RE: Newb has 2 new questions for each thing learned

Okay...lets start with the swash. Look at the cyclic servos that move the swash when mid stick on the throttle, motor unplugged, linear curves on the radio. The arms on the servos should be at 90...

RE: Newb has 2 new questions for each thing learned

Not true! Way too much information to digest all at one time. Go by the feel of the heli for now. Tighten the blades like you think they should be tightened. Don't worry about dual rates and expo...

RE: help me

Take a deep breath, don't be in a hurry and don't get discourged. The TB effect means something is out of balance or bent. You need to go over the entire heli and this is the time you invest in...

RE: NO SIM FOR MAC??????

Seems like everything is built around the PC platform. If MAC was ever gonna dominate it would have done so by now. Get a PC, it plugs into the world.

RE: New Pilot with Blade 400

RE: building helicopter

Beginner? More information is needed. Probably would help to post your experience if any. I found messing around with the smaller stuff first helps you out. Learn to repair that stuff, it will help...

RE: HoneyBee FP receiver antenna wire

I have several 72MHZ heli's and shortened the antenna, both the receiver and radio. Google Tony's flywire for Helicopter (receiver) and Smileys for the Tx if you want to shorten that. I can say they...

RE: Questions about purchasing trex 500

I love the 500ESP. I am almost finished the build and can not believe how well everything is beefed up. I didn't realize how much was involved in programming especially with the DX7, not hard but...

RE: Belt-Cp Question

Okay, I'll accept that. It felt really intimidating the first few flights after I could actually fly it. Now it seems more like a rock with less response. I guess a better 450 is the next thing....

Belt-Cp Question

I've been flying this for a few months now and beginning to notice the forward and reverse cyclic is not as responsive as the micro's. Is this normal cause it's a larger heli. Sometimes it feels like...

RE: Giving up on flying

Yeah...don't give up. If your a little frustrated let it go for a while then go back to it. Your gonna crash but chaulk it up to part of the learning process. If it were easy everybody would be...

RE: Repair Honey Bee Paddle Control Frame?

I've seen that done, a small pin, it may have been a straight pin that they used. I haven't done that myself but it looks like it will work. I believe they used some thread and CA wrapped around the...

RE: Esky Honey Bee

I'm using a stock motor right now with 11.1 Volt pack. One of the heli's is 1000mah battery. The extra weight means nothing with the 11.1 volt Lipo. I'm going to go brushless, have the parts but not...

RE: Esky Honey Bee

RE: FP/CP Heli question

RE: My first RC helicopter!

What just is it with this thing for flying? It is a bug indeed! I just ordered #6 and still going. Something about brain tease that taunts you into wanting more. Unable to tag along my heli's on...
