using heli mode on the Dx7s

I would like to fly my nano with a curved throttle response, the only way I know how to get that on the Dx7s is to use the heli mode. BUT then aux 1 dissapears and is replaced by pitch which is slaved to the throttle. Does anyone know how to decouple that channel from throttle and to operate it as a momentry switch on say the trainer button?

Thanks

Terry

Thats the issue with the "dumb" computer radios such as the Spektrums: they do all sorts of "smart" stuff for you. With an OpenTX radio, you basically start programming your model from scratch. Its harder to begin with, but waaay better when you worked it out.

Littel story: I used to race offroad cars. A few month back, I went down memory lane and drove to my old racing club. Setup my SC10 on my 9XR. Configured a custom throttle and steering curve for the fast sections on the left gimbal, and different curves (more steering, less throttle) on the right gimbal for the infield.
It took me an hour or two to set it up. People started laughing at me.
They stopped laughing and started to cry foul when we started racing. I was able to run lap after lap very consistenly, and beat folks with way more race experience, because the car was just 100% dialed in.

Same with flying micro quads. Just that the tuning methods are way more extensive. People watch me flying and say "how did you learn THAT?". Its much more setup skills than pilot skills.

Hope that encourages some of you RTF Tx pilots to get yourself a decent radio.
Its a world of difference, and custom curves on all channels are the key difference. Previously only found in very expensive radios..

Thank you RC_Flying, the links were great. Although a nube, am looking to the possibility of building my own quad. Thanks.

Great Video Ben! I've been debating on getting a fully programmable radio and I think you just made my decision easier.

This throttle curve stuff is new to me, so feel free to tell me what I'm missing, but I have a 'dumb' dx6i, and I've always used the Heli freak settings

http://www.helifreak.com/showthread.php?t=543747

I've just adjusted my throttle curve as in the post at the top except I adjusted stunt mode the same as norm mode as I fly in agility mode, so I now have a smoother or curved throttle.

Flying in confined spaces

I'dd heard these were good to fly in confined spaces so I had a go in the cabin of our narrow boat, and found it was no problem at all. Here's a short clip of one of the early flights.
