Default Mcpx Indoor Beginner Settings

I've read on other forums that the Mcpx is not a good indoor beginner helicopter. I decided to tame my Mcpx down to fly more like a indoor trainer. It may not be perfect however I think its a good starting point for someone just learning. Good luck

I thin kit is ok for indoor training, you just need to get used to the quick response as it can get fast quick!

You really need to keep the main rotor speed up for stability and to stop the dreaded wobble that the mcpx is prone to. My indoor settings are

throttle 0-50-100-100-100
pitch curve 40-55-70-85-100


This keeps rotor speed up, gives more gradual pitch increase and stops the heli dropping through negative pitch when throttling down. It becomes much easier to fly in small places.

I didn't mean yours when referring to the wobble.You have the carbonfibre frame fitted. Others especially newish mcpx owners will experience a wobble occasionally when the head speed is allowed to drop under load.
