Blade Tracking G2
I have approximately 3 years of moving up the line of 2ch, 3ch, and 4ch rc helos. (kept telling myself no more, but couldn't pass up the Black Friday online sale and treated myself to the 6ch G2. However, I've discovered it is a much more sophisticated machine than I expected.
I have not flown it yet because I am trying to follow the recommendations of the manual, tighten screws, etc. I am stuck on blade tracking!! I have the helo tied down, power up and try to view the blades as suggested, but I can't tell if or which blade may be high or low!! I've probably made it worse by turning the control link screws both ways trying to get both blades an the same level track.
I've probably been better off if I had left tracking adjustments alone. I don't have anything to go by but there is a lot of vibration, whether the amount is normal or not.
My question is; is there another way to check the blade tracking, while rotating, other then visually (which I can't!!) or e.g., measuring the distance of each leading edge of the blade to the surface (power off)?
I just became a member today and this is my first post and probably won't be my last. Will appreciate any help on this matter. I'm anxious to start training on this "floppy wing".
