ello again, sorry for the precious little info i gave in the title,

this is about the most noobish question that one may ask but here i go, what do the paddels do? and secondly what does they mean when they say reversable rotor grips on the kyosho caliber 30.

thanks


andy

reverseable blade grips means they will work on either side of the rotor head the flybar and paddles feed your cyclic control input to the main rotor causing the heli to tilt. if you look hard enough on this run ryder you will find more detailed explainations of how exactly the control system works basically the fly bar and paddles allow you to control the tilt (roll/pitch) of the heli

Paddles are power steering for our helis.

Real one's don't do the radical manuvers we do and have hydraulic systems to drive the actuators. We fly crazy and rely on servo's to overcome the inertia of the rotor system.

Andy,

Older Kyosho models used a setup where the blade grips were positioned so that the control ball was on the trailing edge of the blade. Since then, they have tried several times with designs that have leading-edge control. If the blade grip is designed with the hex-opening for the dragbolt nut on only one side of the grip, you can't flip the grip to the other mode.

Kyosho learned this with the Nexus, and applied this knowledge to the Caliber, which has the provision for the dragbolt nut on either side of the grip. Hence, "reversible" grips. WHY you might want leading-edge or trailing-edge control is a subject far too complex and controversial to get into.

Paddles provide two functions:

1. They provide a stabilizing influence on the rotor head. The heavier the paddle, the more stabilizing it provides. Since the main blade grips are tied to the stabilizer bar, the blades can't "flutter" because the flybar prevents it.

2. They power-control the main blade cyclic pitch. Cyclic controls primarily influence the paddles, which in turn pull the main blades to achieve the desired cyclic pitch. Without the paddles, your servos would need to be strong enough to hold the entire force of the main blade pitch.

no, no, n00b,

There is a big difference between stupid and uneducated. You are not stupid. All of us were in your shoes at one time. Nobody was born knowing anything. Just by trying to learn something new tells me that you are not stupid.

Keep on learning.

On the Cal 30 the reversilbe grips reffer to the leading edge control input or the trainling edge input. One is supposed to be for a beginner (less finicky) the other is for experienced flyers. I stated off in the exp position because of alot of sim time and seemed to do OK. Go with what you feel best with,,,,

QUICK! ,,,can someone turn the gravity off for just a second,,,,
