Default Find 50in and 50out on 8fg

Just like the thread says... How do I find perfect center stick? The servo neutral doesn't seem to be working.

I'm not real familiar with that Futaba radio. Go into your throttle curve or pitch curve. As you move the stick it should give you a percentage.

Go into your servo monitor screen and make sure channels 1-4 are at zero (0) hope it helps

Just set your pitch curve to -100 0 0 0 100. This sets a dead spot in the middle so you don't have to find center stick, you just have to be from 1/4 stick to 3/4 stick to get 0.

Thnks all, on to the next!!! Any input on why I might not be getting servo movement through the Rx to the 3gx unit? I've checked my Tx settings and they look right, and yes the Rx and Tx are bound. I even switched the throttle and pitch channels like the align manual says.

Any sign at all that the S.Bus signal is getting through to the 3GX? Check where you have the lead plugged into the rx. Easy to get wrong. Check even if you think you have it right!!!
