    RE: Honeybee King v2 tuner shop

    Kelownan Nice man post some pics when you get one done, like to see it. I thought about trying that with vacuum molding some Kydex at work but I am too busy with my bike project in my spare time.

    Well since I had quite a few stock esky belts I decided to try an HBK3 pulley since it was only $4. After lengthening the slot on the tail boom about 1/8" it fit right in there. Added some trex tail blades in dayglo orange per joizeex suggestion and it holds MUCH better....if I had a better/faster servo on the tail it would probably be ideal.

    Joey Since I am due for new set of batts for my king I think I will give your find a try, they seem fairly light for the size. My last ebay/chinese batts far out performed both my esky and the zippys I have tried, especially in longevity. I think going with higher c ratings sure won't hurt either. thx for the link!

    RE: Honeybee King v2 tuner shop

    can anyone recommend an el cheapo optical tach? i usually don't tune the heli by headspeed, just by how much response i need from it, but i would like to know what speeds i'm dealing with, for when i change my tuning. i've seen a bunch of them around, but since it won't be something i'll use a lot, i don't wanna spend a lot.
    this one any good? http://www.helihobby.com/gb/h/hcap04...achometer.html

    RE: Honeybee King v2 tuner shop

    I have this one (http://www3.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin...&I=LXPX81&P=ML). Same concept as the one you pointed out, but it's been working for years. I think it's still on the original set of batteries, too .

    You might think about the prismatic ones, though. The one I have (and that you pointed out) are more intended for fixed wing aircraft to check the prop speed. They work for helis on the ground, but if you get into bigger ones, it's a little nerve wracking to get it in a position to measure the blades (large heli, blades at flight speed... don't want to come in contact with that). The prismatic ("optical") tachs like the Skytach are more expensive, but arguably safer.

    RE: Honeybee King v2 tuner shop

    oh yea, i've seen the optical ones for like $100+. the concept of matching the spinning disk speed to the rpm's is pretty neat. i think i'll just have a friend stand with the hobbico one and stretch out their arm lol.

    no, but in seriousness, i held my HBK in my hand before at hoverspeed, so i can do it that way. it's also pretty stable to let it hang in the air while i quickly reach out and capture the rpms. for my nitro, i think i'll just stick the tach to the tail and take off into a hover, since the power doesn't shut off for 5 mins.

    RE: Honeybee King v2 tuner shop

    Hey guys,
    My (old) blades are balanced, trying to track them...
    When spooled up, red is high, blake is low with close to 5/8 difference between
    them at the tip. With half a turn of the link downward (red) the blade appears underneath the black
    one. And if I turn the link upward half a turn (red) it ends up over the black one. I've turned the
    hov/pitch knob, sometimes they come together as tracked. Spool down, then spool up again
    and the blades aren't tracked at all, and with that space between them (5/8in). Are the blades
    really gone or is there a broken part that I missed. The head turns ok, no wooble, nothing
    seems out of sink.
    Can't compare with other blades, they're somewhere in the mail.
    What do you think ?
    Sly.

    RE: Honeybee King v2 tuner shop

    I've had this problem and found that turning the link to swash rather than the link on the main blade grip works well. Give the high blade a half turn up on the link going down to the swash. If that doesn't work, you may have a slighty bent feather shaft or maybe a bad bushing in the head. Have you had any crashes latey?

    also, grease up the rubber dampers. especially if you're using a CNC head.

    RE: Honeybee King v2 tuner shop

    Its all relative, you might say I crasked but I say "it fell", the pinion (motor)
    separated from the main gear at about 3, 3 1/2 feet from the ground landed
    on wet and soft soil. Anyway, the heli is straped down, spooled up, no woobles
    nowhere, paddles are horizontal and straight. I did not know that to track blades
    turning swashplate links or upper links mattered, does it ? Everything that needs
    to be oiled or greased, is and no cnc. So I'll check the feathering shaft and the
    bushing (as soon as I find it).
    Keep you posted,
    Thanks

    I looked it up in the instruction manuel in the exploded view and I truly
    don't see anywhere a bushing in the head. Can you help me here Joey ?

    When you take the feather shaft out there should be some sort of rubber bushing in the rotor head.

    RE: Honeybee King v2 tuner shop

    if it's not CNC, then the stock bushings are soft enough that they don't need any grease really. the 2 bushings/dampers that we're referring to are O shaped and sit inside the yoke (main plastic piece to which everything mounts). the feathering shaft goes through those O bushings.

    if you trace those 2 long links, you'll see that they go to the mixer arms, which are connected to blade grips, that's why they matter.

    RE: Honeybee King v2 tuner shop

    well here are some pics of my finished Dragonus. haven't maiden it yet because i don't have the micro crystal for the Berg Rx. you can see that tiny 8g Rx as a little blue box inside at the back. in the same pic i included the remote for the Scorpion commander 45A ESC and you can see the IR receiver unit used to accept the signals from the remote. the motor is scorpion 3000kV with 12T on 2200mAh 25C Outrage batteries. Got a great deal on everything with Rusty (betapilot). the last pics are to show size comparison. Dragonus is just slightly bigger than HBK. There's also my Walkera sitting on top of HBK.

    RE: Honeybee King v2 tuner shop

    Replaced the feathering shaft and tracking is better, the blades
    don't go underneath on an other when I ajust the links, still
    some space between the blades maybe 3/8's. But will ajust
    precisely tomorow.
    The old feathering shaft did not have an apparent dent that
    I could see. Even as I rolled it on a glass. I put in a
    stronger feathering shaft (and they're a bit longer).
    Thanks for the info. [sm=thumbs_up.gif]

    examine the head very carefully...the ball control arm set has a piece that often strips in a 'hard landing'...you can tell when the hex screw keeps turning...ken

    Hi
    went to ajust the tracking a bit better. And they're doing as
    they did before, getting on top or below on an other, without
    never being tracked.
    Ideas are welcome.

    If you are not using turnbuckles then you should be, the stock links and ends are adequate at best when it comes to fine tuning. Also, what throttle range are you tracking these blades at and what blades are they?

    If you are using turnbuckles, make sure they are installed in the proper orentation. I once had a problem like this and discovered that one of the turnbuckles was installed upside down and when trying to track the blades I was turning the turnbuckle the wrong way[&o].

    Throttle range.... I got a stock esky tx, esc is default on everything
    I got tired stock blades 275Mm, waiting for new ones.
    And I've got crazy old links, you know. As for turnbuckles didn't
    know such a thing existed. [sm=drowning.gif]

    by range I mean are you trying to track them at 30% throttle or 70%?

    Sorry, don't have all the heli terms registered and if I do

    I track them at 1/2 stick.
