What do we need to set the throws to on a Specktrum DX7? I am not good at setting them by measurements.

Not sure I understand. Are you speaking of the control surface of the model? I just set the model on a table and use a ruler. Yardstick for the bigger models.

You can get a device that attaches to the wing or empennage and measures deflection in inches or degrees.

Or a throw gauge that clips to the control surface itself.

But none of these are dependent on the transmitter.

I didn't know they made such a device. I was speaking about on what setting to use. I am going to try and find these tools to purchase. These would come in handy.

I'm not familiar with the DX7 (one one of the DX6i) but they should be similar.

You want to be in Sub Trim to set the neutral or center positon of the surfaces and then Travel Adjust to change the endpoints of where they go at full stick movement. Best policy is always to manually adjust center position by changing the linkages - if possible.
