Default Expo Settings

What do I need to set my transmitter expo settings on to make the heli very docile?

At first i would reduce the rates (the travel distance of the servo) to something like 60% to 65%. This should help a lot. Then you still can use expo if you want/need too.

If you want to have a really docile settings to fly K110, set

Dual rates for cyclic (both ail & elev) to 70% and
Expo to 30

Pitch curve to 60 both high and low ends
Also check that pitch is zero when throttle stick is centered. Adjust pitch curve if necessary.

Throttle curve to 70 middle, 75 at endpoints.

This is for idle up setting which I strongly recommend to use and scrap normal setting. Sooner or later you will do maneuvers fly inverted and then normal mode will cause problems.

And learn how to use hold switch. That will be needed frequently if you want to learn 3D.

If the above if too docile, increase values to your liking. You should be able to use 3D mode with this in adequate space.
If cyclic is too lazy adjust that separately. If collective (vertical direction) response is not right, also adjust 60 to larger (or smaller) value. When advancing to flips and loops add throttle to 85 to 100 depending on your feeling.

I'd suggest keep the head speed up, expo low. but use very low dual rate and low collective range to train hover / gentle fly in ILDE UP for the first few times. something like this (just a general guidance, feel free to modify according to your preference):

D/R: channel 1: 50. 2: 50. 4: 50.

EXP: channel 1: -25. 2: -25. 4: -25
(you especially need some expo in channel 4 the rudder. Because many new pilots tend to accidentally give unintentional rudder input while moving the collective stick up and down, you need the rudder center stick to be less sensitive to prevent that from happening.)

T. Curv: 80 80 80 80 80
( don't get intimidated by the loud motor, higher head speed means more stable and predictable control, as long as you have docile pitch curve the heli won't feel very touchy.)

P. Curv: 40 45 50 57 65

two things you may want to get used to as early as possible, loud high flat throttle curve. and zero pitch at mid collective stick. which are helpful for further progression into the hobby. (inverted, or 3D flying etc)

Happy flying
