Did y'all find that you had to turn your agility down when paddle sim was on? My heli's were just to fast.

Not I at least. I like the feel but I never used expo on my head anyway. I put some in the tail but the head I let fly.

5 flights on my protos stretch. All I can say, upgrade worth it; and I am not even using the governor function yet. (waiting to get rpm sensor) Paddle setting at 20..

The heli flies amazing . My fellow fliers at the field were impressed too.

My agility was 100 on 700e and 90 on 500 before the update. Had to go down 4 on 700 and 2 on 500.

I agree to some xtent on agility, my 600 is on 120 and i like it that way but on the Se and TDR it's too much

Common sense may not be common after all

30 feels pretty good for paddle. I really enjoy this 5.1 upgrade it's nice when things are free with a purchase of a pro upgrade.

Feedback:

I only have one flight on this with my Logo 500, but this is my take on V5.1.

I installed the update, set the paddle simulation to default ( I think was 20) and took her out. I haven't done any trim flights, tweak or anything of the sort.

The main rotor felt good, but it was blowing a steady 23+ mph today and I only have about five flights on this machine total, so I can't really make a good comparison.

What I really noticed was the tail performance. Wow! I think they should have put that as the headline for this update. I love pirouetting maneuvers and doing very slow pirouettes and varying speed pirouettes. I have found this to be the most revealing of a tail rotor system's performance. Most people think cranking the piro rate up and bending the stick to the left is really putting stress on the system. Not so. Try doing a HUGE loop while pirouetting to the right about as slow as possible. If you have a weak system (either mechanically or electrically) it will show up here. That is how I usually tweak my gain setting and find out of the tail is going to stall on me.

The performance that I saw from my single flight today showed me there was a drastic improvement in consistent piro rate and how well the tail held. I slowed the rotorhead speed way down and did the same maneuvers as normal head speed without and difference in tail performance. Usually if you do this without adjusting tail gear ratio, blades or gain, you will stall at the tail at some point. I didn't push it to the limit, but I was extremely pleased with how it behaved.

Thank you to Mikado and all of the beta testers who gave input to make version 5.1 what it is!
