Looks like it'll take a while to figure setting this heli up. Anyways i'm curious if i need a stronger servo for anything? I know the hitec 605 bb are pretty strong for the price. Any suggestion before i install the servos?

As for the Gyro i'm thinking about buying a futaba 401 with servo combo for my tail rotor.

Any advice are welcomed.

thanks!

3001's will work just fine and the 401 combo is hard to beat

I have been flying the same combo without any problems. I feel the 3001's are a good match for the r30. I have seen some run faster servos on the throttle or 9202 on the collective but I like the idea of keeping the overall price to a minimum.

Servos

3001's are fine for "normal" flying. When you are ready to upgrade, put a 9202 on the collective. That will get you through basic aerobatics (loops and rolls). The 9202 is an all-around excellent servo.

When you are ready for basic 3D, put a 9202 on the pitch and roll as well.

When you are ready for heavy-duty 3D, remove the 9202 from the collective and put a 9402 or a digital servo on the collective (depending on your budget). Put the 9202 you took off the collective and put it on the throttle (or just hold on to it as a spare).

Stick to the 3001's. They will take you all the way from hovering to basic aerobatics. Spend your extra $$$'s on a good simulator if you haven't bought one yet.

Actually the sim is what got me into flying heli. I love rc cars and decided to buy the G2 to see how well would I do. For some reason i really liked heli's and love the challenge. I wanted to land on the picnic table in fun fly. I think that little task taught me how to hover on the sim. Now i just want to try all the crazy stuff on a real rc heli.

I have no idea on setting up the remote and 3D like the sim. I still need to balance my blades and adjust the angle on the elevators. Do i need a tool for that? Or i just set up everything when i try my first hover.

I am using the 3001 on every control of my r30, including the tail, 100over flights now, not yet having any problems with the servos.

Here's an excellent supplement to the R30 manual:

It's very comprehensive and should get you through the assembly process just fine. Once you're ready to go, I highly suggest that you first ask an experienced flyer to check and trim your R30 before attempting to fly it yourself.

Thanks for the newer version! I think i found an older version online somewhere.

I was sort of worred that i should of went with the 9chp with the 9001 servos instead of the 9chf. It probably would of been a better choice but i'm already over my budget of my orginally intent of spending $300 (rd6000 super) on a radio. I went to the 9chf b/c my LHS said that the flight area he goes to uses 9c's so, i figure i can get more help if needed.
