Hey gang, I flew helis a long time ago with my trusty 8103, Now that i primaraly fly Foamy 3d planes with no mixes i sold it, But now i wish i hadnt. I would like to get a Heli again, Electric, not CCM and fly it around my backyard. But the only radio i have for air is my XP652. Can anyone tell me if it is possiable to set it up and fly with? I had a friend do all my mixes and he didnt teach me what everything did.

If someone could tell me EVERYTHING i need to mix in, and how to use switches that would be great!

The radio has switches for

Flight mode
throtal hold
and individual dual rates.

If i remember correctly i had all sorts of curves and stuff on my 8103 but i dont mind flying with just the basics till i decide if i want to go deaper into helis

Thanks

Alex

Do you have the manual that comes with the radio? I just went thru this with my XP652. Yes it is possible to fly with it. You have to sit down and study the book and figure out where you want each switch to be. I took my throttle hold switch and put it up on the top left corner.....where it should be. Then I set my throttle hold curve from 100% low stick, 50% mid stick, and 100% high stick. This is of course for collective pitch setup. I am having trouble with the gain channel on the RX for the gyro right now but hope to have it resolved by tonight. Make sure you go in and turn off the CCPM. Factory settings it is turned on.

GOOD LUCK!!!

For someone to tell you everything you need to know about how to set up your radio, they would need to know which heli, which gyro, the type of swashplate control, the motor...and then you would only get a place to start from.

Oh, they would also need to know what features your radio has to work with. The XP652 manual isn't on-line with Horizon, and a quick search of the web didn't produce any hits on a copy of it.

So, you're going to have to post a bit more about what you have, and hope that someone out there is familiar enough with that radio to get you on the way.

In the end, you're going to need to know how to set up a heli anyway, if you plan to stay in the hobby for any length of time.

Maybe there is a heli pilot close by that you can call on for help.

A non printable copy of the 652 manual can be found here......

http://www.macgregor.co.uk/NewWeb/O...uals/X652-1.pdf

It will stay up for 24hrs and then I will have to remove it.... please pm me when you have it.

Sorry, seems that there was glitch in the link, but all sorted out.

I took a look at the manual, it's not much different than the XP662 I used to fly in my helis before I got the 8103.

I still have te 662 and its manual, so if, and when you pick up a heli, I might be able to help you get going.

The 652 will do the basic things you need for a heli -- it has a way to switch gyro sensitivity, a couple of 3-point pitch curves, a couple of 3-point throttle curves, and will even do CCPM should your heli be set up for that kind of swash control.

Until you pick a heli, the rest isn't easy to define.
