RE: Spektrum DX8 Radio Setups
Picture of D/R screen.
Next is my favorite, the throttle curve. Very capable and allows you to adjust the throttle up and down so you have a linear feel. Now, I know on my Passport which is powered by E-flight 160 has a lot of power at the top of the stick. I put in a bow curve shaped throttle curve, which moves the low end up and curves it flatter toward high throttle. Also, the way the motor puts out so much power the prop actually gets about 94 db so I used the throttle curve to limit full throttle throw, which keeps the sound down (rather than the travel adjust in the servo menu). This makes sure that the high end limit is not automatically re-set to 100% each time the speed controler is powered up.
Next is the selected item for mixes. The radio has ail/rudd built in, plus 6 more mixes taht have the rates, offset and switch (on/off) all on the same screen, again with the servo movements shown on the left side of the screen so you can see the servo movements on the Tx real time. Very nice feature.
