5 point pitch range for 9CHP
Folks,

I'm doing the figure 8 these days and I'm currently doing -2, 2, 5, 7, 9 for pitch. I'm reading on raptortechniques that it's recommended to do -4, 4, 9. I'd like to use -4, 4, 9 but the Futaba 9CHP only let me do 5 points.

I'm also planning on setting up idle-1 for -4, 3, 9; so it's great if someone can help me with the 5 point pitch curve for both settings.

Thanks in advance.

Why not go for a linear pitch curve -10 to +10 (or -9 to +9) in ALL modes and be done with it. You'll never have to re-train your thumbs again.Vegetable rights and Peace

Just set the 2nd point on the pitch curve so that the curve between the 1st and 3rd points is linear and the same for the 4th point for the curve between the 3rd and 5th points.

To make it even simpler for you, just set your pitch curve to -4,0,4,6.5,9. Your idle up will be something like -4,-.5,3,6,9. Help yourself by figuring out how I got all those figures(it's common sense).

Better yet, take Yug's advice and setup ALL flight modes with a linear -10/+10 pitch curve.

My normal mode on the 9CHP runs -2 -1 0 5 10. Throttle curve 0 25 60 75 100.

This means basically starting the heli, carrying it out at idle, throttle up to mid stick (0 pitch and 60% throttle) Then switching to idle up (i only use one of my idle up functions) so it's still 0 pitch but throttle at about 70%.

Idle up for take off and landing. Once heli is back on the deck then it's back to normal mode and throttle full stick down for back to idle.

It works best for me!
