Power!!!
Ok, I've been trying to get my new 2 helicopters (first 2 ever) up and running to practice jumping with it with the training gear on.

There is one problem though, I dont have enough Power!!! Even at full throttle its not enough to lift the helo. I tried tinkering with the PIT and PLT knobs, but they seemed to do nothing. I notice that the 3D switch works on it though.
Its a Walkera radio that came with both helicopters.
Anyone know whats going on with it?
Thanks a bunch!!

It looks like Im getting full power. The problem must be the pitch somehow. I tried the PIT and PLT controls, but nothing seems to get it to rise off of the ground.
Also, the tail-rotor and its parts are not secured tight so, if the tail swipes something, it will spin the tail rotor up or down which isnt good. Should I superglue it on? Or is it supposed to be able to move like that?

what heli are you talking about? does the collective change or is that fixed pitch?

Ok, Im sorry. I am probably not using the correct terms as I am not familiar with them yet.
I think the issue may be that I have to flip the switch on the right hand side of the Tx to put the heli in 3D! mode, or whatever that means. Is that the right way to do it?
Because I cannot find a way to get the pitch to a degree that blows wind in either direction of the blades (up or down) and produce a lift off. I guess my main question is, Is there a way to get it off the ground in the normal mode vs the 3D mode? Its a switch built on the Tx that controls Normal/3D mode i guess...

There is a switch in the back to unlock the pit and plt so you can adjust them in flight. You have to look at the manual. Bit first, unplug the motor and give it throttle. You should gain pitch on your blades. If this is happening, then you should be able to get it off the ground.

With walkera products, most times the speed controller will burn out before the motor will. mine got to the point where it would spool up the blades, but when it got to the usual hover spot on the gimble, it would bog. Changed the motor and it did the same thing.

I have a brushless setup if you need one. I used it a for a few days and then went out a bought a raptor. I never looked back.....

wow. Ya, I think you are right. I figured walkera was a good brand when I first saw it, but no one seems to like it. Is a Brushless motor easy to install?

Ya, I tried messing with unlocking the PIT and PLT switches. Im assuming that ON means its locked, but Im trying both combinations.
Nevertheless, Im still getting a pitch change when I increase the throttle, but I think that its being held back by something I did or didn't do...

The tail rotor seems to not even be glued on. I think Im going to glue it to make it not able to twist up and down the boom.

BINGO!!!
I found the same problem that another person had with this same helicopter. He said that he adjusted the "Washout links to 9mm." but I have no idea what that means
lol. whats a washout link?
Thanks!

PS. - He also said he made a positive adjustment of 1,4,11 degrees. hmm

Go and find a club were you can get some help to start with you are more likly to understand what is going on when you are shown what is what.
You can always go back to flying on your own when you have an idea what you are doing! And no Im not being nasty helis can be hard work without a bit of help good luck once you start dont give up it will take time practice practice practice!
