I just got a quick uk full metal head for my R50 and when I give it full posative pitch (+10) and cyclic the mixer arms hit the head button. Any advise

They shouldn't hit unless it's a real large button. Are you sure that you're at 10 deg.? I don't have the UK metal head so I'm not sure how big the button is. I'm running +9 and have plenty of clearance, but I have a relatively small button.

Experience is something you don't get until just after you need it!

There website says it is 30 mm in diameter. Could I have to much cyclic?

Do you measure the cyclic the same way you measure collective?

to measure your cyclics... start by measuring your collective for zero degrees.. In other words set your collective stick at the point in which your blades are at zero degrees pitch.. at that point you can check elevator push the elevator stick to each extreme and measure against the flybar.. make sure to not touch the throttle so the collective stays at zero. then put the blades parallel to the boom (fore and aft) and check aileron stick extremes.. this will give you cyclic measurement

I sympathise!

Had exactly the same problem on my R90 with the full Quick UK metal Head assembly and Washout.

Don't know why, but here's an EASY fix.

Take the head button off and go fly!

BTW, I'm running -9 to +9 and about 7 cyclic pitch, not excessive.

The arms will never hit in flight - when the rotor is spinning. You can make them touch on the bench, but in flight they wont get there. There are a couple of threads on here regarding this if you need more info



Go Fly, Have Fun!!

I think I figured out how to reproduce the problem some of you are having.. I will try it tonight and leave info and the fix if I do... None of mine even come close to hitting.

Raptordan,
Yes very close, I am thinking that the people who are experiencing these problems may not have all of the mixing arms and the washout assembly zeroed, coupled along with having the collective arm not centered. I was able to recreate the exact scenario by setting my collective arm low of center, adjusting all of my links to re-acheive 11/-11 now when my stick is centered the geometry of my mixing levers and washout are no longer correct.. To those that are experiencing this issue try these steps

*Start at collective servo and center servo arm
*Next adjust link for collective tray so that at center stick the washout arms are exactly even with each other..
*Next adjust bell-hiller linkage so that the mixing levers on top are parallel with the seesaw when held flat out Do not align the balls on the end with the center mount as it is off.. align across the arm so that the end balls are flat even with the seesaw.
Now adjust pitch links as necessary to acheive zero pitch at center stick.. This will "zero" out all of your linkages.. I am set this way on all of my Raptors and have no hit or binding issues when at 11/-11 on pitch and 7.5/-7.5 on cyclic.

Hope this helps I will try to take pics later today or tomorrow
