Default New to Collective Pitch..

iv got a Super Cp with a devo7e. Can someone point me in the direction of a set up guide?
Or maybe share their radio setup? I've been messing with them myself. But, to be honest.
I'm not entirely sure what I'm doing! It does fly, kind of. But the tail rudder only pops on occasionally. Any help would be appreciated.
Thanks in advance, :-)

I think I've sorted out the tail rotor problem. I have to let it spool up a bit before lifting off.
But I have another question now. When I put anymore than 20 -30 degrees of rudder to it. It wants to tip into the turn and start to track in that direction. Is this normal for collective pitch? I've been flying my Msr for a few months. And can do a couple pyros across my room.
But as of now. I can't imagine even trying them with my Super Cp!
Thanks

Yes, this is normal.
Fast piros are no problem, but slow piros take months of practice to learn.
Try turning up the gyro a bit to make it a little stickier.
And get outside, there is only so much you can learn trying to fly this indoors. You spend more time trying NOT to hit the walls and not enough time expanding your envelope.
Try doing a search, there are many posts here on TX settings. Also, don't be afraid to start with the manual recommendations.

Thanks for the reply. As there is a few inches of snow on the ground. I wont be flying outside anytime soon. I also burned out my main motor. So another is on the way.. Thinking of going brushless next.

The super motor is just fine.
It does burn out quick, but it is cheap and it is a quick switch.
Try to give it 5 mins between flights. It will still burn out, just not so quickly.
I have two Supers and a brushless Mini.
I just alternate between the Supers when I fly them to let their motors cool.
The mini only gets 4 mins on a good day and has something wrong with it right now, so I have been flying the Supers as of late.
Again, the stock motors are fine for learning. Unless you just want to tinker and mod, then (by all means) make it brushless. Ain't nothing wrong with tinkering and modding, it's half the fun.

Couldnt agree more Matt! I popped the new motor in. Works just fine! Not too Worried about battery life, I have a few. But it looks like brushless. Will be my first upgrade in this one!.
I do fly my Msr a lot better now too.
