Hiya everyone, I have looked longingly at RC heli's for as long as I can remember. As a boy me & my dad flew some little control line planes & some free flighters with 10 sec'c of fuel lol... Used to watch the heli's flying around and want one so bad! Well now im 26 & have my own money and I still want a heli... So on the way is a Concept 30 SRT, built with everything. Now I would have preferred to build the thing myself from scratch as I am mechanically minded but the cost was the main issue. So I decided to go down the 2hd hand route.
I have accumulated a few question if anyone has time to answer them please?
I am a bit of a fiddler so soon as its out of the box im gonna start checking it over... I will buy a big tube of thread lock! Would it be a good idea to take it apart and rebuild it thread locking everything in place? Is anything lightly to jump out of it if I start removing bits. Or should I just leave it be and put into the model shop for a once over?
I have only ever used 2 channel rc before on a car, how dose this differ (I know about the sticks lol)? Im reading about transmitter modes & throttle curves ect? I know I have never used a controller with an lcd on it before!
I have downloaded FMS and been practicing like mad with the analogue sticks on a PS2 style game pad, & im starting to get the hang of just lifting up, hovering slowly around & landing. It took my bloody ages to work out what's what in the control config as I only have 4 channels available on the game pad but I think I got it set up like it should be:
Left stick up/down = throttle
Left stick left/right = tail rotor pitch?(swings it round)
Right stick up, down, left, right = tilt the rotors forward, backward, left & right
Is this correct?
Gyro: To me this says a thing you wind string around & pull out to make it spin, then it will sit spinning on the tip of your finger, a pin head, bit of string ect. Now, what the hell dose this do in a heli?
Plank / planker: Seen this on here a lot and have no idea what you mean?
I know as soon as it arrives im gonna have a load more questions but for now I think that it.
Many thanks for reading!
