I have recently inherited an Esky Belt CP electric helicopter. This is my first CCPM heli that has only three servos. on trying it out, after disconnecting the motor, I find that I have full movement on all the 3 servos when using the throttle, but on using the ail/ele stick I seem to have very little movement on any of the servos. Is this normal or could the Futaba FF8 Tx I got with it be set up incorrectly.
The Para is set to SR-3, the swash has Ail and ele set to + 100 and the Pit to - 100, all ATV set to 100, and Exp -20. No dual rates are set.
I don't want to attempt to hover it until I am sure of the settings.
I normally fly I/C Raptors, and this is the first electric I have had.

seems like a problem with something?

If all three servos move the swash up and down equally with 9 degree of pitch +/-

I would expect programming but your numbers seem fine except the pitch at -100 seems the pitch servo is in backwards but no big deal.

Keep hunting with what I understand you have a serious problem of no control but your setup seems OK.

If you need a break go fly the raptors cause raptors rule!!!!

Belt CP
Yes, it has me baffled as well. all the servos move in the correct direction, it it just that the movement is very small about 1/8" each side ???? I get the full 9 degrees +/- pitch range and on throttle only, full servo movement. Bill W.
