Try reversing all the cyclic servos, then put the elevator and aileron cyclic mixes back to normal.

Servos are reversed in the "Limits" page.The setting for each channel is on the right of the screen.

I can't make any guesses without better pictures. Ideally good close-up shots of the male connector end-on and the back side (where the little tangs are that hold the metal inside) and end-shots of the female.
Thanks,
Glenn

so here we are.
is anybody around that could help with this?
perhaps fellows like KKUSA or marhar, who had shown great close-ups?
The gimbal wire connectors seem sloppy anyway. Mine moved on both sides but I just cable tied wires on the sloppy moving connectors to the better secured wires and thats removed almost all movement!

I usually use er9x. I just installed Companion9X to experiment with Open9x and the heli stuff did not work correctly at all in there. Either the collective would not work at all, or the cyclic invert functions had no effect. (I don't have my radio on the road with me, so I can't experiment in it to confirm)
So I suggest you try er9x instead, and the swash mix page will actually work.

Bruce Simpson at RCMODELREVIEW has just done Part 2 on the 9XR available on You tube. He was quite impressed with the radio, and praised it throughout the review. He will do some further How-to's on it--setting up a model, and putting in FrSky modules with telemetry.
All in all a very complimentary review of the radio.

great link

thank you altas. i was wondering why i get a message in the screen after turning it on, but he gets the same, so i guess it is just routine. it says:
'alert; switch warning; please reset switches'; 'press any key to skip'. now i feel better. there is nothing like seeing these details on a video. and the guy has a clear voice and, although speaks very fast, is articulate and does not say any ahs, and his english is very easy to follow.

now, if this is part #2, what could be on part #1?
and can you bring the link?
thanks again.
