what...?
i am seeing what i think i'm seeing?

what gives with those paddles? that's a new one for me. why don't you just take off the main blades and see if those paddles can create enough lift to get the bird off the ground? HA!

i give it 3 days before this guy is on his way to the emergency room for stitches...

that is the most Whack trexy setup i've ever seen. and one wonders why ones bird won't fly normally.

Good Day: crashed thx to dumb thumbs. Bad Day: crashed mechanical malfunction. Every Day: CRASH :)

Yeah sure, I can see how it could still hover and be more stable in the hover like that, but as soon as you start flying forward at any kind of speed you will find that you will have to straighten those paddles, and then you’ll have to re-learn to fly as it will behave differently.

I agree that it is best you find someone to help you set it up correctly now to save you some pain in the long run. Regarding the rpm, if it is setup correctly, balanced and tracked, it will actually be more stable and ‘locked-in’ with higher rpm, especially when you start doing ff. Just add some weight to the flybar and use a generous amount of expo for the cyclic on the Tx – should be very stable and easy enough then.

But if you prefer to continue like that, fret not, your hover practice will come in handy when you get a Piccolo as I recon the flying characteristics should be similar.

It's a new Align Product
I believe that this is a test for Align's new convertible gizmo. You can fly it, you can beat eggs with it, or use it as a small heater during the winter months. It's just Align's way of integrating their various business units.

Seriously, HeliJunky ... I think you need to go back to the fundamentals here. It's kinda like a golf swing ... if you don't solve the main cause of a poor swing, you keep making "patches and fixes" and then more patches and fixes to fix other problems that come up with your first fixes. Before you know it your swing is so bent out of shape, you need to go back to a pro to learn the fundamentals again.

The guys here are just having a few laughs because they've never seen a T-Rex so "out of wack." The folks here will be glad to get you on the right track to a Rex that flies impressively. Just listen to them. There is a wealth of knowledge here!

In the meantime, be careful with that bird. It looks dangerous from a number of aspects ... parts flying off, batteries exploding, etc. I would indeed strip that bird down and rebuild from scratch following directions to the 'T' before you start to experiment.

We're behind you .... way behind (sorry, couldn't resist).

...
well then...

heli flyin' not for everyone. not for the faint at heart. not for recovering addicts either...

although, i might disagree with that last line... i was an addict for about 7yrs.... got a whole lot of nothing done all those yrs. (hint-- you put it in a pipe and smoke it) the word 'lathargic' comes to mind.

anyways-- enough of my personal bs... i stopped doint that stuff, now i have other less 'gripping' addictions, like WRX's and micro helis... i'm such a perfectionist... this hobby is very challenging, it keeps me on my toes and constantly thinking and hard at work to get better and maintain a good bird-- and with helis, you get a sense of accomplishment when you make progress--- it just feels good!

Good Day: crashed thx to dumb thumbs. Bad Day: crashed mechanical malfunction. Every Day: CRASH :)

LMAO....blaahahaha ...yea my esc and motor are ok... but that bat. is history, on closer inspection i noticed that it had swelled up on one side real bad... so i took me a little sniff , it smelled like some sort of chemical .kind of reminded me of rp 12...lol those days are long gone for me too
i didnt like the idea of something exploding in my face, then or now.. so i didnt even mess with it i just chucked it in the trash...so for now i think i will just sit back and think it out... maybe try too hook up with someone with some knowledge... my goal is to setup and fly like that guy in the video on the other page called auto.s in the rain..

PS think one of you guys could walk me through the setup of my
x400 ? man that would bee cool

thanks hellijunky

I am convinced that someone is "toyin" with us, this can't be real, although I did a search for his past posts...and well maybe it is a reality.

CAUTION
HeliJunky - You need to read up on proper LiPo disposal. I'm afraid that batt could still be dangerous. Go to http://www.rcmaterial.com. They have a good post on proper disposal.

i saw everything you people saw(for hovergirls sake). but i want to know how it ballanced out with the battery under the heli like that???

looking at the swashplate, that is one way to compensate i guess.

if the guy can't setup his heli properly with the stock mechanical setup what makes you think he'll have better luck with a ccpm setup?

And I agree with the lipoly disposal. We don't want another Chicago fire...this time started by a lipoly then a cow

I would say start out by disassembling the heli and rebuilding per instructions. This would include connecting all the linkages to the swash plate.
