Trims
Item Explanation
E.Limits (Extended Limits) Extends servo movable range of OUTPUTS screen to 150% (1500 ± 768 μsec) (standard is 100% (1500 ± 512 μsec)).
For color display / touch panel models, this setting is located on OUTPUTS screen .
E.Trims (Extended Trims) Allows trim to cover entire stick range (standard trim adjustment range is ± 25% of the stick range). Select [Reset] to set all trim settings to zero.
Show Trims (Display trims) When YES/ON is selected, the trim setting will be displayed numerically whenever the trim is non-zero. When CHANGE is selected, the numbers are displayed only immediately after the trim setting value is changed.
Trim Step Specifies the amount of increase / decrease in trim when trim button is pressed. [Course] 1.6%. [Medium] 0.8%. [Fine] 0.4%. [Extra Fine] 0.2%. [Exponential] 0.2% near the center, and the step value increases exponentially as the distance from the center.
Throttle
Item Explanation
T-Reverse (Throttle Reverse) Inverts the throttle increase / decrease direction. That is, 100% when the stick is at the bottom and -100% when the stick is at the top.
T-Source (Throttle Source) Select an input to use as a throttle. This is also the input actually referenced when THs, THt, TH% are selected as timer triggers. You can select [THR] throttle, [Sx] switch, [CHxx] channel, etc.
T-Trim-Idle (Throttle Trim for Idle) Set the throttle trim setting range from -100% to -51%. Used to control the idle value when using an internal combustion engine.
