To loose will cause problems with handling during sharp manuveurs. TO tight, and you may ruin
more components on the head during a crash. They should be tight enough so they don't move on there own, but loose
enough so that when a blade hits something it can give way.

how tight should i tighten the main and rotor blade?

Keep asking streetforce most people love to help, its bloody hard to learn your self as i am doing this forum has been great. I have been taking things pretty slow mastering the hover tail in in vital, walkera have a learn to fly step by step lesson on there china site im up to figure 8 tail in, weather has been blowen here in Australia so i've been staying close to ground not 3m above it, ive had one crash since start but it managed to break 6 different things oooch but all going good so far, i feel a long way off 3d so dont be in a rush un less you live close to a shop that sells 37parts and have a fat wallet.

basiclly heli is not stable....i think its b/c of the rudder....i noticed that the more throttle, the rudder tend to move...

isn't the rudder suppose to be flat during flight so the heli is stable?

if so then how should setup the gyro?

basiclly what do i need to do to have a stable flight?

streetforcegp2-

other people weren't talking about you. you're a good guy, asking good questions. we have another individual in the forum that likes to start fights with W37. if you read back thru this thread, you'll know who I am talking about.

W37 is a sharp RC pilot/builder who can teach us all a lot. He's always on the cutting edge of DF37 mods and he's always very helpful. Over the months I've come to respect him for his heli knowledge and lately for his patience with someone who is clearly mentally challenged.

keep it up Cepeda, I'm here for you buddy!

I,m with ya army thanks for the contined input, hat off to ya Cepeda.
Streetforce your heli tail is colectivepitch which means the pitch increases the faster the main blades are spining as so to keep the tail in one spot if the gyro is to sensitive the tail will track to the right (heli left) turn down the gyro a fraction may help im no expert but it would help to read this whole thread.

The first thing you have to do , is visually verify that you have the proper mecanical alingment on the rudder.
Always, turn on the remote control first, and make sure your trims are centered. (just for this test).
Swtich your gyro to the normal position. (not AVCS mode).

Apply power to your heli. Observe the following:
The rudder bell crank on the servo should be at least if not very close to 90 degrees, and also, the rudder blade positions should
be centered or close to it. If this is not so, then you need to mecanicly adjust either the bellcrank or reposition the servo
if you use servo mounts on the tail boom. What you need to accomplish is that when you apply power, that rudder
should be in the center position. IF you are flying indoors to learn, keep the gyro in normal mode.
Also, once you correct the rudder position, when you apply the power to the heli in with the Gyro in normal mode,
try not to move the heli for the first 3 seconds, cause the gyro will reset and initiate the new position. And remember
always turn on the remote first. If you have the stock hardware on your heli verify the remote control dip swtiches. Also, if the heli
spins uncontrollably, you may have accidently switched the REV/NOR switch on the gyro.

If the tail starts wagging left to right during hover, you may have the gyro sensitivity set to high, do what kiwiwilliamson suggested, bring
down the sensitivity until it stops wagging.

Good luck!

W37

Hey Jim, where did you get the camera? I'm thinking of doing it too. Of course I have to add it to my list.... GY401 gyro, DX6 TX/RX, CNC Head, etc., etc.

HI GUYS, Just want to say thanks for your support!

By the way, my friend decided to sell his DF60c we reviewed...but it did not sell, so I'm going to keep it as
an addition to my DF37.

The 1st thing I'm going to do is remove the crappy metal head and install a Align 450. With time... ofcourse.

I wonder is that crappy metal head and tail works on the DF37? hum..that would be something do try... cause that
head is inexpensive... and cost less then 60 bucks for the kit which includes the rudder too....hum.... at least it's better than
the stock plastic one....hum......I'm begining to feel a wind change says I... ARRGGGG!

Cepeda, let me know, because I've thought of buying one. I need something better than the plastic but don't want to shell out the $125 for the Sonix head.
