Heli builds on the already capable 10SxII software, so
pilots familiar with the 10SxII will feel right at home
with the 10X. But in typical JR style, good enough is
never enough and several additional programming and
hardware features have been added.
Advanced Digital Trims:
While digital trims are an asset when used for airplanes,
they have an even greater benefit for helicopters. With
the 10X each flight mode's trim (normal, 1, 2, 3, 4, and
hold) can be independently adjusted using the digital
trim levels. Each flight mode has its own individual trim
values that are automatically selected in that flight
mode. Any trim changes made are automatically stored in
Advanced Digital Trims, trimming a helicopter in all
flight modes is easy and can usually be done in one
flight. First the pilot hovers the helicopter in normal
mode and adjusts the digital trims for a stable hover.
Then he flips into Flight Mode One and trims the
helicopter for hands-off fast forward flight. Flight Mode
Two can be set up for inverted hover, for example, so
switching into Flight Mode Two, the pilot adjusts the
digital trims for invertedhover. the pilot then shoots
some autos and trims the rudder so it stays straight and
gives a bit of down elevator trim to keep the nose from
ballooning. The remaining flight modes can be trimmed for
any desired maneuver. That's It!
each flight mode is selected, the trims for that flight
mode are automatically activated and displayed on the
screen. This sure beats stunt trims where you have to
land each time and, through trial and error, adjust the
trim value for each flight mode via the touch screen.
Rate & Expo:
The dual rate and expo values can now be adjusted
individually in each direction (Code 13). This allows the
pilot to independently adjust the feel and response of
roll, pitch and yaw in each direction. Three expo values
and rates are available for aileron, elevator and rudder.
In throttle hold (Code 16), a delay time of 1/4, 1/2, 3/4
or 1 second can be selected so that when the throttle
hold switch is turned off and the throttle is at a high
throttle position (a missed autorotation), the throttle
comes in more gently so the helicopter's drivetrain isn't
abused by the typical instant full throttle recovery.
servos hold" can be selected from the main screen.
In this mode, all the servo poistions are held regardless
of stick or flight mode positions. This allows the pilot
to enter the software and make programming changes while
the engine is running without having to worry about those
changes affecting the throttle (or any other servo's)
position, possibly causing an unsafe (throttle advance)
Tail curve(Code 47) now offers a programmable tail curve
in normal flight mode, in addition to the already
available tail curves in FM 1, 2, 3, and 4.
In swashplate mix (Code 65), aileron-to-elevator and
elevator-to-aileron are now separatley adjustable. In
addition, 2-servo 180°,and 3-servo 120° CCPM mixing
software is loaded and ready for use.
