Throttle
Ok Guys, Im extremely new to this Heli flying. im much more experienced in Airplanes. But I just purchased a 4cH and a 6 CH, and I will practice with the 4 ch at first to master before i move on.

My question is on the 6 Ch Radio however. I have 2 knobs, and they are PIT supposedly. I believe the left knob has something to do wich the pictch. In order to gain lift off of the ground, do you set the throttle at a constant RPM and then just use the PIT knob to get airborne? Or do you set the PIT constant and use the throttle to get off of the ground?

Thanks! I appreciate all I can get

wish I could help, but that probably would take some 1-2 hrs time to explain how it works, maybe you can dive a bit into http://www.raptortechnique.com/ it helps a lot.

Concerning this pitch question, I don't know what heli you have. It's either fixed pitch, then control with throttle only, or it's variable pitch, in this case the throttle stick does both, pitch and throttle speed (the higher the pitch, the higher the throttle). In case you have a governor, it holds the throttle speed constant, and you control the pitch only.

Welcome to helis!

The "hover pitch" knob is only a trimming device after the heli has been properly setup. It's not used much anymore since it was designed in a era where engines were pretty inconsistent in performance from day to day.

Adjusting this would change the stick position for a hover and increase or decrease headspeed, depending on the direction of adjustment. For example, increasing hover pitch would decrease rotor rpm and lower the throttle position for a hover. Best advice is to set up the helicopter correctly, use current engines and servos and leave the hover pitch alone.

Thanks for the input guys.

Im just wondering basically, how to you guys control your "lift" when you fly a heli? (In a variable pitch setting which I think I have since its 6 channels...)
Do you use the throttle to gain altitude? or do you use the knob that adjusts pitch to make the heli rise in altitude??

Thanks!!

The "throttle" actualy controls both the throttle and the pitch.
The pitch knob is more of a trim adjustment.

You should probably read the section in your manual and read here on throttle and pitch curves.
