ok im finishing up building my 500 gf and i was wondering... has anybody tried to put fuel tubing on their rx wires to protect them a little?

also i was going to put something like this on there

http://www.walmart.com/catalog/produ...uct_id=9871078

i was planning on bolting it next to the belt so it can absorb static from the belt and discharge it through the pole thing, had anybody tried that before?

one last thing... i dont know if i should put my main rx on the tray or on the bottom, on the tray the wires are pressed up against the plastic since its a 6200...

also anybody who is using a 7703d with a 9257 what length did u put on the ball?

ok flight report... my tail drifts to the right meaning noes left and has a bounce when i move the rudder fast that same direction but its solid the other way... i thought i set it up mechanically but it was gusty this morning, could that have affected it? also does anybody have a tip to get the canopie wider because mine was in the little box and the sides are formed in and it rubs on the gear

Stuff the canopy with something to hold the shape you want, heat it with a heat gun or you can try a hair dryer. Keep checking for the shape you want and don't over heat it!

I've seen pics of people that put a strip of velcro around their gyro. You can never be too careful, I guess.

The instructions for the gyro state to mount it with the included foam and it seems to me velcro may lessen the shock absorbtion factor.

well i tried flying again today and nothing worked... i reset the travel... put the endpoints down to 100%, moved the gain around. checked the rudder... 2 questions kinda... well i didn't redo the gyro tape and the gyro can be moved pretty easy so im gonna try some new tape on friday but my grips have alot of sideways play like their loose but i can't pull them out any so i dont think they loosned up... does anybody have this kind of play with a new heli?

You have to pull the grips to check the bearings, you shouldn't have that movement. I know you don't want to hear that. It's hard to dial in a gyro that moves like jello!

well ive talked 2 a couple of people that say that have alot of play and some people say that don't have much play at all... still doesnt explain why im having drift issues with a 7703d... maybe the tape isn't holding it but i dont see how it would affect it since i was just hovering in one spot and it would drift like that... another thing is when i try to setup my tail mechanically one second it will be fine then the next second it has drift then it will go back to being straight... and this is just hovering not any pitch pumping or anything... but the weird thing is when i do pitch pump it alot it will still have the slow drift but it holds fine

My guess it you've checked balance. That drift should be coming from the gyro.

ok i flew tonight and it didn't have any drift... it did have this weird tail bob when i gave it collective and took out collective which im guessing i didn't have enough gain but it works... my gyro tape is kinda messy cause i did it fast so there are some pieces sticking out and other not long enough but it should be ok... i had +14 pitch and -11 so i gotta watch the finless vids and see what link sizes he did on the 5245s to get them even
