What Kinda Electronic control any Part Number Ideas ?


I just replaced the Pull start with Electric .. Don't really understand why it has to be complicated. Like with any other heli, one has to be careful about throttle position. Personally I didn't like the idea of Chopping off wires from throttle servo and hooking them to the Micro switch.. Kinda Scarier. However , If someone has an idea on some kind of programming which would only allow CH8 to operate when throttle stick is below 10% (like a kill switch) or so would be great.

BTW I always setup my throttle hold

Hello All, I just installed one on my Vario Benzin, I did not use the black thing they sent, i used the 2 micro switches, install them on the frame, 1st one in line with the battery was my safety switch which was control by the throttle servo,where it has to be below 1/2 throttle to click in, the second was mounted on the other side of the frame and it was hooked to the starter servo and then the starter, it works great. You just have to get an oval shaped control horn or circle for the top of the servo to activate the micro switch.

Hi

by "Black thing" areyou referening to that Servo Case type thing including 2 white switches? My setup looks similar except I didn't use that second big switch with Throttle Servo. I am looking for a programming solution just like for "throttle cut" where you can't use the throttle cut switch unless throttle is very low ..

aashu,
Had a look at your photo... Excellent,simple and it works. I cant understand why Vario put that cam thingy in with the kit if it won't handle the amps,,,,do you aggree??? I've allready installed that thing but not connected the wires.
Think I'll do what you done with the other switch on the throttle servo and a 10 amp fuse in line as per rcadd1ct post.

Once again thanks everyone....... Hope to help you sometime.


Going to start another topic on engine ballancing now.... lets chat!!!!!

Tested first time

Yesterday I tested the starter to Start the engine first time .. So far it had been electrically tested.

Also, I switched from Gas to Koleman fuel .

First I made sure all servo and Switch were working properly , Hooked up 7.2V battery, switched on Tx and Rx . Throttle was at about 5%. Flicked the trainer switch ..There it goes! Starter came to life what a sweet sound ...after cranking about 20 sec. Engine won't budge. I emptied the tank. checked all lines , refueled , Flicked the starter, battery died.!!! Man , was I feeling impatient !! So I spent about 10 minutes charged the battery for about 330mah hooked up again. Flicked the trainer switch, as soon the switch engaged engine came to life .WOW that was amazing. I killed the engine and tried several times.. each time engine would start within a second. I guess, this was worth an Invesment .

At present mechancs is off the fuse I have sorted out all wiirng and radio connections. Trying find a 0.9mm Allen and a way to hook up tail serv push rod. Once that is done , I will be doing my first test flight . Probably another 2 weeks

I was just looking at my setup, I have not installed it yet but apparently what I have is the starter motor and a Graupner control, I have no micro switches or servo's so I am wondering if I have a different version than you all or if I have been shorted by Vario on this. As for the drawings I cant find them but when I do (next few days) I will scan them and post them.

are you saying that the version with the micro switches is the newest ? I would not imagine that, why would they go backwards from electronic circuits to micro switches, I am not very sure. Dont you have a control circuit for the radio chanel or is it a servo that controls it.

Brett,

Yours is the one made by Lars and not the Vario version. Now Vario sells one and this is what asshu is refering to. Hope that helps. I have the Grapner Soft Switch also and love it. My second one is using a Jomar E-switch and seems to be fine at this point.

Hope that helps.

Chris

Chris

So which version does Vario sell, Im bought this from Variousa this past winter. I cant find the drawings, does it have any safety feature or is it just a on/off type. I dont know what the leads of this Graupner control do.

Thanks

Not sure Brett. It looks to be designed the same but uses a different controller.

As for your Graupner, you have two yellow leads and then a red and black with the RX plug there.

The red and black go to your Battery

the two loose yellows get soldered onto the Motor Can and then you plug them into the yellow leads from the Graupner switch.

Plug the Servo wire into a free channel that you have a switch on so you can activate it.

That simple!

The Jomar switch is a little more complicated but if someone needs to know I can help them through installing that switch also.

Good Luck!

Chris
