I would like to know what most of you guys recomend for a ideal pitch curve for a newbe in this hobby, I have a BlueRay 450pe, as of right now my curve is +2 @0 & +12@100 ( full throttle) I was told two have some positive pitch just incase i have to dropp the stick, the heli will not fall out the sky too hard.

Well I guess you could get a different opinion everywhere you ask.

Personally I have a little (3 degrees) negative pitch ot 0 stick in normal mode. The reasons I have it set up this way are:

1. If it is windy and I need to get the heli down, I can reduce stick and get to 0 or neg pitch with the motor still running.

2. If you have an aftermarket esc and it is set up with "soft start" as soon as you hit 0 stick it has to go thru the soft start before you regain power.

3. If you are trying to come down (but not stop flying) it could be difficult to do with posative pitch at 0 stick.

Just my opinion.

thanks for your reply! I was thinking the same with regards to negative v/s positive pitch I have not put the heli int he air yet because I wasn't comfortable with the settings. (wanted to be sure about the curve). I was thinking somewhere about -2 @ zero throttle & +9 @ full throttle in normal mode.

That sounds good.

What tx are you using?

You can modify pitch curve to get the amount of negative you want at 0 stick. Lower overall pitch in the swash mix menu.

You can set the pitch curve to get 9degrees at full stick but if you do it this way, your full stick number will be somewhere around 87.5.
The trick in doing it that way is to make sure your posative pitch is linear.

I have a blueray 450pe with a stock TX. I can go into the t6 config progrm and adjust what I need to I guess to get the proper settings. I haven't really changed much on it.

what I really would like to do is to get the settings to a point where the heli is a bit more "tame" for my level. I dont fly in 3D yet, so control is my 1st priority.
