Not sure what you mean with the stick at top. if that is the throttle I thought when binding you have everything hooked up, put in bind plug turn receiver on, throttle all the way down then turn tx on in bind mode

I am programming the throttle stick range between the Tx and the ESC from 100% to 0%. In short, you turn on the Tx with the stick all the way up, you plug in the heli, you get a couple of beeps, push the stick all the way down, get some more beeps and you are done. Everything binds just fine it's just that the motor starts at 20% which I think is too high considering all my other helis start at around 7%.

That would be setting end points in the ESC, the rest would have to be done in the TX throttle curve setting.

I don't think I can do that with this:

Oops, sorry , I didnt know that you were still using the stock Tx. I knew it would get confusing in here due to the many different combinations going on.

Oh, no worries. This is just the Walkera setup I bought because it fit my needs for the conversion.

I'm not familiar with that TX. Can you set subtrims and travel adjust.
If so try setting travel adjust on throttle to -10 to +10 and see what happens..

I can only adjust trims and reverse servos with this one.

Then your pretty much at the mercy of the TX as we were with the stock MJX unit. Turnigy 9x would be a good addition or you might consider a Devo 10 which you can flash with deviation and will run the RXs you have as we'll as Devo and spectrum.

Went out today before the rain starts and I gotta get some more batteries for these things. I want to try 3S but not sure if 2200 mAh is appropriate.

My 90 degree Align swashplates should show up today so I need to decide when to pull the trigger on the full 450 flybarless fixed pitch head conversion. I am thinking I should just cut the metal rods off the F45 flybar first, leaving the mount and linkage, to at least see how it will handle. Decisions.....Decisions......

I would think theres to much slop in the stock rotorhead to make it a stable FBL platform, 3 axis gyros arent the fastest thing in the world. Note when tilting the heli how slow it is to return to level swash. It would seem to me that youll be on the cyclic control having a epileptic seizure.

Then again, if you do give it a try, do take some video of the maiden.

You are correct sir! I just pretzled the flyber (and broke another set of Xtreme blades), so I cut the rods off at the holder. After quite a bit of fiddling with the gyro settings I was able manage some sort of hover for about 10 seconds, but no way stable at all. Next option would be to hook the bones direct the the blade holder. After I mess with that for a bit, I'll by the good stuff.
