Hello fellow pilots.
As you may know I’m relatively new to quads and flying.
I started 9 months ago in july.
It took me too long to really grasp what was happening with my throttle curves and expo rates.
It is quite a challenge for me to read about “numbers n stuff” as my brain almost shuts down and won’t keep trying to learn for me.
I made these two videos for people like me.
Those who are talented in building and flying yet hit a road block when it comes to tuning because they seem to learn a bit more “hands on and visually”.
"when i do this, this does this."
seems the best explanation on what these videos are about.
Im sure there are a lot more precise and accurate interpretations of these actions,
yet these vids are only made to help one get a grasp on what is actually happening flight characteristic wise with these settings.
We all have different learning styles and mine seems to be a bit less evident in this hobby.
Because of this my talk of numbers are minimal.
Instead however we look at tuning by the simple shape and curve of the line.
A great thanks to sensei benidikt for his video on throttle curves,
as it helped me understand what a “hover zone” is.
Im first a pilot, then a mechanic.
The tuning comes in third yet it is a vital part of being a “successful” pilot to me.
Heres a way to be all three if one wants,
without the added stress of “numbers n stuff.”

There are much more precise explanations around my digital domain on this subject.
This is really just to help melt the brain block that can arise in “visual & hands on” type learners when attempting to get a grasp on whats happening to a model’s flight characteristics when one…
-With more expo the center may be nice n mellow,
yet the end zones of the stick movements are going to kick in faster and harder.
The end zones will reduce the total quantity to compensate for a more extreme curve.
-With more negative expo the center is touchy,
yet the end zones will be less mellow.
This can also can reduce in total quantity to compensate for an extreme curve.
-In throttle curve settings one can keep it on the “simple” setting instead of “dual rates & expo”.
This will make all throttle rates have the same curve.
In the vid i use the “dual rates & expo” setting and “link” the rates,
yet it yields the same result.
Thanks for watching.
