I have just brought myself a zoom 400, everything is work accept the throttle I can hear the motor try but theres no movement.

The guy I brought it off had replaced the shaft but not tested it after doing this could there be something stopping the motor turning the blades?

Thanks, Kurt

pull the motor out and see if it will freely turn by hand, then by the controller, if it does both, check that the mainshaft and tail rotate freely by themselves. Then install the motor again and make sure the gear mesh is correct.

Yeah definately check the gear mesh.I thought my motor was a dud, but then smoke started coming out of it. Thats when I discovered that the factory mesh is too tight. Loosen the tail boom screws and fix the mesh!

The gear mesh on mine was so tight that you couldn't turn it by hand.

Also, if the pinion gear has been changed, it could be slipping on the motor shaft.

Cheers thats that problem fixed, now onto the next

I cannot get the heli to lift off the ground, looking at the blades they seam to be only giving me negative pitch.

The manual completly skipped my mind hehehe. I found the page near the back telling me about the pitch adjuster, thanks for your help. Will hopefully have it in the air soon wooohoo

One more thing I need to know, is the pitch servo meant to move when I move the aileron stick on the Tx?

No the aileron servo shouldn't effect the pitch, sounds like you might have your Tx set in the wrong swash mode, ie ccpm. The Zoom is a standard swashplate setup no mixing required

That TX will do the job just fine select "normal'as the swash mode and make sure that you have no other mixes active.

yep Twin is right that Tx will work perfectly. Also check you have the servos in the correct channels.

you need swashplate setting in normal mode and the channels for JR are :-

ch1 = throttle
ch2 = ailerons (left and right roll)
ch3 = elevator (forward and backwards)
ch4 = gyro
ch5 = gyro (if using a gyro with remote gain ie GY401) otherwise not used
ch6 = pitch

lol this is great the guy I brought the Tx off used it on a airplane so for some reason has ripped out all pages to do with heli's & gliders.

The swash mode selection part has this on the screen "mix SWASH NORMAL". Do I need to get rid of the mix part? if so does anyone know how.

If anyone has any info where I can download a copy of the manual that would be great, I've tried JR's site but I think its too old (discontinued )

With my JR 2610 I have normal swash (i.e.) no mixing. I guess "mix normal" is ok too though.

-Put the throttle cut on (or unplug the motor).
-When you increase the pitch (up throttle stick) you should get the pitch of of the blades becoming positive. If it goes negative you need to reverse your pitch channel (I had to do this! Its on the Tx).

-Also verify that you can increase the pitch without the aeleron and elevator servos moving, this will confirm you have normal (no mixing)!

Everythings working apart from the collective servo moves with the pitch servo, so whenever i attemp to go forward it increases collective as well.

mix SWASH NORM is correct

In the main menu of the 347 make sure that mix is all set to 0, you will find this option between mix ACC and TRN:T Norm.

Scroll to the mix A11.- 0% and use the ch> button to move through the options, all should be 0 apart from mix A SW which should be ON.

Programming and menus are virtually identical to the 3810 so you could download that manual.....

Also make sure that your servos are correctly plugged in to the right channels..


I don't use JR anymore but that's all I can remember about the x347 hope this helps

Problems solved, cheers DangerDick

It was the speed controller plugged into wrong channel on Rx and the Tx was in the wrong mode.

mmm, since the above problem has been solved the collective servo does not move as far as it used to, i've tried it on a different channel (gear ch) and it goes all the way up & down but when its on the correct channel it only moves a few mm.
