Help!
Phoenix 5 with DX8

Having a problem with my setting, and not sure what it is called so not sure what to even search for in here.

My throttle is all or nothing, once I hit 50% on the stick it goes to 100% and stays there all the way up, once I hit 49% on the stick it's at 0.

Rudder, Aileron, Elevator all working fine

(I'm sure I'll have more problems, feel a little over my head right now with learning the trainer)

You have to calibrate your throttle properly. Put the stick in the middle position before calibrating. Hope it will work.

I followed the on-screen calibration, with both sticks starting in the middle- once I get to the 2nd calibration screen (Not in front of that computer so hard to remember exactly what it's called) it shows it as working all or nothing.

I think I didn't have my "sim" model setup properly on the transmitter- found a spm file for the dx8 which I'll download and start over. I'm assuming it's user error on my part, I've been mainly a quad flyer so a lot of the terms/settings for the helis & planes don't make much sense to me (why I needed to get a sim lol).
