Nope my ZTW was mint .....
100% flat throttle curve laying down the smack/ No cutouts/ No over heating etc
However all 4 capacitors broke off when I crashed!

Thought I'd try something different hence the CC.

Ps. I've assigned the Knob to pitch (DX8)
I'll setup my normal mode for hovering

counters the power needed or conserved by the change in pitch on the tail rotor - without it and no governor the head speed will change and the heli will rise or sink depending on which way you piro.....

If you use the voucher you get when you buy the CC esc you can log onto their website use the code given and they will send you the dongle thingy you plug into the computer for free.

You just plug it into a standard usb lead then plug the other end into the throttle lead on the esc after you remove it from the RX.

IMHO To put that lightly, it ain't the best of ideas I've seen for a quattrocopter.

Saw it on 3 News a few days ago too. LOL the reporter was like "that is... Not... Cool."

I still do that with my KingII. HA HAA!

If Anyone is using a 10mm main shaft and wants a metal compass fly bar head for a 90 - PM me.
I cant get enough pitch range to complete the aeros without binding (peace of mind) etc ... Main Shaft is 10-15mm short. It's obvious to me now the 7HV was not designed for fly bar

You cant get +-11 degrees??

Does your mixing arm, the one on the flybar carrier have 4 holes or two?? if you have four use the two closest together in the middle. This give you the maximum travel or you will need to shorten the length of the mixer base so it does not hit the bottom of the head and the swashplate at its extreme end points. You dont need it for flybarless so you might aswell get the dremel to it and experiment or get a longer shaft made up any machine shop will do it for you i used to get vigor ones made 15mm longer to make it hover better.

Mixing arm has 3 holes - can only get -10 +10 and even then its iffy with binding, Easiest solution is a longer shaft. I have some friends down the road who have a engineering shop, I'll ask them what they think - My concern would be the hardness of the metal?
Will see .......

Off topic - washing machines!
Our old Bosch is slowly self destructing and so the wife has instructed we get a new one.

Been looking at the LG range and current Bosch but have also read good stuff about samsungs.

Budget is about $1500 any recommendations?
