Default New to flybarless

I have finally switched from fixed pitch to flybarless. Doing OK. Nothing fancy, no crashes. I do have a couple of questions. I'm using a Devo 7 Tx that came with the heli and the manual talks about pitch curves and throttle curves. I seem to understand throttle curves (currently P1-INH, P2-INH, P3-INH, P4-INH, P5 100% and from what I understand this makes the throttle perform at a linear rate 0% to 100%) has been programmed into the Tx but I am totally clueless about pitch curves. The manual provided no help what-so-ever. Any help would be greatly appreciated. The heli is a 450 size. I am looking for some beginner settings.

You will find that a flat throttle surve will fly it much better as it will keep your rotor speed more constant.. For starting, I would set the "Normal" curve as 0/90/90/90/90nd when in the air go to the idle up with a curve of 100 at ALL points.

Rotordoc...I am totally confused trying to figure out those settings....maybe I am lost....you are talking about pitch curves? 100/100/100/100/100 at all points in idle up? 0/90/90/90/90 in normal mode? Pitch curves?

I am sorry, my bad, I was referring to the points on your throttle curve.

If you do not have a pitch guage, then it is hard to help. But to start you may want a normal pitch curve (where you would never be flying inverted) with 0 degrees of pitch at the 50% mid stick position, maybe a -4 degrees at bottom stick, -2 degrees at the 1/4 stick position, and +4 at the 3/4 stick position and +12 degrees at top stick positions. For more aerobatic flying in an idle up position you may want a pitch curve with -12/-4/0/+4/+12

All of these pitch setting will vary relative to the type of flying you are doing, the heli your are flying and the power that your motor/battery combination gives you.

Thanks for the clarification...I kind of figured you were talking about throttle curves. Hopefully bignuggets sees your reply and reads up pitch curves. I know when you first begin you really need to understand how throttle and pitch work together and how you fly does make a difference on how you set things up.
