Default Hitec eclipse 7 issues

Maybe some can answer and correct this problem I am having with my Eclipse 7 in Heli mode.

I am setting up my 450 using the Eclipse 7 transmitter. All is good untill it comes to the 3 different flt modes.

I first set all dual rates off, Inn all mixing modes, and swash setting are equal in all modes.

The throttle and pitch curves are identical in all 3 modes.

In normal postion all is good, swash pitch is ok and normal operation.

In ST1 mode all is good, swash pitch is ok and normal operation.

In ST2 mode 2 of the swash servos will move out of plane and cause the pitch to rise and alerion servo of drop about 2 degrees off level plane.

Also when the Flt cond switch is moved forward ST3 will also make the servos go off center.

I have checked all trim, sub trim, dual rates, EPA points, prog mixes 1 and 2, throttle and pitch curves and cannot find where any changes to the setting have changes in these 2 modes.

Any ideas where or what I am do to get all modes the same?

Larry

Man do I feel stupid

Found the problem in the stored trims.

I checked the sub trim settings and not the trim settings for those flt modes......

E.P.A - A.T.V - Dual Rates differences, cautions and arming ESC mayexplain why variances occur.
Suggest reset, or try on another model number which has been reset to factory default, and start again.
