Dears,
I bought a Raptor 30V2 with a Thunder Tiger 39 engine, a Futaba gy240, and a Futaba 2.4 7CH radio. the plane flies good at first but suddenly it starts to turn left (nose left and tail right) by itself and I try to give it a full right rudder but it doesn't respond and keeps turning left until I reduce the throttle then it starts to turn right, also it really is hard to hover because of the engine, it keeps going up and down by itself so I can't keep the altitude steady, I need to know what is wrong with the engine and how to tune it.

I also need to know an approximate number of turns to adjust the low speed needle, I tried to adjust the engine but I couldn't.

Then check out the mainpage for links to engine tuning and many other things. This may help you be more specific in your questions.

Have you considered joining a club and getting an AMA card?

A club field that is heli friendly and has members who fly helis would benifit you greatly.

You have chosen one of the most popular helicoptors and chances are if you meet another heli pilot at your local club field he will be able to help you out with inspection, Mechanical setup, test flight etc.

In the meantime do follow the advice of reading everything you can on the website of http://www.raptortechnique.com I have a 30V2 as well and this websight taught me prety much everything I needed to know about the Raptor.

Good luck Stay Safe and keep us posted

Bob
