Could one of you fine Eolo owners get a swashplate measurement for me??? When I give 10 degrees pitch...I am not able to give any forward cyclic because the rear servo clevis hits and stalls the servo.

I must have something wrong but cant see what.

Could somebody give me a measurement ot the swash at full pitch from the main head where it bolts on.

I am trying to get +- 10 degrees, this heli will do that wont it????

the rear clevis can foul on the anti rotation plate if the servo arm isnt the right length...

need a longer/shorter arm

Thats an idea

I will try that, I have some long servo arms for my Logo, I was afraid the different length arms on the servos would mess the swash movement. I will try that today. Thanks

IN The Air!!!!

I hovered it today and it is a really smooth little heli. I think I will like it.!!!

Only thing is the tail servo wire that runs back to the tail keeps popping out of the holder that is in the middle of the boom then the tail goes nuts. I need to figure a way to fix that quick.!!! Any ideas out there????

get it as lined up as possible when the servo is at 90 degrees...

glue the guide to the boom, and it should stay put

Hivoltage, did you say that the different length servo arm on only the rear of the swash did not affect the flight performance? Mine does the same thing. I reduced the servo travel (85%)on all three so that i now have no bind. I have yet to fly as of yet but just making sure my set up is right first. The only thing I have left to figure out is the fact that my pitch is wayoff. It is like over the measurement of my guage when it is at full pitch. and almost 5.5 at full low pitch. I guess ill adjust the links to lower the whole swash.

Thanks Mckoi, I will try that.

Nofeulheli, when I put the longer arm on, I reduced the ATV on that servo til they all moved the same distance, then set the swash CCPM til I got the proper pitch range. I adjusted the 3 arms coming from the servo so that pitch was 0 degrees at mid stick set at 50%

My Eolo had the same problem, the push rod would pop out in flight and add to the tail vibrations. I installed a zip tie on the pushrod guide just above where the rod slides through it. This seems to stop the problem.
