I have recently entered the world of the new 2.4ghz radio systems. I am moving from a 6xa/6xh to a futaba 7c. I also had to do it because my old radio wouldn't work with new heli swashes. I have read thru the book and need some guidance on the setup for both nitro and elec. Any advice would be great, but here are some of my more pressing questions. Also my gyros consist of a gy401 and gy520.

1. Should I use the trim lever to cut the throttle or set up a switch. I am used to the trim levers and afraid I will hit a switch in the air cutting the throttle.

2. What pitch and throttle curves are recommended? I don't do 3d and just fly around doing 8's etc. Right now.

3. I am very confused on the switch setup. How do people have their switches done up for nitros and elecs.? I would like to keep them setup the same to avoid confusion. I don't use dual rates or care to use idle 1 or idle 2. I really only want to have throttle hold, a switch to change the gyro from hh to normal, and will probably set up a switch for the timer. Since I can't eliminate the dual rates, what percentage do I set them at so they are like disabled.

4.

Idle up is the 3 position switch on the top, left, front. Throttle hold is the 2 position switch on the top, right, front. Usually you can't change these on the mid grade radios.

As for pitch/throttle curves that depends on your heli and the head speed you want.

If you're talking nitro, set your idle with the trim (its digital on that radio) and set up the THROTTLE CUT function to shut it off.

If its electric, use throttle hold to keep it shut off while you're carrying it.

Thanks for the response. I'm just a little hesitant to use a switch to shut the throttle. Bumping the switch in the air could be bad.

I got a switch setup for throttle cut. Found out the switch will only work if engine is at idle so I can't shut the engine off accidentally while flying.

The throttle cut switch wont cut off the engine while you're flying. It has to be within a certain percentage of minimum throttle for it to work. I use switch "A" for my throttle cut. If I were you, I would go through the whole manual so you know your tx inside and out. It will help you if you have any kind of problem or need to change settings.
