I'm using a spartan gyro and setting it up in a new Rave. I'm using a 3500G servo.

I set the servo horn length at the recommended 12.5mm. My rudder travel limits are 50 to 85. Generally, i like my limits higher (ie. 80 to 110 on my N9) on my big helis.

I'm wondering what you Spartan/Rave users' limits are (and what servo horn length you are using) and/or if you think the lower than expected limits i have will affect gyro performance. I understand that lengthening the servo horn distance will allow me to increase those limits, but that will change the pushrod geometry somewhat, while it seems optimal at 12.5mm.

Thoughts?

Hi,

My spartan limits on a 3500G are Hi 65 and low 58. I did move the ball in one notch. Have full acceleration and deceleration. Quite low gain on the radio, however, it really rox, rock solid.

So don't worry, just fly.

Why are you setting the travel limits in the radio and not at the gyro?

I am setting them as per the instructions provided by Spartan (using the heli, the gyro and the transmitter).

I am reading the numeric values of the limits off the configuration utility, via the USB link.
