I am just now getting back into helicopters. Haven't flown in awhile but I did do moderate 3d. Anyways, I was just wanting to see if I could get some help setting it up. I just bought a beast x for it and this is my first time using it. I have a t8fg super. If anybody will plz just help me a little bit

Follow the wiring in the manual for the Futaba receivers and just go through the manual, it is long winded but is written very well and once you have read it once it's dead easy.

The main things people get wrong are:

Step J, cyclic pitch geometry. This has NOTHING to do with your cyclic pitch and therefore roll/flip rate. Is is only so the unit learns the relationship between servo movement and blade pitch (resolution) so that stock cyclic gain is where it needs to be and servo speed to torque ratio is optimised. Just make sure you set 6 degrees no matter what light you get at 6 degrees. Blue light is just optimal, you may need to play around with servo arm lengths to get that blue light at 6 degrees.

Next you should set max cyclic pitch without binding NOT the standard 8 degrees or whatever, most helis can get upto 15 degrees of cyclic pitch. This is NOT how much pitch will be used for a flip/roll, in the same way your tail will hardly ever use full tail pitch to do a pirouette, the extra pitch is there in reserve if it needs it to over come a heavy gust of wind etc.

Another thing that can be confusing is step N, Setting the pirouette optimization direction. When entering step N the swash will tilt one way, it asks you to rotate the heli by the head as if doing a pirouette. The swash should remain tilted relative to it's compass heading NOT in relation to the heli. So if the swash tilts towards a certain object in the room it must stay tilted in the direction of that object as you rotate the heli.

First Step..
In the older units, you had to setup your servo type and frequency before plugging in your servos.. check to see if that is still the case.. it could save your servos!!

Read the documentation completely before starting any work. If you are watching videos(and I recommend them), you need to make sure you are using same versions of software and hardware. Things have changed over time.
