I just completed the carbon fiber frame transfer on my king III and now my pitch is way off,over 12 degrees in full + and at mid stick in idle up its about 5 degrees. do I have to readjust my linkages or go into my tx,I'm using the dx6i . thanks for any help.

Thanks again frank26all,

It’s a shame the photo's are not a little more clear as it would show of the real beauty of this frame.

Mine is 11 degrees at full stick idle up mode off, or in the back position. It is probably well over 12 degrees after twisting the Hov’pit knob clockwise.

Trev.

Hi frank26all,

Your "Idle Up" pitch curve is usually balanced about a 0º centre position something like this for 5 points:
Low stick -10º Quarter stick -5º Mid stick 0º Threequarter stick +5º High stick +10º

The actual end points can vary between 8º~12º (check your manual here), but the center point is usually zero to give a smooth transition between +ve and -ve pitch in 3D work, with the quarter points half way.

It is also common - but not always - to have the top half of your "Normal" curves (pitch & throttle) matching the top half of the "Idle Up" curves so that there is no jump as you switch between them in upright hovering flight.

thanks tombo,but how do I get them to that point,is it simply a matter of adjusting my two linkages or do I need to go into the dx6i and adjust something.
