Hello all, I am not brand new to flying but I am stuck. I just took a Min.aircraft x-cell .60 in on a trade and want to get it in the air. Not sure where to start on my setup. I am using a dx-7 se. The swsh is a little difrent than what I am used to. My question is what swash do I use on my radio? Any other setups will also be helpful. Wanting to setup mild, no 3d stuff.

Thanks

@kinetic

Make sure you have a nice zero slop servo for the collective, it makes a big diference in the way it feels and flies.
Is the collective push-pull or straight to the aileron swing?

Thanks MoneyPitt, The collective is straight to the ailron servo that is on rocker bearings. That is why all my questions came up. I have never tried to set up a configureation like this.

It is very simple. I flew Xcell 60s so much that I still have the setup somewhat in memory.

When you "square" the collective servo arm with its pushrod for zero pitch, aileron servo on the rocker should be vertical, and the two aileron bent pusrods should also be 90 degreees with the belcranks, and swash.
PM me if you have any questions.
