If the new guy starts right off the batt with full negative, there is no learning curve.

At my local flying field, they teach the newbies to fly with a linear 0,25,50,75,100 curve from day one just for that reason.

Both ways work....many ways work....I just think some are more optimal.

I would NEVER start a new guy off with full negative. But thats just me and i dont think he would have a heli long. And also i was talking about the rates not the curve..

Why? Why do you think he wouldn't have a heli long? If from day one he is taught to fly with full negative, why would he do anything different...he doesn't know anything different!

Yep, I have seen that....and it was always because they were taught to fly with little to no negative! Usually they started on a RTF micro heli where the radio couldn't be programmed.....I've been there! Trust me...they guys that we teach from day one to fly with full negative...do NOT slam the collective down when they panic....they learn to hit throttle hold...from day one.

Of course we don't have to agree...! LOL, that's what a forum discussion is all about...different ideas.....

Dual Rates should be set all the same in all modes so you have full Swash Deflection without binding the Swash, this gives full control of the Swash and Head at all times,,

Expo does not change Servo End Points !!! so no matter how much Expo you use you still have full control over the Servo's travel,,

if you want 2 different rates you should use 2 different Expo rates this way you have full control of the swash,,

curves simply put,,,
the reason why our Tx have 3 different modes IS so we can have 3 different curves IF we want,,,, "want" is the key word here, what do you want them set at !!

I know guys that have flown for over 20 years with NO Expo that now use 40, 50 %,, and I know guys that have flown 30 years that have used Expo since it was introduced into the hobby,, and I know guys that have been flying 30 years that use 3 different curves,,

as a newbie I started out without Expo, I quickly went to 25%, I now use a 0% rate and a 20% rate,, yes my helis fly smoother on 20% rate ,, my Dual Rates are all set the same,,

I think if you ask a newbie most will say they want to learn with some Expo,, I recommend it but I think 40, 50% or more is to much..
