Default Binding Question

Just picked up one of these heli. I've never really had one of these before, I'm used to bigger helis such as the Trex 550.
When binding, what is the reason for holding the rudder stick all the way to the right during the process? Don't recall being asked to do this with any other heli. Also, when set up the way it is described in the manual (I have a ix12 trans) I have only enough positive pitch to hover in all 3 flight modes. I'm thinking it has something to do with SAFE being on, but as I said I'm not used to setting these little helis up.

Putting the rudder stick right tells the heli you are using a computer radio instead of the more basic RTF tranny.

I find the standard throttle and pitch curves give quite a livley climb, are your batteries tired?

Heli is new as are the batteries. I've got to look at the setup again and see what needs adjusted.

Check the pitch of the blades as you move the left stick up and down. when the left stick is half way, the blades should be parallel. I look at the blade grips and the screws looking from the side. it's pretty obvious when they are level. I've had a case where i had very negative pitch and barely positive pitch all the way up and the heli would never take off. Once I fixed that, all was good again
