I have been watching this sight for a little while now and it seems the best place for info. I just got a 3d pro and this is my first cp micro as well as my first eccpm model. I have been flying a gws df ....hover and sff no problem. I am ready to take the next step.
Questions:

Throttle and pitch curves for "sport flying"? I am thinking my pitch range should be something like -4 to +6...

What kind of grease are we using on the tail gear box?

How can I tell if my model has the torqe tube bushing or the bearing?

My gears are "clicky" in spots as I manually turn the main rotor..not too bad but what is acceptable?

Should I be concerned with the motor mount bolts being the wrong size? I have not taken the motor out to see.

-Any info on basic setup for sport flying (no 3-d...yet) tricks and tips would be greatly appreciated.

My stuff:

-Stock heli with stock bl motor and cc10
-HS 55's on swash
-HS 50 on tail
-Align heading hold gyro (yuk)
-TT 3s 1320 gen 2
-JR 9303
-Expert rf650 rx. (yuk?)

Thank you...You guys have inspired me to push my self

1. -8, -10 TO +10, +12

2. Use something synthetic if possible, ball bearing grease, tri-flow, etc...

3. Only way to tell is to take the boom off or the gear box off and shaft out and look down with a flash light. If you see aluminum its a Torque bearing. For some reason mine had both the plastic one and the torque bearing in it lol. Im pretty sure yours has the bearing because I bought mine march 16th and mine had it already.

4. A little clicky is normal. fix the mesh on the crown gear if its too tight by sanding the top boss down a tiny bit equally. .2 to .5 mm just bearly any.

5. This is the second time i have heard the 2.5mm screw are too large to fit in the 2.5mm holes. Mine was also I tapped a set to 4-40 size and bought some 4-40 screws. Century messed up bigtime on all them!

6. Setting up the pitch curve and swash is going to be the hardest, I spent a long time messing with the arms on the servos and controler settings. I finally got it all right in and equally on the TX. I suggest, setting the pitch curve first on the TX, then putting the servo arms on.

Thanks alot TMASTER that should get me started in the right direction! I love this hobby and can't wait to progress. If any one else has any suggestions on anything "3-D Pro" related for an up-and-coming pilot it would be great! Thanks again..........Rob

Hey Tmaster....I forgot to say that my electronis are installed and I followed the instructions to to this. I did create a flat pitch curve @ my 2,3,4 points and put the throttle at 50% and then put my servo horns on at 90 degrees and using my sub-trims it all looks real good. I just bought a "micro" pitch guage and tomarrow will see where I am at as far as pitch range is concerned. I guess my question is what is the next step as far as setup is and where a good starting point for th and pt curve...before I try to hover it Once again, thank you for your (or anyones) input!
