I think I'm at the point of hooking up my V3 after doing all the preliminary checkouts and a couple circuits without it, just to see the difference. I have had start up problems, almost always after the motor has warmed up. I talked to Joe about this and it may be as simple as too coarse of a throttle movement using the stick. Joe, I found my throttle trim (right where it's supposed to be) so I will try that to see if there is a difference. I have the 24-4 Motor with the standard 23t pinion (I think), running the stock Joker 700mm mains, stock tails and SAB 20g CF paddles.
So, back to my next objective of hooking in the V3. My trim pots on the board are labled 'N', 'I' & 'P' (Pots @ bottom; left to right). I assume these relate to the "N', 'G, & 'I' pots described in the instructions and on previous threads here, but the order seems different. Anyway, I have set them at N=6, I=2, P=4. I see in the instructions that it is suggested to decouple the throttle from collective. Although I can do that on my EVO with no problem, what is the general setup you guys with the controllers enabled are using?
My biggest problem in hooking this baby up is that I'm not quite sure what to expect from the heli/throttle.Soft start and then right to speed until you bring throttle back (is this why they suggest a slider on the decoupled throttle?).
I will say I'm enormously happy with the Joker. Very nice, smooth and the sound is terriffic. In fact, I had to call Joe about the sound the tail blades were making.... Never heard that before in all my heli flying!
