Default Swash mix DX6i

Did anyone set all the Swash mix to 125% on the DX6i radio? Is that too extreme to fly?

Yes, that's too much. You really need a pitch gauge rather than just blindly making adjustments in the swash mix menu.

The value for swash mix ends up being whatever it is, and is directly related to any adjustment you made to it in order to get the pitch range you want. So if it defaults to 60%, and you measure your collective pitch at 10 degrees and you want 12 degrees just say. What you would do is increase the swash mix value until you get 12 degrees on the gauge. Whatever value you end up with in swash mix is what you end up with. Unless your swash to servo linkages are on the innermost hole on the servo arm, you shouldn't be anywhere near 125%.

Good luck.

and if you set your Aile/Elev swash mixes to 125% you will most likely cause severe binding in the head. Go here and watch the head setup videos.
