Default A bunch of problems and solutions with the 700e

Have a look at the video. When i do over 50% collective the clyclic has almost no movement. And when i use the elevator it moves the whole swash up or down.

My friend i hate to say this but put that thing on the shelf and learn about the basics of flybarless system setup. Your heading for disaster. Dont take this the wrong way but 700 isnt the place to learn...or find a GOOD mentor.

The problem was a loose wire. i have re soldered it. Its all good now. But the collective above 50% just has almost 0 cyclic control

Man I watched your video. It's clear you don't either have it hooked up correctly or configured correctly. Your swashplate did not move correctly in any direction. This is why nothing is working for you. Also have to agree with others. Get help from someone who knows what they are doing with your copter. I hate to see anyone get hurt with these things. Please solicit help locally. You will be much happier with the end result. Be patient, learn everything you can BEFORE attempt even lifting off the ground. Take all these comments as good advice from people who care and are really trying to help you.

Hey question, is this your site? www.sladexgaming.com

Looks like a work in progress but very nice looking.

As far as your heli goes, I'm not sure it's prudent for anyone to provide further help at this point. It's a mess.

Looks like you are running a beastx. Is that correct?

Can be several things but video isn't going to show that. Do you have a swash leveler, servo's centered at mid stick/zero pitch and all trims and sub trims on rx at 0?

This is exactly my point. I wasn't trying to come off like a ass just being honest...i'm scared for you. Between FIXING a important part with plastic weld and seeing that video i predict a horrible maiden and a broken heart for the hobby. Seek professional guidance. Please!

Yeah its in progress. Thanks for visiting. and i have it all fixed now. The swash setup was 120 instead of 90-1. I didn't realize that the tx had to be 90-1 and beastx 120

Do the swash test...hold heli in your hands and rotate around in circles and different directions. Swash should try and stay level in all directions.

You get that nobody is dissing you, right?

We all want to help but you don't seem ready for the do it yourself stage quite yet. This bird needs to be gone through one step at a time by someone who has prior experience with an Align 700E or similar.

Every one of us was in the same boat at some point. We want to see you succeed!

I got 2 scars on my left knee when i was wet behind the ears from improper swash setup

When i first went flybarless there's nothing like having the elevator reversed! Went inverted few inches off the ground and then proceeded to cut the grass

Why it will suck to learn on a 700 because its so much more expensive.

Check everything once...then twice...3rd time...then start over :p

Two different heli's. Trex 500 and other was a off brand 450ish size flybar heli. 450ish one chopped my knee. Left 2 deep gashes even at a low rpm. Learned my lesson quite quickly.

I hit myself with the 130x when I was first starting out. For a little thing it hurt. I can timagine how it would be with a 500
