Hi All!

I hope to be finish by the end of the year. I will post a few pics on Monday if I remember to show off my new indoor flying space I hope. It'll be for the Trex I hope.

I guess I will be behind all of you guys. But then, if I can fly indoors I may catch up. L.O.L.

You're not behind me I can assure you that!

Still getting major shakes when doing fast figure 8 circuits and don't have the balls to try nose-in

maybe I'll give my FMA copilot another try to learn nose in properly but I didn't like the results when I first tried it

Cheers
Tony

Hi

I actually don't know... I bought it 4 months ago but only tested it once... and I didn't like it at the time because It went beserk with my 9C pcm mode... even with the buffer cable installed.

Today I have found another stabilizator system produced by general laser that promises alot of improvements... like inverted hovering and a system that works with futaba pcm systems and digital servos... I'll probably gonna buy it but the cost scares me a little off.... 260$ +/-

I will give my CPM4 (co-pilot) another chance next week... maybe it will work better

Cheers
Tony

Hello !
How you set the co-pilot , cos I'm thinking to buy the cpm8 , but since you want to give up on it and go for the other one , so which one do you gonna buy ?
But the thing is , is it really work's , cos I have see the report for the co-pilot , and also the video too , but don get it how to setup the thing , not really understand the function ? quite confuse about it .
So how is you GV now , does it work ?

The cpm8 probably doesnt have the problems I experienced with the Cpm4 since it uses its own reciever and doesn't have to deal with Futaba's parallel transmition issues.

Its not hard to setup properly the co-pilot. The only problem is that we have strong uv light source around here and the damm thing always gives my +10 points on calibration (which is bad) because de contrast between the sky and earth is too big.

Anyway... the only time I tried it I barely could hover so maybe it had also something to do with the fact that I got scared when the heli started to shake while it was attempting to level the bird off.

Like I said, I'm going to give it another try. I'm going to buy the 3D stabilizer form General Laser (in Austria) anyway because it works flawlessly with PCM, digital servos and Futaba stuff.
This one also permits you to stabilize the bird head down.... for inverted hover practice... should be awesome

If the cpm4 works ok, I'll keep it on the sceadu (analog servos) and mount the new one on the Freya (digital servos).

Cheers
Tony

Hi All!

You should do a search on the co-pilots. I've meet two pilots who has them and does not like them. One removed it and the other leaves the switch off and not use it.

To post pics in your gallery has to be done on Monday unless you have paid for RR service.

Have your pictures loaded up in your computer. On Monday click My Gallery located on the top row. Then scroll down to the bottom and you will see upload photo or file. Click browse to find your pics on your computer and click start Upload. That's it.

If you click it now, you will see that for the free gallery the Start Upload button is faded. It'll work only on Monday, unless you join Club20 for a one time gate fee of $20.00 for 7 day a week uploading.

Looking forward to see your pic's.

Hi

I flew this weekend. Did my figure 8s, circuits around me, piros, double piros and trained some hard breaks and a couple of mini autos. It was more like a test day... I changed fuel brands so I had to adjust the engine, tried out the co-pilot but removed it again (I wasn't meant for that thing) and fine tuned my Revlock.


Cheers Tony

Hi All !
I fly my gp bird yesterday , not the ep caue the wing quite strong yesterday , and almost crash it , luckly not crash cause by the engine failure luckly I turn it back and almost in the landing position still got 6 feet high then the engine suddenly die , and the auto rotation help , otherwise my bird will be gone again
Every one on site are getting crazy when my engine is die , cause last week there is a ducted fan plan also have the same problem and crash to the car , so everyone get scared
I did fly my ep at home compound last few's day's and feel so far so good , nothing happen but still in the learning stage the ep is not easy to fly then gp , ans also too quite and almost not hear the sound , so everytime I fly I always need to pay more attendtion on it , cause not really sure about the movement , and my hand will always move a lot , and then the bird will turn or roll very fast , that's not easy for sure for outdoor , for indoor I heaven't try yet , I am scare it will hit the wall , cause my house are very small , not enought space to fly inside , I hope your house are big enought for the ep flight
What brand of fuel are you up to , I change my fuel from cool power 30% to cool power 25% maybe I will try the 15% later , just for testing only LOL .
BTW what is the plan to all of you ?

Hi All!

I glad to see that some of us was able to fly this weekend.

Here's a few pic's of my future ep site with all interior walls removed in the front half of the house .

