I'm still new as you are. It sounds like you may be in idle up mode for inverted flight?? I could be wrong.

First, make sure you are measuring pitch direction correctly based on rotor direction. If it really is backwards, then you need to reverse servo direction in the transmitter.

Second, and most important, have a knowledgeable person go over the heli for you, and even fly it. He can also make sure you're ready for your first flight, else we likely won't be seeing you on here again do to a major disappointment!

hi cantflyatall
from what i can see the raptor g2 is set up like the old protech zooms were , there is a single servo to control pitch via a wire link up through the main shaft , to reverse it , there should be reversing switches or a servo reverse screen on your TX , you need to reverse channel #6 pitch , HTH , dana

I had a guy look at it and thats how it got messed up he changed all the switches on back and I dont know how to change it back. I dont have the time to find someone because I move around alot. but I have plenty of money for repairs and if its beyond repair Ill buy another one. but if someone knows how to change this I would be very happy to know.

Make life simple, get face to face help with someone that knows your radio and heli's

The way I read your question about changing pitch, it has to be done in the radio pitch curve. If your pitch curve is starting at zero, that's full negative pitch and you have to get all the way to mid range to get to zero degrees on the blades. Unless you're doing inverted flights, you don't need that. If you are new and learning to hover and basic level flight, you want the first step in your pitch curve to be so your blade pitch is zero degrees. For instance on one of mine, the first step is 50% and then to 65%, then 75%, 85% and 100%. You also have to set the trottle curve to match. On this same pitch curve, my throttle curve starts at zero and the second step 45% and goes up from there. I have this one set so it will hover at center stick and the head speed is approx 1,900 and holds about three feet off the ground. This is all based on my Futaba radio, not sure how a JR would setup.

Also, make sure when you are setting up your heli, you have the radio in center stick position when adjusting everything for 90 degrees on the head.

hi cantflyatall
i have been online looking for the WK0701 manual so you can download a copy , but i haven't had any success finding it in a PDF , what i did was to go to google and enter__ WK0701 manual pdf
and i found a ton of hits on it but didn't find a copy i could download
the other thing to try if you bought it online , go back to the site and see if they have a downloadable manual , sometimes they list it under downloads , or it will be a hotbutton on the page that shows the heli , or call thier support line and see if they can point you to the manual , it would really help you with setup and repair , HTH , dana

I was getting ready to try to fly it but I seen the throttle curve needed to match the pitch curve you might as well have wrote that in german I think Ill try to find that manual before I try to fly again. thanks for the info be talking to you again Im sure

What radio are you using?

I may have totally confused the issue. If you are not using a computer radio, none of what I wrote means a dang thing. If you have it so all the servos move the right way to match the stick movements, and everything is properly aligned/adjusted, it will fly. With a computer radio, throttle and pitch curves are programable, but you have no control over any of that on a non computer radio.

hi Way2slow
he has a walkera WK-0701 , http://www.walkera.com/en1/particular.jsp?pn=WK-0701 , and to make it worse , the manual is missing , if it is just a plain vanilla 6 channel , ( with typical reversing switches ) then that might not be so bad , i am i little afraid it is like a venom night ranger TX , with a 12 position mini dip switch that combines functions like pitch , and expo , HTH , dana

hi i just went back to that link and thought , that does look like a venom night ranger TX

and sure enough , here is a front shot and a shot of the back showing the switches , i suppose the good news is a VNR manual should work for him , and should be easier to find

here is a link to the manual for the venom night ranger , i believe it would work for the raptor g2 ( knock knock )
http://www.nitro-toyz.com/venf6230manual.html#download

i'm knocking wood because i'm on dialup and it's a 20meg PDF file , so i'm giving a link i haven't tried

hi cantflyatall
you can try resetting your TX switches to match the picture above , i am thinking it would be better than a random pattern , HTH , dana

Tx switches

I have one of these hanging on my wall. I set mine up to use the heading hold gyro feature. The right side of the switch board is marked at the top right"on". So all of my switches are left or off except #4 which is on.

hi
the switch settings in my photo are the default for a micro venom night ranger , i don't know if a raptor g2 would be the same or not , i was guessing it was , dana

the nice thing about a 12 position switch is that there are only 4096 different combinations i'm glad they at least labeled them

I looked at the manual some before my wife trashed it and it was talking about adjusting the throttle and pitch curve to make it more responsive but I didnt look at it real close. haw can you tell if its a computer transmitter

hi cantflyatall
i don't think it would be considered a computer radio , even though it does have pitch curve ( sorta kinda ) , most computer radios have a screen that lets you modify the pitch curve graphically , this walkera radio allows you to adjust the curve a bit , by flipping one of the switches on the back and then tuning one of the knobs on the front , once adjusted the switch is but back to where it was , HTH , dana

i still think your best bet is to try to find local help or at least a copy of the manual , perhaps call the vender you got it from for a link to the manual
