Default Idle adjustment knob for nitro helis (Text Tutorial)

On nitro helis it's common to have to adjust your idle speed slightly, usually to make it easier to start. You could just use the trim buttons on the throttle stick, but I prefer an easier way of doing it, as well as an easy way to know when I'm at my neutral (default) idle position, rather than having to look at the trim indicator on the screen.

What I did on my Synergy N556 was use the right potentiometer on the front of the radio to adjust my idle.

First make sure your engine can idle at your current throttle hold setting.
That means that, once this is set up, it will idle with the potentiometer in the neutral detented position. That means you can know for sure that the engine will idle in that neutral position once it's running and/or warmed up a bit.

Create a second mix for your throttle channel, which in most cases, is channel 3. Make sure multiplex is set to "add". Set the input to S2 (pot with detent) and set the weight to 5-15%. The more the weight is set to, the more you can adjust your idle. In most cases, 5% adjustment will be plenty, but I like to rev up my engine a little bit when it's cold (e.g. first start of the day) to warm it up, so I set mine to 15%. Just make sure you don't go higher than around 10-15% weight, so that if you accidentally leave the pot set all the way high, you don't have a hot start. Also, having the weight this low gives you a finer resolution of adjustment.





That's all you need to do. You can go into your channel monitor and with hold on, you can see the idle throttle output change as you move the knob.
