I run one in my 250 SE and it works great. A bit difficult to dial in but once you get it they fly really nice....

Same here. When I had my 250 it was a pain to get setup right. But once I did I had an absolute blast flying that little thing.

I had a heck of a time with earlier versions of the 3GX code. Once I went 2.0 it couldn't have been better.

In fact, I just upped it to 14 degrees on the weekend because I felt it was a little sluggish. I kept it around 10 with V1 just to keep it under control.

I use V2.0 of the code, and run all stock settings. Start out with 12 degrees of collective, increase to 14 once you get used to it and might feel like you want a little more *pop*

The first parameter you might want to experiment with is the rudder lock, increase the gain until it wags, then back it off a bit so it doesn't. Then try a hard pitch up and see if the tail deflects any. If it does, decrease the rudder lock in the software about 5 or 10 points and repeat the process. Increase rudder gain until wag, back it off, hard pitch up and watch for deflection.

Repeat until perfect

The others you might want to experiment with (again, once you get used to it) is the pitch dampening, and I think it's called 'flight condition'. I was just with a fellow freaker trying to set his 450 up and I really felt it 'spongy' or soft on collective and cyclic... more than just a little 'disconnected'. After thinking about if for a while, I think I had that same feeling initially on mine... and maybe I just got used to it...

I also run governed headspeeds on mine, and he had the stock ESC with his own curves, maybe the varrying headspeed was amplifying the disconnected feeling I had.

Again... get used to it first... then start making changes.
