it feel like i have more of a like a hard wired feel to the heli with this TX only thing that sucks its kinda like im starting all over again when it comes to learning the feel of the controls.......

ive used big thumb stick end on my other Tx so i can get better control i gotta find some Stick end that have big thumb end cause the ones i have already don't fit cause the dx7 have thicker treads

hey burton the rear servo sholud be your elevator and if you adjust the swash mix you should be able to tone it down a little....set them all to 100% and move the throttle to full and then adjust it back a little macguyver

On the swash mix, set them low... that will soften it up!! The lower you go the softer it will be.. Stay very low on your expo like say 5% With swash mix...Leave PITCH alone...Reduce the other two to say 50 to start off.. First thing is go to full throttle in IDLE up and move the swash all round with the stick.. and make sure it is not hitting any thing at 100 I'm sure it will be.. reduce it till there is no interaction just so you know. Then go on down to like 50 and see how "soft" it is and slowly raise it up till you feel good with it..

good one. :bigthumb: as what FD is stating, this reduces the sensitivity of the heli. As you you feel comfortable and as you get better, you will be adjusting for more response. Good luck guys!!!

Well, the swash mix isn't really sensitivity.. but it is travel. and how it helps is you are shorting the travel but still using the same distance of stick movement..So it seems as though you have lessened the sensitivity. Now with EXPO, that works on sensitivity!! But you must be very careful with it.. What happens is EXPO softens the movement away from CENTER but the end point does not change so even the begining is softened, the servo still will be at the same point at the end so you will get a rush at a point.. All of a sudden you will get a rush of movement to get to the end.. So keep expo low!!

hey (007) .....im BACK to the exi Transpro zl build gave up past 2 weeks on it... need a part for my belt cp to fly so i figure work on this so maybe i can fly this one just went to the store and got me a TX for it so im good to go should be easyier now since i got my dx7 now

hey i think i will be able to get the 0 pitch i just did was u suggested by converting the two long links to the belt cp links shorter so give me more room for adjustments only problem i had was the exi eyelets don
t fit good on the belt cp link rods so i just did a simple swap and even changed the ball sockets to the Belts size ..........

............so far so good didn't get to setting it up yet i got to many heli's and parts all over my work bench makes it such a pain in the to work ill keep u posted so when i get in the mood to clean up work area ill get it done..

het burton been awhile just went out to take my exi 450 for first flight..... not good I am not getting enough lift or pitch out of my set up getting to full throttle before I start to get any lift and then the heli wants to go to the right or trys to role over to the right still going through my set up everthing looks to ok until I plug the motor back up and it still looks good but when everything is spining it just will not lift. If it is possible can you share your setting you are useing or know anybody that can help???????? orange75


Crashed my honey bee fixed pitch into a tree today total loss orange4

My exi transpro is used for spare parts now lol for other heli's i gave up on the nightmare went out got the copter x and just got my trex 500 clone.......but i do think i know what u mean like your give it full throttle and it don't really lift?


i found my pitch range was out of wack when that happened to me once.... my pitch curves are for normal mod 48-49-50-77-100 and stunt 1 and 2 are linear........

...... throttle stunt 2 100-95-90-95-100 stunt 1 95-90-85-90-95 normal throttle 0-37-50-77-100
