12.6. FP & CP helicopter swashplate setup part 1 - swashplate type


Note: For this step, disconnect the motor wires from the ESC. This will prevent the motor from accidentally spinning. Do not rely on the Throttle Hold function.

For the Hitec Eclipse 7 using 90 CCPM, see the special note in the transmitter section.

Configure the swashplate type using your transmitter manual.

For a fixed pitch 90 degree swashplate, it is possible to configure this as either a "plane" configuration where there is no swashplate, or as a helicopter with separate pitch/roll and collective servos, and ignore the collective channel.
