RE: .........

I have a DX6i, so the gyro settings should be the same. As you know, anything above 50% is considered head holding mode - below 50% is rate mode. I have Telebee's on both my Esky Belt CP and my...

RE: Instable belt cp when hovering

Check your head speed - also, what pitch do you have your blades? Around 5-6 degrees should be good for hovering. Rotor head speed is one of the main reasons for your helo going up and down, or...

RE: First successful hover!

Congrats on your first hover. I know the butterflies were swarming on the inside - I'll never forget that feeling. Just keep practicing, take baby steps, and you'll be hovering a full pack in no...

RE: .........

I ordered it from XHeli. Cost is $49.95. They have a wide selection of fuselages for 450 and 500 helos. That duct fan is cool!!!!!! A lot of money for that part, but if you want realism, that's...

RE: .........

Hello all!

I've been away for a while, but I just had to post a pic of my Belt CP V1 with my new EC-135 fuselage. This thing is HUGE, almost the size of my TREX 500!! Scale flying is so...

MY NEW TREX 450SE AFTER FIRST FLIGHT

Just put her in the air for about 5 minutes - flies like a charm. Solid, no shakes, steady hover. Added a couple of cosmetic items (tail boom, skids, fiberglass canopy) that adds to the look. Also...

MY TREX 500 PICS

I've had my 500 for approx. 3 months now, and I must say that it has spoiled me to the point that I don't fly my Esky Belt CP or ExceedRCRaptor much anymore. I useda little imagination and came up...

RE: ESKY LAMA 4 THREAD

Well, I've replaced the entire gear unit - main and inner shaft, both gears, and I still get the "wave" action, though not as severe. Blades are tracking true also. Oh by the way, I lost my...

RE: ESKY LAMA 4 THREAD

pgroom 68: I posted before I saw your last communicade. I went ahead and ordered another shaft and gear unit. I'll balance my bottom blades and see if that helps also. Thanks for your inputs - I...

RE: ESKY LAMA 4 THREAD

OK, I did the test and found out that something is wrong with the main shaft unit. Although it is not bent ( I upgraded to the metal head), the bottom blades track for a second, then not track, then...

RE: ESKY LAMA 4 THREAD

To pgroom 68: Yes, it's like a "harmonic" swing going back and forth, even when I'm not touching the cyclic controls! As I increase throttle, the swaying gets more erratic. As indicated earlier, I...

RE: ESKY LAMA 4 THREAD

Sorry it took so long to reply - I just replaced my inner shaft (which was wobbly), replaced flybar, and tried again. It flies better, but it still has a little "sway" when I'm flying - like it's...

RE: ESKY LAMA 4 THREAD

I purchased a 2.4Ghz Lama V4 for Xmas and ordered the metal head upgrade. Since installing it, this thing has been all over the place - the swash is too big for the canopy, so I trimmed as much as I...

RE: First Rebuild. The Raptor G2 Question.

To Bad400 - the G2 is not that bad of a helo. If you have a brushless motor and ESC, it's pretty fun to fly. The only thing is if a gust of wind get it, a crash is almost inevitable, since it is...

RE: First Rebuild. The Raptor G2 Question.

Yes - use the flybar as the guide. I went straight into 3d without venturing into coaxial, so go for it. The only way to succeed is to practice your craft - I did, and I still get butterflies every...

Switch any two wire connections btwn your motor and ESC. That should spin your motor in the right direction.

RE: g2 head speed

There is a way to check the speed control - you can unplug your current BL motor, have them hook up another motor and see if it has the same problems. If so, then you need another ESC. I recommend...
