I was at the field today between 14:00 & 15:00 all on my own , good flying too. There is a dead sheep along the fence line towards the gate from the pits, I saw the farmer so reported this to her. I hope no one had plans for a BBQ Smile .

Sounds good, I hope you got it for a bargain price?

How about tomorrow afternoon then? The forecast is for the wind to drop around 3pm ish, then it is just a matter of dodging any showers heading over! I may be ready to maiden (again) a certain yellow and red thing that snapped it's tail during an attempted blender last year Wink This time, I've put the tail in the bin though!

Cheers
Andy

I'll bring the MovingFilm Camera then, and so long as I leave it running, nothing dramatic, and worth of recording, will happen!

Cheers

Hi Mark, sorry been away all day with my daughter in Manchester.

Mine is set up staticaly to give 0 degrees at centre stick with a spread of about +10 to -10 degrees at the extremes. This is set up mechanicaly with a straight line pitch curve.

Once this is achieved my settings are as follows.

Normal pitch L 39.0% - 1 inh - 2 inh - 3 69.0% - 4 inh - 5 inh - H 87.5%
Normal Throttle L 0.0% - 1 inh - 2 inh - 3 60.0% - 4 inh - 5 inh - H 100.0%
THGis should give around 5% at centre stick with -2 to +9 at thew extreemes.
Try to keep the throttle ATVs equal when setting up the throttle mechanicaly to keep things linear.

Idle 1 Pitch L 28.5% - 1 inh - 2 inh - 3 69.0% - 4 inh - 5 inh H 87.5%
Idle 1 throttle L 70.00 - 1 59.0% - 2 50.5% - 3 50.0% - 4 61.0% - 5 79.0% - H 100.00%

this should give you around -6 to + 9 still with 5% in the middle so that nothging dramatic happens when you switch from normal to idle up 1.

Finaly

idle 2 pitch L 9.5% - 1 inh - 2 inh - 3 50.0% - 4 inh - 5 inbh - H 87.5%
idle 2 throttle L 100% - 1 inh - 2 inh 3 60% 4 inh - 5 inh - H 100%
+9 to -9 with 0% in the middle.

I do use a rev limiter set to hold the head speed down at extreemes but these settings shoulds work.

They are very close to the ones in the Alighn manual.

Any queries give me a bell

as you may have seen in "feild tales" i broke my `rex on saturday after a full ispection the bits have been ordered

Finaly!!! My 600n is here! Rex10


Now i was expecting about £100 repair bill but maniged to get a set of BBT carbon blades on the BMFA classifieds for £30 insted of £66 and SAB carbon tails for £5 insted of £16 (also got a pair of Funkey carbon tails from the same guy for £5) which helped alot and the rest was ordred from Fast lad

1 x H60071T Ball Link Trex600 (H60071T) = £2.90
1 x H60121 Torque Tube Front Drive Gear Set (H60121) = £8.48
1 x H60108 Flybar Rod/440mm (H60108) = £3.87
1 x H60137 Skid Pipe (H60137) = £4.37
1 x HN6084 Linkage Rod (HN6084) = £2.90

So all in all not 2 bad, this being my first real heli crash made me realise the diferance betwen a heavy fixed wing landing to a heli, Heli being alot simpler to fix (just buy the parts) but of course fixed wing its normaly a case of abit of DIY

also worth noting im now adding a header tank, as you can see in the pic theres still a fair bit of fuel in the tank but there was air in the line at the crash landing site,

So the general cencers of opinion is that when i went from full neg pictch to full positive for the climp out and push forward the the clunk has come out of the fuel and the time its taken to complete the curcit and pass infount of me the air has reached the engine!,

ahh well live and learn had 2 header sat here since i got it Embarassed ,

of course if i`d auto`d properly then all of this would be irelivent, maybe i should just go back to hovering Rolling Eyes
