Default Tuning response

I've taken a few first brief flights with my 6250, and while it works as expected, response to control commands seems a little delayed or soft. Heli feels a little "mushy" when I fly it. What should I tweak to sharpen up the overall response?

I don't use dual rates or differential at all, so that's not at issue.

BTW- the forward programming is pretty sweet.

Is this with safe on or off? There’s an Agility option in the Swashplate menu in FwdProg. The higher the value (i.e. 120) the more responsive/agile, the lower (i.e. 80) the more sluggish/elastic.

Safe is off. I'll try bumping up the Agility setting. Thanks for the pointer. BTW- "elastic" is a perfect term for it.

Another option you have is playing with the degrees per second on your servos. The higher the number the quicker it will execute your stick inputs. But, if you bump it up to much your helicopter will become squirrely and difficult. I would start with the tail deg/sec and make that a higher value just to give you an idea of what you are adjusting. The higher the deg/sec the quicker your heli will pirouette.

Assuming we are talking about cyclic feel here.

Low of gains will result in a mushy and delayed feeling as well. You should see accurate and quick response with the default agility setting. Maybe a little bounce back on really hard cyclic inputs. The cyclic gains are adjusted to what you feel is best, don't go for as high as possible and then simply go up and down a few points once you get close.

What model, head speeds and gains are you running?

Regards,
Brian

It's an old Trex 500esp, and I have no idea about the head speed except that it's fairly high- around 80-90% in the throttle curve setup. I run constant head speed regardless of the pitch curve (Normal, 1,2).

I did bump up the gains on the cyclic and it seemed to help, but the weather has been bad and I haven't tested it thoroughly. I'll probably keep pushing it up a little at a time until I see indications that it's too high.

One other thing is that I don't fly 3D of any sort. Just "big air" sport flying.

Thanks for your input.
