Venom count

I have N.R.-2 and N.R 3-D, both busted! They do NOT "Fly and hover right out of the box" unless you have experience, (NOT on the box, instead this line is INSIDE the instruction book). Paul is GREAT at service/support but I can't afford to keep putting $$ into bricks.
Don't get me wrong, I have had the 3-D in the air (N.R.-2 never made it above 2' so crash damage aint bad but servo sticks) and had FUN for 5min. YEP, frustrated and trying to learn (see "Work shop" post).

My VNR3D and Outback Rescue flew beautifully, right out of the box.

What are you having trouble with?

Are these your first non-coaxial machines?

Hi Paul Susbauer, Its me again, Reverend S. C. . Still having much difficulty with my units . As far as the 3-D you sent, I followed your instructions and was able to get into hover and do a "box" pattern, then it seems to loose power after three or four min., yes, following battery instructions too .
My N.R.-2 collects dust! Never got above couple feet, squirrly flight and inevidable crash. Now I see the front servo sticks. This unit also has power "issues". I know you are aware of my situation and intentions, I REALLY want to fly these Venom products and am trying to be "Loyal" to my first brand as well as turning others on to the joy of R/C heli. flight but am getting a bit chapped.
I know there are Venom Air field reps. , any in VT.?
What next?

Batteries

What is the normal life for batteries in the Ocean Rescue? I have two batteries and they are bith starting to balloon up and not sure how long I should use them. I have only flown about 25 times with each battery. This could get expensive if the batteries are only good for that long. Any help would be appreciated.

Heli count

Hi,
I' the happy owner of an Ocean Rescue since January. I have learned indoors, but I prefer outside now. The only thing that is not fun, is that I live in a very windy place. When air is calm, I have a lot of fun.

I've added an Night Ranger 3D recently. It's very hard to fly, for a beginer, but I'm getting better each day. Parts are realy easy to break. I have 4 sets of blades,1 tail rotor, 1 seesaw and link rod broken. My servo arms were already to 2nd hole, so I've wanted to move the brass pins to 1st, but have given up. I realy can't remove these pins. So I will let them in 2nd hole and get used to it.

Future Upgrades: carbon blades, LIPO batt. Maybe some alloy head parts

Carbon blades

I've just installed carbon blades, hoping they will not break too fast. Last week, I had to fit some wooden blades, to keep my nr3d in the air, since I wasn't able to find any stock one. I've visited 3 hobby stores, and no one had any stock or carbon blades. So I've putted some Helimax ones. (shorter and wider) Not the best performance, but at least, they have made me more confident (the heli was less responsive)They finaly had to be replaced after some bad manoeuvers. (Coating was peeling from the tips)

When I have installed the carbon, I had to reajust pitch. I don't have the chance to fly every day, but I have hovered about 8 feet high over grass and began some basic manoeuvers. Not so bad, I think, for a newbie. I think the worst part is behind me. My next objectives are: 1) Getting better
2) Trying to get more and more people into this marvelous hobby,and promoting the Venom Brand.

May I suggest one thing for Venom people: Why not make an owner's club. I think it would be fun.

I have three Venom Helicopters:

Night Ranger 3D, Outback Rescue, Night Ranger 3DXL.

All three fly well.

The VNR3D has the carbon blades on it (which were an improvement from a flying standpoint) and the metal head (an improvement from a stability standpoint). This machine has about 100 flights on it over the last 2 and a half years.

The XL is larger, smoother, and easier to fly.

Sean,

I was interested in your comments on the micro, as I do not have one (yet).

Starry,

"(ps are aussies welcome here)"

Absolutely!

This sucks, I just trashed my micro
Broken parts:
Boom
Both blades
Random screws and links

I found a couple 3mm aluminum tubes, and cut them down to size. Np more mess when you shatter the CF boom it comes with.

Linking rods

Sometimes when I crash my NR3d (oh yes, it happens...) the metal threaded rod of the link between the swashplate and flybar seesaw comes off its plastic upper end. Even when new, it is very easy to strip the plastic threads. Is there any metal part I could use, instead of it. In other words, is there any all metal rods kit for the NR3D? Or maybe I could use some stuff to restore plastic ends.

May I have some hints/tips, please?

Thank you in advance

3DXL ARF

Excuse me, but I've just had an idea, and I would know if it could work. Since Venom has the 3DXL ARF, can we use parts from the NR3D (electronics and remote) to make it fly or it is completely different?

I know the 3DXL has a belt driven tail rotor, but would the NR3D's control unit be able to handle this.

Excuse me for these questions, but I'm very curious about that

Thak you again

No hover

Hi,
I' m a newbie too. Are you talking about the Nr3D? If so, it's really not a beginner's heli. Is it your first heli? The best for beginners is the Ocean Rescue, a coaxial (2 counter rotating sets of blades) It's very stable. I began with 2 Air Hogs Havoc (Picooz) 2 channels infrared remote (you control only altitide and steering. Forward movement is achieved by adding weight on nose) The I got the Ocean Rescue. It's really the best for newbies.

I have now the NR3D, followed all indications in the manual, found this forum, which helped me a lot. Mr. Paul has putted a lot of useful tips. I'm still learning, but I've progressed a lot.

Here are my best advices:
Practice in the widest indoor area you can find or calm outside. If you try to fly in a small room, you won't get it to a hover. Put a traing kit under it. Swashplate must be tilted a little to the right to help couteract the NATURAL tendency to go to the left. Move you servo rods to the first hole (inside hole) to get it less responsive.

My best progresses were when I got outside, and didn't have to worry about anything around me.

Oh, and get some carbon blades, and see saw holders. They really are a must to have

Good luck, and keep us informed about your progresses

It's going to drift backwards and to the left on takeoff, if it is trimmed properly (i.e. trimmed to hover about three feet off the ground-out of its own rotor wash).

So it is not you!

Try adding a bit of right cyclic (and forward) as you lift off.
