Are you trying to program the throttle curve for the heli?

Your post is confusing. What radio and esc are you using? Normally the you set the throttle travel to the esc and then you program your curve in the transmitter, but it sounds more like you are talking about collective.

Radio is T6A zdfly. Hausler 450 not sure about speed control.I am trying to set throttle up. Trying to set ESC idle middle stick. Full throttle top for positive bottom full throttle negative. I have had success in setting full at top and idle at bottom where it should be full throttle negative. Also problems with rudder.

If you mean "idle up" when you say "throttle up", on some of the more popular radios, that is set in the radio.

That's a new one for me. I have not heard of setting throttle to idle at mid stick and power at both ends. Usually it's gradual power from low to high stick (normal mode) and sort of a "V" shape curve or straight line for the other models (stunt mode). Now your pitch curve will do what you are talking about. Either way...both throttle and pitch is setup in your radio. Usually the only settings done in your ESC are spool up speed, brake, timing, etc. You might want to find your local field and see if there are not some Heli pilots that can help you set it up.

This is my first for setting up a heli. Correct me if iam wrong but isn't center stick neutral or zero pitch? As you move the stick up for positive you increase throttle along with pitch. And from center stick down you increase negative pitch along with throttle.

Looks like the radio does not have any way to program it directly. From what I can tell, you need an adapter to hook the cable to a USB port on your computer and you need to download "Digital Radio Software" to set the idle ups in the radio. This is all done from your PC.

Most people like zero pitch at center stick. Positive pitch is up and negative pitch is down.
Set it up how you like. The above is best for 3D flying.

If you are a beginner to helis, you don't need to set (throttle up) idle up. I flew for years with zero throttle at low stick and 50% throttle at mid-stick and full throttle at full stick. You mostly need throttle up when you start going upside down. Hopefully by that time you will have a different radio.
Did that radio really cost $23? I never thought I would see the day.

For most cases you are correct for the pitch, but the throttle would be set different. For learning and start up you will have throttle set that all the way down is off and all the way up is full throttle. This is only for upright flying and not for stunts. You should then be in a hover just above mid stick. After you take off and if you want to do stunts (3D) then you would need a different throttle curve that would be activated by a switch on your transmitter. You might use something like full throttle at low and high stick and something less like 75-80 percent at mid stick. This is all done in the radio and in your case it may need to be connected to a pc. If you do not have experience, find someone who does that can help you otherwise your helicopter will most likely not be around very long.

I would use a "normal mode" throttle curve of zero to 100% from low to high. For the idle-up, I woould set center stick to 70 or 80% throttle. something like-
100%
90%
80%
90%
100%
You take off in normal mode, then switch to idle-up. If center stick was zero, the motor would quit everytime you tried to go inverted. You want the motor powering the heli the whole time.
Maybe it won't let you set zero to mid. It's not a good idea.

I have never seen an ESC that could be programmed this way. All mine are done thru the transmitter.

Do you need to charge the battery?

DO NOT accidentally flip the switch for idle up on the bench, it will "chicken dance".
