Quote from: PDR on May 15, 2020, 11:41:04 amLooks pretty similar - it only has dual rather than triple rates (I don't like putting dual rates on a 3-position switch because it can be ambiguous) and I'm not keen on his approach to the rates setting. I'm conscious that the input and mixer settings are actually a case statement which drops through, so the last line in the list should always be the default with no conditionals (like switch positions or logical values). So my rate statements start with <low rate if switch is ^ > then <med rate if switch is - > and then the final statement would be just <high rate> [I prefer high rate for the default]. That way if the software misses something or if a switch glitches you end up in an explicitly defined condition. I just regard it as good practice.I've also attached voice messages to all the settings because I don't want to be looking down at the Tx to confirm whether I've hit the right switch. If you like I'll send you may OTX file for comparison.PDR
Quote from: PDR on May 15, 2020, 11:42:31 amTrue for us all, but I don't think it's an age thing. I think it's the mileage that does the damage...PDR
Quote from: RobC on May 15, 2020, 14:03:30 pm..., do you think that the higher expo would benefit a heli tyro?
Quote from: PDR on May 18, 2020, 13:53:26 pmMy biggest problem is that I'm crap at flying helis!PDR
Quote from: RobC on May 18, 2020, 13:43:01 pmMy biggest problem is with arthritis which means I find it difficult to judge fine stick movements, for fixed wing flying expo helps in that aspect.
Quote from: Darkstar56 on May 18, 2020, 17:18:59 pmWell I am glad someone else is in my league. I am crap and also don't get enough practice.One thing it has done for me is taught me to use rudder when fixed wing flying so that has been an unexpected bonus.Maxg
Quote from: paulinfrance on May 18, 2020, 18:53:27 pmGlider flying is even better, it teaches you to coordinate all the commands for heli translation,,
Quote from: Darkstar56 on May 18, 2020, 19:05:08 pmNot if you learned to fly on 2 channel slope machines. Either Rud/Ele or Ail/ele.
Quote from: paulinfrance on May 19, 2020, 06:20:05 amSo haven't you ever flown a 4 + channel glider in your life ?.
Quote from: Darkstar56 on May 19, 2020, 10:28:33 amPDR you are obviously on a different level of crap heli flying to me,
