Default Spirit + x3 setup advice

I don't seem to be able to get my head setup correct.

I have -10 +12 collective pitch, and 2 cyclic (blades out to the side) when sticks are centred.

I've checked the swash is level and the servos arms are 90.

All the links are the lengths in the manual.

Any ideas? Are there any good videos on the x3 setup with a spirit fbl unit?

You should move this to the Spirit thread or the Spirit Forum also.

Edit: Found it. You can can use this screen to adjust positive and negative pitch separately.

You can adjust positive and negative pitch separately in a different menu for Spirit. I can try and take a screenshot when I get home if you can't find it

You can't have both a level swash and 2 cyclic. If your swash is level the blade will have the same pitch at every position. Also, link lengths in manuals are always approximate.

Go to the Servos tab in your Spirit Settings and check Subtrim to lock your servos at neutral, then if your servos arms are really at 90 and your swash is really level, the last step is to adjust your swash-to-grip links until both blades are a 0 pitch.
