Hey Dave, first off, your starboard (right from rear) servo horn linkage looks to me like you need to turn it 1 1/2 to 2 turns cw to shorten it up just a bit. I noticed on take off if went left pretty fast. Lee

Recently when flying my 72mhz V3  the heli "hiccups" for a split second during flight like the RX has lost the signal.It wasnt far away and batteries in TX were full.Occasionally it does it for a longer period,say 3 sec.The antenna is 26 in.and not coiled or wrapped.I do have it strung back and forth in the tail but it goes not cross itself any where.Could be random interference or maybe my throttle pot has a spot on it.There is no predictable pattern to it,but it is about 2 yrs. old and has been crashed pretty hard before.I guess I should knock on wood cause it still flies pretty darn good.

where is everyone?

I know you can only read RCG right now ... but please do ... :D   I am jumping back and forth between forums, but nothing seems to happen anywhere. I am done with the preparations for the unveiling of the GREEN Machine (Friday ... or maybe Saturday) and I will leave as much stock as possible ... but you can read the long version on RCG :D

Hovered one battery with the newly rebuild CX3 in my apartment - which sucks, because it always ends in a crash :mad:

But it will be a nice feeling once I finally get to do the pictures ... thanks again to Jim, who's work I will proudly present to the world when I give you all ...



...             The GREEN Machine ...   (on Friday ... or Saturday ....)

Hi dave,

Glad you're here.  I saw your first video of you flying.  With more time and flying you will find that you will have the heli more stable.  In my opinion, I don't worry about whether the heli can hold a perfect hover.  You will never have perfect hover unless you tinker and adjust and etc etc.  Even then it won't be totally perfect.  Plus, when you crash all that time you spent getting it "perfect" will be wasted because most likely the heli won't be stable anymore as a result of said crash.  You will always be on sticks.  If you have an itch, forget about scratching it lol.  If your heli has tbe, yaw etc very very badly then yes, fix it.  If the heli is basically stable, just leave it and fly.  Oh, and loctite is your friend.

Sven, The Green Machine is finally here?  Now I have something to look forward to!  I can't believe it's finally here.

Razor, did you have to email Jim to get back on?  Did you get your subscribed threads back too?  How long was your ban?

Hi all.

check this out.

had upgraded to cnc head gear, and a small problem got worse. weeks later, simply going back to the old gear got back to being stable again. holds a pretty good hover now.

 

I suspect all the new spares i changed helped to solve the initial problem, and then getting rid of those   %^:mad:#$ cheap upgrades solved the rest of my problems!

 

Amazing.

 

flies like a jem now.

------------------------------------------------------------

 

i am actually still a super novice flyer, but im sure you guys can see how much better it is.

lee and some others were working over the problem with me before. think someone said the upgrades were not great.

 

ah well im up and cutting air again.

You will find that many of the "upgrades" that are out there are not worth it.  Some machining is not very accurate.  You really have to ask before you buy.  Just a money saving tip.

Jim speaks the truth, lol, me and airwolf have experienced this for sure, I have with many vendors already and I am a noobie............its hard to find good stuff, but for coaxes, if your looking for suggestions, tips, what stuff works and what doesn't, the guys in here are excellent for advise..........I have already learnt soooooo much from these guys in a few months and I am a noob! You're in good hands!

hey how do i adjust the rudder trim?

 

when at hover the trim doesn't have enough to stop the yaw. this would be the proportional right?

increase porportional and the adjustments the gyro makes are more sensitive, in turn giving the trim more effect right?

wrong?

something else?
