What do you need i run the same setup? what are you looking for like 10 pitch and 7 cyclic or something. This heli can get wild quick! Tell me how you want it setup and i can kinda walk you threw it.

Yes, I have been reading that this heli can get wild very quick. I need a very mild setup to start. This one is a flybar heli.

I honastly set mine up they way i would want it in the future and just use expo and d/r to tame it down then as you get better you can start to ease out of the settings. I would start with 9 cyclic and 11 pitch. then put like 25 expo and some d/r you should be good from there. Your pitch curve i would say for normal do something like 0 25 50 60 100 or something to give it a slower headspeed for you. what electronics are you running cyclic,rudder,throttle,gov ect...?

no not if your just cruising around. if your just hovering go with a 0 25 50 60 or 65 100 curve for throttle and pitch got like cyclic 7-9 and pitch 10-11. idle up throttle curve 100 50 100. And pitch curve for normal do like -3 0 10 or 11. and dont forget expo it will soften controls around center

Settings
Run a governor! Set it for 1700 in normal, 1800 for idle 1 and 2150 for idle 2.

In normal mode set your pitch to be negative 6 degrees probably -25 and the rest of curve linear to 100%

Use your Swash menu to adjust the amount of Swash travel for total pitch.

For expo, we run 25% on elevator and aileron an 15% on rudder.

My 6 year old has run this from day one. Don't trick yourself with settings.

He runs 12-13 on pitch top and bottom and 11 on cyclic. Yes, it is hot but it teaches you to control it and you always have it available if you need it to save you.

Just my 2 cents.

I like the cy due to you can set the headspeed visually without a tach. Nice feature.

Yes sir!
This is the main reason I love a governor and not a rev limiter. I want to dial a head speed in and know what it will be at all times. If using other units that only allow you to enter a percentage of gain then it changes as you tune your motor. So one day it will be one thing and then next day another. I really enjoy the Curtis ATG V3 and I don't use the magnets and sensor that come with it. I purchase the Spektrum back plate sensor and plug it into the ATG V3 and this works perfect.
