No CCPM here, but the standard mix option sure works well.

I have one, and I 've set up both an HPM and SWM. I prefer the SWM.

Give Jeff Green a call. He can hook you up.

Mine is the HPM version, if was buying another I'd definitely try the SWM version.

I have the SWM and would buy the HPM or a Raptor if I could do it again.

Hey Hully
I did the ccpm mod on my evo this summer. It is fantastic... Way more collective snap. I found that the collective is also smoother... Mine doesn't appear to have any interaction at all. I am using jr 8311 servos, OS 50 hyper with the quite mp2.and cp 30. I tried the new hatori 50 size pipe and it doesn't make as much power as the mp2. Also I run a gv 1 and set the head speed at 2000 rpm....Way too much fun! I called Jeff Green and ordered it directly from him. The only complaint I have is that the conversion didn't come with instructions. A guy named mr noodles on runryder had the manual scanned into his web site witch I downloaded and used that. The ccpm mod is very neet and tidy and certainly looks like it belongs...Typical Hirobo stuff. I am completely sold on the mod and if I build another I won't hesitate to do the ccpm again.
Hope this helps
Scott :glasses2:

My CCPM conversion set should be here this week. I'm hoping to get it together before the weather gives out completely.

I've seen two CCPM Evo's fly and they are certainly impressive when it comes to collective response. Both pilots also did not report any interactions present at the swash.

Anyone have a part number for the eCCPM conversion set?

Thanks,
Angelo

Is this what you guys are talking about?

If so, it's only $80 from Rick's. Or am I missing something?

Bimmer, that looks like it to me also.

I was toying with the idea of doing the CCPM mod myself, but this bird flies exceptionally well without it. Right now I'm running 9252's on cyclic, a 9250 on collective, and my EVO handles nicely. And actually, it's probably a little faster on collective than a CCPM set up would be with 9252's, isn't it? I think the speed on the 9250 is .11ms/60*...which is a hair faster than 9252's. And torque is definitely not an issue becaue I think it's somewhere in the 70 oz/in. range...I guess I'm just trying to find a reason to not throw $80 into something that may be of no real benefit. If anyone can convince me otherwise...I might try it. It's hard though, when there's a possibility of losing some collective 'snap'. Arguments :?:

I had the opportunity to fly a eCCPM Evo the other day at our local field. Personally, I didn't see it as a huge improvement over my manual set up. At least not enough anyway to convince me to deal with all of the radio mixing and servo matching required for a eCCPM setup instead of the mCCPM setup. If I had $80 to spend and wanted more collective authority, I'd buy a Futaba 9350 or Airtronics 94758Z for my manual setup before trying the eCCPM version. Better yet, if the heli is already flying great for your current skill set, why not spend the $80 on fuel and enjoy that extra time in the air

Some folks love eCCPM though so it's nice that Hirobo gives you the option of using it.

Well, my initial results with the CCPM conversion were less than stellar. It went together easily enough, everything moves freely with no slop or binding, but I did wind up with a bunch of interaction on the cyclics with collective movement. I worked with endpoints and mixing to try to eliminate as much of it s I could but I haven't been able to get rid of it completely yet.

There is definitely more collective authority on CCPM, and this is coming off using a KO 2123 on collective at 7.4 volts with the standard setup, but it didn't feel quite right in the air with the interactions. I'm thinking I must have gotten the linkage geometry wrong for this to be happening.

I switched back to the standard HPM setup for now, there aren't many good flying days left this season and I just want to go out and enjoy what's left. I'll put the CCPM back in during the winter and see if I can't get it working better for next season.

I think I'll just keep running what I have been, until I win the lotto or somethin', and have nothing else to spend my money on except a CCPM upgrade.LOL...If it ain't broke...why fix it?? LMAO... :twisted:

Hey Rob,
Were you down at Mac's? I don't remember meeting you, but people keep telling me they thought you were there...
