Tail keeps going to the left

Posted 11-12-2008 at 10:37 AM by Prinel01

I replace my main blades on my Blade 400. Now the tail keeps going to the left???

What did I wrong - did I put the main blades wrong side on?

PLEASE help!!

Miscellaneous Ramblings

Posted 11-10-2008 at 12:00 PM by skigolfmike

This week I put the new elevator lever on my T600NP and test flew it, I finished building an F3P indoor foamie and went to an indoor fly-in.

The elevator lever test was interesting. First of all I could not get the engine to run. Turns out I had fixed a leak in the pipe header and it was 25* colder, so I was way lean. Then the heli was way out of trim, needed 8 clicks of down, to trim it. Worked great once I got it trimmed and the engine running reliably. Being that far out of...

increased cyclic throws on protos

Posted 11-10-2008 at 11:22 AM by akshaw

A few weeks ago let Pete Campbell try my protos. He said to fly 3D cyclic throws need to be increased to the point that the ball on the swash doesn't show when the stick is pushed to the limit. So I adjusted throws today and tried it out. The flip rate was incredibly fast! Where before it seemed sluggish going over, now it reminds me of how my trex flipped when I had it on a 4S setup.

Crashed and Resurrected

Posted 11-04-2008 at 01:49 PM by skigolfmike

It had to happen sooner or later because all helis that get flown eventually crash. This time it just happened to be my T600NP. I barely got 2 gallons of fuel through it, so it was still pretty new. Yeah, it was a bad crash too.

Basically, I tried a tail slide, got it too far away and lost orientation in the push out. I thought I might have it saved when it went inverted, but full negative didn't really do anything because it was still kind of sideways. Damage was the blades,...
