I know that feeling

I tried putting a lightning five bladed head / SK360 on my Trex 600 for a Hughes 500E a few months ago. After a few weeks of trying I gave up or at least put the fight off until next spring. I put the astock head back on so I could get a few flights in before winter shut me down.

How far along are you and just how much information do you need?

Do you have the head mounted and linkages done?

Basic setting complete in the SK?

I'll try to help you as much as possible.

Here's my settings:

Here's a few shots of the head and heli.

Blade Size

WrenFlyer,
What size blades are you running? Are you using the stock motor?

WrenFlyer,

I'm running 550 blades.

Motor is a Neu 1907/1Y/H (1400 Kv) with a 12 tooth helical pinion and 188 tooth helical main gear. HS is about 1550 currently.

I'm using a LCD terminal as well. It can be tricky moving through and setting the values you want until you get accustomed to the button functions. What's the exact issue you're having?

yep thats it.
well everything really.
on page 11 of the manual it says " the offline setup values are in the lower half of the window"
the default setting is "online" and they are not in the lowerhalf or anywhere for that matter.
then it says "click on the "swashplate tab" havent yet found that nor the "control tab"
i havent either been able to find the "send setup button" as well.
thats where i stopped to ask questions. the menu on the lcd screen isnt displaying anything the manual says is there. i had the guy spend $100 extra hoping this would have been easier and quicker to do.

Initial setup is much, much easier with a computer. I use my LCD Screen for in the field fine tuning.

Yes, it should come with one. Black wire with a small interface box on the end.
