Indirect head setup
Scorpion HK2221-8 with a 14t pinion

Was using 401 now with Spartan DS760

A little aggressive, locked in feel and tracks well. I know it wants to be thrown around vigorously.

Viper

you set the servo movement and swash mix in the SK. Make sure you are in single servo collective in the TX, then set the servo direction in the SK software, next set the swash mix.

I have very good equal rolls between the elevator and aileron. Making good power and tracks really well in FF. I still have a little work to do on the pirouetting portion, but no complaints here!
I had my dampening gains down to 16 (elevator) and 13 (aileron) and Hiller Decay was at 100. Raising them up calmed the heli down so I could take down the expo in the radio.
