Been out of the hobby for a while and forgot quite a bit of radio setup. I cant seem to get the swashplate to go up/down when giving it some throttle. Using DX7S radio and stock mcpx. Any tips/tricks are much appreciated.

Did you setup the radio per the instruction manual of the mCPX? It's not perfect, but it will at least get it going. Did you bind the heli in computer radio mode?

Yes I used the setting they provided. As for binding in computer mode, I have never heard of that. I just pluged the heli in, held the bind/trainer button down and turned the radio on.

Far from an expert here, but you set it up w/ a swash type of 1 servo at 90 degrees right? If so, you might try to rebind (actually I'd do that regardless). If the heli gets bound in non-computer radio mode things won't work well at all.

If neither of the above suggestions work, why not try posting your setup here so folks who know more can take a look at it? :-)

Good luck!!

Thank you very much for the quick replies. I had the swash type at 3 servos @90 degrees. After switching to 1 servo 90 degrees its working how it should. Thanks again!
