Default Resolved: Pitch range reduced after upgrade to 5.1.3???

Resolution: I eventually realized that Step K allows you to extend the pitch ranges with the buttons there. The instructions in Studio x were not clear on that. Transitioning from transmitter programing to PC (Studio X) programming has been a steeper learning curve that I anticipated. Thanks!


After a recent firmware upgrade, I have a significant decrease in my pitch controls from + or - 12.5 deg to + or - 4.5 to 6 deg. I have the AR2710BX.

I made three changes at the same time which may have introduced too many variables. The 3 changes were:

1. Firmware upgrade from 4.1.5 (basic) to 5.1.3 (basic).
2. Switched setting the FBL from the transmitter to computer (StudioX)
3. Changed from preset "Control Style" (step B) from "extreme" to custom (375 deg/sec).

Since doing this my cyclic control is crazy great and is 12 to 13 deg. However, now my pitch ranges decreased to about 3.5 to 6 deg. I extended the transmitter endpoints for the pitch and it is now about 4.5 on one side 6 deg on the other.

In the old manual, setting up pitch range was done on step K "Collective pitch range & endpoints" where I would set it to 12.5 deg. But in the new manual, there is no place to set that. Step K has you check the throws until you get an "OK" sign from the StudioX software. Well it doesn't seem okay.

Is this normal? I assume I messed something up or their is a glitch in BeastX upgrade. When I fly it, I can also tell the loss of pitch authority. It is not just on the ground.

Thank you in advance for any thoughts or recommendations!
