Could anyone lend a little help setting up my first ccpm heli. Can someone tell me which way should the swashplate move when giving full pitch for a trex 600 nitro pro. Once I get the swashplate setup I can work on getting the pitch of the blades dialed in.

If properly built -- standing behind the heli, nose pointing away from you.

Forward/backward cyclic. Push the stick forward, toward the top of the transmitter ("down elevator" ), the front of the swashplate tilts down, the rear tilts up. Pull the stick towards you ("up elevator" ), the front tilts up, the rear tilts down.

Left/Right cyclic ("aileron" ). Left stick, the left side of the swashplate tilts down, right side tilts up. Right stick, the right side tilts down, the left side tilts up.

Collective pitch. Positive pitch (moving the throttle/collective stick away from you --- toward the top of the transmitter), the swashplate moves UP the main rotor shaft -- leading edge of the main rotor blades tilt UP. Negative pitch (moving the throttle/collective stick down, towards you), the swashplate moves down the main rotor shaft -- leading edge of the blades move downward.

Is this a flybarless helicopter, or does it still have a flybar?

Nice write up Dkshema.

I have same setup on my 600n (flybarless now)

I particularly like this setting. I think its specific to JR and maybe spectrum as well.

"IF YOU HAVE an EXPO setting in this menu, enable it, as this will smooth out the pitch curve giving you better pitch control"

A pretty important setting I feel, glad to see you mention it.

While all three cyclic servos should be same brand and better yet same batch this will also help to balance out the three eg: smooth out movement of all three servos. A side effect, it also decreases the total pitch range I noticed. Easy to add back in that correction after the switch is enabled, but it does take a few degrees off the total movement up/down.

(I really love good write-ups saves me some time in the future
