My Micro Beast Tuning Guide

Posted 02-13-2011 at 01:02 AM by nwmtech

I've had numerous people ask about MicroBeast tuning so here's the order in which I attack the tuning. Most of the time I've found I can get my helis about 95% dialed in within 5 flights using this method.

Tail Setup/Tuning:

1. Dial 3 in middle position and parameter menu item [D] (Heading Lock) to purple
2. I personally start with rudder ATV's at about 105
3. Control behavior to Transmitter mode
4. Rudder expo to 15% (personal choice)

Swap meet

Posted 02-12-2011 at 02:59 AM by nwmtech

Drove down to the RC swap meet in Monroe, WA tonight after work. Not a bad little get together. I have to admit most of the private vendors were nothing more than a bunch of old plankers selling their even older balsa planes but there were quite a few vendors there to keep the eye candy at an entertaining level. I ended up picking up a whole bunch of charge leads, battery connectors, 6s balance leads, and lots of parallel charging stuff for an up and coming project . I also snagged up a couple...

HV Hyperion servos

Posted 02-11-2011 at 02:46 AM by nwmtech

Made it out to the field today at lunch for a couple flights on the 700n. The N5 was tore apart patiently awaiting the HV Hyperion servos to show up. The flights were awesome and it was quickly evident my recent surge of dedication to sim time was paying off as it all looked much better than the last time I was out. Even managed to pull of a couple somewhat decent inverted pirouetting circuits.

Got the servos installed in the N5 and re-setup. Man, what a super clean install now...

Just realized I've been in the sport for a year and a half now. Wow, seems like a long time ago I was sliding that Blade CP Pro on training gear all over the elementary school outdoor basketball court. I have to admit I'm still as hooked as the day I started and my only regret is not having more people close to home to fly with.

On a flying skills note things have slowed down a bit this last month due to the weather but I like to write down where I'm at so I can go back later and...

A little Synergy bling

Posted 02-08-2011 at 03:02 AM by nwmtech

No flying this weekend due to a conflict of weather and spending all day Sunday travelling south to purchase a couple new vehicles.

It was like a small Christmas today though when the mailman came. Got my new Edge 603's, Synergy FBL head, and Custom CF tail case.

The head is really nice and was about 10mm longer than my Outrage head I had on there. Now Matt recommends running it on the lowest hole but since I like to experiment and generally run my heads as low...
