Turn the radio ON, select a new AIRPLANE model and GO. The mSR-X only needs to know stick positions from your radio, so there is no reason to deal with the complexity of helicopter setup, just use an airplane model, and set up the expo and dual rates if you want. There's some mixes that might help with certain issues, but really, a straight-up 4-channel airplane setup is all you need.

You can also use the "single servo" swash plate style in heli mode, and probably make no settings changes and it will work, but the only real difference with that is you can set up a throttle curve, but I find that unnecessary on FPs.

well there is one Jasmine in plank mode you cant set up the Throttle hold switch which is a good habit to get in to now
guess you could do it with a mix but its easier to use heli mode and turn it on lol

also op turn the rates down for indoors a bit and dial in some expo
