Default Throttle curve

Hey Danny how do you set throttle curve on a 8103. i thought i had mine set up pretty linear just thur the linkages but its not working the way i like it. most of the power is at the lowor end of the stick.

Default RE: Throttle curve

To set up a throttle curve, set up a throttle to throttle mix in mix 1 or 2, set points L and H to 0 percent (so that the mix doesn't affect your travel adjust) and use small percentages in points 1,2, and 3 to set the curve as needed. You'll only want to use small percentages to alter the curve as needed. Positive percentages will speed the response, and negative percentages will slow the response.

Hey danny what is the best way to set the curve. do you run the motor while your setting the curve. or do you do it with the motor not running at all. or just change the numbers when you come in.







Thanks dennis

Either way will work, but the fastest is with the motor running, and set according to the thrust. Without the motor running takes some trial and error but will work.

Please pardon my ignorance, but would not a wheel instead of an arm accomplish the same thing?

Yes, small percentages in the range of 5-10% or so. If the percentage used is too high it can possibly cause the throttle to increase, then decrease, then increase again. The percentage must be low enough to not cause the mix to overcome the throttle travel, but large enough to alter the curve as desired.
