Default Setting Up my idle..please help

How do I set up my idle trim on my radio/servo? I can get to full throttle open and fully close the throttle with my setup up now, but I have no idle...What did I do wrong?

Your trim should be set in the center and your stick throw should be set so your throttle barrel is opened a bit when the stickis all the way closed or back so you can kill the engine with the trim. Some people like the trim to be more opened or closed but the carb barrel has to close to kill the engine. Not sure if that makes sense to you or not?

You may be closing the throttle barrel too much. Like Gray Beard said. Throttle stick all the way down, you should see a slight openning in the throttle barrel, then pull the trim full closed and the engine should shut off.
