Default Futaba 7c Anylink Axe cp 100

I recently bought a futaba 7c remote I was going to get a bigger heli but for now I have my Axe CP 100. I noticed when I set it up with anylink the throttle stick was reversed but all the other controls where fine. I was wondering if anyone had any set up info that might help. So when I put the stick all the way to the top it shuts off and when I put it all the way to the bottom it has negative collective.

You will have to reverse the throttle channel in your radio you will have to do this with most helis to get the throttle operatating in the correct direction when using a futaba radio.

Thanks for the response I got it but now I'm having trouble adjusting the idle ups anyone have any experience doing this? They all seem to be the same and the idle up one sends my helicopter in circles with the tail roter.

It sounds like you do not have enough gyro gain for idle up 1. To make switching between flight modes and gyro gains easier you can assign you gyro gains to the flight mode switch.

As far as the actual rotor speed you can increase or decrease the throttle curve percentage for your flight modes try something for Idle up 1 like

Idle Up 1
1- 70
2- 70
3- 70
4- 70
5- 70

and for Idle up 2
1-90
2-90
3-90
4-90
5-90

and for the gain on each flight mode start with 60% or 70% if these values are too high the tail will wag pretty quickly if it does lower the gain percentage a few points at a time until the tail holds.

Hope this helps get your heli all sorted out

alright I got the tail to straighten out now I don't have a negative collective it's basically just normal I can't get the blades to change to negative for inverted flight. all the switch positions are the same.

For the negative pitch you will have to adjust your pitch curve in your radio for idle up 1 and 2 to something like this

P1- 0
P2- 25
P3-50
P4- 75
P5- 100

This will allow for negative and positive pitch its called a linear pitch curve. With the axe cp you may have to adjust the curve to prevent bogging the head in maneuvers.

Is your throttle curve setup with a flat curve it should be 90% at all points along the curve

I don't have a 7c but I do have a Futaba radio and for the most part they are all the same

On the axe cp you may have to calibrate the throttle end points by powering up the transmitter with the throttle stick at its highest point and then power up the heli and lower the throttle stick. When I get home I will be able to look at the manual for the axe cp to verify this is how you calibrate the end points

Ok I got it it was in the throttle menu you have to switch on idle up 1 and 2 they where both in inh mode. I switched them on now I got my pitch curves and throttle curves plus I stopped my tail from wagging thanks much buddy I understand that much more about controller set up. Love this remote.

You're welcome enjoy the radio I personally think Futaba is one of the better brands of radio. I was thinking about getting the 7c a few months ago but decided to get the 8j instead for the extra channel and s-bus capabilities if I'm not mistaken the the 7c and 8j are the same price the only difference is one operates on fasst and the other on fhss.

I did the same thing but I wanted the new FASST system. I was gonna get the 8 channel but for the helicopter I was looking into I only need 7. I was looking at the Align helicopters and the SAB goblin 500.

You're better off with the 8J than the 7C only becuase the 7C has been out for more than 5 years (I think). Always better to have the newer technology not that there's anything wrong with the 7C.
