I just got done installing the Hitec hs-55 servos only to find out that they turn cw as to where the esky turn ccw.Is there any way to make the hitec work? I am using the stock tx.I do have a dx6 that I an using on my HBFP,but I hate to try to set the tx to use on my HBKII.The battery in this tx doesnt last long and would take for ever to program

I dont know if you can cause you have to flip the swash settings the ccpm. like in your DX you have the A,E and P channels that need to be switched positive to negative or vice versa.

The only way your going to use those servo is with a computer radio. Get yourself another RX and start programing the radio for your king... OR go back to your old servos....

A better radio is the way to go HOWEVER fellers, there is a way to reverse the rotation of the hitec servos, is it worth the trouble-- NOPE, but if you take the four screws out of the servo, there are four wires that must be switched in order to change the direction. Two are on the motor and 2 are on the potentiometer. Switch the red and green wires on the pot and the orange and brown wires on the motor. When your as cheap as I am YOU always find a way. A better radio is still the best route.

Should of been called Echo8. I miss that heli I actually had to sit down pop out and cut plastic pieces and build every single part. Man did I learn a lot about helis and that manual was in depth. Remember those days doug?

I remember not to long ago I was afraid mark would take away the esky forum but it sure took off lately.

If you gave me the choice between an RTF upgraded belt driven brushless BCPP and an Eco8 kit Id choose the Eco.

Eventually I want to get an old nitro heli and put the best electronics from today on it and see what it will do with a little high tech upgrade... Maybe even convert it to E power...
