It's been years since I set up a helicopter, I apologize for the novice mistake that I'm probably making.

I have a new Hirobo Shuttle 2+ with the 120 swashplate conversion. I'm following the instructions for the servo setup in the Hirobo 120 swash conversion manual and the Hitec Eclipse 7 Pro transmitter manual. I can get correct Aileron and Elevator movement of the swashplate by reversing channel 1, Aileron. Throttle is also reversed but I don't think that matters in this discussion.

The pitch is backwards when I increase throttle/pitch. I've tried reversing the servos and I get everything but pitch correct. If I reverse the pitch servo (I know it's not totally dedicated to pitch) everything on the swashplate gets messed up.

I've traced the servo cables and verified the proper channels twice. I'm sure it's something simple.

Reverse the pitch setting in your swash menu. That should do the trick

Thanks for the replies.

Thanks to thtoyman in particular.

My manual does not have all the information of the current manual available from Hitecrcd.com

The manual that came with my radio (bought new) is completely missing the "Setting up the swashplate" section.

Got it figured out.

Thanks!
