Help! set up for Blade 400 with Spektrum DX6i

Ok, every thing is set up according to the manual, I think. I even went to E-flite website and set the transmitter using these updates below:
AILE 1 80% 30%
ELEV 1 80% 30%
RUDD 0/1 100% 30%
RUDD <- 80% -> 80%
RATE SW- GYRO
0: 66.5%
1: 64.0%
NORMAL POS L POS 2 POS 3 POS 4 POS H
0.0% 42.5% 60.0% 80.0% 100.0%
STUNT POS L POS 2 POS 3 POS 4 POS H

Here are the changes which I had to make in order for the control surfaces to move in the right direction: AILE + 75%
ELEV + 75%
PITC + 70%. Now, here is my real problem when I increase the throttle, the swashplate would move up, giving me negative pitch instead of positive. I just can't figure this out. Please help.

reverse the Pitch from + to - on the swash mix

Try swapping the two "aileron" servo connectors and put the percentages back to negative.

(I don't have a Dx6i or a blade 400, but this is usually the fix when you can't get the CCPM mixing to work)

Or try going into the swash mix menu and set the pitch mixing to negative.

Help with Blade 400

I just veried the servo connections at the receiver and everything seems to be in the right spot. I changed pitch in the swash mix to neg and this gave me way too much neg pitch with the throttle off. And with the throttle wide open, there is just not enough pos pitch to get off the ground. I have only one aileron servo connector, so I can't do the swapping. I tried changing the pitch from normal to reverse and this messed up the CCPM set up completely.

By "aileron servo" connectors I meant ch 1 and ch 6.
Get everything moving the right way first, then worry about the actual pitch.
