On the chat page Barry come chat and i'll help you
Having been away from the helicopter scene for quite a while (about 15 years)I have bitten the bullet & purchased a Blade 450 what a brilliant model.
I have owned a Schluter Helibaby & Heliboy (think I am showing my age now).
I have not had any experience with computer radios before as you are aware the Blade 400 comes with Dx6i computer radio.
In the Blade 400 manual there are setting for intermediate & advanced flyers.
Can anyone help me with a full list for novice flyer, namely a full adjust list for myself for easy hovering & control of the 450?
Namely d/r & expo’s, throttle curves & pitch curves.

Hi Barry and welcome to the Forum, you might want to have a look at Tony's Video here on complete setting up of the DX6i TX
Then also have a look at Tony's Flight School Videos too,

HK-450 GT Full cnc alloy | HK-450 CX cnc Head Assembly
HK-450 BB x 3

I would start out with the stock settings that are geared towards beginners, or intermediate flyers. They will be the most stable, although there is nothing stable abotu a collective pitch helicopter. It's like trying to balance a marble on a sheet of glass.
In my videos, pay attention to the DR and Expo settings, cause you will want to use them to help with hovering. Just let us know if you have any other questions, we are all here to help you. and I know that I have not been on here much lately, but I hope to change that here soon.
Please DO NOT PM me to ask questions. Post them in the forum so that it can help other members in the future.

Im not that great at it myself, but if I can help just let me know.
Just heard from HH who say just centre the flybar.
Thats what i will try.
I was not sure if your request was completely answered, but here are a few suggestions I used when first starting out which tamed and worked for me. Assuming your B400 heli is set up correctly.
Normal flight mode position "0" Throttle curves : Hovering L= 0% 2 = 25% 3 = 55% 4 = 70% H = 70% You don't need all that power when first learning.
Stunt flight mode position "1" " " Circuits L = 0% 2 = 25% 3 = 55% 4 = 75% H = 85%
Normal Pitch Curves Position "0" hovering L = 50% 2 = 55% 3 = 60% 4 = 65% H = 70% Range is +3 to + 7 degrees of pitch..check with pitch gauage.
Stunt mode Pitch curves Position "1" : Circuits L = 30% 2 = 42% 3 = 55% 4 = 70% H = 80% Range is 0 to + 9 degress of pitch " " " "
Dual Rate & Expo: Position "1" Aileron = 55% expo INH to get feel of stich sensitivity but if prefered use 15% Expo
Elevator = 45% expo INH Ditto
Rudder = 45% expo INH Ditto
Position "0" Aileron =80% Expo +20%
Elevator = 75% Expo +20%
Rudder = 70% Expo + 15%
Hope this helps get you started ok.
Thanks for the information very helpfull.
