Went out to the field to setup my Pantara with a YS-61ST engine (first nitro for me), things went so well I decided to bring her up to hover.

From the ground to 6', solid as a rock! The Pantera just works!

Then I started getting a feel for expo. I've not used expo in the past. Sticks are really mushy but I'll get used to it.

Still need to fine tune the motor for idle and high end. I had left the directions at home hehe...

I'm really not sure why expo. So many folks were suggesting to use it I decided to try it. I flew the 450SE without it. I think a little expo might be nice to smooth out the sticks. I recall when I first started you could see my hands shaking by watching the 450 .

I'm just amazed I didn't have to adjust anything to get the pantera level. I'm guessing that's common in the .50 class.

If it feels mushy for you then why use expo? Majority of people use expo but it all comes down to personal preference. I can be quite smooth without expo

FWIW - I don't use expo on my Rappy 30, or my KDS 450 helis - all down to personal preference and what you learned with I guess.

However, if you think the sticks feel mushy then definitely give it a go with expo dialled out.

When I started flying a was not familiar with expo. I had heard of it, but was not 100% sure about it. So, I learned without it and flying with it now feels strange. It really is personal preference. Adjust your settings to what feels right. If its mushy, back the expo off some or all of it.

Welcome to the world of nitro. Great to hear the Pantera flew well. Happy flying!
