Hello to all out there in heli land
I just purchased a Titan ARF The other day, and being this my first heli that I have to setup, I was wondering a few things.
First, what is the best setup as for normal throttle and pitch curves, and also the best setup for the idle and and hold curves
I'm using a Futaba 6EX radio with a fs617 receiver. This radio is not of the fancy type as most of you may know, but it is kind of confusing to me. Another thing can somebody let me know, if possible, what the settings are for each channel on this type receiver? Whether they be reversed or normal? Any suggestions would be helpful and thanks.

ok I owned a futaba t6ex 2.4 for 2 years,nice sport radio,very easy to program

as far as reversing this depends on what servos you are using,but i will add that you need to rev the throttle channel on futaba with some esc's

a basic normal throttle curve is 0-25-50-75-100

but its better to get a little more headspeed and have around 70 at center to ease transition to idle

when i started i used 0-35-70-85-100

for normal pitch use 40-45-50-75-100 this is -2 to +10 deg, if you are using +/- 10 deg

for idle up use a linear pitch curve 0-25-50-75-100 this will give +10/-10

for idle up I like 100-95-90-95-100(I use 100-97-95-97-100 for idle 2,but 6ex only has 1 idle condition),but if you are intimidated at all start low and go up as you need, you can start at 80-75-70-75-80,and increase as you get comfortable.dont be afraid to experiment,there is no such thing as a"mandatory" set up,adjust for your level and style and taste

dont let these guys tell you you need to run 100% straight across,for a beginner its TOTALLY UNNECESSARY,all you are doing is wasting mah,and stressing the battery,when you get into 3d worry about all out performance.until then long flight times and control are what you need

any more ???? just ask

Alot of good info in the above post, but dont forget to refer to your manual. If this is your first 450 use the inner settings on your flybar control levers it will help tame the heli.

have a look at the Duratrax ICE charger. I have used this outfit for several years now, and have had NO issuse at all. This outfit is very powerful, and hasmany adjustable features at a very low cost.
