This isn't my video as I have no video camera yet to film mine, but I enjoy this video and its flying. This is the style I fly!

Default Mattie-lodge flying trex 550 v bar

Mattie-lodge 550 V Bar fun
Hi All,

We had some good weather here in the UK recently and had a chance to shoot a quick video of me flying the Trex 550 heli FBL with a V bar fitted to it.

Very understated the 550 IMO!!!!!!!

Hope you enjoy it

Maiden flight of my 550 3g. I've never flown anything bigger than the Blade 400.

Get rid of the normal mode... or make it more linear... you notice the rpm's dropping when coming down.

What would you suggest the normal mode throttle curve be like?

Thanks.

If you already fly in an idle, i'd do that yes. but if youre flying(not hovering) in normal, than i wouldn keep as i said earlier

Whatever ur doing ur normal mode needs to be str8 curve,
Like 0- and 70s. Or 0 and 75s

Other wise you will have rpm changes which will make ur pitch control bumpy + will coz tail wag.

Thank you

rpm changes between 75 and 85 wont be that much. you're loading the head too i like having my normal around 0-50-55-60-65 so i know that i am in normal.. (inverted hovering doesnt work in normal..)

with a flatline you will almost get a bladestop if you use the 12 degrees pitch if you have it set for less than 70 precent. it will bog very much and easy not.
recommended to do such things in normal though.. but that line keeps the rpm's more constant, as you begin to give pitch, rpms will drop, that curve will prevent that a bit.

For all people that want to fly with the most constant rpm. use a governor. problem solved.

Maidened my 550e with BeastX. Was really windy but the bird was as stable as I ever could have hoped for. No trims or anything required. It just worked.

I got this crazy idea to film myself while I built my 550e. At the end, I time lapsed them all together and uploaded to youtube. I added a few tips as well. Probably not as many as you need to build the thing but I added a few of the things I got stuck on... like the direction of the frame bearings. It's long!
