I have the 10c and before this the 9C. I am use to the 5 point curve and am having a problem with the 7 point curve. The manual is useless and tells you to put mid stick at 5 degrees. Everybody knows that mid stick in normal and idle up is always 0 degrees of pitch and you hover around three quarter stick. This is how the pros do it and how I have with the 9c but need to ask for help from someone that has the 10C radio. The manual is very frustrating for the basics. Again I want to be a mid stick and o degrees of pitch. Do I still just do the same liner lines in the radio? Like on the throttle in normal mode it is, 0, 25, 50, 75, 100. How do I do this and the pitch in the 10c with 7 point curves? Please help, really need it. Thanks in advance for anyone who answers with help!!

if you are doing a 3d setup then yes 0 deg is at 50% on point 4 (1\2 stick). your points will be 0,17,34,50,66,84,100 for a linear setup.
Everybody knows that mid stick in normal and idle up is always 0 degrees of pitch and you hover around three quarter stick.
this is true for a 3d setup but not everybody sets their helis up for 3d. I fly fai and i only use a 16-18 deg pitch range so for me 50% at 1\2 stick is about 2 deg+ but my center point is raised to about 65% ( 4 1\2-5 degs) because i hover at 1\2 stick always in normal and slightly above in Idle up because i use a pure linear curve for idle ups.

The manuals are giving you "examples" for the most part to help you try to understand how the radio works. they are not the only way to do setup so dont be furstrated by this just use this as a part of the learining curve.

If you were comfortable with the 9 then it wont take long to get the same way with the 10. I used to fly a 9z. it had 13 points and i loved it. i fly a 12z now and will still be learning how to use it for many years to come. I love it!!!! just enjoy it!

Hope this helps

You dont have to use all 7 points... You can disable 2 of the extra points and just use 5 points just like your 9C. If you move the cursor to say point 2 and STK then push and hold the button for 1 sec it will disable that point. Then change point 3 OUT to 50% and STK to 25% and voila - it will show the same curve as before.....

This also happens when you transfer a model from say a 9C to the 10C because the 9C only has 5 point curves.

If you skip me I can't play!

The more points the better you can fine tune it.Some people just want to fly and don't care if the heli is as smooth as silk. If your not using a gov then it helps to have alot of points.
