Hi, first of all i'm BRAND NEW at this, so please keep in mind that I know very little about RC heli. Anyway, I bought an old blade CP and now i need help to adjust the thing to make it actually fly. I charged battery and everything seem to be working. Took it out for a test flight. The main blades spin real fast, however I cannot get it to lift of the ground. I think the problem is to adjust the pitch (which i have no idea what it is), and the trimming on the stock transmitter. Please help.

I have text, aim, yahoo, skype, oovoo, facetime. ANYthing that is more convenient for you to help me.

btw i'll be sitting here waiting for respond, all day if i have to.

Do a goggle search there's some older threads and videos on the CP. To be honest you'll fight it the entire way. IMO it's a terrible 1st heli.

Try here the Blade forum.

so i did everything the video said. However, when i push the throttle up near max, it doesn't seem to have enough power to lift, it still spins pretty fast.

Bad battery or worn out motor,gear mesh the list is endless. I suggest you find the local neighborhood heli guru and ask for assistance. Without a hands on inspection we could go back and forth forever and not solve the issue.

Sorry

with throttle hold ON.if you put the throttle stick at 50% the blades should be at 0 pitch.check this first

also the stock brushed motors dont last very long you may need to replace that

Another possibility is it was crashed and incorrectly reassembled. I've see that more than once on the Blade series. It's very easy to screw the mixing arms up if you don't know any better.

ya i check the pitch is 0* when throttle at 50% in stunt mode. The main motor just suddenly loses RPM when i throttle it to 80%+. Plus the tail motor is spiking too, spins then stop then spins. Also, i dont know if i have the 3 linkage arms length correct, i just dont know how the swash dish position suppose to be, the length of the links...

My advise still stands find someone who knows what their doing before you hurt yourself or worst someone else. It's very apparent you don't have the heli knowledge to deal with this. If you insist on going it alone download the manual and go to square one. If you really want to fly heli's you don't have to spend a fortune but please seek out someone who can guide you in person. I just hope you didn't pay to much for this.

i had a little 3ch for a while, but then i wanted something better that can actually fly outside. found this for $40 on craigslist. I had no idea it's going to be this complicate. Anyway, is it most likely to be the motor when my heli loses RPM at 80% throttle ?

So i took the heli to a local shop for the guy to inspect it. He said everything is good, it is just the battery is not giving it enough power. So he told me to go home and charge/discharge the battery about 15 times to get it's power back (i also called the person that sold me the heli and he told me that it has been sitting around for 3 years). Anyway, am i suppose to run the battery ALL the way down till the blades stop spinning? also, he told me the servo arms are off and they need to be at 90 degree. When are they suppose to be at 90 degree? when the throttle is at 0? 50%? 100? or the swash position. I just forgot to ask him about those details.

Sent ya a PM with some info. IMO that battery has probably seen it's better days and should be replaced. Please follow the links I sent to get a better grip on what your doing.
