Hi,
I
I have now built my EVO 50, testrun the engine and set up my radio (9c) as best as I am able to. This pm nearly got it in a hover, but noticed that it seemed to tilt a bit as it started to rise, so set it down and thought I'd better get someone experienced to look it over. Is there anyone in the Redmond area able and willing to look it over for me in the next couple of weeks or so so I can be sure it is built right?

Thanks,

Dolf

Basic setup is simple. With all controls at neutral, the swasplate should be level, perpendicular to the main rotor shaft.

Note that when you do lift off, the heli will probably require a bit of right aileron (cyclic) to overcome the side thrust produced by your tail rotor.

As you get trimmed out, you will eventually find that you need to run something on the order of one to two degrees of right cyclic due to the tail rotor thrust.

Also, never expect the heli to just lift straight up into a hover. Helis must be flown constantly. Even if you are sitting on the ground, engine running and clutch engaged, and at an RPM where you think the heli is safe -- you must always be in full control of the heli.

It is a good idea to have an experienced pilot go over your machine if you aren't fully competent at the initial set up. But get the fellow to teach you what to look for at the same time, and how to do it yourself, so you can attain the level of competency to set up the heli and take care of it.

Then, pass the knowledge on to the next newbie.

You can also take a look here:

http://www.pilotlocator.net/index.php

and hope that the data base is current.

More heli pilots need to be aware of this site, use it, and update it so that newbies can get the help they need quickly.

Should be plenty..

I wish I wasn't so busy right now. '
I had to turn down another guy last week because I know I am not going to have time in the coming weeks.

Head down to Marrymoore on any given weekend and I bet you will find.
Doc, Dave, Reyes or one of the "locals" down there.
Any one of them can get you trimed up.

Sounds like normal though. Especially if it wants to tilt to the left when you lift off.
The tail rotor causes that.

If you don't find someone this week give me a shout and I will try and get you setup.
