I am posting this to help with setting up a CCPM heli under er9x. It is a bit different to do than on "regular" radios, so I hope this helps.

Start with a new model. You can do it on the radio, or in eePe. I did it all on the radio, but it would be easier to do it in eePe.
In the Heli setup page choose 120 as the swash type (120X would have one servo on the side and two fore and aft)
While there select ch11 as the collective source.

The next thing you have to do is decide where you are going to plug in your servos.
Unlike most radios you can actually put them into any available channel.
The template assumes the following assignments

ch1 "elevator" servo - i. the one in front or back of the swash
ch2 one of the roll cyclic servos
ch3 the other roll cyclic servo
ch4 throttle
ch5 rudder
ch6 gyro gain

and it also assigns (virtual) ch11 to the collective mixing function
The resulting mixes look like the image below.

But what does it all mean?
