They are $121.99USD so with the current exhange rate and GST it works out at $185-$190

I assume he means $180 not $80 I can't even get them landed in NZ direct from Align for $80 even without GST

Yap. Shop price in USD from memory, no tax nor shipping. But have they gone that expensive now? They better match the performance of Funkey OEM blades. Hashimoto is flying them with his fbl 700 so probably not far off?

Ray. Hows it going? I would suggest you are pulling back and left during your loop, which is very common not only in RC but also fullsize. Telling you to pull back directly to your old fella (as we did in fullsize aeros instruction) probably wont work here but the principle is the same. I have never heard of ELEV to AIL mixing but I definitely have AIL to ELEV mixing for my rolls to keep them more axial, but that is another topic in itself.

What I did do though was tightened the springs in my transmitter cyclic pots, so that once I had a good level attitude set before the loop it was easier for me to feel the detent so I knew if I was pulling straight back or introducing a roll. What I do now though as well is I have 2 sets of upperair dualrates/expo.

For my looping aeros I have 10% expo in elev and 30-40% in roll and rudder, so that if my fingers do go a bit wayward during a loop I wont hopefully introduce too much roll or yaw.

Dont you just hate this hobby!!!!

Dont tell him our secrets

If its rolling of at the top of the loop it may not be trimmed properly in fast forward flight either and your stance is wrong try more pressure on the left foot and put your tongue in the right cheek, works for meLOL and you thought 3D was hard.

Is it rolling out at the top of the loop or turning on the tail causing you to be in the wrong place when you pull elevator, to fix the result we need to know what the cause is.

I checked my rudder expo in idle up2 which I use for my aeros - noticed I had 0% - threw on 30% for a laugh, resulting in much better loop! Now I can start practising the cuban8

Go mode 1 then you don't have to worry about inducing roll while pulling back.

I know top pilot do and one shall run cyclic mixes to keep things on the same pane as Callum have shared, and used to have those when 600N still fly-barred but my VSG will loop funny and barrel roll with them on Still working on finding out why.

Hi there,just wondering if there are any members that live around here,I live close to kinloch on a life style block (great flying site). Like to meet some Nitro flying members that live around here.

700E V2+ Wanted
Dont mind I giving this a go... I am tired of chasing needles with my YS91 and am after a 700E V2 and later headless mechanic to do more flying then "screwing" around. I don't mind how many time you've crashed it as long as damaged parts have been replaced. Budget is around $400 and will pay extra if you have V2 flybarred head or DFC head. Crashed kit will also be considered.
Hopefully you are within 2 hr driving from Auckland but I will like to have a holiday in Taupo too.
Please PM me if this sounds like you and your 700E

Cheers,
Ramins

F3C setup for my 7HV

Compass Head w/ soft dampners (o delta & soft settings on the arms)
490mm fly bar w/ Hirobo 49g Paddles ( weights half way along the flybar)
Align F3C blades
HC3-SX (gyro only)
CC 120HV Esc
HV Savox (cyclic) BLS251 (rudder)
WS 6C 5500mAH 60C lipo packs

I use Idle-up1 for the hovering manouvers / Head speed is 1700 - 1750 depending on wind - I find the 7HV sits best at this rpm etc ...... Pitch Curve is linear 0% - 100% / using 30% expo cyclic / 20% expo rudder

Idle-up2 for Aeros - 2100 Head speed , cut my expo to 20% cyclic / added expo to rudder 30% / pitch curve is linear 0% - 100%
/ pitch range is -11 to +11

With the 2 HS I'm using for the complete shedule, I'm only putting back 70%-75% into my packs - few ....
I played with different fly bar lengths/Paddles/Rpm/Weights/ratios/blades/Expos etc ..... I've come up with a set up that feels best me for me ..... Now its just practise!

Cheers to all of you who helped me with advice/tips/info on the F3C subject.

Your all bloody Legends

PS ...... Don't forget to practise your 3D too

Why are not using normal mode for hover, idle 1 for looping aeros and idle 2 for rolling aeros this way you have flexability and an extra flight mode. With idle 1 for hovering you cant utalize the hover pitch and hover throt functions in the radio to quickly adjust your model if its windy one round and calm the next. You cannot flatten your pitch curve or make it steeper if its windy. You also limit your mixing to one flight mode ????

What model are you going to use now 3d

I did read that from the Simon, Seemed 1 setting for the loops and rolls worked for me. I never thought to use the knobs to flatten the pitch or throttle in normal mode (sounds like a good idea tho) the only thing I was changing was the throttle curve via tx if it was windy/no wind - I left the Pitched curve alone. Cheers for pointing this out Wayne

Are you running a gov. ?? if not you will need to mix rud to throttle to the left you increase the throttle and the right you reduce the throttle, this is for when you do your hovering piroettes.
Dont worry to much about the throttle curve adjust your pitch curve to suit the conditions as this is what controls the height and how fast you correct any wind changes.

Ive been playing with the head setup on the rave and now it sits in the wind and does not jump up or down when a big gust of wind comes thru unlike it did in Auckland, you never stop learning.

I'm just using flat throttle curve - No governor
you will need to mix rud to throttle to the left you increase the throttle and the right you reduce the throttle,
Dose this mean when i piro to the left, the throttle increses?
Piro to the right, throttle decreases? Is all this done with mixing?

Wow, This is out of it stuff!
