Default DX6i and VPP Setup

Did some setting up here are my results.

Set up model on "heli"

Set up the throttle curve
Set up the pitch curve

I started with a 50% V but moved it to 25% so the throttle feels more natural.

Anyone interested in setup steps or details?

The other thing I learned was its easy to put too much positive pitch. I was wondering why the plane had more negative thrust than positive. Too much positive pitch loaded the motor down resulting in less rpm and less thrust in positive. I ended up putting the top of the throttle curve at 80 percent rather than 100 percent. If anyone is interested I can go through the programming by the numbers.
