Acro refers to a plane being aerobatic and 90,120, and 140 are power size references.

Does that also mean that it has no mixing.

If your reading this off of a TX, (I have the DX7 Heli version).
Acro is for Airplane.
The others are "Swash plate Degree" setups/configurations on heli's.

Oh thanks but I really need to know if a tx is set to
acro mode that it means the mixing will be turned off

Acro in a transmitter generally means airplane. No mixes will be active unless you turn them on.

I beleive the heli settings you are asking about refers to the position of the servos around the swash plate. Most helis of today are 3 servos at 120 degrees apart.

Yep, ACRO referts to fixed wing aircraft, or planes. HELI-90/120/140 refers to a helicopter, with the servos orientated at 90 degrees (2 servos, generally beginner helicopters with forward, back, right, and left movement on the cyclic stick), 120 degrees (3 servos- generally for more advanced helicopters that have collective pitch controls on the rotor blades (yes, this means inverted flight too)), and haven;t heard of 140 degrees before, but I'm sure it refers to essentially the same thing as 120 degree orientation

X9303 manual states:

The Swashplate options are:
1 Servo Non-CCPM, standard mixing type
2 Servo/180 CCPM
3 Servo/120 CCPM (JR style, most popular)
3 Servo/140 CCPM (JR Vigor CS, JR Vibe 90)
3 Servo/90 CCPM
4 Servo/90 CCPM


Just thought I would throw it out there, I had to look up 140 too, never heard of it either until now

Ummm, I dont think that transmitter has much mixing capabilities anyways. I would be afraid to use that thing. Especially if you have an airframe of any value.

Yes, you should be using ACRO for aircraft, and HELI for helicopters.
