i got the dx6i and i just put on all my servos on the beam.
i set all servos to 90 before i installed them, but when i 90'd them i did'nt have the remote set to 120(if i need to set it to 120)

90 on the servo arms refers to making sure they are level.

120 ccpm is what you need for the beam and refers to how far apart the balls are spaced around the circle of the swashplate.

You set the radio for 120 ccpm

All tree should be moving.

If they are not all moving, you may not have selected the right swash type setup or you may have plugged them in the wrong channel.

if they all move but not the the correct direction, you need to play with servo resersal and swash mixing

give us more details

guitar, have you flown helis before? RC that is, i see your a blackhawk crew chief
beam is a pretty wild heli and if its your first i'd suggest a lot of time on the simulator before you even try to fly the heli. also, search the web for ccpm heli setup guides, there are a few good ones that spell out all the steps pretty clearly.

here's one

pretty wild?
beg to differ... as posted another thread.. drop head speed, and not to much throw on swash, and she tame as any other heli out there.

might even be be more tame due to no slop in system etc ;-)

guitar, give us more info if you stil have problems.. ie, where servo's plugged into and swash setup

Guitar, If I were you I would try to find a local hobby shop or another heli pilot in your area. RC helicopters are hard to learn, and almost impossible if its not set up right. If you can not find any local help, there are several books that can help and all the people on the web. Keep us updated.

ditto on trying find someone local... but find local guy that actually knows ....;-)

I learned on my own and it is possible.. just tons of reading and some more. Sym time is most critical for least crashes ;-)
