Josh, I want to add my appreciation to all the others on this thread. Brilliant!! IMO you are one hell of a nice guy!

I've read most of the thread and downloaded the videos so far. They are making 3D much clearer for me. I'm a newbie to 3D and your clinic is already making me focus my stick twidling to get something close to Elevator, Harriers and Hover. Well, at least on the simulator!

Got to replace the prop on my Katana MD and get out there and try again for real. Just struggling with wing rock. Gonna move the c of g back a bit and i think you're right, too much expo can cause over compensation, so i'll cut that down.

Please keep up the great work!

I think the video is fantastic .it's easier to learn by example sometimes than simply reading a book,I would like to suggest you and Ben make a video outlining a goodset up for a 3Dhobby plane,by way of video take us thru an install with tips for a good 3d set up on throws balance props etc,

I paid my bills, so they're good . Some comps with blocked access can't open them because they think my website is not good for work... for some odd reason .

Radio setup

Rudder 50 degrees with 70% Expo

Ailerons 25 degrees with 30% Expo (almost never used)
Elevator 25 degrees with 30% Expo
Rudder 50 degrees with 70% Expo

A recommendation made by 3DH on their aircrafts

Low/Precision Rates (in degrees and inches) and Corresponding Exponential
Aileron 15 degrees 30% Expo
Elevator 13 degrees 30% Expo
Rudder 45 degrees 75% Expo

High/3D Rates (in degrees and inches) and Corresponding Exponential
Aileron 28 degrees 75% Expo
Elevator 45 degrees 85% Expo
Rudder 45 degrees 75% Expo

I tend to use lower less expo than what the consensus. I compensate for that by making smaller movements. The only time I really use lo rate ailerons is if I'm trying to make precision rolling circles. Otherwise, the elevator is the only thing I switch back and forth.

There's no real "right" / "wrong" answer about this. With the aileron high rates on at all time, it allows me to make cleaner and faster snaps, which helps a lot when I'm doing my KE to KE snaps. The less expo on ailerons also allows me to make my corrections early when the plane rocks from the wind gusts. The down side is that if you're not used to it, you can potentially over corrects. I tried the same setup on Doc Austin's SR, and from the brief flights he's had on it, he liked it as well.
Hi BoneDoc. For the expo, it is negative or positive? I use JR transmitter. Thank you

Looks like his domain expired and one of the domain squatters picked it up before it was renewed.

Meantime, there are quite a few of his videos out on YouTube
