No need for pitch curve just use a max 12- 12.5

Hi,

So that's the thing right there that I don't get. I come from a Raptor 50 where I ran -5 degrees, +5.5 degrees, +12 so that at mid stick I have enough collective to get light on the skids.

Do I need to shift my whole thinking on the NX7? Even my Trex 550 DFC has similar pitch profile as the raptor in accordance with the hand book. And it flies great for sports flying.

Hi,

I assume you have a strait line cur with 0 in the center?

Yes, all my helis like that. Align recommends a non linear curve which I have never used.

If you fly sport or scale, a non linear curve would be ok I guess.
