Re-setup cyclic:
Move servos out on brackets and move balls out one hole.
Set swash travels to 125% and now get full +-12pitch and +-9.5cyclic.
Test fly and all ok.
Very windy and vibes 1.3 foirst flight, then 0.6 second flight ???
HF advises that DX6i Travel Adjusts have no effect on servo travel with SK.
Set DR 1 to 95% instead of 100 to stop possible interaction.

Flying: Loops bigger and better. Inverted - some in a straight line for 5 seconds...

  • replace feathering shaft and re-grease bearings.
  • set 260 cyclic control rates. no big difference
  • vibes =0.6 no change . good flights but see tail slight twitch. lower sk gov gain and its stlll there. go back to Ice gov.
  • set 280 cyclic rates
  • 2700 and 2800rpm

Tidy up ESC wiring. Maybe time to try SK Gov again.

3x flights all good. vibes less with loose blades.=0.6 no spikes on looses blades.
tight blades plus inverted =spike to3 to 6

now set to sk go . gain=20 as per anthony1 thread advice.

get 0.7vibes with spikes during inverted. need to be smoother on collective and have less blade farts

first flight with sk gov and no twitch on tail any more . no breeze either but all seems perfect....

new kbdd mainblades fitted

3 good flights. rpm 2600 - vibe spikes during loop. rpm 2800 vibe clean 0.6
Strange that vibe spikes occur only at lower headspeed during loops.

Adjust blades much looser so they can be just about shook down 5 degrees or so. Apply grease to blade root/grip area.Done

Loosen tail blades a little. Done

Back off pinion to main gear a little.Done

Move down collar on main shaft to remove slight up/down play.Done

Reduce damping gain on elevator to 1/3 hiller gain as advised on forum to help lower head speeds.

Go pro...
