Title says it all.... I found instructions to set up 2 P-Mixes to get 120 CCPM but the aileron stick controls Pitch and the Throttle is on the rudder stick, and the others seem goofy as well....

Sounds like you have a mode 1 Tx. It should still work on the Blade though.

I highly doubt it's selectable. If your pitch and throttle are on separte sticks, you have the servos on the wrong channels.

Mode is not selectable, but I doubt its a mode issue. Are you flying other aircraft with this radio? If so, is throttle and rudder on the left stick and aileron and elevator on the right stick? If so you're on mode 2, the most common in the states. My guess is servos are on the wrong channel. Double check your connections and programming and I bet you'll find the problem. Good luck!
