good info, no not the same but it'll be close. theres 5 point pitch curves and 5 point throttle curves and they are read in additional ways and viewed. i think the dx7 is easier to use.

Another great setup guide for the DX6 and the SE or SA - http://www.digimemphoto.com/guides/backguide.htm

Also, the manual for the SA has a really good DX6 setup section if you want to download it here - http://www.horizonhobby.com/ProdInfo...ARF_Manual.pdf

Default RE: My DX6 Settings for the T-Rex 450 SE

Ok, DX7 setup. This is CCPM, HDE would be the same except normal swash mode and the end-point setups. I have a GY-401 and Hyperion ESC, but I'll give curves for Align ESCs as well, governor in both cases.

This gives gyro mode on the rudder dual rate switch, throttle hold on AUX2 and ties dual rates to the flight mode switch.

[D/R & EXP]:

Position 0
Channel, exp, rate
elev +35% 65%
aile +35% 55%
rudd +30% 100%

Position 1
elev +55% 100%
aile +55% 100%
rudd lin 100%

[Auto D/R EXP]
This is somewhat my preference only, this gives high rates in idle-up 2.

NORM P-0
ST-1 P-0
ST-2 P-1
HOLD P-0

[Reversing sw]
Channels 1 and 5 on normal for throttle and gyro gain, others depend on servos.

[Sub trim]
Set on zero, get everything as close as you can and then trim these. See any 401 setup guide for what to do with the rudder subtrim.

[Travel adjust]
I have all my cyclic servos on 150%, they're JR micros and this gives precisely the right travel to match the swash using the longest horns that came with them. Everything else on 100%

[Swash mix]
3-servos 120 degrees exponential active, all channels on +60

You may have to set some to -60 to get the swash movement correct, depending on your servos and linkages.

[Throttle hold]

-5%, AUX2 switch

[Throttle curve] (Hyperion ESC, governor on. Soft start is too quick so Normal is used for spoolup)
Normal: 3-points, 0% 50% 100%, exp inh
ST-1: 3-points, 80%x3, exp inh
ST-2: same as ST-1

I have also been experimenting with:
ST-2: 5-points, 100% 85% 80% 85% 100%, exp act.
This hints the governor to put in more power at full collective and appears to reduce bogging. Headspeed regulation is still good.

[Throttle curve] (Align ESC, assuming soft start is ON!!! Spoolup with hold switch)
All curves: 3-points, 87%, exp inh

[Pitch curve]
All curves: 3-points, 0% 50% 100%, exp inh

[Revo mix]
all 0%

[Gyro sens]
Rudd d/r switch
Position 0 18%
Position 1 78%

This corresponds to 56% gain in HH mode. Obviously this will vary.

I'm not using any programmable mixes.

You should put the DX7 in it's own thread so people can find it easier
