    Throttle Curve Question for 100cc

    Hey guys,


    Been flying a 100cc Extra 260 with a BME115 on the front. Really enjoying it and have been "flying" a few sequences with it- right now just the Basic. Ihave never competed (in RCanyway)and I'm trying to start with a good, clean foundation which brings me to my question:


    Where do you (or most guys) setyour throttle curves/expo? Iguess more specifically- where do most guys like to have the throttle stick vs throttle position. 50%stick for 50%throttle? 50% for 70%? 50%for 30%?


    Anyone have any ideas, tips, hints?

    The BMEhas a 28x10 on it and most manuevers can be flown at 50% "power"(I'm guessing because the stick is near center and Inow have no expo, no curve, just linear).



    Thanks in advance,

    Race 21

    RE: Throttle Curve Question for 100cc

    Its a personal preference.

    I set my endpoints equal and above 100/100 I shoot for more than 130/130. then

    I set my throttle up so that the power (not rpm) is linear. I do it by feel. If it feels like I get most of my power by half throttle i set the throttle curve to move that further up the throttle stick. If you are using a futaba tx you can add a little expo to achieve this.
