Guys couldd i please have some help..

i have bought a second hand tempest (my first MA heli)

and have been putting it back together (basic pull down to ship it)

i have put thehead on it and the flybar through it

heres my question

on the flybar are the arms that attach to the links from the swashplate
are the links supposed to run horzontal eg inline with the paddles ?
or slightly downwards ?

the reason for this question is that on the flybar itself are the marks where the grub screws have been and i i line them up the arms are not level ?

this is a tempest 3d model

Thanks Dale

Yes, there should be about 20* of downward angle to the arms, this is to allow you more collective pitch without binding at the extremes when both airlons and elevatro at full + and - pitch,,

Hope this helps. XGM

Hey,

If i remember rightly the flybar control arms on the Tempest do not require that they have to be angled down by 10' Degree's like on the Fury Extreme head.

If you check the Tempest manual it says to align the flybar control arms so that they are inline, also if you checkout the new stratus flbar carrier for the Tempest it is inline compared to the Extreme version which has this 10' Degree down angle built in.

Hope this Helps

Hoi, RotorHead486 is correct.
I have both extreme and tempest.

Tempest is 0°
Extreme is 10°

When flying 0° on extreme head, the risk of pop-of is very high. (we had it on the field with a second hand extreme)

Tempest with 3D head does not require any offset in the flybar control arms. As was stated earlier, the new carbon flybar carrier also has no offset.

Dale,

The only thing you have to watch for is that the ball links don't touch the bottom of the blade grips at full cyclic deflection. If they touch then angle the mixing arms down enough so they won't touch. If they don't touch then you are good to go. The 0 degrees or 10 degrees is for no other reason, just a clearance issue.
