Nmryon it seems that you might not understand what each of the control channels for the helicopter is doing.
Channel 1 is the throttle. This simply controls the motor speed. Specktrum radios use curves that go from 0-100. Er9x (and friends) use curves that go from -100 to 100. So some conversion is required to end up with the same curve. So a zero in the Specktrum manual will actually be -100 in your radio.
Channels 2, 3, and 4 are the basic directional controls. I think these are already figured out.
Channel 5 is panic mode on or off. I'm not sure which direction will be which, the channel may need to be reversed to check.
Channel 6 is the pitch channel. This controls the up/down movement of the swash. This is the control that make the helicopter go up and down. This control is linked to the throttle stick. On a CP heli you don't control the throttle from the throttle stick, what you control is the pitch. The throttle curves go towards full throttle at high or low throttle to compensate for the extra load from the increased pitch.
Code: Select all
Channel 1 will have probably 4 mixer lines +100% THR Switch(ID0) Curve(C1) **This is the normal/startup mode the curve will start at -100 so the motor is not spinning +100% THR Switch(ID1) Curve(C2) **First idle up mode; this is for doing stunts and possibly inverted flying +100% THR Switch(ID2) Curve(C3) **Second idle up mode; this one has a higher throttle and more head RPMs which will increase the response of the heli R -100% FULL Switch(THR) **Note Replace mixer type; this is the throttle cut/hold, simply makes sure the throttle stay off Channel 6 only needs 2 mixer lines +100% THR Switch(ID0) **Normal mode pitch curve; the pitch range for this mode is typically a few degrees negative to full positive. As a beginner you will want to start learning in this mode. The reason is if you pull the throttle stick all the way down to kill the motor, the heli gets jammed into the ground less, as Kaos eluded to earlier. +100% THR Switch(!ID0) **Idle up pitch curve, note how there is no curve used here. The pitch uses the full range from -100 to 100. This allows for full aerobatic flight including inverted.
