Pitch Curve & Pitch Travel

Posted 06-30-2015 at 07:50 AM by JonJet
Updated 07-10-2015 at 08:13 AM by JonJet

Pitch Curve allows a variety of response levels depending on the reaction desired from collective stick movement

A linear pitch curve (0-25-50-75-100) is generally accepted in most cases for Normal and Idle Up Modes

A Hold Mode pitch curve of 0-50-50-50-100 will allow a quick check of pos/neg pitch travel as well as being helpful during setup for zero-pitch without having to be specific on the collective stick

0 = maximum negative collective
100 = max...

Throttle Curves - Flat - V-Curve - Deep-V

Posted 06-30-2015 at 07:39 AM by JonJet

Generally, you would use a linear Throttle Curve in Normal Mode, and a flat curve in IU Mode(s)

Linear Throttle Curve - 0-25-50-75-100 provides a smooth transition through the entire throttle range

Flat Throttle Curve - 75-75-75-75-75 (or any level you desire) provides a constant headspeed to allow inverted and 3D flight

V-Curve creates a "dip" in headspeed to allow tail motors to "keep up" with the main rotor head (not recommended with...

Tail Motor Upgrades

Posted 05-28-2015 at 10:59 AM by JonJet
Updated 06-02-2015 at 05:42 AM by JonJet

We all know about the lack of tail authority with micro's...here's some suggestions that I've been using with great results

nCPX - 7mm tail motor w/125mm tail boom - 42 or 47mm tail rotor

mCPX - 7mm tail motor w/150mm tail boom - 45 or 47mm tail rotor
- Dual 6mm tail motors - 150mm tail boom - KBDD rotors

mCPX conv - 120SR (8.5mm) tail motor - 45-47-65mm tail rotor

In all cases, I've "reversed" the tail motors to add...

Tail Motor Reversing and added cooling

Posted 05-25-2015 at 07:56 PM by JonJet
Updated 05-25-2015 at 10:14 PM by JonJet

Here's a way to add a cooling effect to your micro's tail motor...especially if you are using a larger tail rotor

This mod will work on any blade micro - mSRX - nCPX - mCPX - mCPX BL

In this example, I show a 7mm tail motor being reversed for a nCPX or mCPX application

Just follow the pictures...and make sure you have proper (CCW) tail rotation
