Haha...no way... now i wanna try it. Im sure it must totally suck for forward flight tho. Why the hell does this work? Is this acting as some kind of second wing?

Someone make a video of their trex hovering like this.... i broke my camera a couple days ago and havent replaced it yet so i cant do it.

I guess this will teach us to not to be such skeptics. My apologies for all the teasing helijunky. If this turns out to be real your setup may end up actually being the recommended "beginner" setup. So weird....

MY POS Colco Thunderbird (fixed pitch) had flybar paddles that you put a +5 degree angle on. This amazingly helped with the lift and hovered nice. Slow forward flight was not a problem. The heli wasn't really up to anything more than that though. Anything more than 5 degrees and it bogged down pretty badly.

helijunky,

don't mind the bad comments. i can see you're just starting out based your past posts. the heli does fly a little more stable with the paddles angled (i've experimented with this when i 1st started on a piccolo).

however... it's not the way. the best suggestion i've seen here is martinic's (i'm guessing you could use about 2 wheel collars per side).

another thing is do a search for "exp" on this trex forum. most here use about -30% on elev/ail.

this birds hover is very very stable - but only for those who know how to set it up. make sure there is very little slop on your mixing arms and that everything is aligned properly. pay close attn to the last few pics/pages of the trex manual.

also take a look at this post http://www.runryder.com/t153335p1

above all - keep at it..

I have not seen the heli fly but hear me out.

I think you are running a very low headspeed. I don't want you to speed it up yet.

The paddles will act as you say at a low speed.
The heli will fly 20 minutes at a low headspeed.
The motor, esc, or battery can get very hot and or fry at a low speed.

There is too much load on the motor. It needs to spin fast with lower (pitch) load on it. You get more headspeed with the esc and radio set up to give you more power with less pitch on the blades (and paddles).

You need to set up the other side of the aileron linkage. But that binding has to be freed up.
You need a small lightweight training gear.
You need to be out in a big open area with no wind and be safe.

Everything can be solved - learn - read - find an rc pilot near you and get some help. Take little baby steps in learning to fly.

Anyone who says it's a small world never tried to walk to Zimbabwe.
