Well, i'm done right now buying stuff for the Aurora.

This is what ive got so far.

Servos<> 4x 9451 futaba.

Gyro<> GY611 w/servo.

<> TJ RevMax limiter.

Reciever <> JR2000

Engine <> OS.91 SZ-H PS hyper. I ordered it from RC-toro and it still has not come in. I ordered it 4 weeks ago, so my Dad is going to give them a call and yell at them

In the mean time i'm going to get the new mini funtanaX,I hope it will keep me happy till the Aurora comes out

I was going to start a thread asking what the best servos were for the best setup for very aggressive 3D flight, but it looks like you guys beat me to it I was debating on the 9252s vs. the 9351s for the cyclic. Based on your posts, it looks like the 9351s are probably the best ones to go with for the cyclic and a 9252 on the throttle for how I want to fly. I do have one more question. Since I will be running a 6v system should I be concerned about what fuel mixture servo I am using? I was just going to use a 3003 or a 3151, that I have as spares already for my planes to save some money, but I also don't know if they will burn up under a higher voltage load. What do you think? Thanks guys

Oh, heres a pic of me and my stash too for those who are curious.

That's a a nice looking stash and looks very similar to mine. Substitute the 9303 for the 14MZ, Revmax for GV-1, and add four 9351's and you'd be looking at my stash. BTW, you're not so bad yourself

Hi again

LadyMagic: Nice stash. the 3151 are specd for 6V arn't they? At least some 3152 I have around, are.

Even in case they arn't, I don't see a big problem because futaba rates are based on nicad/nimh packs (4 cell = 4.8V, 5 cell = 6V) unregulated. My nimh 4.8V pack goes up as high as 6.2V when freshly charged. An unregulated 6V pack will go up high as 7.3V when freshly charged. I'm sure 7.3V even for a very short period of time could damage a 4.8V rated servo.

I've ran 9252 servos at 5.94V for over a year now without any problems. 6V should be ok everywhere except for the tail (that servo works way too much).

In my case and just to be completely at ease, I got myself a cheap align 5.1V stepdown that I'm planning to use on throttle (9254) so in that case I will have:

3 x 9351 at 6V
1 x 9254 + gyro at 5V
1 x 9254 at 5.1V

All supplied by the arizona reg.

Get yourself one of those cheap align becs (18$ maybe?) take the stepdown that comes with it and sell it off for 8-10$ to someone that has fried his bec. Much cheaper solution than paying 27$ for a freaking duralite stepdown. Thats more expensive than the 3152 anyway

Tony

PS - A cute girl loving helis... are you still available?

Thanks for the info! That will be very useful. As for the 3151 servo....well, guess I should check to see if it's 6v rated, but I don't think it is. I have four of them for my 7CHP that I haven't intalled in anything. Augusto says that the bracket for the Fuel Mixture is too small for a standard size servo anyways, so I am going to get a mini servo an a step down for the fuel mix setup. That's a good idea using the BEC component instead to save some cash.

I've never setup a 90 before. Can I use a Header tank still even though my SZ-H is pumped? What exactly is a fuel magnet?

And also, I am hearing horror stories about the Carb assembly coming loose from the crank case. That worries me alittle. Can i just use alittle thread lock around the opening and the cam screw? That should fix it right?

Also DYD/Dave,
Thanks in advance for doing my Canopy and working with me on my picky request and shipping date. I can't wait to see it! You are the greatest

some 6v mixture servo choices
Some plug and play options for the mixture servo we tried are...
- Futaba 3101 - works on 6v, no step down needed
- Hitec HS85 - works on 6v, BB output shaft, no step down needed

We used the 3101's with the supplied mounting brackets - no mods required. The height of the servo is important as it sits between the frame and the close fitting canopy.

The ball bearing-ed HS85's may hold up better than the 3101's in some cases - not sure why, but the 3101's in both Dave's machines wore out rather quickly while the 3101's both mine with more flights on 'em are still going strong.

Yes, although it should not be needed with the fuel magnet if the fuel tank works correctly.
What exactly is a fuel magnet?
Instead of the traditional weighted clunk which is tossed around with the fuel due to it's weight - the magnet is a piece of foam riding on a lightweight aluminum pickup. It's job is to float inside the fuel that is bouncing around in your tank. The foam also sucks up a bunch of fuel on contact, so one small splash keeps the engine fueled. The magnet is made by OMI in Alabama. It does not last long when using muffler pressure - as that degrades the foam quickly. The magnet does such a good job staying soaked with fuel, that the engine will literally run till the last drop of fuel and then suddenly quit. No more sounds of lean running just before it is out of fuel. It is also referred to as the "ELD" - Every Last Drop.
And also, I am hearing horror stories about the Carb assembly coming loose from the crank case. That worries me alittle. Can i just use alittle thread lock around the opening and the cam screw? That should fix it right?
Don't fix it until it's broken. That doesnt happen very often. Tighten according to the instructions - OS gives a spec how far you should turn the bolt after you feel the first sign of tension. That spec is there so you don't overtighten the assembly initially, changing it's dimensions and making the situation worse. Tighter isn't always better. Also - loctite or thread compound is removed with heat. Your engine is a source of heat. I would sure hate to see you use a hi temp thread lock in there, and have to blowtorch the assembly each time you wanted to remove the carb.....

Enjoy!

Jerry

exactly what i whould have said.except i think that i'll keep the hopper tank,what do you think about using the fuel magnet in the main tank and a standard hopper tank as well.Tom

can u make it go faster

Header tanks are just cool. I need to have one on any of my birds.

I'm so used to looking at them, I'm going to use one on the aurora too.

A friend of mine had a bad experience when the fuel magnet finally decomposed in his tank (pieces of the foam managed to get into the carb) so I'm not a big fan of them.

I'm not going to use muffler pressure anyway (except for the part to regulate the fuel flow on my webra reg).

At least thats what I planned. Future will tell for sure.

You guys are talking alot about the fuel mixture servo... is it really needed or as good as they say?

Tony

it seem to me having a hopper tank is like having insurance your not going to suck air when you want fuel.have you ever had the fuel line split between the klunck and nipple where the fuel comes out of the tank,your first clue will be that you can't drain the main tank.if you start out with a full hopper tank you should finish with a full hopper tank,now sometimes when inverted you may see air in the hopper because the main tank is low on fuel and the clunck is sucking air.which is the real reason for a hopper tank.plus you get a little more flying time.Tom

can u make it go faster
