Whatever the actual values, it does not make a difference, as the value 25 gives maximum negative pitch, and 65 gives maximum positive pitch.

In both curves, 45 gives zero pitch at mid-throttle.
Actually the middle numbers will make a difference on how the stick feels during the transitions of points in those curves between the minimum and maximum pitch. The more linear the more smooth it will be and is why most instead choose to forgo adjusting pitch for a micro cp on the pitch curve and instead leave it linear and adjust pitch end points with travel adjust.


On a properly setup CP heli 0 pitch should be 50% pitch curve ( or 0 on -100 to +100 radios) and 50% stick, anything else is incorrect for a CP heli and you might as well start off right

To get an -11 with 0 pitch at 45% (midstick) and +11 pitch with a curve that starts at 25 and ends at 65 they have adjusted the servo arm or pitch links length and/or messing with software. It should be 25 through 75 to have equal degrees of output and 0 pitch at 50%

What I really dont understand is how the two pitch curves 30, 35, 45, 55, 60 (Normal flying) and 25, 35, 45, 55, 65 (Stunt flying) give -2 pitch for 30% and -11 pitch for 25% and 10 pitch at 60% and 11 pitch at 65% between the two modes unless they are messing with travel limits as well on the regular and/or stunt mode.....

Did banggood drop the price today or tonight? I had it in my cart with some parts this morning. I couldn't wait so I bought it. I paid 98 bucks for the colored box version with a lot of spares. Landing gear, motors, tail booms, extra lipos, tail rotors, linkages, canopy, main shafts, main gear, feathering shaft, rotor head, and blade grips...wheww...All came up to 139 shipped. I had a 5 dollar off coupon.

Another thing I've noticed is that if you change say one value on the pitch curve, it seems to change the actual pitch at the other points as well, which is not something I was expecting. So its clear that something has been done in the software on the receiver.

9.Now you may use the student-trainer function without a wire connection between two NASA-701.
10.With the left ear down, the heli will be controlled by the Teacher Transmitter,
And with the left ear up, the heli will be controlled by the Student Transmitter.

" I believe the Mini CP landing gear is supposed to fit."

Is there any one measured the dimensions of the land gear?

How do I upgrade the software? Does the kit include a programming cable for the radio?

This may or may not be what you want. I haven't seen it included with kits.

Yes this is the SIM cable which you need to use with the NASA-701 transmitter. The cables used with the older transmitters don't seem to work. The 8 in 1, 12 in 1 types of sim cable-USB dongles that you may have seen on the internet and eBay also do not work, since they do not have the 5 point DIN plug which Skyartec uses.

I've actually ordered one for myself (has not arrived as yet)
