hi all,newbie here, i have a honey bee had it about a month,not seen it off ground yet,lolnot enough room in my home,just put it in shop to set the trim and everything else it needs,they phoned me and its ok flying good now and itcost £10 to set up, it should be worth it,then at least i know its me and not the chopper not doin it right,can anyone tell me what the throttle trim slider next to the throttle lever does and when should it be used,it does not seem to say anything on instructions,the reason it is in the shop is i watched a vid on youtube of a guy called dave herbert showing how to set up honey bee and tried to follow his instructions but forgot to discon main rotor connection and it flew off my desk and did a bit of damage,lol,hope to hear from you soon,this is prob first of many postings,lol all the best jimmy,

I keep the throttle trim all the way down for safety sake. Say you crash (& who doesn't Embarassed ) if you cut the throttle but forget to reduce the throttle trim to 0% it can short the batt pack or smoke the ESC before you know it. It's only purpose is to fine tune motor RPM in hover I think.

When flying in idle up mode and doing 3d is that ok to have trim at 0%?

In idle up mode your throttle is gonna most likeley be at like 90 to 100% regardless of trim, I don't get the question.
