    blade 400 pitch curves

    Looking for in between pitch curves for blade 400. I have just removed training gear and would like pitch settings between the newbie settings and factory settings. The newbie settings are a little unresponsive for outdoor flying and I am not flying 3D so I don't need to have a large negative pitch below half stick.
    Wisdom is only as good as the person you give it to.

    RE: blade 400 pitch curves

    IMO, you really shouldn't alter the pitch settings.
    Use 40-45-50-75-100 Normal, 0-25-50-75-100 Idle-up or something very, very close.

    I would also leave the throttle curves as stock or higher.
    I use 0-50-80-90-100 for Normal (Finless' recommended curve) and 100-90-80-90-100 for Idle-up.

    If you want to make the heli less sensitive reduce Dual Rates, add Expo or reduce the values in the Swash Mix menu.
