Default 550X and DX8 - Reversed Collective

Good evening, folks.

I am trying to setup my 550X Super Combo kit with an AR8000 RX and DX8 TX. All stock components and installed per manual.

This is my first true heli build as all my previous purchases have been Blade BNF and RTFs.

I am also new to the DX8 as I am upgrading from a DX6i.

I am trying to figure out how to get my collective direction reversed. My cyclic servos all move as they should since I have the swash type in my DX8 set to "normal". I am stuck going through the settings of max pitch etc in the Beast until I resolve this issue. Everything moves together, but the wrong direction...

I read somewhere that you can change the direction in the DX8 by enabling swash mix and changing all positive numbers to negative ones for each servo but I have no experience doing so and thought you were to leave all mixes disabled when using the BeastX...

Any help appreciated as I have been on this.

thanks

Thanks. I knew that originally, but I had some servos reversed in the TX so it was messing it all up. Got it now.

BTW, is parameter N not needed? It does not illuminate on the FBL...

There is no Parameter N. There is a Setup point N. This is from the wiki:

This menu point is only accessible if you have installed the RPM Governor feature on your device and in case you're using a single-line receiver. The RPM Governor function is not applicable when a Standard receiver is used!
