Default BLADE SR - reversed pitch?

Hi All,
Obviously i am fairly new to CP Heli's. i've been following all the videos for CCPM setup and have one puzzling question. All my servos are setup correctly, moving the right way but it seems as though my pitch is reversed! at low stick, i have positive pitch. at full stick, i get full negative pitch... and yet, my swash is moving correctly.. low stick= down, full stick= up.

Can anyone help explain?

thanks

The SR is different then other heli's. The pitch arms are set to positive when the swash plate moves down. Go into your swash mix settings and change the signs of ail, pitch and elev settings. Usually one or more will be negative and the other positive. Good Luck.
If you have rebuilt the head, the pitch arms could be installed reversed also.

Still having issues with pitch adjustment looks like it is setup in IU mode but i did not set it up this way. BTW, i am using DX6i TX

Watch that video a few more times, it took me 5 times through before I retained enough info to set mine up right. Then go back through the set up with the tx in IU. That should fix your problem.
