I can't get my rotors to zero in idle-up at mid stick, but in normal flight mode i get the pitch that i'm looking for (i have -2 at 0throttle, 6 at mid stick and 12 at full) what am i doing wrong? is it a mechanical adjustment or is it in the radio. thanks

Here are my T & P curves from my radio.
P: normal, 25, 30, 55, 70, 80 idle-up, 0,25,50,75,100
T: normal, 0,40,72,85, 100(from manual) idle-up,100,85,75,85,100
swash mix: ail +60, elv -60, pitch +65

thanks

what you need to do is setup your head on a flight mode that has a linear pitch curve. once you have the blades at 0 pitch at mid stick on a linear curve make sure that you are getting the same amount of pitch in both directions. if it is even and not what you want adjust your swash mix to fix it. then check your cyclic pitch till it is where you want it.

personally i recommend leaving the pitch curves linear in all 3 flight modes for this exact reason and it will allow you to bleed off head speed fast once your on the ground by hitting throttle hold then going full negative.

Who cares... its just money...
