Thumbs up We have lift-off!

Well I'm happy to say that today I finally got my Spectra into a hover! Last night I installed a new S9252 servo for elevator and double checked my mechanical setup and my radio settings for everything. My pitch is currently set to +/-11 with 0 at mid-stick. Everything went really well and I made a few mechanical adjustment for my pitch linkage. Burned two tanks just hovering and checking setup. All my sub-trims are at zero and when I lift the heli off the ground into a hover I can actually take my fingers of the sticks for about five seconds and the heli will just hover there. It really makes you feel good when you know your heli is set-up correctly and you can hover hands-off without any stick input for a few seconds. Only question I have is, with a gas motor how much smoke should you have when flying if you should have smoke at all? I'm going off past experience with nitro's with how much smoke you should have when flying. I need to re-check my high/low needle settings but the TRM231 seemed to be running pretty smooth. Just not sure if I should be producing more smoke when flying. Looking forward in getting the heli in the air again. This Spectra is sooooo smooth and stable! This is my first gasser and I couldn't be any more happier! Thanks for everyone's help!

Gassers have far less oil in the fuel, so they smoke less.

That's about all I'm doing with it right now until my skills improve. I have a B400 that I'm waiting on that I purchased from another freak member. I had a B400 but I had a dumb a$$ attack and sold it.

congrads looks great. When I was flying the spectra very little smoke came out (pulled the plug after a tank to make sure it wasnt running too lean). No mess to clean up and very easy hovering.
good job
Jeff
