Tracking And Slamming
At What position if any do you dial in your tracking? Tried it at mid stick at zero, but ran out of linkage. And what are the throttle seettings that I wont slam down when I cut the throttle..........................Z

Easy thing to do is let the heli spool up to where its almost getting light on its skids and then kneel down and ckeck your tracking. Mark one blade grip before you do this so you kno what one to adjust, or mark one blade, perm marker works well. The spew from the motor will remove the marker.

I'm sorry, I should of explained better. When I cut the throttle, the heli slams down. is this due to pitch, or throttle settings?

More then likely it is in your pitch settings that is causing it to go to the ground. When I set my helis up I use a 5 point curve and set the heli up so that all flight modes from point 3 and up are the same. I always switch modes in the air so that I am above the third point and the pitch stays the same. I also set up throttle hold the same way and that curve matches my normal mode with about -6 for the low end. Chuck

Yep, I did that too when my throttle hold curves were different from my idle up mode. Slammed it.

zen,

When you say, "Cut the throttle," do you mean via the throttle hold switch? If so, it sounds as if your throttle hold pitch at the stick position where you where when you hit the t.h. switch is a fair bit lower.

Solution: make the pitch the same in those two flight modes at the stick position you are in when you hit t.h.

I have a Helimax AXE With a DX6. I have a pitch Guage. At 1/2 Throttle I tried to level or track the blades. I had to extend the linkages to make them level, but I Screwed the linkage all the way out so far that the linkage cam apart. I didn't have enough travel to extend the links to where I needed them. Is this because I tried to track the rotors at 1/2 throttle? I think I need to get my tracking in order befor I set my pitch curves.

No, I track mine using the "on the knees" mentioned earlier and its a good start as long as there is some load on the blades.But be carefull it doesnt lift off when you arent ready!Its hard to fly eyelevel and observe the blade tips so I use a friend sometimes to help. Just screw both the links back in 3 or 4 or more turns and reset your pitch curves to compensate and start over. When tracking,always screw in a link,not out.
