Tail direction help!!
Hey guys,

Per many suggestions, I referred to raptortechnique in the construction of my raptor and it helped a bunch. With that said, I either have a big problem or there is a misprint on that website. According to website, at full right rudder stick the slider should be close to the tail case and full left will be close to the blades. http://www.raptortechnique.com/tailpitch.htm

I set mine up this way and when I did my first lift off, the rudder was reversed. For me to get the nose to go right with right stick, my slider will go towards blades, not tail case. Have I done something wrong? I checked the rotation direction and when the main blades spin clockwise, the tail spins counter clockwise.

Any help appreciated

I second the blade grips being backwards. raptor technique is correct. they should be leading edge controlled.

If its between you and Raptor Technique you can usually assume that you are wrong and Mike is right. Andy
