is there a way to attach or embed a file in a post so others can download it.
I would like to start a topic for sharing JR transmitter heli setup files. more and more of us are getting the Data Safe software so we could put our setup files on line for others.

That's a good idea

What do you guys think about sharing setup files?

I think the idea sucks.

It wouldn't help anyone, just make things worse, complicating things for those who don't know how to setup a helicopter or program a radio.

I'm 100% against the idea.

+1 for Dood. No two helis are created equal. Doling out a setup file to a newbie will more likely do more harm than good.

Damm

It worked wonders for me. I now have several great set up's I could use, thanks to a few good men of rr.

When I started, I had NO idea what curves were. Special set up's that work for each heli, is a great idea.

Correct, No 2 heli's are the same, but you can get a newbie extremly close, and then they figure out the finer parts later. But it's enough to get them going, that is for sure.

Prime Example right there.
People who don't know what they're doing.

Thanks to a file, still doesn't know what he's doing.

I rest my case.

It worked great for me, as it got me started, and in the ballpark, and from there, I was able to figure it out. But, starting from square one, is somtimes overwhelming for some.

You are completly taking that phrase out of "Text", and you know it.

I couldn't disagree more. You absolutely can not get extremely close to anything without physically seeing how the model is mechanically set up. Curves are one thing, but what about endpoints, throws, reversing? These are not finer points to be figured out later.

Granted, the proper way to learn, is to read, but most newbs jump right in by, buying a heli at the store, and getting home, and wanting to get started, right away.

Do you remember when you was new?

Yep, when I was new I bought a CP pro, and my first flight lasted all of about 5 seconds. After that I realized what I was getting into, slowed down, got on the sim, did a lot of reading and now I know what I'm doing - at least I like to think I have *some* clue

Point is, a bad settings file wouldn't have gotten me any closer. Reading however did.

You know, I was disagreeing with ya, but after several minutes of typing I eraised all of it.

I agree to. No 2 helis are the same, and this could raise issues for some.

It was a good ball park for myself though, as I did'nt understand what any of it meant, untill it was basically programmed for me, by you guys, and with further studying, and visually seeing it work, I fine tuned from here, or changed the set up completly.

But yes, I do agree Rotomonkey.

Sending files to newbies was not really my intent and I can see how that could screw them up.
How many newbies are going to go out and but a data safe compatible transmitter?

Here is more of what I was thinking.
there are so many opinions on expo, dual rates, pitch curves, throttle curves, switch setups and programing for different gyros and governors that I just though it would be nice to see how others have there setups. we discuss this stuff all the time and give our opinions. we also seem to have no problem telling people how we think it should be setup.

Didn't really expect this kind of response maybe I need to rethink my Idea.

From the looks of this, we all mis-understood what Talgunner was striving for.

Sorry man.

If that's the purpose, then I see no problem. other than I couldn't read it anyway

If they think it might get them in the air quicker, you might be surprised.

While your intentions are good, sharing radio files promotes bad setups and will be used by the wrong people for the wrong reason.
