this poor little forum. all alone with the TDR going strong in the e-section.

is anyone still flying their 3DNTs? I just put 3 tanks through mine today in a big, open blue sky with a few puffy white clouds. i'm still as smitten with this thing as ever.

nice to think i only spent about $2 worth of fuel, too :-D

if it ain't broke, break it.

How would you say your heli compares to the electric?

never flown a TDR. but, even comparing it to my trex 700E, it cant touch that kind of power.

the NT flies great and has decent power. but, the zero nitro makes it lose any 'pop'. i'm running it at about 1900-1950 with 690s. i prefer 710s on a 700-class but the motor bogs with the longer blades.

with the 690s the best i can get it tuned it will only drop about 200 RPM, but will take 12.5° full collective/full cyclic commands indefinitely when loaded up like that. I put on the MP FBL head a while back. So, this is all on vbar.

even so, the NT has a certain feel. ask anyone who's ever flown one. it's hard to describe. it's a very precise machine. something about the way it flips and rolls at the same time. it's very graceful. very powerful. very smooth. my trex 700 does not have that. i would hope the TDR possesses this trait. but, i don't have the hands on to say. but, it's definitely a big part of the reason i love this machine.

if it ain't broke, break it.

I had a 3DNT for several years now and couldn't get it to run right with the zero nito. Thinking of convert it to electric. My TDR is my best flying machine when it come to speed and precision. Can't compare the DNT fly charateristic since I could not get it to fly.

Miss the nitro and fly-bar machine!

i know what you mean. tuning a zero nitro and actually tuning a tuned pipe was a learning experience for me. being used to just setting a gov and going made it even trickier--disabling the gov/setting proper curves , etc. to tune. it became a game of tag...tune the engine, retune the pipe, retune the engine, etc. etc.

it really was a years long learning process for me (with a break somewhere in there to convert to FBL).

honestly the best advice came from this forum's input nearly 10 years ago now---thank you search!

if you still have the NT, and feel like breaking it out to tune again...have a read at Pascal's first post on this thread. start with Jan's recommendations in the manual for pipe position and needle settings and go from there. i have mine flying really well doing nothing more than richening up just a bit on the low end from the pinch test, and adjusting the high end so the head doesn't get too hot. then, you just play with the pipe location until you get it 'going on pipe' at the RPMs you like.

good luck.

if it ain't broke, break it.
