    Does anyone have the gain settings that the Phantom ships with? Factory reset takes you to another place. I changed mine initially for carbon fiber props (which I have since decided are overkill) and I'd like to return to "normal" settings. (and yes I know I should have recorded these).

    I did pretty much the same thing, I don't know what the Phantom gains were originally, I clicked the "default" button,
    and don't really think that's what they were.

    I programmed mine to the settings recommended for the FW330, which is the same size as the Phantom, and it works well.

    I really like my 9" carbon fiber props, so smooth.

    BASIC GAIN: Pitch = 140 Roll = 140 Yaw = 100 Vertical = 110

    ATTITUDE GAIN : Pitch = 140 Roll = 140

    What does adjusting the parameters do?
    What "gain" are we adjusting when changing these settings?

    I'm trying to grasp it all as well,
    I'm definitely flying a heavier Phantom than stock (added a gimbal), but really unsure what tweaks I can make that will make the Phantom fly smoother or more responsive.
    ..plus it's a pain to connect to the Naza and tweak things each time.
    ..and I never noticed the remote adjust.. wonder how I can do that (I have a Futaba T8J), tho using the additional channels already for Pitcha adjust and failsafe.

    I have a T8J also, switches DT5 and DT6 are available, then when you find a setting you like, disable them.

    My Phantom is really heavy now, and the setup I have works pretty well. "I'm happy with it anyway."

    I am using 9" carbon fiber props from Aerial Media Pros, and T-Motor MN 2214-11 kv920 Anti-Gravity motors.

    the T8J isn't very easy to learn, it's as if it's meant for people who already know how to use fancier transmitters.
    I set it up with my Phantom, but I had no idea what I was doing,..as I was just following the video directions.

    any recommended gain settings for say, a relatively heavy Phantom running regular stock props? (putting the Graupners on any day now, just trying to build up the courage!)

    I know exactly what you mean. I had the added disadvantage of having the T8J-A, and the switches are set up differently
    from the helicopter radio, So I would watch the videos and then try to apply it to mine.

    You will like the Graupners. I like my gain settings, but I'm running 9" cf props, and upgraded motors.

    I have seen other posts with numbers like these and up to 200/205. Is this referring to percentages? In other words 140%?

    what is happening by moving the pitch and roll to 140%?
