servo horns to 90 degree angles, and set the rest of your 5 point pitch curves.
