Default DX6i settings for the Blade 400

I inadvertently 'reset' my DX6i, erasing the Blade 400 settings. I subsequently located the factory settings at: http://h1071118.hobbyshopnow.com/Pro...400RTFHeli.pdf

The setup was straight forward with two exceptions:
1. DR & Expo shows correct settings as:
AILE 1 90%
ELEV 1 90%

The 90% was easy to set but I couldn't change the 0 to 1, so I have:
AILE 0 90%
ELEV 0 90%

2. TRAVEL ADJ wants RUDD <-90% ->90%
There is only one number to adjust on the menu, so am I safe to assume that setting 90% at the one occasion is all that's required.

While I assume the TRAVEL ADJ is ok, I am concerned about the 0 vs 1 difference I can't resolve on D\R & EXPO.

Advice greatly appreciated.

Flipping the dual rate switches for both AIL and ELE will allow you to set rate 1. You can set separate rates for 0 and 1 just like your normal / stunt switch.

Rudder travel adjust is changed by moving the stick in the direction you want to adjust.

d/r & expo
by flipping the ail d/r switch above the right stick you`ll see it change in the d/r expo window
mine is (0) 100% inh
(1) 90% +20
by flipping the elev d/r switch above left stick you`ll see it change in the same window
mine is (0) 100% inh
(1) 90% +10
by flipping the rudd d/r switch on the front right above the throttle hold switch you`ll see it change in the same window
mine is (0) 100% inh
(1) 100% inh
all switch`s act like the sticks in the travel adjust window. you have to move each control in both direction to acheave the same values for both direction`s
