Default SR 120 Tx settings.

I would be interested to hear about your Tx settings for this little bird.

I have one and I have it bound to a DX6i transmitter

I have noticed that it wants to drift forward--I have had to add sub-trim for
back stick to about 100. I will have to adjust the pushrod at the swash
to get rid of all the trim, eventually.

I'm running about 90% on the rate and about 25% expo on the right stick.

Has anybody done anything with mixes or any other settings?

Helicopters don't really fly.......
They're just so ugly, that the earth repels them.

Did you set your 120 up as a fixed wing or heli? I fixed mine up as a fixed wing and seem to be able to control it nicely from the settings on the transmitter.

G'day, Cheers, hello. :-)

I set mine as a heli. Mainly because I like the throttle hold function.

The only thing I did was go into D/R&EXPO and change my Aile, Elev, all to 50 %, then in set up list, I selected D/R COMBI, then I changed the selection to ELEV. Now, if I flip the Elev D/R switch on the left side of the DXI to position 1 (toward you), it automatically cuts your Ailerons and Elevator to 50%. Useful if a friend wants to fly or you want to fly inside and your used to flying in wind like I am. You can call it a beginner switch (mind you, I have it set up as a Fixed wing). I would LOVE to get my hands on some good Helicopter settings!

Did you set up the built-in dual rates? If not, go to the gyro menu and set switch position "1" to 0% and position "0" to 100%. Instant dual rates handled by the 5in1 board. I also have a mix setup which adds left cyclic automatically when adding forward cyclic, linked to the flight mode switch. It's good for compensating for the right turn tendency when in FFF, and can be switched off for hovering.

I used ot have a mix linked to a flgiht mode to compensate for the right drift in FFF, but I rarley used it, after a while I just compensated automaticaly, so I got rid of the mix....

Definatly set it up as a heli slot, then you can play with the throttle curve to either give you a wider "hover band" or if you plan to move on the CP someday, you can make it so it hover around 60-75% throttle, like a CP heli does...

Also throttle hold is good to get used to using if you plan to move onto CP helis too....

One thing that I did, also was to trim out the "lean to the right" that is set so it
will hover decently. If this right is trimmed out, it flies forward a whole lot easier.

I'd rather hold some right aileron when I hover, than have to add some left everytime
I fly forward.

If you have a computer radio, a better way to do this is to set up a mix that gives left aileron with throttle... somewhere around 20% should do it....
