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...

MCPX Stretched Limo Project

Posted 06-01-2015 at 12:00 AM by JonJet

Just for kicks, I wanted to do a super-long stretch on a stock mCPX to see if I could get better stability with 130X blades...

Here's the setup:

mCPX w/stock brushed main motor - 8.5mm tail motor in reversed position
mCPX BL blade grips - rotor hub - FS
Solid CF tail boom 200mm w/stretched AD boom support kit & horizontal fin
Xtreme Productions 130X Red main Blades
Lynx 47mm tail rotor w/AD CF tail fin
AirTimeRC Landing Gear w/red Sharpie...

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

mCPX Main Blade Upgrade

Posted 05-20-2015 at 02:09 AM by JonJet
Updated 05-26-2015 at 05:45 AM by JonJet

Using the mCPX BL blades on a stock mCPX brushed setup sure gives an added amount of lift...and very little bog at all...using an extended tail and 7mm tail motor, no blowout that I can see

Sure helps flip and roll rates, and the feel of power is always there...I had it out in a light breeze last night and it was amazing
100-90-80-90-100 v-curve in IU on the TC - linear PC and 80% pitch servo travel seemed an awesome setup

For a bit more of a lift increase, try the...
