I have avoided any auto training on my real T-Rex yet but I nowI have XTR I'd like to do some training there. I am at all-orientation hovering and FFF. In Reflex I have the no-penalty courage to do inverted and other things I haven't even thought about in real world yet. Still using Reflex mostly to hone nose-in and make very clean circuits, overall control and orientation, etc.

I am only guessing as I don't have any real world comparison but I think that the XTR T-Rex model (the newer one at t rex tuning dot com) I have has some pretty unrealistic characterisitics for autoing. It seems to have TONS of intertia that keeps this thing going for a long time. When I go to throttle hold and the engine goes to idle I can still lift off from the ground many seconds later while the rotors seem to have 90% or greater of their speed. There is no downward force keeping the RPM up and they just spin and spin for much longer than they would on my heli if I throttle held. I've also read plenty online stating that the Rex in particular is no champion at autoing.

Am I right about the XTR model behavior and can someone provide some tips for modding the parameters of the model to better allow me to do some auto training on the TRex XTR model? In general any changes that people have made that they feel add realism to the models flight characteristics would be great. Overall I've been pretty happy with the model, its great to have but I am starting to feel that it could be improved a bit in this area.

Thanks for any help.

Best,
d.

I'm not seen many auto's with a TREX, they come down like a golf ball and suddenly run out of lift - which is ok above grass

hi

if you go into the settings for the main rotor and adjust the rotor moment of inertia its set at about 0.06 adjust to 0.005 and try that although it dosent really auto at that setting but it probably similar to the real thing.never flown a t-rex though hope this helps.

Unless you have yardsticks for blades, Trex's don't auto worth spit.

I appreciate the advice, especially regarding actual settings for Reflex, what I was after. I get the Rex doesn't auto well at all and yes, I get there is no room for error. While I'm sure Reflex won't be some incredible substitute for reality in autoing or just in general I'd think there is some better way than just having Reflex act COMPLETELY wrong and allow me years to float down on an auto. I'm not after perfect, I'm simply after... better.

See my gallery for a video of some autos with my T-rex - near the bottom of the gallery.

Autos great if you get rid of the driven tail!

I tried the T-rex for reflex XTR.
Seems pretty nice, I am pretty
much set on getting one this week, so will
be looking forward to it.
XTR Evo is pretty close to my Evo 50, so
how does the T-rex fly compared to the sim?
Just curious.

Autoing the Rex isn't that bad, well its possible but I like autos and practice them a lot - the hardest thing to auto I've tried for sure.

This is fairly stock Rex, it still has the driven tail on 335 woodies as well which are very light.
