I'm having trouble with setting up my Quick 30 Pro with my JR 8103 radio. I'm
setting the radio to the 3 servo, 120 degree swashplate like the manual says to
do, but for some reason it's not working. We tried an RD 6000 radio on the same
heli and it worked perfectly. Is there a software upgrade for the 8103 that I
don't know about?  Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I'm not vey familiar with the Quick 30, but I'm using a PCM 10 on an Ergo 30
CCPM OK, and I have set one up with an 8103 without problems. The JR
instructions that come with the Ergo are extremely good, and worth a read.
You can download them in PDF form from Horizon in the US. I don't have the
address at my finger tips, but if you can't find it get back to me, and I'll
e-mail you the relevant pages.

Revoh
With the JR you can reverse the three servo chanels and the three
functions that drive the servos, pitch, ail, and elev.
First ch3 needs to be on the servo that is at 12:00 or 6:00.
ch 2 and 6 are on the sides (4 and 8 or 10 and 2).
Move the throttle stick and see that all three servos are moving.
It doesn't matter if they are moving in the right direction.
If all three servos are moving on the collective input the tx is
in CCPM mode and the servos are on the correct ch at the
reciever.
Next make a 3 X 3 table and fill in how the servo moves when
commanded by the tx.  Label the columns with the ch and the rows
with the function. R= servo moving wrong way N= normal
      ch6    ch3    ch2
pitch  R      R      N
ail    N      -      R
elev   N      N      R
This is how one of my helis came out.
Now the trick is to set the servo and funtion reverses to make
all the servos work in the correct direction.  In ths case I
reversed the pitch function and then reversed ch2.
Hope this helps
Matt
