Hey, send them to me and let me crash them a few hundred times and one writeup will be in the works!

Default Excellent Guide

Junkman - Thanks for the guide! Luckily I cam across it before I crashed it last night! Word to the wise, DO NOT increase the motor power until you have enough flight time. i came across an instruction guide on how to increase the motor power by 200% and it definitely works!

I have yet to have a need to increase my power, even with all the bling I installed. Put me with the fortunate crowd.

Thanks man. I tried a few times to get a representative from Horizon's tech department to look it over and make sure that it was accurate and add to it if necessary. That was over a month ago and they haven't responded to me yet.

Hi Fit For Life, I am not so fortunate as JunkMan. My 200SRX has very marginal extra power. I want to add a very small load and it just can't handle it. I have no need (or even any desire ) to get 200%, but 120% (20% more) would be nice.

Can you point me to the instruction guide you referenced?

Hey man I've read all of your guides, really helpful!
I got couple of small problems. My 200srx drifts a little to the left, I have my right aileron trim almost to the right (dx6i). No input miti aileron or whatsoever. Second, the nose turns left slowly, I don't know if this has something to do with the tail motor. I have my motor gain 200 and 13t pinion.
Lastly, the heli turns left fast and to the right very slow.. Probably has something to do with my trim all the way to the right.
Let me know what you think.

Best
Jayson

I'm assuming that when you say your bird drifts to the left that you mean that it is drifting left with the tail end FACING YOU. If not, my instructions are going to be backwards. Here's what you need to do. First, look at this picture:



Now, follow these instructions to correct which ever drifting issue you have. The following instruction address your left drifting issue.

1. Make sure that your battery is DISCONNECTED from the helicopter.
2. Turn on your DX6i.
3. Run the aileron trim setting ALL the way to the LEFT.
4. Connect the battery to your bird and let it initialize.
5. Start flying your bird and adjusting the aileron trim to the right until it no longer drifts left and stays centered.
6. Land the bird and DISCONNECT the battery.
7. At this point, center the aileron trim on your DX6i. Make sure that it is dead center.
8. Reconnect the battery to your bird and let it initialize.
9. Fly your bird again. At this point, your bird should stay centered and you will now have full access to your left and right trim range. This same procedure works using the forward and backward trim adjustment to keep the bird from drifting forward and backward. If your bird ever does a HARD drift in any direction, you need to do a linkage adjustment, which I cover in my first post.

This is the same exact situation. It has nothing to do with your pinion or gear, you just need to trim out the nose adjustment as you did the left drift adjustment. If that doesn't make sense to you, let me know and I will post pictures. The nose trim adjustment is the one just below your throttle.

That's exactly why it's doing that. Now you know how to recenter the trim adjustment so that you can eliminate that issue.

It's clear to me now and I will try that as soon as I have a chance then I'll update you guys so everyone would know how it turned out. Thanks Junkman2008!

Hello Junkman2008! I did what you said and it definitely improved the flight characteristic of my heli but I still had to put trimmings. I have less trimming now and the heli flies better.

Should I try new servo?

I don't understand what problem you are still having. What's wrong with it now?

It flies great now. I just have the aileron trim half way to the right to make it hover in place but I guess it's normal to have "some" trim in the transmitter.

Okay, so what happens if you disconnect the battery from the bird, center the aileron trim, plug the battery back up to the bird and start flying it? Does it still drift? If so, in which direction with the tail facing you?

With the tail facing me it drifts to the left. Not as hard as the last time but still noticeable.

Okay, try this. First, run the trim to the right and see if it stops drifting left. Next, unplug the battery and set the trim back to center. Then, switch to intermediate mode (I know it's much harder to fly in), and try to hover. See if it drifts right instead of left. Lastly, put the bird on a table, plug up your battery and after it initializes, take a eye level picture of the aileron and elevation servo linkage arm. The pictures need to be EYE LEVEL. Post them here. If it is easier, make a video of those linkage arms and post it here. Remember, EYE LEVEL.

Oh man i'm such in a bad luck! I flew my heli today and the tail motor started to work really hard and even stopped at some point. Landed the heli down safely and now it smells like something is burning. Tail motor hot, tail boom hot.. WTH?!

You have the tail blade on BACKWARDS. You'll be lucky if you didn't burn up the tail motor.

No.. I've read a lot about the tail blade and I have it correctly. :-(

Then I would be pulling that motor off and inspecting those wires for shorts. See this thread.
