Not sure here Colin why would the servo centres of the head move when you move the throttle/motor trim, setting up is very labour intensive but worthwhile in the end, get it right & flying the beast gets a whole lot easier I think..!!!

Good, you are heading in the right direction now. I was going to send you a link for Finless Bob, but it sounds like you have it.

Once the mechanical set up is correct, the curves are the easy bit.

Good luck

From the figures you've quoted Colin and what you've described it sounds like the pitch channel wants reversing but I've no idea what trannie your using and whether that's possible

Colin easy way to check is disconect the motor then move the trottle stick up, if the swash gose up its the right way if it gose down the pich channel will need revercing like Bri says

Just written a long post of to do and look for, but lost it !

is your pitch curve liner ? 0 to 100, if so I would agree with Mark, if not then make sure its liner first before you set any thing up.

I'm probably not the best person to comment here, but is there a chance that a component is on upside down (or back to front)?

For the heli to be setup correctly
ALL Pitch curve needs to be linear NORM, ST1,ST2, that way when setting up the mechanics you have full travel in all directions.
once you have you straight line on TX and your mechanics are setup correctly
then you start setting up your curve to suit.

When ever you set a heli up, you always have all your pitch curves,throttle curves linear and mix are off. So that you have full range on every thing then you tame things down to suit you needs.

Not sure what you mean "just out of interest my reverse menu is ch1 nor ch4 nor
c"

If you time bring the heli transmitter & manuals down the field today or sunday it will be much easier to eyeball the setup
