Control Sensitivity?
I am just starting to fly my OutDo 600 and so far so good. I flew a slightly smaller r/c helicopter about 10 years ago so I am not a rank beginner. I am using the RealFlight G3 to get my thumbs back in practice. The helicopter is too sensitive to control inputs. I will have it in a decent hover and the slighest increase in throttle sends it up like a rocket! Then I try to bring it down again and from then on I might as well be playing with a yo-yo as flying the OutDo! Is there a way to decrease the sensitivity of the collective/throttle so that it takes more throw of the stick to get it to climb or descend? In fact, at this stage of the game I would be just as happy if full throttle resulted in not much more than a hover, certainly the bottle-rocket response I have now!

Thanks a million.

Yes, you can make your heli less responsive by having a radio that you can manipulate the pitch and throttle settings.

Try decreasing your maximum pitch slightly, do this in small increments so you don't lose the ability to stop the heli from a fast drop.

re: lose the ability to stop the heli from a fast drop
That's part of the problem, not only does it go up FAST, it comes down FAST and that's where I get into the yo-yo manuever sysdrome. I am thinking that if I can limit its ability to climb fast that I will be able to keep it nearer the ground and not have to be as concerned about quick drops. It might well be that this is just the nature of the beast and solution is going to be in my psychomotor skills and neuropathways rather than in the helicopter or the radio. But I would certainly like to be able to gain any advantage I can early on in this re-learning process!

Intuition tells me that less pitch change with increased throttle will be the combo I am looking for, does that sound right?

Really its just more practice and get those neuropath highways flowing mate.

Do you know what pitch settings you are running?

Have you checked what your pitches are at, Low, Hover, High? If you are using a computer radio you can easily limit your max and min pitches in essence softening the middle, if your using a non computer radio you could probably move the arm on you collective one hole in on the servo wheel, limiting travel. Either way it would be a good idea to have a pitch gauge to measure.Support your local hobby shop
