OICU812,
What head are you using?

also,
Quote:
6. ) I am 16.3mm out on stock 6 point futaba horn, setting these and finding one best to 90 is best done before mounting servos in the servo brick of the Protos, otherwise impossible. I tried 14mm and 16.3 is the one you want to use to get best cyclic and collective feel, note my cyclic ring and cyclic gain, you do not want to adjust these on the model as outside of those paramters gives wierd feeling due to Protos geometry, use your cyclic agility etc on main page for faster and feel.
I don't show 16.3mm is possible on the 6-point futaba arm. Did you mean the 4-point arm?

I am on 16.3 out on the 4-point arm with the stock conversion head and I am getting much larger throws (72 give me 13.5 degrees) and much smaller cyclic ring (60) and gain (85).

I am running 9650's.

Also, are you sure you are using the 6-point arm at 16.3 out?

I'm sure of distance as I measured when I did the post and yes 9650 as first post mentions. I don't have heli anymore to look at which horn but that's the distance and with those servos it was perfectly fine with my file here yes.

***EDITED** YES I am running 9650 servos on Protos.

FYI, your first post says you used 9650 servos.

Thanks for posting up all the info though. I definitely plan to try your settings once I get the Protos back together after the tail spontaneously disassembled itself a couple hundred feet up. My previous setup was just nowhere near as precise as I wanted it to be, so I hope this will guide me down the right path.

Below the mainshaft. I made a shim out of a plastic paint scraper to go between the FBL unit and the bottom plate.

Works well....

I have the new swash driver parts on my FBL Protos and I'm trying to set it up. The BeastX instructions say to level the swash driver arms (just as one would do when setting up a FB heli), however, it looks like swash would have to get really high before the driver arms are level.

Anyone else have the newer swash driver arrangement and can comment?

Forget leveling the arms. That is different from heli to heli.
Protos doesn't have the arms level at 0 pitch, so you can't go that way.
Just put hte links at the recommended lenght and level the swash.

So the arms of the new and improved MSH swash driver don't level at zero pitch? That's a little disappointing. No, it won't make or break the system but I would argue that it should be level at zero pitch. If it's not then throws will be uneven at full deflection. This could lead to out of phase conditions at extremes which could show up as off axis piros, flips, rolls and loops. Watch for these and please let us know if you're experiencing any of it.
