So im trying to set up my 450l Dominator with a Micro beast Plus (V4.1.5). Im using an Futaba T9CP tx with a Futaba TM-8 module (2.4 FASST) and R617FS Rx.
Im using the wires that came in the box with the Micro Beast, its all been connected as instructed in the manual and on many videos, however i did have to swap around channel 5 and 6 on the Rx as 5 on this Rx is used for Gyro not 6. Once i swapped those servo wires around I had the pitch working correctly with the throttle movements.
So ive worked my way through the setup menu on the Beast fbl unit, got to steps (H) & (I).
(H) ive put on 120 which is believe is the correct setting for the 450l Dominator, then with (I) I've been trying the different options but nothing seems to be working.
I've made sure the Rx is on H-1, tried reversing a few channels but i still seem to have this problem as shown in the video.
Not really sure where to go from here. Any help would be amazing.
Thank you for taking the time to look and help.

Did you select 90 degrees/1 servo in the TX - in other words, no swash mixing in the TX?

Swash type
Ive set the Tx to HELISWH1 which i believe is the same thing.

I've added a photo of the manual so you can have a look for yourself.

Yes, that seems correct then.
I must admit that I have no idea what's happening. You could connect your servos directly to the receiver to make sure that you send the correct command to the BeastX. With elevator input, only the elevator servo should move, with aileron, only the aileron servo, and with pitch, only the pitch servo. With that confirmed, connect the BeastX again, making sure everything is plugged in correctly. If you still can't figure it out, set the swashplate in the BeastX to 90degrees/1 servo (no mixing). Now you should get the same behavior as before when you went directly to the receiver, with the caveat that servo directions could be reversed. However, again only one servo should move with each input, and it should be the same servo as without the BeastX.

I think that you want Acro mode. You do not want any swash mixing done by the radio.

I believe that he got that already. According to the manual he posted the swash mixing should be 90 degrees/1 servo, which means it's off.

I read the manual page he displayed... look at the very top of the page. I also own 3 beastx units.

What do you mean by Acro?

Set up as an airplane... acro = airplane. Beastx does all the mixing.

Just tried that but definitely isnt that. My Tx is a 9Ch Super and therefore the default is HELI (SW1)

I would first confirm that individual servos move as expected when connected directly to the receiver, just to make sure there is no mixing in the radio.

I'm mostly concerned about swapping channels 5 and 6 I'm pretty sure something went wrong there. The easiest way to test that is to eliminate the BeastX from the setup, and look at servo channels on the receiver.

It'll guarantee that you won't have any swash mixing in the radio, because there is no such thing in the plane menu.
You'll eventually have to set it up as a heli, though, because of pitch and throttle curves which you won't have in the plane menu.

No, you won't be able to.
It works on FP helis because you only have a throttle input, not a combination of throttle and pitch on the same stick input.
Connecting the servos directly to the receiver is also just a bench test, or course, not for flying.

Just tried Arco mode and that didn't work either. This is really starting to get frustrating.

check this link for receiver wiring: http://wiki.beastx.com/index.php/Ma...Installation/en

NO CCPM radio mixing is used with the microbeast.

Create a new model memory and erase all the contents of the model before starting a new model.
