Ok.. I am not sure if this is wrong or right. I am flying My JR GSR successfully at the moment, except that in my X9303 I have to reverse my pitch/cyclic curves.. Reason is the GSR has a forward elevator linkage.. which ends up making the swash be "reversed" or rotated 180 degrees.

In the swash setup of the x9303, there is no setting to rotate the swash setting. So to get the heli cyclic to act correctly I have to flip my curve so low is high and high is low...

Is this normal? I really don't see any other way around it.
Is there something I am missing? I do know some radios alow you to set say 120 deg swash and also rotate the swash... not on the X9303 though..

Seems weird to have to set my pitch/cyclic backwards, but ok.. because it works.

I hope someone can or cannot enlightmen me! My Trex 600 and trex 450 all have the elevator in the rear, so things seem normal, but this elevator in the front really through me for a loop when I was first setting up my swash. The swash is technically backwards!?

Thanks for any input.

I believe your heli is CCPM, if that is the case, it's easy to solve, just go into the swash menu, and for any function that needs to be reversed, change the value from positive to negative.

Yes it is ccpm, So you think using negative swash numbers will work?
hmmm... I guess I will give it a shot.

So regardless of where the elevator linkage is, I should never have to "flip" my pitch curves to get it to move correctly?

I didn't think it was normal to have to flip the curves, that's why I was asking in the first place.

Thanks Eury for the input.

Does anyone alse have some additional input on the X9303 and forward elevator linkages?

As Eury pointed out -- with a CCPM based machine, to reverse a function -- Elevator, Aileron, or Collective, simply go into the swash mix menu and reverse the sign of the number associated with that function. If it's +, make it -. If it's -, make it +.

For example, if Elevator is backward and you have +65 dialed in for the elevator mix, just change the number to -65. Voila, instant function reversal and nothing else needs to be changed.
