What is the point in having a flat spot, if you dont want the heli to go up or down, then dont move the collective. If the helicopter has a governor, and you have a flatspot, then its basically creating a deadspot in your sticks travel..

Im not quite sure what the theory behind a flat spot is...

For myself, I dont have a flat spot, just a less than linear area around center.

Example, my pitch curve, becouse I am not subtle

0%
20%
40%
50% Center Stick
60%
80%
100%

Otherwise, I agree if there is a govenor and your pitch curve was
0%
xx
50%
50%
50%
xx
100%

Then there is a dead spot

The voices in my head can beat up the voices in your head.

If flying a heli was that easy. We're not talking about a sim model, here Some of us like to make a heli stay in the same spot, in all conditions. I guess if I just stop moving the sticks, it will work?

Maybe now with this advice, I can finally move up to F3C and take down Wayne Mann

Just messing around,

You move the sticks to move functions of the heli, but if you dont want to move the function, then why move the stick, all a flatspot is doing is allowing you to move your collective without the collective on the heli moving... whichs seems like an odd concept to me.

OK, we aren't talking about a completely flat spot. You're being too literal.

Have you never used expo on cyclic before? It's the same concept, except on the collective near the hovering point.

"Quote" u move the sticks to move functions of the heli, but if you dont want to move the function, then why move the stick,

Obviously the discussion Is above your level of understanding and experience ,

Read the posts.

I was better explaining my first post, when the OP said flat spot, i did not realize he ment expo, it was a miss-communication

I dont see you contributing?

it's your heli, what do you want ??,,
the whole idea of 3 modes is to have 3 different curves for 3 different types of flying, IF THAT IS WHAT YOU WANT !!!!,,

you will find 3Ding guys and others will use a Straight Curve,, "again" what do you want ??,,

AND you will find a lot of guys wont mess with a S-Curve because they just don't want to take the time to set it up, the Straight Curve is simple to set up !!

the S-curve will give you a little smoother throttle IF that is what you want,,

I use 3 different curves because I like flying 3 differt ways,,
in Normal Mode I like hovering 2 inches off the grass (it's challenging and it's cool to do so), so for that I like a S-curve in Normal Mode for a smoother throttle, and again in Idle Up 1 for just zipping around fast looping and rolling I like to be very very smooth, the smoother the better,, but I have a friend that tells me those Curves are wrong, how can they be wrong IF THAT IS what I want ???

in Idle-Up 2 I have a Straight Curve,,

yes I use governors..
