I am trying to set up a new heli into my 9c. I am trying to adjust the different curves with idle 1, idle 2 and also in throttle hold. I cant get the E and G switches to activate. The book says that the assignments are preselected but they wont work on the radio. Any suggestions how to inhibit them?
thanks
Jeff

On the 9C you uninhibit/inhibit the idle-ups in the respective throttle curve menus in the advanced section.

thanks I knew it would be something simple. I have the worst time figuring out these radios.

I got it fixed. What all modes does everyone use. My radio uses a normal, idle1,idle2 and idle3. How is everyone using these different modes if at all? I am looking at Rays heli book for a reference and it seems to just refer to two modes. Is there any site that gives the different pitch curves. I am not currently flying 3d but would like to set this up for it while I am working on it this winter.
thanks
Jeff

Most people will use a Normal flight mode (FM) to take off and land, or if they just hover and fly upright circuits. You generally set this up with a small amount of negative pitch (-2° to -5° is typical) and 0/idle throttle at low collective stick. high collective stick in Normal FM should have full (or almost full) power/throttle and maximum positive pitch (+10° to +14° is typical).

ID1 is the stunt/sport or 3D mode. It is used for flying both upright and inverted. Equal max positive and negative pitch (say, +10° and -10°, respectively) are typically set at each end of the collective stick with full (or almost full) power at each end. Less power (around 40% - 60%, depending on the model and if a governor is used or not) is needed at midstick since there is no blade pitch (0°).

Many don't even use ID2. But, in general it is set up to use a slightly higher headspeed with more max pitch (say, +13° and -13°) compared to ID1. It is used mainly for harder 3D flying.

Almost no one uses ID3 except precision aerobatic FAI/AMA contest pilots. This is just another FM that can be tweeked to suit different flying styles and maneuvers.

Hope this helps.
