FM has no connection to the throttle channel so no matter what you do with FM it will not effect throttle. I think you need to look at the power supply. Or maybe your TX the throttle stick controls 2 channels, 1/ motor speed with no connection to fm and 2/ pitch which is connected to FM.
If you want to mount the FM gyro under the heli just mount it the right way up and stick the fixing pad to the top of the gyro, it's less confusing.

The throttle stick has 2 functions when you move it up and down. One is motor speed, it sends signals to your reciever and then to the motor. It is completly seperate from FM so any thing you do with FM cannot effect it. Only you tx setting can effect it.
The second function is pitch that sends a signals to the reciever and then to FM and the mixer in FM will send signals to the 3 servos to increase or decrease pitch.
The amount it increases or decreases pitch depends on the amount you move the stick, the pitch curve set in the Tx and the pitch travel setting you have made in FM,
You use the same stick for both functions but they are compleatly seperate. One sends signals to FM the other does not.

Can't help with the DX6i perhape somebody else can. Have you checked that travels, subtrim and trim are all set to factory default on the TX, also check that you do not have another throttle curve selected via a switch, to be sure set them all with the same values.

What esc and Rx are you running? This has nothing to do with the flymentor and everything to do with how the throttle signal is reaching your esc.

You may have accidentally changed you setting in your ESC. I have done that myself. I would re-program the ESC. Hope it this will help.
