    My team captain for GAUI used to fly for Graupner, so he should know how to help. I will get hold of him today, and let you know what he says. It might take a day or two for him to get back to me. But I`m sure we can get it sorted. :)

    Without looking into it my guess is servo reversing. Swp could be swap witch to me translates to direction.

    Roger, I am not very versed in the Graupner. I almost bought one.

    here's the full copy paste of the paragraph .
    Swp cyclic travel 8
    50-125, default setting: +80
    Set the Swp cyclic travel 8° if the menu value is activated so that the
    rotor blade located above the tail tube is as accurate as 8° by full rollover
    stroke. To do this, the field must be selected (highlighted field)
    so that the swashplate can be controlled and adjusted in direct mode
    when gyro gain is switched off. This is the only mode in which the
    travel can be set correctly.
    It is very important that the travel is set correctly. It plays a major role
    in terms of acquiring the correct gyro gain.

    After reading that my guess is that you have to teach the gyro 8° just like a beast x. That's not a radio function. Thats a gyro function.

    swp cyclic travel 8 in manual 50-125 default setting of +80 .--- in transmitter it reads swp travel 8 , 8 d. if I did this right leveled my rc logger digital pitch gage 2 . zeroed out on top of motor . the only place I could find that it would not rock around . attached it to the rotor blade parallel over the tail boom. set default to +53 for -8.0 on gage I think that this is right . what do you all think.

    Here's a new one. same transmitter . graupner mz-12 pro . axis assignment page . first picture . do set up: yes , roll
    : +2 ,nick[push]+0 ,tail:[right +0 .second picture do set up no roll
    : +2 ,nick :[push]+1 ,tail
    :-3 I could not enter any of the values buy yes or no then I tried shutting off the yes and no a couple of different times . then got roll +1 and tail +1 and 0 for nick. now charging battery in transmitter thinking that maybe it was to low to change the values . will change battery in helicopter since the battery in the helicopter also powers the receiver that has the gyro in it . this process is how you set the gyro to keep swash plate level when you fly the helicopter any ideas . after you get the values set then you roll the helli to the right by 45 deg, tip the nose and turn the tail to make the nose turn 45 deg . what a pain in the donkey.​
