Hi to all,i done a research regarding the following question and NO precise answer so far.So it goes like that.Since i have deside to use 3/4 stick position for hover with all the benefits for the future i have
the following BIG Q.
When we set 1/2 stick=90degrees bellcranks/swash etc =0 degrees on blades what is the position of the carb and servo geometry since we want at 3/4 to hover.

Good observation! I set the pitch curve first to get the required pitch to hover at the chosen hover point (75%). I start off with a straight line, default 0,25,50,75,100 throttle curve and adjust the throttle to give the head speed I want at (75% stick)the hover point.

In reality, this will be in the region of 55 - 65% then I smooth out the other points to match.

To answer your question. With full pitch/throttle curves (0,25,50,75,100) At half stick throttle linkages are set parallel/ square, throttle half open,
Then when you set your curves your throttle will be set to your pitch. IE about 75% pitch or hover pitch will = about 50% throttle.
