There are a few parts that I still don't understand on my blade cp
This is also my first heli. I feel kinda stupid just for asking this.

What is the purpos of the flybar? What does it do? I see that it moves with the main blades and that the variable pitch servos move it and the blades togather through the swashplate.
I have also noticed that it moves differently in flight than the main blades.

does it provide lift?
balance of kind?

Flying this cp is like trying to ballance a piece of sheet metal on a marble. noobie thought of the day...

anyone got a nitro heli for sale for $300 or less???

The flybar helps change the pitch of the main blades during cyclic inputs (power steering) as we use relatively weak electronic servos and demand alot more of our cyclic than do our full scale counter parts which are for hte most part, driven by hydraulic actuators.

It also imparts gyroscopic stability to the head.

more blonde noobie heli questions?
got me thinking about this... I would like to make it less sensitive and the ball joint arms are all the way out on the servo arms. Can I safely move them all the way in for less cyclic responce, and then move them back out as I get more expperience?

Also the servo arms are "T" shaped on the ends. There is a linkage hole above and below the last hole furthest from the pivot point.
Can I use these to somehow make the cyclic less responsive to my controller inputs?

I'm going to have to buy a custom controller that I can set cyclic and pitch curves on arent I?

I have the g3 sim but there is not a blade cp that I can find for it.

I think my CP isn't sensitive enough! I'd like faster, more positive repsonse than I get right now.
The holes in the tee's on the servo arms will only shift the position of the neutral point.
There's a CP style chopper in 3.5.
The upgrade is free, to registered owners.

cp style? I have the 3.5 upgrade. someone told me about an "axe" heli. I haven't found it yet.
I don't have the 1 & 2 add-on packs yet, are they in there?

To fly an actual Blade CP on a sim, the Hangar 9 simulator has a CP and CX, but I warn you, those are the only 2 heli options you have on that sim.

As fas as increasing the stability on your Blade CP, add an extra set of weights on the end of your flybar, taking care that it is perfectly balanced. That should help you out a ton!

I am not a huge fan of FS-One, but it does have other helis besides the CX and CP.

thanks guys...
I found the axe that you showed me. I tried it and crashed it just as fast as my real one. I am kinda starting to get used to it. I like the model for it in the sim with the custom carbon fiber looking frame. I have to look see if I can get one of those kits for mine. Its got to be more rigid and stable than the plastic stock frame that I have now. If I do all of that? should I get the belt drive tail rotor upgrade kit too?

It is never ending with the upgrades isn't it... now If I do all that I will upgrade to a li-po battery set up too...

aghhhhh so many upgrades.....
wich upgrades do you guys recomend other than crash kits for me, a one time fly and crash noobie with some sim exp. after the crash?

I should just learn to fly it first....

thanks all

Don't worry too much about the upgrades. Practice on the sim until you can hold a hover. Upgrades just equal more expensive crashes at this stage.

And of course, all the metal head replacement parts, etc...

The answer is simply this. All that, especially on a BladeCp, just makes it more expensive to crash.

I thought that the carbon fiber parts were strong enough to withstand a crash. I thought that was the whole purpose of getting that setup.

another blonde noobie question....
what is head speed?

RPM's of your main rotor.

Carbon fiber is tough, but "tough enough to withstand a crash" could mean a lot of things. If anything was tough enough to withstand a 3/4 loop into concrete, you can bet I'd want a heli made out of that.

The big advantage of CF is that it's stiffer and lighter than metal, allowing it to keep its shape (and your control precision) under extreme maneuvers. It won't really help much in the kind of flying I do. But it does look cool.
