Assuming that you are not running a governor, you will have to bump up the throttle curve above half stick.

What are the numbers on your throttle curve now?

I'm not sure about your radio, but you need to raise the throttle curve. I'm sure if you search around the web you'll be able to find a downloadable version of the manual, http://www.jrradios.com would probably be a good place to start.

Leaning it out will also help, but don't go to lean.

Go to <http://www.raptortechnique.com> you will find the throttle curves there.
If you have any questions after reading that, just post them here. That's where I initially got my setup. Do you have anyone with a pitch guage and a tach that can give you a hand?

I am not sure how much smoke is a lot to you, but if there is a lot of smoke then you are running it way rich.

You might want to buy a tach which will tell or teach you if you have a the right headspeed.

If you don't have a pitch gauge then get one. If you want to hover around 1500 rpms then you can probably set your pitch at midstick to 6 degrees and 5 degrees for about 1700. Then change your mid throttle curve to hover. These are just in the ball park figures and are about right for most helicopters.

If you can't get zero pitch your links must be way out of adjustment. With the mixing arms parallel with the swash plate you should be at zero pitch. You should be able to get -12 at the bottom of travel and +12 at the top. Check the manual and set your lengths on you links to what it shows. It sounds like you have your links off and you have way too much positive pitch.

Setting up the heli properly makes learning so much easier. It sounds like you really need to find a local heli pilot and have them help you get setup properly. It will make it much easier.

You need to go to raptor technique. Try to read everything. His website will probably help you a lot if you do.

Sounds like you might have the links reversed on your mixing arms. Get yourself some help. If you still have the installation instructions, go over them again.
Like the old saying goes, If it doesn't work read the instructions. If it still doesn't work, follow them!

man i cannot express more exuberantly the outstanding need for someone very expirienced with this sort of hobby to thouroughly look over your helicopter. a veterans know how and help although not really wanted ----is needed.i understand that sometimes you cant really get to or speak with someone of this nature, it is times as this when people on forums such as this will help,you just have to weed aout the a-holes. if you do not have a raptor manual i would suggest goin to 3drc.com. there you can down load a manual for your heli.other than that it osunds like you have a good know how but need just that extra little bit of help. just remember static setup then electronic setup!! keep flyin and tryin

He's not being a comedian or an a-hole. IMHO he made a serious comment. If you take the time to spell check everything and use good grammar and punctuation, then it will be *much* easier to read your posts. If it's easy to see what you're asking, then more people will be inclined to reply. Honestly some of your posts just look like a mass of random words and numbers and I'm sure that a lot of the really knowlegable guys here are just skipping over your questions when they could be giving you advice.

Anyway, I agree with the rest of the guys. It sounds like all your links are way out and to be honest you shouldn't even be attempting to fly the heli as it is, never mind trying to tune the headspeed.

Get a copy of the manual and study it until you understand completely how the head goes together and how it works. Then strip the head down and double check all the links are set to exactly what it says in the manual. Check everything with a pitch guage - if you haven't got one, buy one. This will give you a good starting point, and you can tune from there.

Seconded. I would also suggest tuning your engine properly before sorting out the head speed. Don't just lean it out as you could kill it. Simplest method is to check the engine temperature by holding your finger on the backplate. You should be able to hold it there for a few seconds without discomfort. If the engine is rich, it will be cool, if the engine is too lean, it will be too hot.
