3D aerobatic models always run large props because they need good low down thrust. Most of mine come in with a prop size around 0.28 x wingspan, give or take.

The low rates out of the manual should be fine, just use some exponential too to soften the response a little.

That's true, but the mixing menu is the same and it has the same mix 'offset' function that the OP was referring too... So in terms of how to program a mix it is comparable.

The DX6 mixing programming works the same as all of the other 'new generation' Spektrum Tx's.. so if you find an artical for (say) a DX8, DX9 or DX18 you will find it's the same.

Yep, that's true, all helis i've seen have some form of traditional airfoil blade, and drag is very much a concern in heli blades as it is in fixed wing.

If you can it's best to keep the wires between battery and ESC to original length, or as short as possible. This means that if there is a large distance between the motor and the battery it's better...

Yep, just a normal CP heli. To be fair it's a 700 and helis this big are a lot more stable than the small ones but even so the Kbar works great.

Yeah, some planes can actually climb in a flat spin. It's nothing new really but only models with very light wing loading, lots of control authority and high thrust can do it.

No, gain is something that can be changed 'on the fly'... I change my tail gain between different flight modes all the time.

Joe,

Just order directly from the Lemon-Rx web site. Their shipping cost is remarkably cheap. You might have to wait a week or two but better that than waiting around for ebay sellers to get stock.
