A good place to start for a plane like this would be about 15% on high rates and maybe 5% to 10% on low rates on the aileron, elevator and rudder channels. You can adjust the exponential to fit your flying style from here, and it does not need to be the same amount for each channel. For example, I personally find I usually use less exponential on my rudder channel than my elevator channel, but again this is all personal preference.

I always found for a new heli that 30 to 35 positive expo for the first flight was a safe place to start and then bring it down from there.
You might also like to set your dual rates to say 70% just so it doesnt react too much once your "through " the expo so to speak.

Possible for some of the mini's. the mounting hub are different on some and remember the size and the motor has to match.

Hello :)
Yes you can! The four blade is smaller so you might notice some different flight characteristics with drag and weight

Question
How much nose weight is required to obtain CG recommended by the manual?
My Ultra Micro Spitfire Mk IX BNF with AS3X Technology required a seemingly excessive weight added to the nose to obtain the CG recommended by the manual. Is this normal? I am almost afraid to fly it with this much weight on the nose.

I found that getting the CG was tough, but even when I had it close to spot on after cutting a bit of foam of the front of the fuselage so the battery could sit more forward, it still flew a bit tail heavy. I adjusted the elevator push rod by spreading them until I had about a 1 deg rise on the elevator and it flies much better for me. I normally fly without gears because of all the grass around me with lack of paved runways.

I'm not completely sure why this plane was discontinued. i agree that this was and awesome little plane. you may have noticed that the larger, park flyer version was discontinued as well. i guess the logical reason is that horizon has to keep making room for all of the new products they are always bringing in..... by the way they still sell the spare parts for most discontinued planes.
Happy flying!
