hmmm I bet all his DD brushed motors worked too
irush: If you are refering to my setups, I have had no failures on my BL DD motors that were not caused by crashes - including 1 motor that sat 20 feet under water for 1 week.

To read about my 1 BL DD motor failure (caused by crashes) and the fix, go here [http://runryder.com/helicopter/t369666p1/]

Micro:

Just did a test to confirm if my G90 requires trim during flight. Two tests, with 2 results:
  • 1st pack, hovered indoors, with canopy - required 8 right-clicks to keep G90 with no drift from start of pack to end of pack
    (wait 15 minutes)
  • 2nd pack, hovered indoors, no canopy - require zero adjustment during entire flight and no drifting
Why?

Only reason I can see is that the G90 does not compensate for changes in temperature very well. This model has the G90 inside the canopy, above the battery and beside the motor. So, as the temperature inside the canopy changes(from 68°F to about 100°F), the G90 neutral changes...

I probably do not normally see this, since my normal flight has the heli in constant motion, so the temperature is not building up inside the canopy.

I will do further testing tomorrow, with this heli and my other BCPP that has the G90 mounted on the platform behind the rear servos.

BTW, where do you have your G90 mounted? Could the gyro temperature be changing during the flight?

They claim it has temperature compensation but I don't think anyone believes that and if just temp is the cause then it must be very sensitive to it

I just found fenderstrat cussing his G90 now too heh

I mount mine in the stock location behind the rear servos

Rebooting the gyro when it starts drifting seems to recenter it but of course that's a lot more hassle than just trimming it - That doesn't sound much like temp drifting to me

Off the subject a bit, I'm sure someone will let me know if i am in the wrong forum, So, i have the realflight sim by SKV systems and was wandering, can i get some feed back on the cheapest radio controller, with USB link to control it, keeping in mind i live in Canada and have not bought anything fron the US, yet. Thanks in advance for any help.(Worried about shipping and price)
