Ok I have found that I do not have a throttle curve option but I do have a hovering curve which they are saying it is the same thing. What is a good starting % that I should have them set at?

I know this is a 9C but would this be a better radio for me to use? Futaba 9c and Receiver

The 9C would make your 6X look like a toy. The 9C would be a great radio and will take you a long way.

Ok thanks, I figured it would not be any worse...Trying to maybe find a trade or something to get something better then I have but since I have something that nobody wants for at least Helis I am kind of stuck but hey it is worth trying..

If you are looking to get rid of the 6X radio, try selling it on Ebay or perhaps RC Groups...there are a lot of park flyer types who are looking for inexpensive transmitters. Just don't expect to get a lot of money for it, however.

There is nothing wrong with the Futaba 9C -- it is a fine radio and has some great heli programming features.

Damper, want to trade?...Just kidding..

I am going to try the RC groups web site and see what I come up with. I wish I could find that one person that would be willing to take what I have off of my hands and do a trade. But since the radio I have is not for a heli it is hard to find but thought the gyro would have went unless it is not a popular gyro..

The 7C would also run circles around that 6X, performance-wise. It's a really decent radio and supports helis well.

IN all your searches for radios that fit your budget, make sure you pick up the HELI version of the radio. Though the transmitters usually include programming for airplanes and helis, there is usually a "slight" difference in the placement of selected switches. The upshot of that is should you ever run across an experience pilot and ask for help, if stuff like the flight mode switch, throttle hold switch, gyro gain select switch (if using the gear channel, for example) are in different places, the experienced flyer will be at somewhat a disadvantage in helping you, as he will have to stop and think about where the switches are, instead of just relying upon his normal responses.

For instance, the Futaba 7CAP (airplane radio) is the same radio as the 7CHP (heli radio), but if you take a look at the manual where the switch functions are identified, you'll find a few critical switches in different places on the TX. The internal programming is the same.

-----

To cut through the noise, I'd recommend that you buy a Spektrum DX7, and if you shop around, you'll find a DX7 setup that includes the transmitter, and AR7000 receiver, RX battery pack, and wall-wart charger. No servos. The standard DS821 servos are not recommended for heli use, so don't bother buying a radio with them. Buy better servos when you can.

Would I be able to use the Futaba FP-S148 and the Futaba S9253 Digital that I have on the heli now or will I have to go get all new ones right off of the bat? And what do you think about the servos I have now? Good? Moderate? Bad?

The servos you have now will function just fine. As I recall, you have a Nexus. The S148, though not a sexy servo by any means, will run OK in the Nexus. After all, the Nexus was designed when the S148 was one of the hot ticket items for servos! My, how times have changed.

As long as they are in good shape and the gears are good and tight (not lots of wear and slop), fly them. Worry about more expensive servos when you step up to a better, "modern" helicopter. Assuming you get this beast in the air, your best investment in the short term is to buy fuel, burn it and learn to fly.

The S9253 will also be fine, it's actually a very very good tail rotor servo. On your Nexus, it may cause some problems with that wire-driven tail rotor. Heading hold gyros and fast servos tend to react fast enough that the wire winds and unwinds like a spring, causing erratic behavior of the tail.

Just be aware of that if you end up having strange "unsolvable" tail problems. A slower analog servo might be the answer there in the long run.

You're right, I had you confused with another fellow who's been posting about his Nexus. I apologize.

The servos will suffice for the Caliber 30 until your skills progress. The 9253 will be great for this heli, or most other helis. The belt-driven tail works fine with this servo.

As your skills improve, you'd probably want to replace the S-148s with better servos. If you could find JR DS811s, they work super in the Caliber 30. Other good choices would be Futaba S9252 servos. Hitec has some servos that would work well in that heli.
