Instead of moving up one spline on servos you can just change your pitch curve in normal throttle mode in transmitter and do the same thing . Idle up modes will also still be correct and so will proper head set up for future idle up use .

Default my heli

I was never a fan of dumbing down the heli controls; including overdoing the exponentials. I prefer to learn how to slow down the heli based on my input. I completely get why one would want to slow down the heli. One of my biggest challenges while I learn to fly is slowing down the heli but for me that means smaller, more controlled inputs.
Iíve had my share of slamming down the stick because of fixed pitch muscle memory. Iíve relearned to instantly switch back into idle up when bad things are happening. When I got my first collective pitch (MCPX) I was used to catching the little fixed pitch guys in my hand to land. Well this time with the MCPX I forgot to switch back to idle up and throttled down to landÖOUCH!
Iíve been gradually bumping up my settings on the transmitter. These heliís are pretty capable. The way my heli is set up now, slamming down the throttle stick will make the heli drop about 50 feet per second; I can elevate at about 25 feet per second. Slamming the cyclic means Iíll rotate 90 degrees and I better react quick. Dropping down quickly comes in very handy when the wind grabs your heli (also necessary for inverted hovering). It seems once youíre up 30 feet in the air the wind is completely unpredictable and very strong.
Everyone has to do what works for them but relearning habits will definitely get in the way of progress; although I realize we all have different goals in regards to the hobby. With that said I have found your videos very useful, and thanks cruzroy.
This heli is the reason why I havenít given upÖ

Yea, the low point of your pitch curve controls what you did manually. I read a post somewhere, it said set it to '0' to accomplish what your looking to do. But their heli set up may have been stock. You might need positive pitch based on your set up. Mine is somewhere around -80…HA!
