What to look for when setting main gain?

Hi again, What are the charateristics that I would look for knowing that I have dialed in the main and correct main gain.

Thanks Roman

too low and control will be mushy.... to high and when you bang the sticks around it occilates.

i always keep increasing until it occilates and then back in down in small increments until it stops.

that way you have the most control... also do testing in different situations.... windy v calm.... heavy v light load.

generally a heavy load = lower gain...... generally.

I typically listen to the prop sound when adjusting my gain. The oscillations that occur when the gain is too high is accompanied by a pulsing sound instead of the consistent swarm of bees sound.

I am using a gain some steps below oscillations which is quite slow in response & great for AP!
