Default Pitch curve setting on Aurora 9

Anyone know how to set the pitch curve in the Aurora 9? I'm confused because I don't know where to set negative values for the pitch. I thought it's under ACC but that value stays the same when i move the stick through the graph. and yes i'm a noob......

it will not show a negative value. you use your pitch gauge in combination with adjusting middle point to achieve 0 degrees and than lets say plus 10 at top and neg 10 on bottom and than you can go back and change percentages to change lets say minus 2 on bottom.

No need to be sorry. Watch the CCPM videos and the video of Pitch and Throttle curves from this section : https://www.helifreak.com/showthread.php?t=41692

Dude, you need to watch CCPM setups Part 1 & 2 in Tjomp's link! (Watch all of it at least 5 times so you understand what you need to do to get your mechanical setup of the 450 right!)

You will need a pitch gauge, so get yourself one of these as it is an important element in building CCPM heli's.

Once you have setup your heli with 50% throttle, to centre your servo arms, this should give you 0 degrees pitch. 100% throttle = positive pitch and 0% throttle = negative pitch, got it?

So a linear graph on the A9 starting from bottom left hand corner to top right hand corner is:

-12, 0, +12 degrees pitch.

The TX is only a device to customise your MECHANICAL pitch settings, so watch BOB's videos carefully!

Good luck.

G.

The graph that gets displayed is 0-100. 0=stick all the way down 50= mid stick and 100=stick at the top.

Before even setting up your pitch curves in the radio you need to make sure you have established a good mechanical setup.. I.e mid stick = 0 deg pitch, and full negative and positive pitch are equal. i.e. -12deg/+12deg..

Once the mechanical setup is correct, then you can change the default linear pitch 'curve' to meet your pitch requirements.

As already mentioned watch the CCPM setup videos, as they will give you all the information you require to do the mechanical and radio setup.

Can I change pitch on the fly to fixed values for non-3D flights? On other transmitters which have a cylindrical dial you can rotate let's say between 1 and 9 and adjust the angle of your blades on the go. On the Aurora 9 there is no cylindric dial like that.

Interesting question. Do you want to fly with fixed pitch?
You can create several flight conditions and assign them to switches. Each flight condition can have a flat pitch curve set to your prefered value.

If you want to do it more traditional, you can have a regular pitch curve and set an adjust function on it. This will act like a subtrim on your pitch curve.
Check out "Adjusts function switch set-up" in your manual.
