Hello,
I have a Rap50v2, os50, jr6102, gy 401 with about 25 flights on it.
After I've started it and have it running I start to increase the throttle slowly and the heli will spin to the left. I can limit it by bringing the throttle trim up very slowly and letting the blades spin up slower but cannot eliminate it. I'm on the rotopod so is it just the resistance is less then with both skids on the ground? I realize that you have to wait for the tail rotor to have enough rpms to be affective but I've seen other Rap50 fly and they don't seem to spin as much. I'm wondering if its my throttle curve or possibly the clutch grabbing a little bit. Any help would be appreciated.

Sounds like your gyro needs to be reversed or your belt is not tight or is turned the wrong way

moorecj98, I think you need to reread the post slightly

Try turning the gain up alittle on the gyro. The heli will want to turn the nose to the left slightly when you apply power it's down to the gyro, tail servo and tail blades to counteract it. What's your headspeed set at? try increasing it slightly which will make the tail more efficient.

If your belt is not tight this will cause the tail rotor not to turn the proper speed thus not giving you tail control You can try turning up your headspeed but that won't do no good unless the belt is tight and going the right direction

most people set that screw/nut on the Rotopod
much too loose and you'll see the machine
rotating like you do.

tighten down that screw till the metal mounting
plate is pretty tight.

You say you have 25 flights on the bird. So,
the question is 'does this rotation happen once
the bird is airborne or only while you're spooling
up to take off and the Rotopod is still on the ground'?