This is with one wall removed between dinning & living room.

This pic was the floor problem I had to fix. The floor beam was cut and just ended without supports. Second beam from the right.

As you can see it's not ready yet.

Wow BTDT

Thats what I call "home improvements" heheheh


Anuong: I changed from robbe 20% nitro / 15% edl to Tornado 10% nitro / 15% edl.

Had to lean out the bottom and the top to get similar performance. The fuel works flawlessly. The only problem I notice is that my flights are 2-3min shorter? Kinda wierd since the engine is leaner and has the same speed at the same % on the throttle curve...

Anyway, if the tornado fuel is going to work ok in my YS I'll never look back. This fuel (25€/30$ +/-) costs almost half the price of the robbe one (40€/50$ +/-)

Cheers
Tony

Hey guys ... I just got a Sceadu Evo. Haha

Fixing up the heli now.

Kind of bored by the regular F3C practising.

Just to check with you, is the stock main gear running smooth? Mine is a tiny bit notchy at a particular spot.

Anoung, I think there are more and more Hirobo fliers in the region. Hmm...I wonder if there is any Hirobo Cup South East Asia

Don't worry yapjy

The main gear is notchy at some spots... I was also worried by that and posted in this thread about 350 posts ago HAHA.

After final assembly it will be perfect and if not, after the first flight it will mesh in.

I spent 2 days around that maingear without improvements. Just mount it and try it to be as smooth as possible (it still will be notchy at some points).

Nevertheless... this bird flies like on rails


Do you have the SWM or HPM version?

Cheers
Tony

Hello yapjy !
Yep ! there is I wonder how many heli people in our region ? just in our place we have more than 20 heli flyer mix with raptor , not much but hirobo more than 60% of it here , the thing is the big bird here not much , all small 32 size only and 50 size only a few of us and 90 size only two person include me
How about your's ? I think in s'pore got many 50 - 90 size huh ? ya your right why our region don have any hirobo cup le ?
Why don have the hirobo people come to visite us in our region like the taiwan do le are they thinking of we have too little hirobo and look down to us here or the market are too small ?
Mine also the HPM .

Hi BTDT !
What I can say is WOW what a big room that you have , and that kind of renovation was something for me I will not going to do it by myself , is too complicated for me and also for sure that's took time to do it , no wonder you said not yet finish

Hi tchavei !
Some time I'm not sure about the fuel , cause I'm not really understand about what is the different between the 30% 25% 20% fuel , so what I decide to do is to try all of them , cause the guy's here giving me the answer is not really satisfied for me , so what I do is to try all of them by myself , to see which is the best for use here in miri , cause the weather here is quite hot , about 30 - 35 degree , so not sure which is good for the heli .

Hi all

Anuong: nitro % has nothing to do with weather etc. I only has to do with how much power you get from your engine.

The higher the nitro content, the more power you get from the engine and usually the cooler it works.

I'm just not willing to pay 60$ for a gallon of 30% so I used to use robbe 20% which is 50$ but even so the fuel expenses are quite high.

I have now changed as stated before to 10% and for now I'm happy with it. Usually its the americans (no ofense intended) that usually solve all their engine problems with 30% nitro... if you know how to tweak your needles, you can get away with 10%... you just need to be more carefull about needle settings.


I only flew 5 tanks with this new fuel but its giving me almost the same performance as the 20% did and I don't notice any heat increase. Needles are more sensite... thats true but overall I think it is worth it. Didn't had the time to test the fuel on my YS91 but I'm sure it will work too.

Cheers
Tony

Hi All!

Yapjy, Welcome to the forum.

LMAO
Usually its the americans (no ofense intended) that usually solve all their engine problems with 30% nitro..
Funny thing, I was on CP15% while breaking in my engine. I had problems here and there and was tweaking it. (All part of breaking in an engine.) Some of the other people talked me into 30%. I went for it.

CP30% fuel is more forgiving if the engine is missed tuned, but cost a lot more.

My old living room (18'-6"W x 18'D, 9'-3"H ceiling height) soon to be my bebroom is actually about 43" wider than the pic shown. It's on the 2nd floor so the hallway & staircase is not in the way. I don't think my wife will go for that to fly in the new part of the house. My basement is longer in depth but only a 7' ceiling..

I want a EP now so before I finish construction (painting) so I can fly it indoors. Problem is that I don't have time to build it. I'm dead tied each night I finish work. Then my kids want to spend so time with me.
