Hello,

Who uses the hover pitch knob on the Tx? Do you use it to help adjust for hover at half throttle stick?

Thanks
Cassat

Most of us inhibit or disable the function. Same with hover throttle. Also it only effects the mid pitch and throttle point so if you hover at 3/4 stick like most of the 3D guys its useless anyways.

I don't use it, but I expect this feature is mainly used by scale flyers.

H /P + T/P trim knob's
I enjoy the use of mine alot, usually a click either way from center you find a sweet spot. They actually effect and correspond to each others posistion as out lined in Ray's. Depending on the day's temperature and humidity it will allow to you finds a hand off posistion. Instead of chasing needles for engine you just dial + 1 or -1 or up carb or down carb a bit.

The flippers on the sides of the radio are the ones I'm yet to determine

barracudahockey is right; unless your hover pitch/throttle are at mid-stick then these knobs are best disabled. Of my three helis only my nexus was setup for midstick hover. And the knobs were useful then. For my Raptor and Evo 50s the knobs are used for small governor adjustments.

Mid Stick
Yes, I am using mid stick hover and a Nexus also. That is why I asked the question.

Thanks

I have my heli set for hover at mid-stick. I don't fly 3D and seem to have better rudder control using mid-stick hover. I use the hover pitch paddle on the left side of my 9C. I love it. I have a governor so don't use the hover throttle. I like it now but who knows how it will be once I am flying at a more intermediate level.

I hover at mid stick and have this function enabled. It allows me to tailor the head speed and pitch while in the hover to allow for climatic changes. Once I have established the required head speed at the mid stick position i land and adjust the pitch and throttle curves accordingly so that i can return the dials to the centre position. This way, when i swap between my helis, I just make sure the dials are centralised.
I suppose its just a case of using a function because its there.
If I was asked do I actually need it I reckon the answer is a resounding NO...
Hope this helps
