The last time out with my 87" SHP i pulled the throttle back pulled back some elevator and some left rudder. They felt about 25% so that is what I set up along with throttle position to zero and also killing my IBEC (two shots at killing the motor) The flight looked like a gental spiral down. On FG there is two sides basically for those that set it up one believe that you put it in a snap and let it go in right over its position and the other though is the slower crash like I just described. One advantage of the slower method is that there will be more time to warn bystanders.

Should the they match ? should the stick position = the output %.

No dont match them b/c if you set the stk at 36% and the out at 36% you havent done anything. What that means is at 36% stick travel you are putting out 36% power. So its still linear= no curve

About the only thing that sucks about the 11X is the manual, I think it is very flexible once you figure out how to set things up.

The 11X has up to a 7 point throttle curve, you just add additional points where you want them. Go to the throttle curve option and start moving the throttle stick. You will see "ADD" in the bottom left. Press the button and it will add a curve point at that stick position. Once a point is added, when you move the stick back to that position "DEL" will appear at the bottom left for you to delete that point if you want it somewhere else

You have to set up a stick position switch first then tie it to a timer. Here's a youtube video on how to do it, except he may have the on and off options switched.

JR11X Throttle Stick Timer (1 min 19 sec)


Losi, please PM me if you need to chat about anything on setting up the radio.

You should be able to scroll to the "out" setting for each point and change it to whatever value you want the throttle at for that curve point.

How does that relate to the "stk" % on the screen.

The "stk"% is the percentage of full travel of actual throttle stick,. 0% would be when the stick is at the bottom and 100% is where the stick would be at the top. So if you have a "stk' value of 25 and an "out" value of 10, when your throttle stick is a quarter of the way up, the motor will be operating like it's at 10% throttle. Lokking at the 10C manual, it looks like you can move or delete curve points too.

That make a little sense, looks like you have to adjust both "stk" and "out" to set up your throttle curve. On my 9303 there are 7 points I set each point to the percentage I want. On the 10c if you want your throttle to run at 30% at mid stick you have to set point 4 "stk" at 50% and point 4 "out" at 30%. Doe's that seem correct.

Yes, It would depend on what shape you want the curve and how smooth you want the transition from point to point. Once you start setting the curve the graph helps give you an idea what the motor will see as you move the throttle stick from bottom to top.

And yes, your example seems correct.

so failsafe you should be able to shut off the transmitter and the servos go to failsafe position?

If this is the case I am missing a step as it does not work

Yes but on my 8FG there are two fail safe's to program, one is signal and one is battery. Check that out. What % of stick movement did you set?

all stick movements are about 12-15%. I think it sometimes does not work if you turn the transmitter on after the receiver. Now I dont do that when I am about to fly but this was just on the bench.

That 11x programming is very similar to the 12X....overall it's a big upgrade over the 9503...but the DX18 is still way MORE programmable in many ways.
