Hi guys
Well I'm jumping in this thing full bore. Got rid of my Trex 450, and now have a Raptor 30 V2. and a Futaba T7CAP radio....
Ok I'm in a great deal of #@*&^ right now. This my first real computer radio, and I'm asking anyone that can give me some numbers to plug into my radio to at least have a starting point to get it to hover.
Anyone with any info will make me so happy.... Right now I'm getting tired searching the web comeing up with nothing I can use. Because I really don't know what part of the info I can use on my radio.
Thats it... I need some guideance...

The best guidance I can give you is read the manual for the radio then read the manual for your heli. Keep reading both until you actually understand them both. After that, everything will be much easier. I and I'm sure others here will be happy to help clarify any specific points you're having difficulty with.

Radio setup for raptor

dsl11us
Thanks for the offer. I'll keep you in mind.
For now I'll keep reading all the info I can get my hands on. I know it would be a pain to send someone step by step instructions with all the numbers to put into the radio, but if I ever figure this out I'm going too.
A start here and end here instruction.
The guy that put my Trex 450 into hover for me didn't show me much on the radio. (DX6 )so this computer radio is kicking my butt.... some of the terms I'm have trouble with....
So guys wish me luck... the weather is soon to turn warmer ( Michigan ). Time to get going.
To all that offered help I thank you, I'm sure I'll be bugging you real soon.
Thanks my new friends
Bob

If you now have a futaba and initially had a DX6 don't worry about not being familiar with the settings on the DX6. Futaba and JR use different values and terms for most of the setup. Some settings that are + on JR are - on futaba. If you are going to stick with futaba you are better off not knowing how the DX6 was setup.

Working on the setup of my r30, going smooth. Only problem to date was the throttle arm on the os37. Had trouble lining it up as it does not stick out far enough to clear the frame. Then, it barely clears the mavrick pipe. Had to trim the pipe mounting screw and not use the metal gasket, just permetex. Let me know if you have any questions.

My Raptor 30 V2 manual describes how to do the mechanical setup reasonable well. Set it up as described and you should be OK.

The manual also gives suggestions for the radio setup. To setup a radio you have to understand what you are trying to accomplish. I don't recommend dialing in somebody elses numbers. You need to be able to set values and check on the helicopter that they produce the correct result.
Tools needed are minimal and consist of a pitch gauge, ball link pliers and maybe a good ruler. Also, don't forget to balance the blades before mounting.

I highly recommend some reading about the theory behind it.
There is a good webpage giving step by step instructions. following these procedures should actually get you there.

I am happy to help if you have questions in the process if you PM me with your number.
