Heli-Log 2:2:14

Posted 03-02-2014 at 02:50 PM by rcnut

I'm back! Sorry I've been gone for a while…a day shy of 3 months! So here we are in March! Come on warmer weather…go away snow!!!

A lot has happened in my absents. So I will get caught up on current events. I'll have one new heli build, a gasser conversion, a generator install on my Whippy and Trex 700N to G conversion, FVP Quad, a Whippy gas troubleshoot and fix, then how to keep my Whippy's flying!

Yea, I have a lot of material to cover! So stay tuned, more to come...

GPS Notes

2) rth brings heli back to a "fail-safe" altitude. Can this altitude be user configured? Is it the same as the deck altitude?

3. What happens...

4 flights. cyclic feels perfect.
Set 30 expo on tail in SK
30 expo on cyclic.
Blades quite loose in holders
one battery is dying. see vibe on skids as rpm drops at end of flight.
Vibe score=0.4 . on examination is very low (0.2 at 2600)but with spikes when flipping inverted. could this be the loose blades?
SL set to 150% . works fast but theres a big lean to left after doing flips and rolls.

Video is perfect. Best ever with no occasional shudder...
