Hi guys, finally got my Rappy 50 all built and after borrowing my GY502 from my old 30 she should be ready for some action tomorow. I do have several questions though on breaking in the TT50 in this heli, this is what I know so far, if I'm wrong please let me know, if you have a better way let me know, or if I left anything out please let me know
From what I understand the TT50 needs to be run very very even slobbery rich for the first few runs, not sure what setting this will require, but I think getting it started and richening the needle until it barely runs would be very very rich enough
I understand I should just idle it for the first tank or two like this.
Then I think the next step would be running up the motor a little and just hovering for a short period of time(30 seconds or so) and then landing and letting it idle for 30 seconds or so, and then repeating and doing this for 2 or 3 tanks.
At this point I would think I could lean it slightly, so it is still really really rich but just not so rich that it barely runs, and just hover it for another 4 or 6 tanks and then hover and gentle manuevering, keeping the throttle relatively low for the rest of the first gallon. Does this sound about right?
I will be anxious at this point to try a few flips, loops and rolls but from what I understand I should probably do another gallon of simple forward flight, and save all the fun flying for when I start on the third gallon... I'm kind of hoping in the back of my head that you will all disagree on this and tell me to go all out as soon as I finish my first gallon but I think it is in the best interest of my new motor to take it easy till I get the second gallon through it!
Well please let me know how this sounds, I got the 50 because my old 30 with the a very old OS32 just didn't have the power, and although I will be biting my lip to keep myself from trying any 3D in the first gallon or two, that is why I bought this heli
and I probably should do my best to get her broken in properly... I have a feeling I will be wanting that OS hyper in a few months, but thats no excuse to be sloppy with breaking in this engine
Thank you all ahead of time for your replies and for taking the time to read my post... I dont consider myself to be a novice, but my past 3 heli's have either been electric or relatively used, so I havent had to break in an engine on a heli yet, thanks for your help!
