Caliber 30 correct setup for loops,stall turns
I was wondering whitch set up (pitch - trottle relasionship) is the correct to do loops,stall turns.
I have in Normal mode:
Throttle 1=15%, 2=30%, 3=55%, 4=70%, 5=90%
Pitch 1=0, 2=2, 3=4, 4=6, 5=8 degres.
and in Idle up 1 i have
Throtle 1=60%, 2=30%, 3=50%, 4=60%, 5=90%
Pitch 1=-3, 2=0, 3=3, 4=6, 5=9 degres.
Whitch is the best setup i can do??

Well, there is no "correct" setup. Each person sets up their heli as they like it, but here's what I would recommend:

First, in normal mode, make sure that you've got some negative pitch at the bottom end of the stick. Without it, you can get in trouble trying to land on a windy day. -2 or -3 degrees would be enough for this.

As for the idle-up mode, I'd recommend you having -9 at the bottom, and +9 degrees at the top.
Also, the throttle should be something like this (assuming you have an OS 32SX-H in your C30):
1=100%, 2=82%, 3=65%, 4=82%, 5=100%

If you have a pitch-curve like this:
1=-9, 2=-4.5, 3=0, 4=4.5, 5=9 degrees

An idle-up setup like this will make your heli behave the same upside down as it does right-side-up.

I think that -9 is too much negative for loops & s/turns. I will check my setup & report back, but I have always found that (for loops & s/turns) it is better to have too little negative pitch than too much; esp if you are still learning

I got -10 0 +10 on a Rappy 50 loops rolls and stall turns great if you dont have plenty of -ve pitch you got nothing to hold the heli up when inverted!

Look in your Caliber 30 manual for the table that suggests proper pitch setups for different flight modes.

Use those as a starting point, and adjust them to fit your skills and style. They are actually a very good reference point to start with.

As for throttle curves, the "normal" curve is a simple linear 0 to 100 % curve. The "3D" throttle would be something like 100 75 100 and you can fill in the missing two points if you have a 5-point system.

For idle up 1, a throttle curve something on the order of 45 75 100 works well as a starting point (again, fill in the missing points with a 5 point system, and adjust to match the motor, the pitch, and your style.

But first, make sure your heli has Zero degrees pitch at center stick using a linear pitch curve as the starting point. That should get you +/-11 degrees easily if you need it and your motor can handle it. I don't believe you told us what motor you're using. OS 32 or 37 (or something else).

If a 32, you'll max out at about +/-9 degrees, a 37 can push +/-10 and maybe +/-11 degrees.

Proper setup can be found here:

my two long posts. Follow them, you'll have a great flying Caliber.

OK just been flying (looping) my Caliber 30...

I have -4 deg at bottom stick in Idle up 1 (were I do loops & s/turns), Often I did not even get close to bottom stick...
Look in your Caliber 30 manual for the table that suggests proper pitch setups for different flight modes.
The Manual suggests -3 at bottom stick, That would certainly be a good place to start
