Poison- have you flown CP helis before? The "right" answer might be different depending on that.

Just in general,start with a linear pitch curve (0-25-50-75-100), then disconnect the motor and set the head to zero pitch with the stick at midpoint. Then (per the instructions in the manual), set your pitch AFR in the radio for about 10 degrees plus/minus, and the cyclic (ail and ele) AFR so that the links get close but don't touch the grips as you rotate the head while holding full elevator or aileron input. Last, put in about 40-45-50-75-100 for normal and linear for idle up. That's full range in idle up and about -2 to +10 in normal.

That's a decent sport setup for it, but you might want a different arrangement depending on how you want to fly. Good luck- the MX is a nice smooth sport flier/beginning aerobatic heli.
