Default Heli-X Not Recognizing DX8 Pitch Curves

I am new to Heli-X. I'm transitioning from Clearview. Trying to decide whether or not to buy Heli-X. I downloaded the trial version and am using my DX8 with the sim's Logo 600.

I used the extremely helpful setup guide from user "ArchmageAU" and am very thankful for the concise info.

The heli does not seem to be responding to my pitch curves in the DX8. I performed a little experiment and determined that it DOES respond to the throttle curves in all Flight Modes.

When I set the pitch curves to flat 0 in all Flight Modes, the heli still lifts off and heads for the heaven with only throttle input. It's acting like a fixed pitch machine.

Shouldn't 0 on the curves be -13 deg on the Logo 600? Why is it leaving the ground at -13 deg?

"Ignore thrust and pitch curves." in the Sim Controller setup screen are checked.

Perplexed!

Default Solved

Problem was Controller Configuration in Heli-X setup. I had Pitch and Throttle set to the same XAxis. I reconfigured the Pitch to XRotation and that fixed it. Here's a pic of how it is now configured for my DX8.
