Hi.

Anyone that have tryed this?

I cant get the rigid to work ok, if fells a bit twitchy on the cyclic.
And i have problems to understand the setting in rigid menu, like

(remember that an articulated head will respond 90 degrees after imput,
a ridged head will be somewhat less than 90 degrees more likely
between 90 and 70 degrees) . I tried the advised 75% EXPO and the
helicopter was downwind 50 feet before I could stop it. I cranked it down
20 points at a time until I got a control feel I liked. In my case 15% as
I like responce sooner than later. This may change when I get it in the
scale body. Just some ideas until real help comes along Mine is a
Blade 400 4 blade head (Ridged). Good luck

By twitchy do you mean it's too sensitive to control?
I recommend you reduce "control travel" in aileron and elevator in the "mixer" tab if you haven't already since the more blades you have the less cyclic travel you need to get the same response as say a 2 bladed head.
Also in the "Rigid" tab on the software, you could reduce the "stick gain" - it's kinda like expo on your tx.
If you hover your cursor over the parameter in the software, a box appears that expains what it does.

Hope that helps
