I have a Robbe Eolo. It has completely baffled me as to why it will not "lift off". I am afraid I may have fitted the blades incorrectly (inasmuch as I presumed that the "dihedral/camber" would be on top, as per aircraft wings?, but also there seems loads of power (to me anyway), but no lift. I have the Twist 37, Kontronik ESC and JR radio. As far as I am aware I have assembled the model correctly. I have used both ni-cads and a li-po battery. The ni-cads have "cut-out" presumably due to low volts?
Can anyone throw any light on this terribly frustrating state of affairs?!!
I should add that it took a while ( and a posting here) for me to realise that the collective be plugged into channel 6

What is your blade pitch set at? Maybe you don't have enough pitch on the high end?

Take Care,

What blades are you using? They should be the same on top as they are on the bottom, eg. symetrical.

Take Care,
Cheers, Patrick
