What you want to do is, using the software interface go to the Flight Control Limits.

Flight control limits is where we teach the Total G the maximum input it can give during flight to control the model.
To set the limits:
1.) Highlight the COLLECTIVE under the Channel IPW settings and move the collective to 1500.
2.)Use a pitch gauge to confirm you are at Zero degrees collective.
3.) Move your ATV's or END POINTS on your radio to maximum for aileron, elevator (for example JR 150/150 and Futaba 140/140).
4.) Now under flight control limits, highlight (make it turn yellow) the parameter for the right limit.
5.) Use a pitch gauge and confirm you have +]11‹ cyclic without binding. If your system has too much cyclic turn down the radio ATV as needed. ATV should be somewhere between 100 to 150. If it is not enough travel with full ATV, increase the Travel Adjust (advanced menu) in Total G or change the head geometry.
6.)Once you confirm the correct cyclic, set your flight control limits in the Total G. For example; to set the Right limit highlight the right limit, hold full right control and hit Set. Repeat this for Left, Back, Forward.
7.) Once the limits are set, move your ATV's back to 80/80 for aileron and elevator. You will use your ATVs to set your total control rate. 80/80 on the ATVs is a conservative setting. For faster control go higher on the ATVs.
Note] Collective is set separately. Simply set collective ATV as needed for desired throw. Often +] 12 on collective is good. Collective ATV does not need to be reduced along with the aileron and elevator.

Need help again. In order to be at 50% pitch (0*) and at 1500 on ipw, I had to subtrim to 94!! Does this sound right??

That # I believe is not exact and may vary a little. So if you are off a few it is ok.
I would not use subtrim.
Just go into your radios pitch curve, set your stick to 50%, verify thru the radio of the position. Then set your cyclic pitch maximum degree.

All of this should be done with default pitch and throttle curves, no subtrim.

I'm at like 1650 ipw before I subtrim, that equals about 15% above mid stick. Which to me is to far off

That does sound off.
Is this starting from a new model in your radio?
Rule of thumb: fresh model in transmitter, no trims,subtrims,mixes, default pitch and throttle curves,and check all dials to be centered.
