    RE: HK-450GT CCPM Alloy T-Rex compatible - Part III


    ORIGINAL: sgbfly

    Hi Guy's!

    Bad luck on the crash kozzy. I love Ingleburns closing comment!

    Speaking of crashes. I repaired mine yesterday. I've gone for a simple colour scheme to see if that helps with the FFF ele bug in Tarot FW v3.5. Actually I've tried better radial bearings (Align HS1032T) in the grips and tighter genuine RJX dampers but I'm not holding my breath!

    A couple of pics...

    Simon
    Yeah Ive always heard that red goes faster so going with the white might slow it down.

    Just a thought Simon. As yours is the worst heli affected with the FFF bug, do you think it has anything to do with the HK head?

    Mine is not to bad now but I think Im reacting before it occurs by keeping a touch of forward Ele on it.

    I can't see how the HK head would be at the root of the problem. Bottom line is (imo) fw v3.5 does it and earlier firmwares don't! It's so frustrating as I can really tell a positive difference with the improvments they made in fw 3.5

    As for keeping a little forward ele on. Yes that helps to a point, until you want to start amaneuver like a loop and the heli snaps back abruptly all on its own

    Hi guys, check out www.aadexpo.co.za tab to Airshow and guess who will be flying the Ex SAAF Impala indicated in the Participating Aircraft tab on page two?

    Getting a few dry runs tomorrow (fuel for 40 minutes flying time)  with compliments from the sponsors as I can only be there on the airshow days.

    During last year's show a paratrooper put his rifle's barrel into the wing grounding me for the show. Love these shows as you see so many peoplemet over many years again. My wife hates it to watch me fly just as she hated it whenI usedto jump out of aircraft. She will only come along if I do not fly but I then end up flying along in some aircraft in any event and she sometimes joins me. She loves the Cessna jets.

    Hope to get a few minutes in our Rooivalk attack heli tomorrow as well, some pilot owes me big and it is time to pay up. This is the heli that makes "Airwolf" and a certain one called Apache (familiar) hide away.

    That sounds like a lot of fun. Dont suppose you could put a cam on and get some video?

    Keep the paratroupers away this time.

    @ Edmund, very cool and great you get thoseopportunities. Be safe but have fun
    @Jonsey, crashes are part of the sport but if I may make a suggestion...start hitting TH a few feet above the ground and let it land itself, it's much better IMO
    @Simon, 100% 3.5 problem....If I wasn't so chickensh1t to go that fast on my 500 I'd try but it goes WAY too fast for me. The 450 has the cx and flys great fast, slow hover hands off, it only has the bad 11 thumbs. And bad news, wasn't able to program the bug in Phoenix for tonights fly!
    @rb, yea, bushless is always nicer...brushless motors are better too
    @Phil, ready for some balloon bursting?!

    I cant for the life of me get Phoenix to run. Everythings there but nothing happens.
    Will have to try and find the disk and do a reinstall but the kids are driving me mad and have to get ready to take them out soon.
    Sorry I missed the action but will be better prepared next time.

    @ Ken - Glad the FPV ground perfomance is working well for you. As for me It's ALL I can do to not let my stuff fall out of the sky like a bag of wet mice flying normally! God speed to ya!!

    @ Simon - Glad you had a nice birthday flight! How old are you now?? I think you are somehow catching up with me???

    @ All - Would have loved to join the failed attempt at Phoenix but I got PM shift dropped on me at the last minute!! "20 days of nights" with Mon/Tue off! Grrrrrrrr!
    Upside is, I will be hoping a plane and heading to the North Carolina Mountains in Mid October!

    Gonna be horsing with my helis a bit Mon/Tues and hope to up some viddy blather!!

    Thankfully there was no stabilisation other than the pro to my left

    Speaking of 3.5, I will re-maiden my rebuilt heli today.

    Firstly Happy Birthday. Did you get some video of the heli hovering? And how different was it to hovering a 450.

    Is the heli being remaidened with 3.5 or the stock one. Im guessing the stock one.

    As for the the Phoenix crash I finally got it working.
    Seems that after the last Blathering session I shut it down with the field Ken picked still loaded.
    Once I changed to another field it was back up and running.

    Hugh and I went to the field yesterday and had a great day of it.
    Here are some of the highlights.
    Please excuse the shaky video, my son was filming on a Nikon coolpix camera, and it is hard to keep everything in frame while videoing.
    Hugh and his Gaui 425 Hurricane with the BeastX clone.

    and Hugh with his Hangar 9 Cub with a Saito 82

    Hopefully he will upload some video soon.

    RE: HK-450GT CCPM Alloy T-Rex compatible - Part III

    Far out,
    Okay, I had a main rotor blade let loose this morning and it was pretty cool. I was hovering
    three feet off the ground in front of my garage when all of a sudden SWUSH, a blade shot
    off and it looked like an arrow shooting from a cross bow. The blade flew 75 yards to the
    north...the heli was pointing east and I was sitting in my garage as this happened. Damage
    to the heli was minimal...one blade grip and a flybar that now resembles a twisted up
    pretzel. The blade let loose at the blade grip, the portion that the blade screw go's through
    was still in the grip. That blade sure did shoot out fast...WOW ! Just to let you all know, I was
    standing from the heli probably 40 feet.
    This will be my first repair to this heli after nearly 15 practice lessons, I'm proud of this one
    as for it wasn't my fault this time. Oh, I should mention that the heli is (was) a HK-450.

    Geez Roger, that sounds potentially nasty.

    Everyone,

    I got my HK-450GT rebuilt late last week and gave her a very gentle test flight this morning. So far so good and I'm glad a blade did not disconnect at 0.57 in this video...
