Hello guys,

for those of you flying 3D with the Trex SE, do you max out the swash movement so that at full cyclic the swash's bottom bearing nearly touches the main shaft ?

i thought i had a somewhat slow roll cyclic in my Rexy, and just noticed that on my 9Z WC2 i could go from 60% to 100% in the swash meny under elevator and aileron without binding i believe, so i was wondering what others have been doing.

thanks.

I haven't finished my SE yet but on my HDE I just set it up to get 6deg of cyclic pitch and it seems to flip/roll nice and tight.

Lior,
At half stick, set everything in the middle - mixing arms parallel and in the middle of the anti-rotation pins.

Adjust the travel of the swash for +/-10degrees. The swash at -10 should have enough frredom not to bottom out cyclic extremes.

At 60% on the SWH AFR's how much cyclic pitch are you getting?

If the AFR numbers get much over 70% to yield your desired throw or control authority, then interactions will be greater as the servo wheels will be deflected far off centerline. You may need a little more servo arm length.

Ah, the pleasures of eCCPM.

I run about 80% on ail and ele with the flybar weights all the way out against the paddles (for stability). Does whatever I want

I could be mistaken but it seems most of the pics I've seen people have been using the second hole from the outside with the HS56 single arm horns.

That would be along the lines of what I'm wondering about too.

Nope guys, second hole from the inside (out of 4) sits perfectly straight under the swash balls at 0 pitch.

So can you measure the cyclic pitch @ 60% AFR?

I've got mine at 15mm Give or take, Ceter of screw to center of ball @ 55% at swash.

Hi Guys

Thats where the direct linkage falls down as you need a long servo arm to get the required movement on the swash @ low swash settings
my settings on the se are ail-85 elev-85 pitch-90
But on my xl because of the longer bellcrank arm my settings are ail-55 elev-55 pitch-55
and the xl is more agile than the se

The world is round you can run but you will always end up where you started from
