pitch gauge question and pitch numbers
First I have an Evo 50 and I am still in the hovering stage. I had a mishap in Delaware and just got my heli back together last night.
I accidentally erased my pitch numbers and I did not write them down.
I was only flying in normal mode and the other two were not set up.
Can someone give me some numbers to start with?
Next is I have a minature aircraft pitch gauge and I wanted to know what side is negative and what side is positive?

thanks, Dave C.

use +9 and -3

keeping the flybar level and sight the top wings of the gauge to align
w/ the flybar, then it's pretty obvious if you're plus/minus

Well, David, negative is when the leading edge of the blade is pointing lower than level and positive is when it's pointing higher than level.

I don't know how this relates to the "side" of the guage, but I think you can probably figure it out.

as to some basic numbers, for normal mode, you want low stick to be about -2 degrees mid stick to be 0 degrees, and high stick to be around +10 or +11 degrees.

hope this helps

I would have to recommend that you setup the pitch curves the same in all modes. That way you wont have to relearn to fly the heli in normal mode later on. Once you progress out of hovering, you should be in idle up anyways.

Idle up doesnt neccessarily mean that you will have to increase your headspeed or anything else for that matter. Its all about building good habits now for flying down the line when you get better and your skills increase.

I learned to fly with the pitch settings at like -5,0,+10 and when i got into using idle up, the change was like learning to fly it all over again.

another good thing about identical pitch setups is that when you are switching from N to I1 mode, or vice versa, you are definitely not going to get any minute pitch changes. If you set it up like -3,0,+10, then you are bound to get minute pitch changes when changing flight modes.

I have set the pitch settings on my heli. I went to the site littlerotors.com and did it like it said. I set the numbers in my DX7 and checked with my pitch gauge. I got -3,6,10. Tomorrow I will test fly it at the field. I hope I did it right.

thanks all, Dave C.

if you have 6 degrees at mid stick then you have not set it up right...

you should have 0 at mid stick!

-12, -6, 0, +6, +12 same for normal ab stunt should be used. no hopping or dropping as you switch modes.
Eventually you will use both. So you might as well start correctly.

Go to littlerotors.com and look at the pitch curve set up section. There is a section where it says for a softer hover. Those are the numbers I thought would suit me. Go see and tell me what you all think.

you should learn good habits from the start. dont learn bad ones and have to reteach yourself.

those pitch settings are gonig to make your throttle curve FUBAR.

you are gonna be applying big pitch to the blades before the engine even spools up.

you can believe what those knuckle heads over here say or listen to the knuckle heads here. you choose. in the end you make the decision!
