I've figured out most of it got every thing working like it should but I can't get enough positive pitch in normal mode to get it off the ground and when I try to adjust it something else ends up wrong. like my swash plate ends up working backwards. don't know what I'm doing wrong.

I took some advice and tried to find a flying club or someone with some knowledge, but the people at the hobbie shops here should be shoe salesmen, they know less than I do. I'm in Mt. Carmel IL how do I find a flying club here or even if there is one.

hi
you can increase pitch , put switch ten to on position , and now the knob ( V1 ) on the left , will control pitch , once you have enough pitch to fly , set switch ten back to off , and that will lock in the setting , HTH , dana

Thats what I've been doing, but when I do that the swash plat starts working backwards, do I need to turn something else off or could there be something wrong with tx. More then likely I'm just not smart enough to figure it out

hi
probably not a problem with the TX , and it's not because you are not smart enough either , i think you have gotten farther than most would , considering , it has to just be something with the setup we are missing , the manual for the VNR i have says to note the position and then disconnect the motor plug , this will let you mess with the pitch curve , without spinning the blades , make sure you hold the flybar level while you check the pitch , HTH , dana

Sorry to say but I had similar problems with a Venom 3DXL. Even following the manual things went screwy everytime I adjusted anything. I finally bought a good Futaba radio and faired much better.

Rappy G2

Is this G2 CCPM? My G2 has a pitch servo with a wire going up through the main mast. If this is the case you just need to loosen the set screw on the pitch servo linkage and move the wire up to give it more pitch. It may be as simple as the set screw on the pitch servo attachment is loose and slipping. The pitch servo and linkage can be found under the main gear and main shaft. The pitch linkage goes through the mainshaft from the bottom.

hi
good call BeltFedBrowning , from what i've seen it is as you say , like the old shogun , with a pitch wire up through the mainshaft , at full pitch he would want 6 or 7 degrees i would think , that would get it hovering , good work! , dana

the wire was loose on the pitch servo, I fixed it and got to hover it for the first time, and it was great, just that small aclompishment was awsome. Is there a magazine out there that will tell you how to build one from scatch just in case I tear it up beyond my ability to reason it out. I think I'm hooked for life.

G2

I don't know of any publication that specifically tells you how to build/rebuild your helicopter. If you stay in this hobby you will become very adept at building and tuning. You have already learned how the pitch works on your helicopter, soon you will be flying your fleet of helis into the sunset. Welcome to heli's and let us know if you have any more trouble.
I still have a lot of fun with my Raptor G2 in the house on rainy days. They are really good little helis no matter what they say!
