Just getting into acro and 3D so I have a question regarding suitable values for collective and cyclic pitch.

I'm thinking about +/- 10deg for cyclic and +/- 5 deg for cyclic

Sound about right?

Will be flying a flybarred logo 400 (progressing to v-bar when I have the cash)

Cheers, Paul

/- 9 or 10 for collective is good.
I would shoot for +/- 6 to 7 for cyclic to get roll rate where you need it.
You can add a little expo on the cyclic to keep it softer around the center.

You do not want situation here you NEED the darn thing to roll or flip faster and it will not

I personally have to have at least 8 degrees. Try setting up dual rates and see how it flies with 7 vs 8.
