Default Dual Rate Set Up

So, how does everyone set up their dual rates? As I see it, there are three options.

1) Set up the mechanical linkage for the HIGH rates and adjust the servo travel on the radio DOWN for the LOW rates.

2) Set up the mechanical linkage for the LOW rates and adjust the servo travel on the radio UP for the HIGH rates.

3) Set up the mechanical linkage for in the middle of the LOW and HIGH rates and adjust the servo travel on the radio UP for the HIGH rates and DOWN for the LOW rates.

Other options?

I will set up the mechanical linkage for high rates or maybe a little more then electronically cut back for low rates.

I don't think you can set up low rates mechanically then electronically get more throw out of your linkage. What ever you set up mechanically that is all there is and their aint no more.

Part of this will depend upon how much power you need from your servos vs the speed of response you desire, as well as howh extreme your low vs high rates are.

In GENERAL, we recommend setting up your linkages to create the high rate. This gives you 100% throw at the computer, giving you high resolution, good power at the servo, and the extra travel over 100% at hte computer for minor adjustments.

Thanks for the quick responses. I have been doing it exactly as AnnMarie describes so I'm on the right track.

DEG, on my radio (Futaba TX6As), I can increase the throws both positively and negatively without changing the linkages.

DEG, Most computer radios give you the ability to take the high rate (or ATV) up to 120% or even a little higher.

Default High-low rates

I always adjust the linkages so that I get a little more than the deflection recommended by the manufacturer, then adjust the actual full throw during the first flights, and later the low rates, both at the TX.
