The rule of thumnb that I used when setting up my leccy heli (Piccolo cp)
If you want to hover at mid stick then set the pitch to about +5degrees
and usually you will need about 75% throttle at that point
Starting points for pitch (when learning):
Bottom stick approx -3degrees
Mid stick +5degrees
Top stick +13degrees
That is linear 16degrees of movement so the heli should move predictably
when you move the pitch stick.
Throttle should be ramped up quickly on an leccy heli, this is because
leccy motors are most efficient between 70% and 80% of max rpm:
Bottom stick 0%
Mid stick 75% (set with the 'hover throttle' menu on the 6EXH) Top
With the 6EXH it doesn't have proper pitch and throttle curves (you can
only set the end points). The best way to setup the heli is this:
1/ First set the heli up mechanically (set all radio adjustments to
default: ATV, EPA, hover throttle knob to mid point etc.)
2/ Set the pitch/throttle to mid stick and adjust the pitch servo so that
its output arm is sat at 90degrees to the output linkage. Move the arm one
tooth on the output spline if you have to, or swap it to the other side
and use a new arm cut to fit but get it right.
3/ Adjust the swashplate linkages to get them nicely lined up before
touching the rotor head linkages to set your mid stick pitch e.g.
4/ Now you can play about with the ATV settings on each channel to set the
top and bottom points for pitch and throttle
After you can hover easily and safely then play with those settings to
enable 'idle up' and 'throttle hold' modes on the radio. For the moment
set these modes to INH ie. turn them off.
I can't remember where I got this how to setup a heli info from; so kudos
to whoever put it down first (it might be Beav, but my memory and the
original post is long gone).
