I have a mcpx v2 and a nano. After flying the nano for awhile I get out the mcpx and it seems so sluggish and mushy. I am running a DX7s radio. I'm sure it has something to do with my radio settings and wanted to know if you guys could share your radio settings please. Thanks.

Surely somebody has some thoughts or ideas. On page 6 of the manual it shows settings for a DX7 so that it what I am using even though I have a DX7s. The only thing I have done different is put the expo at 25% instead of 30% and it still seems sluggish. I'm not able to do tight flips or rolls with it. I only have about 25 flights on it with no hard crashes. I doubt there is a way to make it fly like the nano but I sure would like that. I installed KBDD blades and the extended tail boom the other day and still didn't notice a huge difference. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Are you using a 100% throttle "curve"? Try turning up your travel endpoints on the aileron and elevator channels.

I just turned up my travel adjust endpoints on elevator and aileron to 115-115, on both, and also are using 100% dual rates, and 30% expo... Wow!, there is a night and day difference in the way the control feels right now, it is no longer sluggish like before!, Thanks for the advice!

I changed the travel adjustments as you mentioned and it definately is better than it was. Thanks for the advice.

it it's sluggish on the collective, check that your main gear is tight. I forget this all the time...
