Default Trimming CPII

My CPII is working great, but I clearly need to adjust the angles. How much do I start with? Is 1 degree meant to roll or pitch the heli 1 degree?

I found on mine that 0.6-0.7 max only was necessary. best is to do it in small increments of 0.1 or 0.2 at a time.

I agree with pril250. Use only small increments. It shouldn't take too much to get it right.

Mine had a good left roll on it so I set it to 1 degree. Turns out, that was twice as much as I needed.

Okay, that explains why 1 degree caused my heli to take off and hit the ground before I could get her back from the CPII. I'm a relative noob... Waiting for a new servo and she'll be back in the air, no real damage. I did enjoy the CP before this! I think I understand it all now. Live and learn...
Thanks guys,
Terry
