Anyone have any suggestions on the pitch curve in throttle hold? How little how much ETC

I run my hold curves exactly the same as my idle up curves. 0-100.
I dont like the heli to jump when I flip modes or hold.

Same with me.

I run ALL of my pitch curves exactly the same. I dont want a jump when I hit a switch.

Run your hold curves the same as whatever mode you are flying around in most. In most cases this would be idle up.

I agree with the above answers. At first, I used the common advise - throttle hold -4 to +10. But I didn't want to have the pitch jump if I started on auto, so I changed to using the same as in idle up and find works great. I also use my normal mode at a flat 0 degrees so I don't start flying in normal and turn it upside down and run out of pitch.

Same here. I just use normal for checking HS. But I have slightly negative pitch on my flat curve. It could get light on the skids if a gust of wind comes while i'm taching the head :shock:
